Start looking at clubs. I see you are in CA, but what part? CA is split into a couple of regions.
You can start imprinting puppies in OB and tracking at 8 weeks (I started my current pup, from my own litter, at 6 weeks). I don't do much with my pups in protection/rag work until they are older. Maybe some rag work a couple of times, but that is about it. That is just me. I am working a 3 month old pup right now. She visits a little, is doing short tracks with 1 corner, has started heeling, is doing fronts, restrained recalls, sit, down, stand, some shaping work and focus in both the front and basic positions. I also play ball with her at other times and she hangs out with some of my big dogs, is in a KPT class and does a little intro to agility. They are like sponges at this age.
But, find a good club to help guide you.
