Wow! That was impressive! Really nice job!
The other thing that is nice is that he is willing to leave a hide to find another. Yes, you prompted him but hopefully you can fade that fairly quickly. He worked out those problems really well. AND, the deeper and slightly elevated hide (still at nose level) were solved in good time, they just seem “slower” in comparison! 😉
Just one small comment; When you released him to search, he was very ready. He was calm and appeared focused. However, you were holding him by the ear (not a big deal) so his head was up. I wonder if you’d not been touching him if he’d have noticed the threshold hide right next to where he was?? Something to think about !
