We do cover how to set up blind hides in later lessons– which is what we call it when you don’t know where the truffles are. It is completely possible Rudy is aware of your body language and reading that as an indication of where to check. As humans we send out more subtle clues than we often think. This is critical at later stages too for handler reasons (sometimes you don’t even realize how much you are tipping off your dog) but also for stress reasons!

If you can, film some of it, we’d love to be able to look and provide feedback.
