They do lots of sniffing. I have a hard time walking Princess in grass because she has to sniff so much. They pick up scents of other dogs, all kinds of new scents. Chase is new to the outside so will do alot of sniffing out the territory around him.

Sniffing and exploring and taking in all the different smells is all part of puppy (and doggy!) fun!!

I read an article in one of the dog magizines. that a dog can smell 500 times more than we can..that if you took the receptors out of their nose and set side by side it would cover the dog entirely. I know Vic and mary read a yard like we read the newspaper..there are voles and mice, snakes and such that travel without us ever knowing they are there..I am sure your dog is doing the same.especially now that the natural world is waking up from the long winter nap.

Besides, they just have to find that PERFECT spot!

I once heard that when walking into an Indian resturant, humans can smell Curry, where as dogs can smell every ingredient/spice that went into that curry. I think this is a good way of illustrating how good those noses are!
