    Really interesting to see her hit on the blank boxes with that “hopeful” look! She does it rather quickly into the finding more phase of the search so it is definitely something to be aware of. Since you do read her so well, it’s a very good thing! It seems for her, paying her for going back to a hide is helpful. She didn’t spend a lot of time searching w/o getting a reward but I know you are headed to AK for a trial soon! So don’t mess up your training for the sake of the lesson! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    The good news is that she does get to all but one of the boxes AND she was very determinedly searching from the beginning so it was actually a very pretty search. What are your thoughts now about going into trial, Sue?

    OH – and yes! Watching her range out of the search area looking far and wide for another hide is a big clue!
