It's not surprising to see that DS intense focus on the job at hand, but it's still a "wow" moment.

It's entirely possible I horribly misspelled it. It's intended to keep the dog's nose down.

I only ask because you're the most active person I see on here actually doing tracking. I'm training En for trailing game, and I've had to basically start over after doing nothing but area searches for the past six months or so.

What do you do to prepare for the tracking? Not asking for me or my dog. Curious about what you are doing. It's fascinating to see your videos. I have found dog sports enjoyable. The videos I've been watching lately are very entertaining and I'm hoping you will make a video of what you do to set up for Yoda.
