Engage your dog's scenting skills by hiding treats around the house, gradually making it more challenging. Vary the items and locations to keep it interesting.
Rev up your dog's nose with treats in closed fists. Say 'Find it!' and reward when they sniff correctly. Increase difficulty with multiple hands.
"Test your dog's tracking skills by placing different animal scents in the yard and observe their reactions."
Hide indoors, let your dog search for you, reward when found. Repeat outdoors with increasing distance. Have fun bonding!
"Teach your dog to find treats under cups using scent and gradually increase difficulty for reliable nose-based choices."
Change dog's meal location regularly to stimulate hunting instincts and engage her senses.
Use essential oils on a toy, play fetch, hide it with scented papers, let the dog follow the trail to find the ball. Gradually reduce papers.
Teach your dog to follow scents like drug-sniffing dogs by gradually introducing scented boxes and rewarding successful finds. Explore tracking clubs for advanced training.
