Yup, that's Jolie, nose down a lot and nervous when she sees more than one choice, she prefers not to look and just wait until I tell her. A.J. used to sort of be like that but being a boy he decided to watch me and knew where I wanted him to go..does not seem like Jolie is developing that talent.
I tried teaching Jolie Andy's scent articles but she was not interested.
Jolie does make a wonderful therapy dog and loves being a social butterfly. Tomorrow she goes to work with me at school..and Saturday she works a party.
Wish I had the time to try tracking but just not enough time:(

And Jolie who aspires to one day be like MACH Rosey!
Watching Jolie is a lot like watching Rosey. Not that you need another event, but I think Jolie wants to be like "Rosey, TD" (tracking dog). Jolie has her nose down on those runs, and like, Rosey, she doesn't like to be wrong. That is why Rosey is really a good tracking dog, she is serious and careful to check out all angles before turning a corner. And tracking is an un-timed event; as long as the dog is working, and you are going in the correct direction, you get to continue.
Rosey gained a lot confidence once we started tracking. I firmly believe that tracking saved Rosey's agility career. It was at tracking camp that Gail Workman psychoanalyzed Rosey and told me that Rosey does not like to be wrong and that I needed to adjust my handing (in all events) to accommodate her need to be correct. For the past couple of months, Rosey's agility warm-up was retrieving her tracking glove or other tracking articles.
