    Very interesting! It sounds like his perimeter laps are possibly to ensure the location is “safe?” Did he look like he was searching for the food after he did his lap on the second search? I wonder how much he stirred up the odor/food smell each time he went by the hide? How fast was he moving? Did his brain not quite engage until he was well past the hide?

    How fun to watch the wheels turn in a new K9NW pup! A lot of what might seem like “Duh” moments are part of the learning process. We forget with our older and more seasoned dogs that they probably went thru this, too! 🙂
