Yes butt sniffing is necessary
Alot of humans are grossed out by Dogs sniffing each others bums and genitals. But this behaviour is totally necessary for a Dog. True it may get you a Police Caution in the street but for a Dog this is a polite way to meet. So what do Dogs learn by doing this. Well they learn; what sex the other Dog is, when they last ate, what their temperement is like... they learn all they need to know about another Dog. When Dogs meet face to face (and those of you who know me will groan as it's my mantra 😉 when a Dog greets another Dog face to face it is like two boxers squaring up in the ring). It means one thing. Fight. It's rude for a Dog to do this. Polite for humans. Rude for Dogs. So next time your Dog dives for another Dogs bottom let it happen it's not crude it's just Dogs life 🐶
