    • Birch is one of the target scents they use in sport Nose Work. Anise and Clove are the others. The sport was developed as a way for dogs to learn detection skills for fun, using essential oils instead of drugs, explosives, cadavers… the things that professional detection dogs learn to seek.

      Lately there have been warnings about the risk of poisoning from the essential oils. Just want to state for the record that I keep the vial of scented Q-tips in a glass jar in the garage that the dogs can’t get to. Neither of them seems interested in eating the containers of birch either.

  1. You guys certainly are good with your noses. Hmm I think I will do some nosework too. It looks like a lot of fun. Have a great day.

  2. I have been thinking about doing some nose work with Ava and Veruca. I’ll check out that link that you posted. Thanks!

  3. Oh the wonderful GSD nose, this is just so cool watching them in action! Sounds like s good idea for us to do with our guy Booth, give him something fun to do 🙂
