Dogs and Butt Scratches – Boys vs. Girls!

August 14, 2011 28 comments

Okay. So this may be another one of my silly dog-pondering questions, but I’m going to ask it anyways. Do male dogs prefer butt scratches more than female dogs?

The reason I ask this is because my dog Jasper absolutely LOVES to have his butt scratched – all of the time. Daisy, on the other had, could take it or leave it, as long as she gets her belly rub she is a happy girl. I have also noticed this interesting delineation between boy and girl dog clients. The boys always seem to be the ones most interested in getting a butt scratch. Dylan, a client I adore, actually does a dance when you scratch his butt. One leg up, then the other, back to the first leg and on and on it goes. You may even get a growl of pleasure out of him if you’re really good.

So what do you think? Do boy dogs like butt scratches more than girl dogs? And, if so, what’s up with that anyways?
