Crybbe Enjoys Scent Work

This is Crybbe, head of our canine household.
One of the activities he enjoys most of all is scent work. He has been on lots of scentwork courses and last weekend he went on another one at a Yorkshire museum of agriculture through the ages.

                        There are lots of different huts for different historical periods.

                                             The searches were done inside the huts.

Crybbe had to search for tiny little morsels of cheese that are hidden somewhere in the hut.

                                                         Checking under the table.

                                                  Checking the top part of the table too.

                                                And having a good sniff by the window.

It is harder if you are a very little dog but Crybbe can let Judith know if he has found cheese but can't reach it. When he had finished his searches of the hut, Crybbe went outside to search in the yard.

There were rows of old tractors in the shed...and more places to search for hidden cheese!

                                              Crybbe thinks there might be something here!

                                                                  Or on the wheel..

This was one of the best scent work places Crybbe had ever been to. I hope when I am a bit older I will be able to start scent work training as it looks great fun...and cheese is always a bonus BOL

  6. Sounds like a good day out for Crybbe. Now if dogs were allowed in all museums, where would you choose to go, Moth? Hmm... maybe Wensleydale Creamery?

    Lots of love from Finley xx

  13. I love this!! I've been looking for something like this for our blind lab, and can't find anything as cool as this!! What fun - And you're right cheese is always a bonus!!

    1. I thought it might be a good diversion and fun for your lab. With the scent work training the cheese titbits are hidden sometimes in places that the dog may need human assistance to reach although the dog has to find the cheese and look for help. But for a fun game which is challenging but enjoyable you can hide treats of any kind in a trail, inside a cardboard box or bucket making sure your dog can seek them out on his own and safely :-)
