I can never walk far enough or fast enough to tire a dog. But if there’s a lot to smell? Ahhh, that’s another matter.
I’ve learned that when Honey comes home tired from a walk, it’s entirely due to the work she’s put into catching all the scents on the ground and in the air. And with dozens of dogs in our neighborhood, that’s a lot of p-mail to review.
When our local SPCA announced they were going to offer K9 Nose Work classes, I signed Honey up. Classes start next week and there’s room for two more dogs to participate.
Here’s a quick look at what K9 Nose Work looks like, thanks to The Bark magazine:
I can’t wait to learn more and see how Honey enjoys it!
In other news–I completed the NaBloPoMo Challenge and posted everyday in November! Hallelujah! Thanks to everyone who was so encouraging and who left comments. It’s great to know so many interesting animal lovers are out there reading and to see the other fun blogs.
It’s time to sign up in December if you want to to challenge yourself.
