why do dogs sniff the carpet? me and my husband just moved into a new condo with brand new carpet?
It's a new odor. A dog has a sense of smell much greater than a humans... this makes any smell amplified! I would guess the new carpet smell is probably very strong to the dog.
Sniffing is a dog's version of reading a newspaper. They want to get familiar with all the smells in their environment. Once they are familiar with the smells in your condo, they won't sniff as much. Hope this helps answer your question.
Hopefully your pooch is not looking for a potty place on the brand new carpet!
Must have some good smells. Dogs have very sensitive smell and smell just about everything to check it out. Whoever laid the carpet may have left some smells on it the dog finds interesting.
A dog's sense of smell can be 20,000 times greater than a human's. Your carpet was probably stored in a warehouse prior to installation where it may have picked up the scents of rats, mice or any other varmint. The carpet installers also have their own set or scents to leave behind.
It's all part of your pet getting used to his or her new environment.
Hi your lovely dog is just finding out all about his new home. We use sight and our eyes first with anything new; dogs your their nose and smell first - I guess the easiest way to view it is that what our eyesight is to us, the sense of smell in the dog is the equivalent.

When should I replace a cat condo?I have two cats, and they love their cat condo. It's great since they don't tear up any of my other furniture (for the most part). However, it's getting very worn, somewhat gross, and smells a bit. This is all despite me cleaning it.I've had it...
