I think you will have a lot of fun. I haven't been to an actual match but I have entered the AKC 4-6 month puppy show, which is essential a puppy match. If the match was anything like that you will have a lot of fun. Judges were very nice, helpful and of course understanding of puppies. My observation was that the puppies that were closer to 6 month were pretty decently trained while the younger 4 month puppies were there just for fun.
