Why Stop?

When practicing agility with your dog, if there is a problem with an obstacle, go back and redo the that part of the course, don’t stop the dog just and redo just that obstacle.  Usually it is the handler’s fault anyway, why stop the dog?   I’ve seen lots of people express verbal and physical disappointment too when something goes wrong.  They complain, stop the dog, and put the dog back on the contact or whatever.    Great way to demotivate your dog.
