Sheltie Nation

Workin’ Girl!

These are photos of my Sheltie Evie doing an outdoor area search.
She participates in CSI (Canine Sniffer Instinct) – K9 Nose work.
The target odor is hidden in the tree above her (the orange clip) and a second target buried in the snow.
Her “Alert” to the find is to sit.
Shelties love to use their “nose” to find anything that results in cookie rewards & a play session of tug.
What a SMART girl you have there, Ginny!
