NW3_MtCityGA_Kinky sourcing a vehicle hideOff leash vehicle searches aren’t usually an option in a trial or even in practice but they can teach us a lot about how our dogs would like to search. In this search, Spriggs finds 4 hides (all known) in a large area with 17 cars and trucks in about 4 minutes. Because the area has a wall or fence all the way around it, she is able to use that to help her find the source of the 4 hides. If you ever get a chance to do vehicles off leash, I think you’ll find it increases your confidence in your dog’s ability to quickly assess if a vehicle has odor or not.
