You don't always question trainers in bitework, I'm new, and when I first started working Anna I had doubts about everything and wondered why they did anything they did, the only thing 2 trainers agree on is what the third one is doing wrong.... That being said this was just a question as to weather training this way was normal, I've never seen it before, buuuut like I said ^^^ I'm new to every bit of this

Thank you!!! She's a beast, she's getting stronger, and faster, every time she's worked. All the people from the clubs around me and the people who have seen her work say they can't wait to see how she matures.

Thus the reason to ask questions. You should try to understand the why's and what fors to be the best handler you can be. To trust the helper blindly can go really, really well, or bite bigtime.
To be fair to your dog, ask before the session begins, what you'll be working on, and communicate during the session if the plan changes up. Consistency with one helper is best when the dog and handler are learning.
