So I found this really cool scent discrimination game I want to teach Conan. Basically you put different mild scents on objects, say your keys and your phone. Keys smell like lemon, phone smells like grape. Once you teach the dog to discriminate between the two, he can always find them! And it can come in handy! So next time I lose my keys, I can say, "Conan, find my keys! Where are they keys?" And he'll know that "keys" smell like lemon, and he can track them down and find them by their scent! It's a fun game for a rainy day (you can just hide random objects) because it really gets their brains working. I can't wait to try this! Has anyone else?
