Lenny- Sarah only tried to "do nosework" a few times! I had to be really careful with my "finish" cue as the "ffff" in "Finish" sounds just like "fff" in "Find it!", plus, the way I was pointing with my hand looked a lot like the find it cue. It will be awhile before we can get to off leash work! I did joke with the judge (I know her) that we should get some 'gimmes' considering Sarah is part beagle, and a nontraditional breed for obedience (everyone else had labs, cattle dogs, german shepherds...)!
We trialed through a Rally League, which I would definitely recommend- it was two runs every Friday night for 4 weeks, and then the last week has four runs on a Sunday (and a party!). It was really nice because there were no looooooong days, and you really get to know the people there. And, your dog gets used to working in the same environment, which really helps their behavior!
