FWIW it's all about how to approach and what you take away from it. You'll also learn a variety from each sport, MR, FR, or IPO.
This, definitely. It will make you a better trainer in the sense that at the very least, you will gain some perspective especially regarding working dogs and the roles of drives and aggression. If/when you observe, watch critically. If you're lucky, somebody experienced will be able to talk you through what you're seeing or discuss it with you. I think every new adventure makes us better trainers in some way, personally.

If you do make it down to Chicago sometime (like to meet a certain spaniel boy...) you are welcome to come to a club practice with me as well.

Personally, bitework hits some kind of adrenaline junky nerve I didn't know I had, so now I'm addicted. Plus my dog lives for it, so that helps too. lol
