Thanks!
I put plenty of treats on the track and I don't give her too much at the end. We haven't done articles yet.
I haven't tired her out before the track, but I will do that next time and see if that helps. And age it longer.

Serpentine, articles, circle track (they start and finish in the same location), more food, tire her out a bit before you track, longer and more corners. Make sure the track is the reward and not the end so if you are using food there should be a lot of food on the track and only a tiny ending pile for the finish.

Longer, harder tracks can help especially with experienced dogs, but they can also cause stress and fatigue making the dog faster or hectic.
