Monday night Nose Work Christmas Fun

Monday night there is no class for Nose Work. Instead, you could sign up for a 3 hr. Christmas Nose Work Fun Night. The whole place is being decorated for Christmas and the rooms are going to be different scents. The dogs will be in teams and work the rooms. There is going to be music, food and lots of fun for everyone!

That sounds like a lot of fun. Will there be some Christmas scents for them to hunt? Sounds like fun for the doggie parents too! Can't wait to hear more details!

We had a great time tonight. There were 4 teams of 5 dogs each. There were 4 different stations. Each had a Christmas theme and the dogs went one at a time to search for the scents.
The object of the searches was to find as many scents in each theme and get a clue that has something to do with facts about Christmas Trees. At the end of the game, they would ask questions and you would look over your clues and see if you knew the answer.
The first theme Jack did was Christmas containers. There were over 30 different sized containers and 5 of them had scents. He had 2 minutes to search and he did great. He got 3 out of 5, so we got 3 clues.
The second theme Jack did was called Frozen. It was in the pool room. There were 10 different buckets filled with water, some solid and some plain water. The frozen ones had the scent. Jack got 2 out of 2! It was a new concept, he had never tried that before and the instructor was very pleased. So, we got 2 more clues.
The 3rd room was the ornament room. There were piles of ornaments on the floor, decorated chairs, plants and a motion activated santa. Jack found 4 out of 6 in 2 minutes. So, 4 more clues.
The last theme was an outdoor Christmas scene spread out over a large area. It had twists and turns, obstacles, boxes, wagons, signs, benches. Jack got 3 out of 5, so 3 more clues.
After all the dogs had their turns, they read off the clues for each themed section and you got to guess what they had to do with Christmas Trees.
We had so much fun!! There was lots of food and music.

Oh, I think Jack had the most fun....he got a reward each time he alerted the scent!! I did have fun talking with all the moms and dads and seeing so many wonderful breeds of dogs.
Jack was the smallest one there, but he can keep up with the big guys. That's why his instructors love him so much.
He was so tired last night, he snored all night!!

That sounds like so much fun! That was very well planned. Did you guess any of the facts about Christmas trees? I'm not so sure that Jack had more fun than his Mama. I think it was a tie.

I knew 3 of the facts from the clues. The more clues you had, the easier to figure it out.
