    @dieMuttivonBifi hmm.. how old is Bifi?

    Blue's going to be two in December, and Wellie is 13 months. Wellie is teenager so maybe that's it. But at almost two, is Blue still considered a teenager? lol..

    @Blueberrys Mom Bifi is one year and 5 months old. I read that dogs are puppies from birth to 6-8 months old, teenagers till 3 then adult from 3 years old and onwards. So if those are correct, our boys are all teenagers! Guess they have a valid excuse to be naughty . Do your boys mind if they were the ones being sniffed? Bifi, in two different occasions, didn't let the dogs sniff his behind. And again i don't know if i should've corrected that? Maybe i should've?

    You know it's funny… Bella wasn't a BIG sniffer, but boy Winston was and so is Walter. I think maybe it's a MALE bulldog thing… Lol

    Holly does the same thing, shes a hardcore sniffer. As mentioned earlier some dogs dont like the up close n personal sniffing and react harshly. Part of the reason we have stopped going to parks. I feel bad because Holly is a social butterfly thats super friendly...when shes not sniffing the other person/dog to death. Holly is 2 1/2 yrs old.

    Leo is the happiest go lucky dog. This gets him into trouble as he means no harm to any dog, but he loves to sniff. He gets his head right into other dogs privates and sniffs and sniffs, and licks. It's a little embarrassing, as he really won't stop until the other dogs have had enough and runs or snaps at him, to stop. He recently started to hump other dogs at the dog park too. And lifting his leg to pee. I didn't think he even knew how to lift his leg. Oh man, I've got my hands full with him at the park now.

    Ruckus loves a good sniff, and a lick.....or fifty. I have tried to tell him no and make sure he doesn't get up under other dogs, but he does it to almost all new dogs. Sometimes he only does it for a second, but other times he seems like he is enjoying himself so much, I'm not sure what to make of it. Some other dogs don't seem to mind, a few get angry, and some, well some lift their leg for more. The worst part is Ruckus doesn't realize when other dogs are angry about it. Dogs growling at him isn't really a deterrent. I have to watch him at the park and redirect him if he's being too annoying. He doesn't do it as much with dogs he has met several times. Ruckus isn't neutered either. I'm not sure if that is the cause, but I don't think so. I met someone else at the park who has a different breed and their dog is neutered and he still loves to get up under all the other dogs. Ruckus is 1.5 years old, maybe it's a puppy/teenager thing like people are saying? Let me know if they don't do it as much after the neutering, I'd be interested to hear!

    Omg Barkley does this too!! Every time we go to the dog park he has to sniff/lick every dog he meets for soooo long. It gets him in trouble too since some dogs don't like it. I always figured it might be because of their smushed in faces...that maybe they can't get that good of a sniff as other dogs so it takes them longer?! Haha. Who knows!!
