Good that it was a fun and educational experience! And now that you know how the setups can look, you can train differently :)

I really enjoy doing nosework in stores that allow dogs (ex. hardware store, pet store), making sure we are not in the way of shoppers and such.

I also like playing in city parks (again, not in the way of kids or other people) and hide the odors all over the playground.

It really gets us working in different areas and on a much wider scope.

I got a wild hair and entered 3/4 dogs in a bunch of nosework things this upcoming weekend and later in the month. 馃槀

I also realized fable has seen nosework twice so this should be interesting. Right now she thinks the game is smash all boxes and yell.

The girls and I have been concentrating on nosework lately. We are doing classes online with FDSA, and have been taking full advantage of the Teaching Assistants in the student Facebook groups. Today, we did some searches with non-box containers. It was about a million degrees (okay, so the temperature was only 91 F, with 62% humidity, for a heat index of only 103 F), with winds up to 15 MPH, that kept shifting around on us. Both of them did really well, I think.

One of Lily's searches.

And one of Leo's.

I'm hoping to get into some trials next year. Real Life has been getting in the way of dog life lately.

Well, for whatever reason, I can't get them to embed in the post, but just show the links.
