We've always done this in woodlands with our Cavaliers - making it very easy to start with, and then harder for them to find you - it's a brilliant exercise for teaching them to always be aware of where you are and to come and find you, rather than the other way around.
Since he's been feeling better, TedBear runs around all over the place, but he ALWAYS knows where I am, I've tested him quite often and either walked on from where he last saw me, or hidden - he finds me immediately.

Our trainer suggested taking your dogs to a neighbours backyard where everything is new and calling them or a tennies court or kindergarten fenced play area to practice. Now that the nice weather is here and finally her shots are done plus the 2 wks wait... I AM FREE TO TAKE HER TO PARKS and look for places to practice!
