Either give up on walkups, or judge them as appropriately as is possible in a Junior situation
The very first test I EVER ran started with a walkup & it so wasn't clear to me what was supposed to happen. I ended up stoppoing too soon-the judges signaled for the birds. My dog never saw them because of where I'd stopped. We were out before we started. 6 hour drive for my first test & I was thoroughly discouaged & thought maybe this wasn't going to be fun after all. Lest you think it was just us-we passed the next 4 tests for her JH.

Soooo... if you're going to do it-be extremely clear-especially with the "Running their first hunt test" crowd!!
