Nosework Week 4

The boys are continuing to practice their new nosework skills and learning about different hiding places for their tin.  Still making it fairly obvious to them where the hiding places might be but adding in some different heights.  And every once in a while attaching the tin directly to one of the cabinets.

Lance is still very prone to grabbing his tin when he finds it instead of doing his nice nose touch.  And I'm not sure how much he's really sniffing the room yet to narrow down his search parameters instead of just searching the obvious locations until he directly stumbles upon the scent.  Overall he's doing a pretty good job of continuing to search without asking for help and is fairly calm.  Lance might false alert or just stare at me if he gets stuck.

Vito is much more frantic in his searching.  Most sessions I can see him doing a more obvious job of sniffing the air for the general location but there's also many more times when he gets way too high and not thinking.  Usually the first search is like that and then if it takes too long to find the scent on later ones.  Typically his nose alerts are pretty good but for some reason in this session he was wanting to retrieve.  Vito rarely false alerts.
