I think I resemble that remark, Kim!!! Although, honestly, when Biscuit started offering a beg/sit pretty as her alert and Blackie offered just a plain sit, I thought I was in GREAT luck. Only later did I realize the disadvantage. I never TRAINED that indication, and never used a clicker for nose work, and learned fairly early on to avoid the dreaded “YES!” and even to avoid using “Alert” other than at trials. But we still had quite a job to persuade Blackie that she was being paid for finding odor, NOT for sitting.
