very acute hearing
If the handler is walking the dog in a new location, the dog has no environmental photos of the area. Therefore, if the dog should become lost or disorientated after following a really exciting track or chasing prey, it is very important that the handler remain in the vicinity of where the dog last smelt or saw them before it went off and got lost. The dog can then retrace its steps/scent back to the handler. (see Sound for advice about calling to your dog in such situations - don't shout)
