Stinging Nettles and Dogs

I noticed this with my corgi and now Willow also shows this. I've seem them go up to a stinging nettle and stick their nose right on it to sniff and show no reaction whatsoever. If I did that my nose would be burning from the nettle sting! Are they immune?

I don't know, but I DO know that goats eat poison ivy with impunity. So plants that cause a problem with one species don't necessarily bother another species.

I know my dogs can get I poison ivy along the fence line and suffer nothing but if I touch them I break out in a blistery rash! Not fair!
