In any case, here she is:
I am really good at this, especially lately in barn hunt, and you all know I’ve had to eradicate “show me” from my vocabulary. It occurs to me we didn’t have a problem with “show me” until we started using peanut butter as a reward for nosework and barn hunt. With such powerful motivation, Gimme is willing to tell me anything she thinks I want to hear.The other big handling error is getting between dogs and where they are searching. Granted, the handlers don't know where the hide is, so it can be a challenge in some searches. Of course if the dog is encouraged early in training to lead the way and the handler lets them, it pretty much becomes a non-issue. In vehicles - I can guarantee you source is going to be somewhere ON THE VEHICLE. There is just no reason why you should be between your dog and the vehicle (except if you want to block the dog from a hide they've already found). The same is true of container searches - source is going to be IN A CONTAINER.
