Trailing with your dog,

that is wonderful and healthy. 

You will hear, see and smell everything around you,

Together you're one in nature with your dog.











Trailing and searching is for your dog a natural behaviour, every

dog can trail. The nose of a dog can smell more compare to human.

Dogs can be used in different areas like, detection, trailing and rescuing. In the brain of the dog is a centre that can be used to save the smell.


The dog even has an extra sense. That extra sense is called the organ of Jacobson and you will find it just before the incisors.

To taste the smell the dog touches it with the edge of his tongue

and brings his tongue behind his teeth. In a damp area every dog

can smell better.


When you are playing with your dog you can start with searching games, this will stimulate the smell organ. When Natsumi smell a trail and is going to run her primal instinct come above and she is not noticing me anymore and also her surrounding and other traffic.

It is good to take into consideration.
