Have fun! Lol... Seriously though, do have fun.. If your girl is still having a bit of an issue translating human from article I would do a runaway or two. Yes, it is visual, but your girl already knows how to follow odor, so the visual is to get the excitement up and prey drive (vs just hunt drive) up and help her shift to humans vs article. Might help. Otherwise, without knowing what you are working on, I would say enjoy and watch the beauty of your girl follow the invisible masmia.. Magical!

Beau is still jamming on HRD.

Tilly is doing fine with trailing but I am pushing hard on weight loss and ankle exercises. Trailing is brutal to the handler . So far I am down 46 lbs with more to go. I carry my weight well and am fine for HRD but really need to trim down all the way for live find. .............

IT is definitely neat stuff.

Good for you Nancy! Trailing is extremely demanding on the human and i understand the pain;I've had four knee surgeries and a partial replacement in my left knee. I can imagine the pain in your ankle. Beau is awesome!

That is great Nancy! Water is harder, imho, although both my dogs seem to have not had an issue thus far.. I just need to be able to read them better from in odor to over source. They both have shoreline finds, which was/is easier than Lake I think, lol.. Great job though! Beau is awesome!!!!

Water is exasperating because the dog can't work its own way to source and you have to read them and then try to get the boat moved the right way. We always run water with 2 dogs when possible (with dog 2 and their handler not seeing dog 1 working) and then consult with each other to come up with best estimate for position. Funny thing is the deeper the body the easier it can seems to pinpoint.

Our funniest one was when Beau hit an area and I am going. "You need to get another dog here as this is odd. I cannot pinpoint but he definitely has odor in this area but he is not giving me any strongest source" and I just drew an area on the map. Another dog ran it another day. Got the same thing we got [actually several dogs got different specific alerts in the same area] scratching our heads. Body was 2 miles away. The cemetery from the early 1800s that was not moved when they flooded the land to make the lake was about 80 feet down. Right where Beau was showing the change of behavior.
