If he loves obedience and you have a good IPO club, I would definitely check it out. Honestly, with his bright eyes and gorgeous coat, he will look stunning on that field. :-)
AKC also has obedience trials, UD and UDX.
I'm a little surprised that the outside area for the NW class was off leash. For the outside searches (exterior and vehicles)The NW1 trial as well as the number of mock trials that we have entered and the NW2 & 3 trials that I volunteered for were on leash only. Even on leash, my boy has tried to mark. For the most part he now understands it's not allowed. Instructors should be able to help Gandolph with this.
Along with the other suggestions, Rally may be worth looking into also and lure coursing if that's available.
It took us a while to find what we both were suited for and liked the most. I was hoping for agilities but the only reason he kind of liked it was because he got to run through a tunnel. Lol.
Wish you both lots of fun while on this quest.
