    Prim worked this search so nicely! 🙂

    It looks like you took a moment at the start to get Prim focused so once she began her search she was right on task! I think it helped that prim could work the curb so there was a tiny bit of elevation at the beginning but she continued from hide to hide at that level. Nice job!

    We – as handlers – think ground hides are easy so we don’t take the time to train them like we do other challenges. We work elevation and inaccessible and converging odors but we need to train for ground hides, too. We’ll cover some of this in the “Back to basics” course but I would suggest working lots of ground hides with different kinds of surfaces from rocks to sidewalks to big grass fields. 🙂
