I'll leave running blinds for the experts.

But for glove work in utility, a fun game you can start with is paper plate retrieves. Put out a paper plate with a treat on it, mark the plate, and send the dog to get the treat off the plate.

Once the dog understands that, you can put three plates out, but only put a treat on the plate you will be sending to.

This game teaches the dog how to mark, and the great thing is that the dog doesn't have to already have a formal retrieve to be successful.
