Elly, the three main references that I found useful were your write-up: https://www.dobermantalk.com/general-...-tracy-jo.html
This one, Schutzhund Village
as well as... Schutzhund Tracking
After reading all three, I was still left with the questions above. I'll re-read them as I may have missed something.
3. When the food is all gone, she still was adimently looking for more, sniffing deep in the grass, when/how do you make her stop? Just pull her out, make her heel, reward with a treat from you had and congratulate her?
Relates to the square specifically, because there is no "end" to it. I understand the reward technique once you get to the end of the track, but the square has no end...i just want to make sure I reinforce the correct behavior and stay constistant.
