Assuming dogs A & B were declared treed in that order, score dog A, walk one minute, recast A. Score dog B, walk back to the last place you heard dogs C & D. Follow rule #9.L.

9.L. Going Out Of Hearing Of Trailing Dog(s) To Score Tree - When a cast walks out of hearing of trailing dog(s) to score a tree, the cast should return to the area where the dog(s) were last heard. If dog(s) are not heard within six (6) minutes, points will be deleted and the time-out rule applied or the handler(s) may receive minus strike points and continue the cast at their option. If handlers with struck dogs are unable to reach a unanimous decision, time-out will be called. Note: If dog(s) trail away from the cast this rule does not apply. This rule applies only when cast walks out of hearing of trailing dog(s) to score tree(s).
Please prepare yourself and your hound. Hunt the dog, read the Blue Book, and your Good Book!
