Time to increase the track length and complexity by adding more terrain and some obstacles. Here The Boss, 9 month German Shepherd Dog, has to follow the track across a very wet and muddy pass which throws him off for a short while. i really like the way he stayed calm and focused whilst trying to figure out the puzzle with vitually no help from me. I prefer, where ever possible, for the dog to figure it out for themselves. He quaters back and forth until he finds the scent and is back on track in a flash once he picks it up and commits to it. He very quickly finds his next article and is rewarded - Success!!! He is progressing quite nicely despite the infrequency of his training at times.
