Title: Shed Antler Training?
Post by: GotVarmints on October 18, 2010, 10:14:24 PM
My Lab retriever is five years old and knows how to find things by scent, but I can't get him to actively look for sheds...

If I give him the command and a few steps in the right direction he can do it, but that means I have to see it first, taking the point of having a shed dog away (Not that I don't still love him).

So any pointers on getting my dog to proactively use his nose?

I read an article somewhere not too long about about shed-training dogs.  I think it was in Full Cry.  I'll have to look back through my old issues and see if I can find it for you.  O0  It was pretty good.
