sniffing

Wondering if anyone else has a pup that has a nose out of control. Gabby is constantly going around with her nose to the floor, sniffing, etc. I swear she has hound dog in her. It really gets aggravating. She acts like she is starving. She is obsessed with food. I make her sit before she can have her food, but when I give her the sign, she dives in like she hasnt ate in days. I dont know if that really has anything to do with the constant sniffing. I put her in her kennel sometimes, just because I am tired of the constant sniffing. She is now 6 months old.

Brody constantly sniffs the ground. Sometimes I call him my little truffle sniffing pig because he occasionally makes snorting noises while sniffing. When I take him outside in the snow to go to the washroom he sticks his face right into the snow so he can sniff. He's a year.

Gabby is a very cute girl! Mig doesn't sniff a whole lot, but he does reverse sneeze almost every day.

Julie is a sniffer too..seems at times she's a mini bloodhound gathering clues and news.
When she was a puppy she also had to pick up every leaf or twig that she saw..now she is a little more selective though can't resist a kleenex or at the beach a sand crab or kelp.
Wish I knew what information she was gathering with all the sniffing.

Ha Carol, that is funny. Yea, gabby cant resist a paper towel. It just gets annoying to see her with her nose in the carpet continually. It is like she just cant sit down and rest a minute, cause she has to sniff.

When Isabella starts sniffing, it's usually a good indicator she needs to visit the green bathroom

Gabby sniffs constant. It is not a very good indicator of a need. She is house trained though, and goes on her own.

Ha ha...that was my problem with Brody when he was little. Since he was ALWAYS sniffing the floor I couldn't use that as a potty predictor. He still feels the need to pick up every stick, leaf, piece of paper...and holy grail of all finds is a paper coffee cup.

Mu puppy sniffs constantly on walks, which make them a bit tedious for me! I'm hoping she'll grow out of it....
