    If you just recently got a pup, you should start teaching boundaries and what's right/wrong as soon as you get them. I started basic obedience (sit, down, watch me, etc) right at 8 weeks and both my dogs knew sit and down verbally by 11 weeks old. It's important to keep training sessions very short and positive with puppies. They don't have a huge attention span so don't expect too much from them, just be consistent.

    Are you looking for formal obedience, like you'd see in a competition, or just good manners, easy to live with? Both can be started right away, as puppies are eager to learn.

    The sooner the better. My dog was competing in Rally Obedience at 7 months old, earned her first title at 11 months.
    She earned her first CGC (Canine Good Citizen) at 5 months old.
    I got her at 11weeks and had her enrolled in basic puppy class the week after I got her.
