YOUR DOG’S NOSE = MOST UNDER UTILIZED TRAINING TOOL
Work with the power of your dog’s nose! Improve training success by integrating these two proven scents into your routine. Simply wet a cotton ball, place in one of the tins, add a drop of oil, have your dog sniff and voila: you’ve just increased their ability to focus with a clear mind and retain what they are learning.
Rosemary is the go-to scent when it comes to memory retention. Use this oil when working on a more advanced skill or with a behavior your dog or puppy is struggling to ‘get’. The stimulating effect helps increase the ability to focus and retain what they are learning. Over the course of several uses, you will find your dog responds to the scent with an ‘okay, it’s time to train’ attitude.
Peppermint is known as an invigorating scent. It helps to clear the mind and sharpens one’s ability to focus on the immediate. This is a great oil to use when you need your dog’s full attention and when you will be working in a distracting area. We like to use this scent when teaching the ‘like me’ concept, as it requires the puppy’s focus to be quite strong.
