I cannot give dogs long cook times in my weekly classes but I can for the classes I hold once/month because I essentially have possession of the property for the whole weekend so some hides remain from 7am on Saturday until 6pm on Sunday and depending on the hide and level of class students may/may not work it. For those of you who teach at a location with others you could join efforts to give everyone the opportunity to work a hide that’s been cooking for a long time.

I will caution against leaving hides in public areas for a long amount of time. Amy and I have discussed getting flags made to indicate that K9NW odors are in the area so if someone from the public walks into the area they’re not pulling their NW dog off of odor and degrading their own training. But we have never gotten to that point of having products made. 🙂
