    It is interesting to me how what WE feel to be our weakest performances often are seen by others as some of our best. That’s what I see in this! Totally serious when I say that.

    Here’s what I liked:

    I actually think you made the correct move to use your leash to gently move her along from the grass spot.
    I think you were gentle but persuasive in getting Kalli to let go of whatever she was being distracted by and getting back to work.
    You did what you needed to do to keep her focused on the vehicles.
    You recognized her indication when she finally said she’d found odor and didn’t question it.
    You were confident in your “alert” call and you were confident in your “finish” call.
    You worked the dog you had in front of you. 🙂

    I will caution you, however, to not be sold necessarily on what you think the judge can see! I know a judge who would assess alert calls from the opposite side of the vehicle because he could see the FEET from where he was standing! 😀

    Nice job!
