Scents and Oils

whats that scent?

If you feel that your dog is having a hard time finding his way around, you can try putting a scent on places where you want your dog to go. For instince, you probably want your dog to wait at the door to go to the bathroom? Well, you can put a scented towel on the door, so your dog knows to wait at the door to go potty. I haven't played too much with scents with Youwho because he gets around pretty well, but this could be a life saver for other dogs who are having a hard time finding their way around. You can use scents like vanilla, lavendar or other natural fragrances that are commonly used in cooking.

Also, you can try scented toys with your dog! Since sometimes these dogs have a hard time finding toys, you can put peanut butter in a kong, or put some biscuits in other types of toys, so your dog can find his toys easily plus get a snack!
