|Since you have a local club, make a phone call... Generally speaking the terrier clubs are very welcoming and can answer your specific questions. It also makes a different between JRTCA/AKC. You can't know if your dog will like or dislike an activity until they try it. If it's a typical JRT odds are they'll enjoy it.
As for what's involved you send your dog down a den that has a rat in a cage and the dog has to sniff out the right direction. It's not terribly complicated until the upper levels. Search 'Introduction to Quarry" in google if you want specifics. It's a heck of a lot easier than hunting with terriers which is a walk interspersed with a lot of digging out the dog.
