Priming meaning before you go into a search area performing a simple alert sequence on a target.
For example, before I start hunting with Lolo in an area (although she generalizes the game and knows what is going on) I drop a target on the ground in visible range or view (or sometimes hold it in my hand) and ask for an alert. It is a way to provide information on the game being played.
You could do a couple of easy ones for Lola in a new area before you ask her to search for partially buried ones.
Does that make sense?
