Since then, I've talked with vets who have told me that a dog must ingest a large quantity for an essential oil to cause seizures. So, we can continue to do nosework! We jump for joy because we love it so much.
I wanted to share a recent round of nosework that we did. The short video has 2 clips. In the first clip, I hid a tiny odor source in a crevice within huge pile of firewood. Shyla worked it beautifully. She seems to be figuring out wind direction and how to search most efficiently by starting downwind and working her way upwind.
In the second clip, I put a magnetic tin with a little bit of clove oil high up on the yellow sign in the video view. Shyla did a fabulous job of finding it. Hides that are way over a dog's head are the hardest.
Without further ado, enjoy the video either here or at Youtube.
