If your goal is IPO, have you not joined a club already? The usual way is to join a club as soon as you get your puppy, and follow the club's training protocol.
I would not do any training at all without the guidance of other experienced IPO people. You may inadvertently train bad habits that will become your dog's foundation that could be very difficult to undo at a later date. I've seen many people on this forum start tug work on their own with the idea that they will be ahead of the game once they join a club, but they are teaching their dog to be hectic and to bite shallow due to a lack of experience.
There are as many ways to train and start a puppy as there are trainers. Pick one club or trainer and stick with it, or you will only confuse yourself and your pup.
