Way to young. Let Stella play at her own speed at this stage. Light training is good. Walking your intended route at Stella speeds for short periods with breaks on a soft surface is good. Master the heel, most important. In the wild wolf pups join the hunt at 6 to 8 months or when the adult teeth are in. I have started my dogs anywhere from 10 to 18 months depending on condition and overall health. My last boy Prince Jack of Hearts [RIP] had pano at 8 to 10 months and it was little scary. We started at 18 months. Jack lived for 13.5 years.
