Here are the exterior searches from the park this morning. The first search was a very distracting spot – I know there are woodchucks living under that shed – and it took him about 45 seconds before he actually engaged the search – then he found the hide within seconds when he decided to work it! In searches 2 and 3, I held him at the “start line” for a bit and he was right on those (paired) hides from the get-go. In search 4, he was a bit distracted off the start line, but caught the odor quickly and worked that one nicely – although that was another example of him needing to range out a bit from the hide to narrow down the source.
