An instinct test does require the dog to be in the pen with the stock, and might initially begin on leash to make sure the dog has some control, but more likely is loose or dragging a longline. To instinct test, you need to see more than whether or not the dog will turn her head to look at sheep. You need to see if the dog will chase, gather, drive, etc.
That's what I thought, but when he explained it this is exactly what he said "It's pretty simple, you'll bring your dog in on a leash and we'll see if she has any interest in sheep"
