a great idea but...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fun Nosework for Dogs, 2nd Ed. (Paperback)
I read this book and found it very interesting in theory, but having because neither of my dogs (basenji's) are big on retrieving very few of the games in the book worked because the games build on the idea of retrieving. I donated the book to the library

That doesn't make the book bad. Some dogs aren't driven to do scent training.

Very useful comment.
Dogs that don't retrieve can be taught to do so if they like going after toys (hint: use a leash and bring the dog back to you, and work on give/take toy commands), but you may need a different book.
