Sniff It – Week Three

This week our assignments involve making things more difficult for dogs and encouraging them to use their nose. We used two exercises to do this.

The first exercise involved hiding containers in boxes. One container was filled with food, the other was empty. The dog’s job is to find the food container, my job is to make him think he’s the most brilliant dog in the world.

In the beginning, Bear is rather convinced that ALL containers must be filled with food, however, he quickly learned that there were many containers but only one food find.

The second exercise involved Bear identifying one container out of three that contained food.

The container exercise seemed like more of a nose workout. I don’t know why? Maybe because the boxes trap scent better? Regardless, Bear is quickly getting the hang of things and I can’t wait for next week’s assignment.
