I have been putting together a K9 Nose Work Kit for myself. I don’t really like the kits they sell on the nose work website, so I figure I’d build my own. On the ones on the site they have only one tin. And I don’t like the idea of switching the different scents around in just one tin. I want a tin for each odor. So I have a big green tin for the Anise, and the little tin is a Burt’s Bees lip balm tin that I put the Birch in. I have another tin with Burt’s Bees hand salve that I still have hand salve in… lol, but I’m using it up and plan on putting the Clove in that one.
I cut the foam myself (we had some left over from some dog beds we made) but I didn’t do it very straight. LOL so I might redo that. And I did order some birch, clove and anise from the K9NW site, so I’m going to put those viles in the box too. The box I got from Sportsman’s Warehouse, it’s just a water proof camping box. When I tried to google boxes that were dog smell proof, all I got were results for people who wanted to know where to get a box for their pot that the police dogs couldn’t sniff through. LOL. I think that’s pretty much impossible!
So I’m building my kit. I think I’m going to use more treats for the dogs again so they will keep their hunt drive up. Hopefully I won’t get any adult acne while using the oils, I swear some things cause me to break out and I don’t like that! The Nose Work has been tons of fun and I’m having a great time putting all the equipment together.
