Default Disarmimg helper- dog crowding?

Ok- sorry, I don't know all the terms yet. In a back transport, which I think is followed by the "reattack" (is that right?) the handler will then walk up, sit the dog (no barking allowed) and then walk past the helper and circle back around to ask for the stick.

In some of the SchH videos I've watched, it almost seems like the handler is using his left leg to push the dog away from the helper- like the dog is crowding him. Is this a point(s) deduction? Is this a show of poor obedience, or is it desirable for the dog to want to keep on the "bad guy?"

Maybe this isn't as common as I thought because I can't find a youtube video to show as an example. Hopefully you guys understand what I'm describing.
