Poor Blackie seems to be the girl who always gets to work through distractions. Last Thursday, we were doing some exterior searches, and I had placed one hide about 2′ up on the trunk of a HUGE tree at the park where we practice agility. When Biscuit worked, she had no problem — did a good job of finding it, nothing to distract her. When Blackie’s turn came there were TWO squirrels, chasing each other in the branches of the tree. Needless to say, although I tried to refocus her, this was just too much distraction, even for her!
