Fun in class

Sometimes we use exercises that include a high element of fun and games. Here a titbit has been hidden under a one of a group of flower pots. The dog simply needs to find the titbit by using their sense of smell ... and eat it! This activity is sometimes used in class just as fun for all. Sometimes it is used as a reward for another command: for example the dog may be asked to Sit or do Down, or heel through the flowerpots, and then they can do their Find. Dogs love using their noses, and people love watching just how clever they are at scenting something out.


... and capturing this dog just after he has found the titbit and overturned the pot to eat it
