Why do dogs sniff each other’s butt?

They’ve been sniffing around in the neighborhood and now they need to know who was marking the territory. The dog that pees higher on the tree, the fire hydrant or the pole is the ‘top dog’. My own dog, the one on the right/top of the photo, can pee up to 50 times per hour of walk, from one tree to the next, fromn one bush to the next. That is if there was another peeing on these bushes. That’s like the grafitti: “I was here.”

I used to look after a medium sized dog that only had 1 rear leg, so he could tilt his hip and pee up, so no other dog could be on top of his pee.

That’s how dogs use the power of advertising!
