I just cross posted what I put at Leerburg adding in the results of my testing.........



"Okay, hopefully, with Yuko's guidance, I did this right....

#1 is my Dutch, ROCK, in an air scent exercise, you cannot hear his bark alert because of the wind........

#2 is my Mal, JESEA, alerting on bones.....we took a short clip of her to demonstrate Pavlovian response (licking lips) when she hits odor and alerts on source. I am on my way out the door to test IPWDA Advanced Cadaver in about an hour, so I will post another full length video when I get back......

Edit in:

WE PASSED!!!!!

Four areas.....over four hours old.....one hanging, one buried with three false holes, one surface and one negative.
No misses, false alerts or exiting the search area....handler must explain dogs alert before the testing begins and handler has 30 minutes to search each area. Jesea and I completed the entire test in 35 minutes.

WHEEEWWWW!!!!!
She did awesome and I am VERY proud of her. She will get an extra recreational bone for this. \:D "

ALL FOUR areas in 35 minutes?!
Yep, it took her about a minute on the first hide which was buried ( she passed over all the false holes), 10 to 15 on the negative area (which is because I HATE to search negative areas even though her body language is pretty easy to read and if it is a negative she does not change at all), and then the hanging and surface hide was about half and half as there was not a lot of wind so I made sure to cover my entire search area methodically.

She is a good little dog although she is not the first to pass in that amount of time.
