Smell It -- Find It!
Begin with a small dog biscuit with Rover on a Sit-Stay, hold the biscuit up to his nose and tell
him to smell it. Tell him NO if he grabs for it. When the nostrils move, praise him and remove the food. Drop or place the
food a few feet away from him where he can still see it. Now tell him "OKAY, FIND IT!" Give enthusiastic praise. Begin to
place the biscuit farther and farther away and in more obscure places like in other rooms, behind curtains, etc.!
