    Hi!
    I have uploaded a video of Elle this past weekend working an outdoor search. It was a very hot weekend and I had worked 2 previous hides with her earlier in the day. So Elle was tired during this search which is good so you can see how she acts. The previous hides she nailed easily and were done in the same area as this video.
    Also wanted to ask if you will be doing any training sessions during the Eugene truffle festival this January as we would love to come up and meet you guys and have Elle work in a real truffle forest setting!
    Thanks!

    Hi Kristin,
    Here is the Elle and the towels!

    Hi Kristin,
    This is the first video as you can see Elle took a bit to realize no boxes!

    Hi Kristin,
    I am uploading new video now. I forgot to use the clicker…
    The videos show 3 hides with Elle. I put the scent under pillows and blankets so she had to keep her nose on it. Hopefully I stayed long enough with her?

    Hi Kristin,
    Cool!
    My husband is out of town so I will post video when he gets back this weekend. I have been hiding the odor under stacks of pillows on the floor all over the house, and Elle has been enjoying sticking her nose between them to get to the odor. I have been staying and rewarding as we uncover the odor.
    She is having fun!

    Here is my post that didn’t go thru,
    Hi Kristin,

    I watched the video analysis and here are my answers to your observations!

    Elle will stay on scent with her nose and has started to look up at me with the “hey here it is and where is my chicken?!”

    We have cleaned up the house and put the boxes away – I have worked with the clicker without her around so hopefully my timing is better now.

    I do use the same verbal cue, “let’s go to work”. We are not doing nose work anymore and just focusing on truffles, so I hope we can use this command as she is very familiar with it.

    I am now “having a party” when she hits the scent. Thanks for the tip for luring her away as most of the time I am doing the training by myself.

    I filmed the white container video first then hid the container in the box. She is used to car searches, house searches and outside searches all without boxes, just hidden q-tips. The boxes are what she started with as a pup and is comfortable with and I thought it would be good to start with pairing the new truffle scent with her boxes and her normal scent anise. I then removed the anise and she now just on the truffle scent. So I will remove the boxes now.

    During the 2nd video, she did not hit the container in the box correctly so I waited until she gave me a better alert.

    Yes, the 3rd video is the last in the order.

    I will make sure I work on getting down with her during the reward, as this is different behavior from scent work training, and will stop using the boxes and switch up the containers.

    And thanks for the tips about how to stop, and will pick up the scent, as she will stay until I run out of chicken!!
    Elle is really loving this!!
    Thanks,

    Denise

    Hi Kristin,
    Sorry I thought my last post to you had gone thru!
    I was on vacation without my laptop which must have been the issue as I was using a notepad.
    I noticed my time is up on the 25th. Could we extend?

    Hi Kristin,
    Elle doesn’t have a easy alert yet though she is starting to look a me after putting her nose to scent. She usually stays on the scent until I reward her.
    I tried to open the videos but there wasn’t anything there?

    Hi Kristen,
    Here is a short video of Elle and truffle scent – the session went on longer than video!
    Sorry it was cut short!
