I’m writing fiction. One person needs to hold the dog until he is called by his trainer. What is the correct name of that second person? A word better than assistant?

    the handler is the person that holds or handles the dog. The helper is the person that either tempts the dog or does bite work or anything that the handler (owner) needs. These are the official terms used by many title clubs. For ringsport, they use the word Decoy. Same as the helper but a differnt name.
