I'm not a big fan of them, and seldom run one when judging that level, since there's no requirement for one. :roll:

All too frequently, the excitement of the testing environment has already overwhelmed the beginners, and they have all they can do to just get the dog to be under quiet restraint, let alone be on the move when a bird is thrown.

I've just not found any importance to evaluate that form of control at that level. It's not what I'm looking for in a Junior dog.
