Interesting to see! Bravo for keeping your searches simple! 😉
I know we have seen Cooper sniffing the ground before but it’s so fascinating to me to see him geared up and ready to search and then when released he immediately sniffs the ground! In the first search he does the “odor shake” and gets himself re-set for searching, finds the hide and yes, gets “swishy tail!” 🙂
In the second search he seems to begin similarly. Good to see that you were able to get him refocused and he was able to work after the skateboarder went by. He didn’t have quite as much swishy tail on the second search, probably because of the conflict but it did wag. Also, the fact that it was darker might have contributed to his reactivity?
