Nosework (1/31)

Naturally all of our searches were easter themed.

Exterior search video - We had an area outdoors with a bunch of easter eggs and were told there were 1-5 hides. The breeze was blowing at our back from the start line. Gimme found the first hide in 4 seconds and the next three really quickly, but the last one took her a long time. I tried standing upwind of the last hide to see if I could block any air current and make it easier (they were all in blue eggs, so it was easy to know which were hides), but it didn't seem to help. Two eggs she'd already found were converging over the last one, making it a hard puzzle and the breeze was stronger when she was searching. She finally goes out of the search area (at 3:17) and then comes back in and right to the last hide. Note she comes back to the search area before the leash ever gets tight. Gimme has used this search strategy for a long time and Dorothy commented on it.

Container 1 search video - There was only one hide and Gimme had it verrrrrry quickly.

Container 2 search video - This time there were two hides and again, Gimme was verrrrry fast.

Container 3 search video - And now we have three hides - Gimme aces this.

She was so fast on her containers tonight, there was none of her usual demolition behavior. Yayyyy Gimme.

BTW she came in season today. I've been expecting this for several days. With luck she'll have another really short season and we'll still be able to go to the trial - otherwise I'll loose the entry fees.
