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, Buckwheat, am the best pal that anyone could ask for. I am loyal, friendly, and downright adorable! My favorite spot is under the computer desk, warming my Papa's feet. My favorite time of day is puppy dinner time and I will do anything to hang on to my favorite toy. I have a new little sister, Pfeifen, that sometimes drives me crazy, but we get along pretty well most of the time (when she's not chewing on my tail!). I love going in the truck and I am always excited to go for walks in the park. My Papa is my best friend, and Mom is always there when I need a hug, Pfeifen is not so bad either.
