How to tell your dog apart from other dogs?
Dogs have identifying marks that are unique to each individual. These marks can be used to tell your dog apart from other dogs.

If you’re a dog owner, you know that all dogs look pretty much the same to us humans. But to your dog, every other dog is as unique as we are to each other. So how do they tell each other apart?
It all starts with the nose. Dogs have nearly 200 million scent receptors, compared to our measly 5 million. This means they can smell things we can’t even imagine. And when they meet another dog, they take a big sniff of that pooch’s butt. That’s because the anal glands release a unique scent that tells dogs everything they need to know about that individual – what they eat, where they live, who their family is.
Dogs also communicate through body language. They use their tails, ears, and eyes to convey everything from happiness and excitement to fear and aggression. By reading these cues, dogs can quickly get a sense of whether another dog is friend or foe.
So next time you’re at the dog park, take a moment to watch the dogs interact. You might be surprised at just how much communication is going on right under your nose!
