Default Brace?

Does anyone know if there are any venues where one can compete in brace obedience and/or rally with two different breeds of dog?

I was just messing around with the dogs tonight and discovered the boys have a knack for brace work. Gavroche tends to stay on the inside/close to me, Logan on the outside, and they move in unison. They're not perfect, but for never having tried it before they're pretty good! Not sure what adding a leash might do to it though

Anyway, all I've ever heard/seen is brace being done with two dogs of the same breed. Even if there isn't anywhere to compete, I'll practice it anyway. It's fun for all of us, and maybe someday when I have a second collie we can give it a try. Also, any tips on training in brace would be awesome!

The only brace work I ever did was in conformation. I have not seem it in any thing else.

In CKC brace obedience can be done with dogs of different breeds as long as they both have a CD on them. Most people just do it with two of the same breeds either because of a speciality or because they just own more than one of the same breed lol.
