My air scent/wilderness SAR dog in training Diego ranges very well. In fact, he actually is out of sight/earshot for 10-15 minutes at a time. He isn't great about checking in with me (obviously
) until he has actually found his subject.
Any advice as to how to address this? I know ranging is good, but in the event of an emergency I need to be able to call him back, which means he actually needs to be paying some attention to me in addition to searching for his subject.
