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!

    Victoria and I love our nose work classes! Shelties are so very good at this sport. It’s a great chance to really build a bond with your dog and learn how to communicate on a better level. Ginny looks adorable in her working vest!
