    Shed hunting is something that I am currently wanting to train my lab and vizsla to do. I am an avid bowhunter so I see it as more exercise for the dogs. Plus it gives them something to think about other than tennis balls and socks.

    We don't really 'train' for shed hunting but we do play with them which I guess could be considered training. He'll be two in March so this will be his second year hunting for them. Last year he was too young and didn't really know what was going on as we were just walking through the woods. I was going to get out about a month ago to find some early drops but we got hammered with snow. We'll see how his 'training' is in the next month or so. He loves to chew the hell out of some 'bad' ones I have. Got a guy to donate a box full to me last summer, very appreciative!!
