About 4-5 weeks.

BoTaBe Many great videos already, just wanted to add two of mine.
"Obedience" (heeling, sit...) with my pup when she was about 12 weeks old:



And just because I haven't seen any agility videos yet, here's our third agility training when she was abot 6 months old:

Merciel There are a million different ways to teach scent articles. Probably the two most popular ways to get started are the squeeze cheese/"round the clock" method and the tie-down/pegboard method (Google those and you should be able to find writeups pretty easily).

My current instructor uses a different method, which I won't spoil except to say that you can get a glimpse of it in this video (warning, the music is kinda loud):


at 0:34 to 0:37 (and then the final result at the very end there).

I actually used yet another method to teach Pongu scent articles because at the time I wasn't even thinking about competition obedience seriously and was just puzzling through my own approaches as part of a trick. I figured if I messed up teaching it as a trick well then welp who cares, whereas if I messed up teaching it with actual articles then I might have some work undoing a bad foundation.

I've posted this one many times before, but here's my original "scent article" project (first section w/mini liquor bottles only):


I taught that to Pongu by rubbing a stinky treat on my hand (I used different types of treats so he wouldn't get too fixated on trying to find any particular one) and then holding the correct (tequila) bottle and clicking him for making contact with the bottle with his nose. Gradually faded out the treat smell so it was just the smell of my hand, added more objects to discriminate among, then tacked on the retrieve.

Getting him to do it with metal articles was a whole 'nother ordeal but I'll spare you that story.

Sri Enjoyed watching your videos too, Merciel! I started shaping with ours a few days ago, and I am surprised how much I am enjoying watching him think.

I'm curious how you taught him the 'finding game. Can I read about it online somewhere?

Im not great with convos with non dog people these days because its like oh what do you do for work? I train dogs. Oh so what do you do for fun? I train dogs. What do you do on your time off? I train dogs.
Oh I never would have guessed!

Here's me screwing around with Pongu this morning before I got dressed for work. You can tell it's formal when I'm in pajamas.

Utility scent article drills. This is midway through the process -- Pongu understands the basic exercise and I want him to start problem solving for various potential complications he might encounter in the ring (other than the last repetition, which is pretty much just a straight presentation of the articles):


Shaping to get both front feet on the tape strip at the end of this platform:


^ that's the second session working on that particular concept, so Pongu is still figuring out what exactly I want him to do on that one. Ultimately this is going to be Attempt #9872394734 to straighten out some minute things I don't like in his position changes, but first I need to get his front foot placement really solid on that tape strip before I can start isolating out the other muscle movements I want to fix.

Oh! Makes sense! I thought(almost enviously) it was your basement and if you had another puppy.

ZoeD1217 For whatever reason I'm having trouble getting YouTube to work on my phone. I'll have to jump on later and check these out. I need inspiration....
