Essential Oils for Dogs

How Dogs “See” With Their Noses

Lesson 11 Chapter 3

Any involved dog person will already know this, but still I find it interesting and so I'm sharing. 

Those who participate in doing nosework in an organized training fashion, use essential oils as part of the training. I know this kind of "brainwork" for dogs is a great way to help them build confidence and also to release pent up energy. 

Some dogs, like my new Carolina Dog puppy Ezra, don't get tired from all the exercise as they're very high energy, agile dogs. Engaging in play, hide and seek, etc., that gets him tired. I've not done the nose work YET but definitely want to. This article touches on that a little bit also.
