    Yes, except that chocolate it toxic to dogs, and they tend to eat the foil as well. (their paws are useless at getting the foil off).

    Absolutely.  That's because Easter eggs are colored using vinegar.  So all you'd have to do is train your dog to sniff out the smell of Easter eggs, a smell that wouldn't just be the vague sulfuric smell of eggs but the combined smell of sulfur and vinegar.  

    Dogs' smell is so keen, even if the eggs weren't colored, you could train a dog to sniff them out by spraying them with any kind of scented spray or even just having the same person handle each egg and then having the dog track the eggs by having the dog smell another egg that that same person had touched.
