Good morning. I was wondering how many dog owners notice that their dogs are taking over all the items in the house by wiping their nose on it? I barely have time to wipe it clean and we're talking another nose swipe. Do they think its a checkout lane? Trying to make me crazy? What exactly is this behavior called if a wolf in the wild did it? Is that how they wipe their nose? Is it a stamp of approval? WTH?
Perhaps needs more attention! Pls. check this out : [hillspet.com]
I never noticed my dog swiping his nose on anything. It's not that he doesn't, it's just that I never noticed it. I keep a reasonably clean house, but I'm not a germaphobe, and and hardly ever get sick. Dogs process their world through smells, much as we humans might read a newspaper or go online to see who's been there. If my dog wants to swipe his nose, I say let him! He lives here, too.
