There are successful SchH/IPO handlers that trained tracking with a ball. They would bury the balls along the track as a reward instead of using food. Some of the early dogs were not trained with food, but by tracking for a reward at the end of the track. Takes longer and you will always deal with speed, but there are ways to do it.
Obedience can also be done with toys, but it is much harder to get the precision needed for high points.
If you are on FB, there are a lot of groups on there that can answer questions, but finding a club (and I realized you asked about that earlier) would be the most ideal situation.
