Looks like you’re starting to get to a more comfortable place! This is great!
A couple of comments;
Try going with a shorter leash – even a 4 or 5-foot leash – so you don’t have all the extra trailing behind or in your hand, which can make it more challenging.
The other thing I noticed is from the time stamp of about (1:00-1:07); You comment that she’s checking all of the containers but it appears from the video that she actually skips much of the containers in that area. Now, there is no hide there but I wonder if you were less concerned because you knew where the hides were? This is where I would coach you to stop/slow your forward momentum until she investigated the container.
Overall, tho’, a good amount of progress! 🙂
