Given his age you will need to watch him so that he is not searching for the prefect potty place. They are pretty much little sucking monsters, always looking for little bits of food and things to put in their mouth, edible or not lol. This behavior is completely normal for him.


Go!! Go!!! Yes,- we are goning- now...

They also sniff to find out where they are. Bonita sniffs all the time, when we moved to another town and would come to our old house she would be able to know about 1/2 mile that we were almost to our old house. Boy, would she go crazy, she also does it when we go to our other house. so it is normal for him to sniff. It's also so cute when they sniff.

I call my two girls my "little dragons" cuz when they are really excited about something they smell or especially when they are sniffing under doors, they snort and huff and puff!!!

Whenever we drove near the waste treatment plant (when we lived in Atlanta) Maxxy would pop up and sniff like mad (even if he had been asleep in the car).

pet me, not- Maxx!

Maxxy likes to sniff my butt all the time. I am more polite and sniff his face. I'm also a great snorter.

It's a Schnauzer- thing....

Place toys in the house and tell him to find them...and my boys do find them very quik.. snoopy snoopy May be you can make a fun game out of the your dogs love for sniffing, I do and I think it is never wrong if you dog knows how to find the Keys big laugh big laugh
