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.
