It is easier to detect smell differences than "absolute smells", so a
good first step in training oneself to act as a tracking dog is to
cross smell tracks. If you walk along a street, slowly inhaling
through your nose you can detect the changes in the air when you cross
the track of somebody else. It is a quite interesting pastime to try
to "see" the world like a dog presumably does.
