I think this exercise was good for Cooper! He was much more focused by the 3rd search.

In the 2nd search he showed some good ability to stay with the odor (delayed reward).

In the 1st search – it’s OK for him to skim the box, have a moment of recognition, verify with the other containers and come back. The rest of that search, well, we’ll just ignore that part. 😉
