Follow your (dog's) nose (Anne Lill Kvam - Norway)
Dogs have an unbelievable sense of smell and they use this power to navigate all aspects of their lives. In this episode we chat to the legendary Anne Lill Kvam, a Norwegian scentwork expert who has been teaching owners and trainers to understand and enable their dog's scenting powers for decades. We discuss the vital lessons Anne Lill has discovered over the years, the ways in which we can all enrich our dog's lives with scentwork and what Anne Lill is excited about for the future.
