Well then, trainer guy. I have a question (it's an open question so feel free to chime in everybody).

Our pup is really young. She's all of 10-11 lbs and was born 1/25/08. At what age should we expect her to begin "getting" the teaching we learned at our Petsmart puppy class with our first dog? Bodie was 3 months old when we got her. Is that about the right age for things like the name game.

And if she isn't technically 'ready' will spending the time working with her on those things somehow damage her ability/desire to learn when she IS able? I'm of the opinion that it certainly can't hurt to start teaching her the basics along with the housetraining we're working on.
