@DavidWinners - very true. My challenges of max not liking other dogs had some benefits in working through my stress with working in a class room filled with other dogs- off leash with a xpen used as a separation of the room from the start. Max never skipped a beat and he not once paid any attention to the dogs loose or on leash while working. A lot of trust was formed with this while working. Except for Walking to starting line and when we were done and walking back to our seat I had to be on alert. I have done no trials just ort’s but a nervous wreck waiting between each ort In the car was painfully nervous mixed with incredible excitement after each ort then more nerves. I felt confident though and had no doubt as we when doing the ort.

Some good places I practiced at - near shooting ranges, abandoned barns - ( not alone but has the creepy effect) Home Depot with crazy machines going all the time, boating docks. Outside a dog park, restaurants, trains station.

this podcast episode has some nice tips about nose work, and some interesting stories. Just be aware that there are plenty of "f-bombs" if you are listening with young kiddos.

Thank you all for taking the time to respond. I think her alerting issues are mainly because of handler errors in training. I was sometimes rewarding the eye contact because I was taking it as a cue from her that she found the hide, but she seems to do better when I am not rewarding her for that but instead rewarding her for having her nose on the hide and giving her jackpots of treats when she's doing a down with nose on the hide. I am now being more careful to time the rewards accurately. Also did the blind hide thing. She's already doing much better and using her nose more since I stopped rewarding the eye contact and instead rewarding a lot for focus on the hide. No false alerts today.
