I found the method posted in reply to my comment to be really helpful... Step then slide foot sideways and drop food into footstep like that. I was apparently too retarded to figure that out on my own LOL.

Rosemary are you feeding before tracking? Elsie was really bad with skipping food drops early in our training, which is why I quit using food... But she got better when I gave a small dinner, no breakfast and tracked around midday, then fed a bigger dinner that night. I've found food every 3 steps is a good medium between having enough food to last a whole track (working trial, and I assume AKC tracks are pretty long!) and enough food to keep her nose firmly planted on the ground.
