Tracking is usually a fine start but I would talk with the team. You have plenty of time for the summer after you talk with them. Generally, under 2 is great but we have allowed as old as 3 or 4, typically there it is a first dog for someone and we know they will probably either quit or follow with a second. For team members around 6 months or so is good for starting. WE work with puppies etc....realizing the obvious risks that the pup may have a future problem (pups a gamble)

Depending on the team there may be a wait before they will evaluate a puppy or dog. Something to consider. Also, being on a team may help you verify your selection. We like to work with teammates when they look for new dogs and puppies.
