How'd you start OB with your pup?

When I got Isa, it was during school so I didn't have enough time to actually train competition OB until she turned about 8 months. I kind of wished I started from day one, kind of how Brian's daughter did with Raven JR.
How do the more experienced people train there puppies? Do you wait until they are older or start from day one, not formal OB completely but enough to where by the time they hit 6 months they can heel pretty good next to you but it's still choppy. Hopefully that made sense, lol. I was thinking of doing something like this guy does. The final outcome looks nice and although focus to me isn't everything, it looks nice and so does the dog as they aren't crabbing as some methods of focus have.

Akbar 6 years
Isa 10 years
