They are able to get information about the other dog and where it's been Etc. by doing so. Canines have scent glands located in the rear. Plus their sense of smell being so much better than humans maybe when bum smells are enhanced they smell like ice cream or roses or something haha.

Dogs sniff butts to greet each other, get familiar with each others scent, once that's done they wag their tails.

To determine gender, whether the dog is in heat, where the dog has been, etc.. Some take it personally.

John is absolutely correct. Dogs learn everything. they need to know from smelling another dog's butt, even what he has eaten.The dog's nose is his clue to everything. going on around him.

Because they Can't Shake Hands ;) No seriously, Dogs sniff butts to greet each other, much as humans do by shaking hands. Dogs have anal glands just inside their rectums, which produce a strong odor. Dogs can find out all sorts of information just by getting a whiff back there. They can find out the sex of the other dog, whether the dog is in heat, what the dog ate lately and whether the encounter is likely to be a friendly one. Because the smell is unique to each dog, butt sniffing is the best way dogs have to identify each other.

Recognition, curiosity, a dog learns a lot about the other dog from sniffing the butt.

Here's some new information (at least for me). According to a new video from the American Chemical Society (above), it's all about one canine literally sniffing out important information about the other--its gender, emotional state, diet, and more.How can the sniffer make sense of the glandular secretions released by the sniffee's anal sac--without the poopy smell getting in the way?Dogs have a second olfactory system that's known as the Jacobson's organ. Its nerves direct the chemical information it detects directly to the brain so there's no interference from other odors.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/28/why-do-dogs-sniff-each-others-butts-video_n_5627304.html
