Pet Tip

Dog is a Crotch Sniffer – Pet tip 245

Most dog owners are aware that dog noses are extremely sensitive. This is due to the quantity of olfactory or ‘smell’ receptors in a dog’s nose. Whereas humans have around five million olfactory receptors, dogs have two hundred and twenty million. This makes their noses exponentially more sensitive than a human’s. Most times a dog’s sensitive nose works to our benefit. All kinds of dogs are used as service dogs to help humans find missing people, sniff out explosives, drugs etc. They can smell people coming from quite a distance and alert us to their presence. There are some embarrassing occasions however, when a dog’s nose is just too sensitive from our human perspective. Most notably this occurs when dogs try to sniff humans in their private areas.

This behaviour is a common one in dogs and equally common is the fact that it upsets most dog owners. The reason some dogs sniff at a human’s private parts is the same reason they sniff the private parts of other dogs. We know that when they smell other dogs in this way they can tell the sex, rank (is the dog more dominant or submissive) age and other information about the dog.

I would like to let you all know about my little baby. From the day we got her she was like a child to me. She slept with me, ate with me, and went everywhere with me. She was a great joy to have around and always knew when I was sad.
I wish she was still here with me today, but i know that cannot be. Trixie got run over by a car in March 2000 and that is a time I will never forget. I never got to say goodbye to her because I was out of the province at the time.
But I would like to use this page to pay tribute to her and say Goodbye.
Trixie, I love you. May you rest in peace.
