It will be exciting to watch your progress. There is a lot of experience in CARDA. We did have someone come to our team with a dog that was training in California but not certified and one HUGE gap in his training was muck and water; we have a lot of it but there was hardly any where he lived and the dog really had a hard time with creeks, streams, and ponds and even swamp goo. Given the resources you have for training, I doubt you will need a lot of help here but some of us are glad to bounce things off of.
She is a lovely dog!
The other advice I have is follow your mentors. The biggest mistake I have made and seen made early on is reading the internet and changing things around on the dog (like changing the trained indication several times), and forgetting that a behavior only persists if it is rewarded (like the intermediate steps in a recall sequence)
