I think we can get it with the helper if he gives a little less distraction. She *was* stalking, but was more than willing to continue stalking with or without me. Its like trying to slow a fast tracker.. I know there has gotta be a trick, and just holding her back isn't the answer. I saw it started with a helper. I believe when I was trying it my helper was facing, but I think if maybe he was faced away it would have tempted her less.
