firstly congrats on your new pup, they are alot of fun aren't they?. I would suggest signing up for puppy class to start him off with socialization. Also there are some youtube videos you can use like this one for instance, if you go on her page she has lists of videos for some training ideas

YouTube - kikopup's Channel

and also some of the tricks and training tips from hunkymonkeykaine, she does clicker training

I also have some of leerburg's puppy vdeos i have your puppy from 8 weeks to 8 months, basic obedience and establishing pack structure with the family pet vidos. He has lots of great ideas but i don't use all of his training techniques. Leerburg's ideas and along with a few others i've seen from youtube helped with the training process. Going to puppy class will help you get started as well!. Good luck .

Since your puppy is brand new work on your bonding time and keep training sessions short and fun . There are also lots of books on how to train a puppy too. To name a few i have one called culture clash and other end of the leash. Loved dog by Tamar Gellar and The power of positive dog training Pat Miller.

The MOST important thing for a new puppy is crate training, socialization, exercise and LOVE !!!!!! That's socialization, exercise and LOVE in the home as well as at your friends/neighbors and in the world beyond!

I personally do love clicker training. All positive, keeping training sessions super short for a puppy, and then go on with the rest of the day...
