This is the best time for a new batch of Scented Q’s prepared with fresh new Essential Oils.
Probably you know to look for Steam Distilled Oils not Solvent Extracted. Organic whenever possible. Stored in Amber glass and kept at room or cooler refrigerator temperature.
Did you know that the Shelf Life of your Essential Oils is Approx 2 years from the harvesting of the oil? So if your oil is older than 18 months to 2 years it is probably due for a replacement. Lot’s of handlers are using more oil now to scent their Q’s. That maybe because they are using older oil that just does not have that “Top Note” anymore. Place TWO drops of oil on a cotton pad and let it sit in a baby food size jar. Take the lid off after a couple of hours. When you unscrew the top you should get a good whiff of clean smelling essential oil.
If you compete your dog is going to be sourcing the Freshest Essential Target Odor Oil on freshly made all Cotton/Paper Q’s in a brand new hide container.
You probably spend quite a bit on Classes, Training, Competing and Traveling.
The best and least expensive investment you can make is in Fresh Oil and New Clean Hide Containers.
These new Essential Oil Kits have been added now to our extensive array of choices in Nosework Supplies.
K9 NWSource tripled in volume and we made many new friends in the world of “Nosework”.
I was forced to close for part of the summer when an unexpected illness struck in April and then again in July. It was a herculean feat but with the help of family and friends K9 NWSource re-opened in Nov of 2015. With many new products being added each week. A “T” Shirt campaign on www.teespring.com showcased our original design “May the SOURCE be with you”. My daughter Dani came to work Part Time at K9 NWSource and we would not be able to continue without her.
My adult Belgian Trevurens Rory and Skye both pulled me thru NW3’s. The youngest Terv Trace got his NW2 the same month he had just turned 1 year old.
I sat on the sidelines for many months recuperating from an extended illness. Great support from my extended “Nosework” family was very appreciated and a great help to get me back to the sport I love.
