We are constantly playing scent games and training with scent. When we have a low blood sugar issue with Stella (a BG level under 70) we swab her mouth with cotton a freeze it to use at a later date. Here, we are working with Major to “find it”. We have just taken a sample and left it out in the house for him to find. Sometimes we keep it in a pocket, or Stella carries it, or we can use it in specific scenarios, like with Stella in her bed with the lights off. We even have a “fetch stick” that we can fill with scent and play fetch with.
This is the scent stick, just a simple piece of PVC pipe with some holes drilled in it and capped at both ends. You can hide it in the yard, play fetch with it, hide it in the house, lot’s of things you can do with this.
How do you train using scent with your DAD?
