The upper hand a skilled "stranger" like the vet perhaps or a trainer has, is the fact that they have the dog off balance to a degree.....which allows a skilled trainer or handler to take advantage of the dog in this state and proceed in a fashion exhibiting a higher level of obedience than most others.
