This sounds like it may be a fun activity to try with basenjis, it is Nosework.

I would love to attend a seminar or workshop on how to get started with this. I think my dogs would have fun with it.

That definitively would good fun for a B. They're pretty good smelling things out. They love to track I know that and they can smell a cookie crumb from across the street.

Otis never seizes to amaze me with the things he eats and it's not just one it's the whole package of course. "I never get any bacon so I'm going to eat the whole package and make up for it". 😃

Sounds neat Lisa, let us know how it goes if you try!
