Sometimes we need to look at how to build enthusiasm for the dogs who are searching. Dogs who are ho-hum about the whole process and not that excited about odor. If WE up our enthusiasm and (without scaring the dog) rush in to pay at odor (almost beating them there – without hovering) it might just spice things up a bit. Have a party! Pats, good words of praise, happy voices! And enthusiastically asking the dog to keep searching for more.
Experiment a little and see if that doesn’t build some excitement in your dog. 🙂
