I Brought You A Gift | Belgian Malinois | New York
Watching a dog during an obedience trial is like watching a dog put on a clinic of all the things a dog can do.
One of the most interesting things to watch the dogs do is on display in this photo of a Belgian Malinois.
For this objective a set of identical objects are laid in the grass. The dogs human keeps one and rubs there hands over it to put their scent on the object. Then the object is placed in the grass amongst the other objects.
It is the job of the Belgian Malinois to find the object that the human has touched,
The Belgian Malinois sniffs the pile of objects. Finds the correct object. Retrieves the object.
Then the Belgian Malinois brings the object back to their human. And to complete the exercise sits on cue next to their human.
