If you haven’t ever tried nose games, I highly suggest them. They are a fun way to tire out a dog mentally and physically. True to her drivey nature, Shayne has some crazy search drive and loves these types of games. This was the first time Shayne ever searched outside and so I wasn’t sure if she’d be focused at all or not… boy was she focused! I made it easy for her by keeping the finds in/on boxes. The video shows about 1/2 the searches she did that particular training session. I can’t help but smile watching her work because she so enjoys what she’s doing.
Hopefully I’ll get more video as we continue to work… it’s crazy how much this dog loves to work!
Okay… I’m continuing my GUILT-RIDDEN PLEA for votes for Rio’s entry into the facebook contest. He is slightly behind but still in the hunt to potentially be featured on local billboards. So, if you’d like to see huge billboards of Rio (you’d have to know I’d show that off!) please take a minute and vote for Rio.
If you are a member of Facebook, would you please Click Here and “Like” Molyneaux, the sponsor and host for the contest (the contest raised about $1000 for a local shelter!).
Once you’ve Liked Molyneaux, you can “Like” Rio’s Photo (if the link doesn’t take you directly there, it is located under their photos in the “10 Finalists” album). Voting Ends June 29th so it’s not a long campaign.
If you feel so inclined, I would both welcome and be totally appreciative if you would “share” his photo and voting info with your friends!
