Hi Alana, I have not yet introduced Zoey to wood or cement blocks. I have been using 3 identical plastic boxes and the tea balls. Over the holidays, I didn’t practice much with her, so I am getting back into it again. I think she may be starting to figure out the scent thing, as she is more consistent picking the correct box. She still knocks them all over, but I feel she will become more thoughtful as she gains more success.
I do have a question about the “verbal cue words” that are introduced in Lesson 3. I watched the video with Ryu where you are using “Zuch” as a cue word to begin hunting. I decided to use that word, as it won’t interfere with anything else we have used. The question is, when I say Zuch to begin the hunt, am I to say it again after she finds the target?
