Really good job with your rewarding!! 😀

Sasha nails the first two hides. The 3rd hide, I can tell you from experience and of course watching Sasha, is in a location that does not allow much odor to come out. That type of material seems to hold onto the odor. I’ve even done hides where you can SEE the hide and dogs have trouble finding it. So I would not hold that against Sasha. The hide just wasn’t making itself known, and if it hadn’t cooked very long that could be another reason there wasn’t much odor coming out. Going forward I would avoid any hides that are surrounded by fabric. The other two seemed ideal!

Sasha did a very nice job. You could see her enthusiasm dip and start to get distracted after the first two finds. I think even when she started to offer you behaviors, in her mind it was because she didn’t detect anything else out there so when she went back to a previous hide I was applauding you for paying her again. 🙂
