“Frito feet” is very common in most dogs although it may seem more predominant in certain breeds. People may think you are off your rocker if you mention this phenomenon to them but you are not crazy. After all, who goes around smelling their dog’s feet; but if you are close to your pet, rubbing its belly, playing with its paws, kissing and loving it all over, it is not hard to get a hint of that Frito aroma. Feet smelling like corn chips is normal. You may notice it more right after your pet has been sleeping.
