Why does my dog like to roll in stinky stuff?

Fallen leaves, cow plops, roadkill – all sorts of repulsive piles seem like paradise to your pooch, who has a nasty habit of rolling in fifth the instant he or she gets outside (usually right after a bath). But remember, a dog’s nose is a hundred times more sensitive than a human’s. What smells sweet to us – such as dog shampoo – might seem just plain awful to your dog, so he or she will roll in something smelly to overpower the shampoo odor. Some experts believe dogs instinctively roll in poop or dead critters to cover their scent or share these foul finds with pack members. In this case, unfortunately, you’re part of your dog’s pack!
