Then mine is 100% well adjusted because he can’t stop sniffing when he’s outside.  I literally take him on sniff walks when we are outside.  He has one hiking area he loves due to large quantities of horse poop.  So for the first hour we do nothing but sniff. He sniffs, I walk.  Then when he is tired and has smelled everything he wants to, we work on obedience, focused heeling or other commands.  

How does someone keep a dog from smelling things and why would they do that?  Mine was bred for nosework, so he would sniff the air even if I didn’t let him track.

That is an excellent article to book mark for future reference.

That's smart, letting him get his sniffs out like that. I've stopped Schubert from sniffing around the back yard before, when I need him to potty so I can get going in the morning. I'll have to start getting up a little earlier, so he can have his fun.

I do when we are out.  At home, if it’s time to pee and I need to get back inside, we go quickly, especially when it’s cold or wet.

What? I don’t remember.  Who has Alzheimer’s?

 That is an excellent article to book mark for future reference I memorized.
