David Winners Here are some ideas. Still too young for most of it, but you can start shaping things now.

Leave It always seems to be a hard one to get down really pat, but so much fun to play with. Our Lab was really awesome, breeder took her back from abusive situation and placed her with me. She was almost perfect with the kids, and once she knew what I wanted, excellent with obedience, and super fun. Her one fault was she HATED people in a UPS uniform (think the abuser was a ups guy). She lived for my praise, and wasn't a typical Lab about food, we actually free fed her!

I've been blessed with so many great dogs (and a few maybe not too great, but that taught me some really important lessons) in my life. I so wish I were already in a place to take on my planned puppy now. The waiting is so hard!

The more you proof everything your dog knows in a wide variety of situations, the more she is likely to generalize and always follow the commands.

Also, she's not too young to learn to heel, though I'd keep it short and upbeat, not expecting her to heel for long periods of time etc. You can also work on her recall like mad - under every single circumstance, over and over and over, because it's an important one. And Leave It is another great one, and you can keep working up to more and more tempting items. My Lab would leave a full juicy steak alone if I set the plate on the floor, and only go for it if I released her. Also, if you are clicker training, try shaping things, it's mentally exhausting for the pup.

I want to work on heel, but I'm not sure if she is too young. I've trained other dogs, but she seems to have a will to learn like no other I have had.... And I'm running out of things to teach a puppy...Any ideas on more commands?

I have always wanted to train my guy to balance a snack on his nose!
That's a good/difficult one! Maybe perfecting leave it would be a good idea before the breakfast one.......
