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 really do miss Buddy. I got him on October 10th, 2005, one day before my birthday. I told him all of my problems and I swear he listened so well. He was the best fish I ever had. It was my fault he died and I am so mad at myself for it. I hadn;t cleaned his tank in about 2 weeks and it was very dirty plus we had no fish food so he didn't eat for a few days. Every morning I would look in his tank and say hello Buddy. One mornig I woke up and he was dead in the corner of his tank. I wanted to bawl my eyes out. At least he is in a better place now. I can't wait to see you over the rainbow bridge Buddy. I'll love you forever.
