    Stormy is so damn cute! That was a great session! It would be good to stick with similar drills until the false indication rate gets lowered.

    There is some troubleshooting to do:

    – Is it from different levels of odor on those objects?

    – Is it from any cues from you?

    I would be curious to see what happens if Brian hides for you, so you are totally blind to the location. If she falses, he can simply give you a thumbs down and you keep searching, if she is good he gives you a thumbs up and you reward.

    One good thing about blind searches is that it automatically forces the handler to notice the differences in their dogs searching behavior.
