Very nicely done, Lois!!!
You manufactured the success at the perfect time. This session is exceptional!
It’s perfectly ok for her to check Speed’s spots. That is quite normal. You do a great job of redirecting her when the distractions appear and the part I REALLY like, is how you brought her back to the search area with that little whistle. It was a nice subtle “Hey, that’s a little too far. Come back closer to me please.”
Ah…sibling rivalry does play a role 😉
Love the cat!
I cut myself off at the end of the video analysis here but I was just going to add that I agree with your assessment. I think adding one lightly buried one is very appropriate. Go for it!
