Re: Is this bond such a necessary thing for the dog to be successful?
This would/should never happen. You will be just setting yourself up for disaster and possibly messing up the training. Everybody will train and bond with a new dog id say for at least 2mos before going out to a trial. A person would be stupid to trial a dog at first meet, so would be the trainer and owner ! lol But this is a very diff scenario from the show ring.
