It isn't a large club and that's fine with me...Hopefully everything will go great...I have no idea what to expect or watch for.....

Any suggestions?

Go with an open mind. If you don't understand something ask. Talk to all the members, not just the TD or Helper. Watch how the dogs interact with their handlers. Are they happy? Seem to be enjoying the work? Of the dogs you see, are they at a level you want to be at or expect? Watch the methods of training. Are they methods you're willing to use? If you decide to work your puppy, be sure to tell them he's teething.
