On March 23, 2019, Vinca had her first experience with Barn Hunt, and passed her instinct test.

On September 14, 2019, Vinca qualified in her first Novice Rally run, winning first place over two other dachshunds. She qualified for her second leg at her second trial on 1 December, 2019. She earned her Rally Novice title at the Cascade Dachshund Club show on 15 February 2020.
