So I did not notice at the time that he kept skipping that corner, but this is definitely something we can work on. One tidbit I picked up yesterday at camp was that shorter dogs – and those that search with their head held down more (Border Collies)- will often pick up flat/low container hides more quickly than dogs that have a natural higher head carriage. We also have probably worked flat containers a lot more than taller ones, so he is very familiar with the flat ones.
It will probably be next weekend when I get to set up the vehicle searches.
