VERY GOOD! What you want to see is the dog dragging you to odor to bypass those distractors. 😉
At the (1:36) mark, we see Hunter LINGER slightly at one of the distractor boxes. THIS is what you need to recognize when you keep your dog in a search too long! Knowing where odor is and is not, it is very clear that Hunter is not interested in anything but odor – until – he is in the search a tad too long. (Which is perfect and what we needed to see.) But then he is again reinforced by odor which is why it is REALLY important to pay him when he goes back to odor.
