    I'm with Howard. The dog gets one pass from me in the form of me finding a chair to sit in while I wait to see how long he wants to play this silly game. Next time it's burn, back or hunt it up and keep him in the area.

    I'm with Howard too if the dog is just being an ***hole but I don't really think that it's fair to the dog to over-correct for something that was created by the handler.

    Absolutely agreed if it was, as I believe you suggested, created by training for walk ups. In that case remove the confusion and proceed.
