I like it because I can keep better track of weather conditions, how long I am aging the track, the distance and shapes of the track, etc. I can also make notes about each dog's performance and what we need to work on. I learned to keep a log at the very first tracking seminar I went to. So I think that's a really good idea.
Tracking is hard work but is very rewarding so I say go for it!
As for Schutzhund, it was developed as the breed test for the GSD, but many other breeds participate now. IMO it is a good test for any working breed of dog prior to being bred.
I'm going to be doing some tracking with my new puppy...I had some questions, so I'll probably send you a PM
