very light and totally positive. No need to get into a battle the day before a test. Also - more obedience, heeling, sits etc

I think it depends on the dog and where you're at. 2 years ago I had to train the day before a test and I mean really train with high standards. Otherwise, well it didn't always go well. Now? I still train the day before, but it's lighter and I'm careful of the concepts I train on. Like the other poster said, I don't want to get into a battle.
