The BH is primarily a temperament test. The dog must show basic control, an understanding of the exercises and do well enough to pass. The dog leaving the handler during the off lead heeling could have lead to the dog failing under some judges due to a lack of control.
SchH is not AKC. AKC is entirely judged on points. The temperament, attitude, and character of the dog is not considered as long as the exercises are performed correctly (and the dog does not bite the judge, growl, or attack anther dog). In SchH because these things do matter and it is not just about points, failing one exercise only loses you those points for that exercise. In the long down a dog can receive partial points for staying through a certain stage of the other dog's routine.
