“Paying out the line” is a term we use to indicate giving more leash to let the dog move in front of you. Down the narrow space between vehicles is a good place to use this so you don’t crowd your dog. It does mean the dog needs to want to work away from you but all too often people are rushing to keep up with their dog and the body pressure moves the dog away from the odor they were working. You do a nice job of stepping back and opening up the search for Prim to work the second hide and you were not on top of her at any point. 🙂
