Oh thanks so much for the great feedback!
Will definetly have to pay close attention to Esprit’s “head check”. He is such a quick boy – to put in your work and my favorite name for him now – he is a [b]zippy firecracker[/b].
He makes me smile when he finds the target, puts it in his mouth and spits it at me showing off a nice bow. He is such a character 🙂
Before each search we played a bit of tug and I also primed him. He is such a happy camper when he can work and tends to get very excited to playing a bit with him is a good start.
I also asked in Vidoc’s thread how to approach the other search, the one with an assistant. What area and how many hides. Due to rain tomorrow (Monday) I might have to wait till Tuesday.
