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.

Hi, my name is Milo, and I am a real character!  I love to steal just about anything and make my mommy and daddy chase me around to get it away from me.  My favorite thing to steal is daddy's hat...that really gets him going!  I love going for walks and meeting all the neighbourhood kids...they just love to pet me and say I'm very soft.  Swimming in Georgian Bay is another favorite thing to do.  I love chewing on all my different bones and dental chews.  Mommy says I can't have any more stuffed toys because I ruin them in about two minutes flat...too bad cause I really liked them.  I get to go for lots of car rides too, but have to wear my doggy seat belt!  My mommy has found a couple of small dog meetup groups for me to go and meet other little dogs to play with as I'm a little scared of bigger dogs.
