|I have a dog that can be an intrusive sniffer with people. It can be really annoying.
If I'm concerned that she is going to be rude, then I will keep her on a leash. If we have friends over, then she is sent to her bed or drags a leash until I am confident that she can be polite. I make sure to reward calm, appropriate behaviour and I do my best to not give her the opportunity to sniff like that.
It wouldn't even occur to me to ask someone if they have a medical issue because my dog is sniffing rudely...I know that I would be really offended if someone were to ask me this (as far as I'm concerned, there really is no tactful or polite way to bring this up).
