Yes, thanks for the suggestion to work lots of ground hides and on variable surfaces. This is making me re-think nose work and the need for “textures.” [In tracking, I’m always thinking about surfaces as Prim truly is a nose-to-footprint tracker and she struggles on long stretches of asphalt (with no foliage around). Dirt, grass, snow, ice, rock all seem to hold the odor better, but in different ways depending on the conditions.]
