The main goal of that exercise is to prevent false alerting and encouraging your dog to wait while you retrieve the truffle before they are rewarded as in the field sometimes it takes a moment to extract the truffle from the ground and ideally your pup wouldn’t be off hunting again without you. It doesn’t matter what hand you have the truffle in, or the reward. It is the idea of building a delay into the reward system- that and not rewarding anytime the dog indicates unless there actually is a odor cache.
