Question:
My question is about dogs. What sort of things will attract them favorably by smell?



Replies:
Meat, the smell of another animal, or the smell of another dog seem to be favorite smells to attract dogs.

Grace Fields


Although several things may work, one thing never fails: food!

Other things include:
The smell of other dogs,
Their own smell,
Their owner's smell or the smell of a family member
The smell of other pack members,
Nay smells a dog associates with home or food.
