Didn't want to hijack another thread, but one of the posts got me thinking.
Would you consider taking a dog off of the test grounds to 'address' a behavior that you observed, in say the first series, like creeping etc. Or do you never 'train' on test day? Does it help to reinforce a desired behavior in this situation when you can see that your dog may be on the verge of 'blowing up"? I realize the dog would probably give one multiple opportunities to correct said issues during training. I unfortunately, am not that good.
FYI: I have one dog that I have trained myself through 2 senior passes, so I know very little about this game that I enjoy so much.
