Hi Christina!

Alerting correctly to samples is the first step so that is excellent that she’s doing very well with that! How long have you been working on scent training with your pup? Have you worked through all the steps or are you still progressing through?

When you are low or high and she hasn’t alerted, you can pair it with a sample – bring out a scent sample that is near what level you are at and then rub it on the back of your knee, hand, or foot. This will pair the sample with the live scent and may help bridge the gap for your pup.
