Looking for a starting point

Hey Y'all.

I am currently between Shepherds, but looking to get started training in the next year or so. I grew up with working GSDs so I have a basic knowledge of obedience, tracking, etc but was hoping someone might be able to point me in the direction of some good books/seminars/resources so that I can do some research before I take a blind plunge.
I have a middle-aged heeler that I was considering putting through the paces (more for my training than hers) before I look into getting my working dog and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good starting point. Thanks in advance!

The best way is to connect up with a team and go to some training without a dog. Talk with them one on one. Offer to hide for their dogs etc.
