I would wait until 10-11 weeks for puppy class.

ask around your neighbors and coworkers for training facility recommendations. Venus and Otto were both at or under 10 weeks when they started. Being a german shepherd, she'll probably get a pass for being more mature at 10 weeks than other breeds at 3 months.
For now, don't worry about training. Worry about potty and teaching her bite inhibition - they learn a lot about social hierarchy and test their limits at the age she's at now. Usually they're still with their litter learning this stuff.

When to start puppy training
hey there i have a 5 week old gs pup, i try to teach her a few things, she seems to have potty training down for the most part but she does have small accidents here and there. i try to teach her the sit and come command but it seems like she is always focused on playing. im wondering is it because shes a lil pup or not, i always thought the earlier the better. so when is a good time to start training or maybe i am doing something wrong?
