Reply To: Mary Hammond & Salu


I have a question that may be a bit off topic..if so please let me know…

I was working Salu with the blind hides in a different room. He found one scent but was unable to find the second. So, I let Lola into the room to search with him watching (a first as I wasn’t sure how each would react to the other finding the scent).
It was very interesting watching Salu observe Lola – as her search method is very different. More nervous energy – go anywhere vs. Salu slow and methodical. He watched her get on furniture, check different levels etc. and then he started doing that himself (kind of like the V-8 commercial “why didn’t I think of that?”) btw – the scent was on the ground…
Well, Lola found the second scent and was rewarded at the source. Salu comes and sits watching, wagging his tail. So I showed him the scent, let him smell it and gave him a treat. It seemed SO wrong to not include him somehow….
Was that the correct thing to do? If you have two dogs searching, how do you handle that? – or, would you ever have two with you at the same time?
