Even my three year old GSL dog managed to pass schH1 when we FOLLOWED a bulldog bitch in full heat. The club was not following pro to call by making the bitch go last, instead made my dog last because we were not members of their club. So I doubt that females would affect those seasoned competitors.

'seasoned competitors'....had to lol at that!
Sucks that they'd do that to you, though...
Totally agree with Joan that a dog this well trained should be able to completely ignore bitches in season. Besides, the females in heat were last to go. And being in heat certainly didn't keep Debby from taking the #1 spot, and another in-heat bitch placed 9th.

Just an observation from my end, since I know how bitches in heat affect my dogs at home, throughout the period that the bitch is in heat (even when the dogs are kept significantly separated from the in-heat bitch).....even when they follow commands perfectly, there is a distractive element that slows things down.
