What are you -really- training?

For six months I've been quite confident I was training Griffin to find a specific scent and to lie down.

However.... it's not as strong as I had thought (and hoped).   If at all possible, he will dig/paw/bite/retrieve the container rather than alert.  The Down is only happening if it's surely inaccessible.

Now... he at least hasn't had much opportunity to practice the paw/mouth behaviors.... but we've also not gotten the other response strong or clear enough that he will resist his desire to retrieve/paw/dig.....

Back to edit our training plans....
