Beagles were bred as hunting pups, and were equipped with a fantastic sense of smell thanks to hundreds of years of selective breeding. Knowing this fact, this Dad has opted to take advantage of his pup’s innate hunting skills and put them to the test!
After hiding treats all over the house, Oliver is given the comment to go hunting. You can see that this pup is getting very good at this game – there is a sense of confidence as he looks around the place, giving the air a quick sniff here and there. Certainly, this pup is enjoying the hunt!
After coming across the first treat hiding on the bannister of the stairs, Oliver gives a single, loud bark. This is his cue that he’s found the treat. And his reward, obviously, is being able to eat it! As Dad normally hides only 4 treats, this means that Oliver still has 3 more to go. Good luck, and godspeed!
