At this point, you have only thrown in a couple PDQs – shoes and keys.
For the next series of missions, you will be integrating more of them as you go.
It’s important to remember that when we increase the difficulty in one area, we have to loosen up the other criteria a little so that it’s not getting more challenging for your dog on all levels. For example, if we add more PDQs, we should not increase the duration of the absence; we should decrease the duration of the absence to accommodate the new criteria and then as you see your dog getting more comfortable, increase the duration while continuing to use those PDQs.
