Thanks for the valuable feedback!!! Glad you pointed out some handler mistakes that I can work on during the break.
Today I didn’t dwell on hides. No marks, I couldn’t remember where they were and I didn’t care if we loose some pieces of truffles or not.
After 3 hides and the last one was a manufactured success I ended it. Poor Esprit started to cough. Bee got the cough a few days ago and just today Esprit too. Nothing serious but I preferred to end his session with a success (and hope the other two dogs won’t get the cough).
I am looking forward to December 1 and will practice in new environments and on my handler skills.
