Ok, this is actually our third try at this exercise – same set-up with new odor boxes in the same places. It is really hard for me to not reward my dog for that long a period of time! This time around I managed almost a minute of not rewarding and Hunter kept going back to the odor boxes and alerting – giving me sits, which he usually does not do unless I am very late with the reward. The paw slap on the greenies box at 1:25 is clearly frustration. He really kept searching for me and I did not see anything that looked like an impending false alert.
Hopefully next lesson I will do better at following directions! (I just have no sense of time out there!)
