How's my boy looking? Video included

Leo is now 15 weeks old and 34 lbs. Below is a video of me playing with him with the flirt pole. How's his stride and size looking? Anything else? We've done some basic obedience but that's it so far. Just letting him be a puppy. Thinking of starting IPO with him once he hits 6 months or so. Let me know what you think!

Another way to use the flirt pole is what we did at Puppy School.

The instructor lets us hold the puppy with a leash while he holds the flirt pole in front of the puppy. The puppy tugs at the rag. When he is focused on the rag, you release the puppy from the rag. The instructor walks away a couple of meters and you then release the puppy. The puppy then runs to the flirt pole rag, jumps at it, and bites into it.

This exercise evolves into training with the older dogs where the dog is released and charges at the instructor with a bite sleeve on his arm.
