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.

Hey, This is my Hamster Rex, he died quite a while ago so I can`t remember what the date was when he died. Rex was a real sweet hamster and was very playful. Sometimes Rex would run onto the floor and go underneath the couch and try and get him out. I had to always close the door to the room Rex was in because I have a cat. I really miss Rex. I have one little message for Rex:"ex please rest in peace and play with our other little hamster Buster and please say hi to Misty my cat for me. Thanx! Love:Mranda" Please wish Rex a happy time in heaven. Thanx! From:Miranda
