Hi Annie,

That is so interesting! I totally get the ‘building maps’ thought, I’d never considered that might be happening, but it makes sense.

I too find it fascinating that we can all give our dogs the same task (find truffles) and because of the nature of the work they are all able to and even encouraged to figure out the problem in their own way. When I watch Monza, Vidoc, Spring or any of the other dogs in the class they all approach the task differently. We have to become experts at listening to our dogs – that is pretty cool stuff!
