Yes you always set the dog up for success, lol. Nikon's very obedient in the protection phase but I still turn left away from the helper, and if the helper is close you can ask them to step back too (the handler controls the routine). If you are allowed to chose, why risk it? I also take the stick while in front, but that's personal preference.
