Insight Gained from being a helper
To those of you on this board that are both helpers and handlers,
What, if any, inisghts have you gained from being a helper (for other dogs) that has increased your ability as a handler with your own dog?
I'm new to the sport, I've been at my club as an active member for about three months now. My guy turns 7 months old in just over a week. The TD is great so are the helpers, But I wanted some outside prospective from what you've learned as helper and how its impacted you as a handler.
Follow up question is,
When did you decide to become a helper?
I was thinking about checking out a seminar in the near future.
