Jet is doing more K9 Nose Work! We got to practice in a brand new place today. Willow Creek Dog Training center. Jet did so awesome. He definitely is sniffing for the Anise, not just treats.
I changed to the odor pretty recently, we’ve only done it a couple of times at home. And I don’t know if I posted about this before, so forgive me if I repeat myself, but I’ve put a nose touch and a sit as indicator behaviors to the find. I did that at home with the odor in the tin. He already knows a nose touch, so it was easy to have him touch the tin and then sit. Then I did a really easy find for him with the tin. And he’d find it, and I’d give him a good woo hoo and a jackpot so he understood that he’s searching for the odor now, not the treats. And he got it in like two finds! He’s such an amazing dog.
So moving to a new place is another challenge. And this was a really big room for him too. Maybe I’ll buy myself some scott kay jewelry as a celebration because he’s doing so well!
Here are some other vidoes of him if you want to see them too:
