All about Cooper
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 Cooper.
The standard of the Eurasier will tell you that my breed doesn't have a strong hunting instinct! So far, so good, but I LOVE to hunt squirrels, and I never give up hope that maybe one day I'll get one of these little squicky creatures who seem to make fun of me!
Something else I love to do is swimming! I share my life with 2 Labradors and it might be their legacy to me that I really developped into a strong swimmer.
My most embarrassing moment as far in my young life : I got sprayed by a skunk....I thought it was a cat and chased it....well I got the bill for that one, and I had to get washed , which I hate!
Other than that I think life is wonderful, and I know my family loves me as much as I love them, we are a team!
