OK, now our nosework is starting to get a little more interesting!
Put two identical containers (with holes in the lid) on the floor, and bring in the dog. One container has the scented tin inside. Dog needs to "search" for the scented container. Reward, reward, reward, reward when then get it right! Reward again.
Yesterday, Oreo's lightbulb came on, and I think he's really got it now! Yea Oreo!
Chewy is doing well too.
Next step will be to have 4 identical containers ~ 3 dummies and 1 scented.
We've had lots of people/trucks at our house lately for the garage construction.
When the dogs start getting really amped up/barking about men & trucks, I've been bringing them to the basement to do nosework. Completely distracts them! It's awesome. But, I think we'll all be happy when the construction is over!
