The helper doesn't "beat" the dog. Those are carefully placed hits with a padded stick.

Will the dog be distracted enough to come off of the sleeve? Or will the quality of the grip change from full & confident to more hectic?

Those are the kinds of issues the judge is looking for. A dog with good nerve strength is going to maintain a confident grip on the sleeve.

I'm sure Anne can explain far better than I.
