~Trying out Nosework

As summer approaches, it has become time to find a new activity to keep Push’s brain engaged. Due to an ongoing problem with a knee injury  (mine) we are not able to do agility this summer so we are starting a class in scent work. When we are outside, his nose is always to the ground following the scent of some kritter or another. We have deer, raccoons, skunks, coyotes, quail, and have even spotted a juvenile cougar passing through the property.

Luckily he has left the skunks alone unlike Zula who had to learn the hard way that skunks are not black and white cats. Push did find some black bear scat in the oak grove but it was not fresh. Luckily he is not a Weim that has developed the trait of rolling in animal “exhaust”, again unlike Zula who finds rotting deer poo almost to hard to resist.

I also want to let you know that after following your blog, and reading about Dusty and the duralactin, I ordered some for Trixie. Trixie is my 12 year old pit mix that has arthritis in her shoulder. The duralactin seems to have helped her pain as she does not limp as badly as she did before starting it and she is more active. So, thank you for the information.

We are so happy to hear that you discovered the Duralactin (anti-inflammatory) for Trixie. Also that you are engaged with the Nosework, this discipline seems like a realistic activity for both of you.
