Hi Kim,

Thanks for your thoughtful feedback. In the two different places where we train, I was taught to always start a tad back from the start line. However, I agree with you: for some reason, I am MILES from where I need to be! This has put Prim in a situation where I haven’t allowed her to maximize as it were, especially due to the door frames and the way the scent is flowing among those pesky corners and edges (oh my!)

I will get both Prim and myself closer to the search area to assess further. She went through a spell last year where she seemed to have a “blindspot” with low hides, so honestly, I’m uncertain if that is an issue on top of my poor starting position or if it is compounding. Stay tuned.
