Traveling with odor sources

Lily and I traveled for Christmas. Her nosework supplies came along it was a wonderful chance to work in a novel environment. Typically I pack those in their own separate bag but in order to save space this trip I wanted to pack them in her travel bag. The jars do seal fairly well but I always feel like I might contaminate something and I definitely didn’t want Lily to think her travel bag had become an odor source… I stumbled onto a solution that involves Ziploc brand vacuum bags. Using the gallon size you can place three pint jars inside and vacuum out the air according to the package instructions which will prevent odor contamination and jar breakage. NOTE: These bags are relatively inexpensive compared to other vacuum bags so not all of them seal so you might need to test the seal till you find a good bag. I hope everyone is having a wonderful New Year. Canine Nosework Vol. 2 is coming along steadily but slowly...
