I just realized my comment may have come off as rude. I apologize.

It all comes down to how the dog is being worked. If this is a concern to you, then don't let the helper slip the sleeve until you have a line on your dog. Once the line is on, let helper slip, recall dog back to you and when she comes to you, YOU play with her and the sleeve like a giant tug. Don't put it on, just be interactive with her and the sleeve.

Again, it comes down to how the dog is worked. I don't slip sleeves. I am not a reward. I'm an adversary.
