There's some really specific things I want to try and teach Kaia, but am not sure how to go about doing it. She's a sight hound, but she's more nose oriented than Strider and I think I might be able to work with her to strengthen that drive. Anyway, here's what I want to do. Teach her to look for a specific scent (something like truffles, or drugs). The thing is stationary and doesn't leave a track. So, she'd be working like a truffle hound or a drug/bomb detection dog where they know the scent they are searching for, but you have to take them to a likely area and direct them in a search pattern. Thing is, I have no idea how you go about training something like that. Does anybody have ideas? Or websites with good articles? Or know of any really good books on the subject? We can't afford a class right now, and I don't think anybody in the area teaches something like this anyway.
