Yeah kind of. Scent recognition is the first step... One of the class descriptions I read indicated you could use the training to have your dog find things you've lost in your house like keys or cell phones, so a lightbulb instantly went off in my head! Plus, when Ralphie is not being made to heel on walks, he will sniff out and follow scents for blocks.
