Pig skins

Hi there, new to the forum and pretty fresh on the pig hunting. Have hunted for 10-12 years but caught the pig hunting bug a couple years ago. Have got a pup thats just starting off and wanting him to start using his nose and keep him occupied round home during the week. Has anyone in the Christchurch area got any pig skins , ears or trotters lying around?
Many thanks

One thing I used to do with young pups ..was lay a trail of biscats/cat food in an enclosed area...then let the pup find them...don't use heaps.Eventually just put some in a small heap,the pup will track your track.You can also introduce your pig smells/skin whatever by tying the skin on a string and drag it to were you put the biscats.I used to tell the pup...find it..it starts as a game but eventually the pup realizes whats its nose is for.Also plenty of positive reinforcement when the pup gets it right...good boy etc.
