Default Why take a test?

I see shutzhund as a breed standard test, its pass/fail if a dog meets the working standards.
Some people take the test and training leading up to it with the goal of getting the dog to pass. I could care less about doing garbage training to earn some points from a human judge. I think its more appropriate to look for the dog to fail, if it does then thats that-the dog failed. Not some stuff where they lead the dogs along doing a shutz test every week to weak dogs to get them used to it while avoiding putting pressure on.
