    Haha! Poor Scout: “Stop touching me!” 🙂

    Your timing of when to release her is good. She’s squirming around so much it’s hard to figure out when to send her but you waited for just the right moment IMO.

    I see that “body shift” point you referred to when you were about to reward fast but Scout just as quickly decided she wasn’t sure (:23). 🙂 But you waited, she figured out the problem and clearly communicated to you.

    The only comment for improvement is to consider changing out her leash-to-harness-processes to someplace well before your search area. This might alleviate the conflict of her wanting to race into the area as you’re reigning her in.
