.....When the judge critiqued your dog in each phase, did what the judge say about your dog surprise you or did you agree with just about everything the judge said? I am basically asking about the comments made concerning temperament shown during each exercise. .......
I have been surprised by scores a few times (both positive and negative), but for the most part I have agreed with what the judge has seen. Usually when I am surprised it is because I got a better score than I was expecting. Only in one trial did I not like what the judge said about my dog's temperament, but when thinking about it later, on that day, he was correct.
I remember at a regional event a Mal got 95 in protection with a basically perfect performance. The judge said the dog lacked aggression and power in the blind (which he did) and could not "V" the dog because of that. The owner did NOT agree.
