Again, great start sequence. (This is in reference to the easter egg hide)
I do like how she uses that herding dog memory of hers to recheck previous areas. Although she doesn’t have a strong alert yet, be aware of her doing this, as that ‘look’ and pause could be interpreted as a subtle alert- in this case however, the target had moved.
The other thing to note, which is good on your part as a handler, is your limited your vocal cues to her- but when she stops to look at you ,it is as if she is posing a question, and by saying ‘go hunting’ you are confirming and encouraging. Nicely done.
Again. Good timing on the reward.
