She does scent hurdles, like Flyball but with scent discrimination and dumbbells instead of the balls.

I am trying to think but the smallest we have here is an Italian greyhound. We offer NW at my work, I've not taken advantage of it but a few times and now that I'm moving and losing my discount I think I would like it with Shamoo. lol

I always wondered what scent hurdle was. I've never heard of that one.

Does the IG do nosework? I'm not sure if we'll do much more than the intro to nosework class. If they do a teamwork class at a time I can go to, I might try that one instead.

I took a couple nosework classes for funsies with Maisy a couple of years ago, and there were toy breeds who did just fine. In fact, on their web page their demo video had a wee pom in it.

Sometimes they would hide the scent up on a table or shelf or something, but I don't know why accommodations for size couldn't be made in a class setting.

Funny that you mention it now, we just did a 2 day scent detection seminar here last weekend. So much fun. We had a wide range of dogs both days from chi's, hounds, BC's, Jrts, mixes, big and small all had fun and success. They started out with food or toys in the open bins progressing to closed bins with just the scent in it for the dogs that worked both days. Petie had a great time.

Mia had a complete blast. The boxes were almost all taller than her so she ended up having to crane in on her back legs and eventually started hopping into the boxes and knocking them over. She picked it up fast and had a couple moments where you could see her catch a scent and make a decision. She did really really well and ended up making the whole class laugh with her antics. It is hard not to smile when you see such a small and determined little dog, lol.

I'm honestly shocked she didn't try shaping with the boxes at first.
