What kind of training? Basic obedience for a family companion, or competing in some venue? An adult dog, or raising a puppy?

Ah, then this is what you need: Dog Star Daily

If you click on the Training Textbook link at the top of the page there is tons of great info about raising a puppy.

Your pup sounds like the perfect age for you to find a great puppy class for basic beginner training and the even MORE important socialization.

Any clicker classes are perfect for puppies.

I highly recommend you enroll in a "puppy kindergarten" type class as soon as you can. There is a critical socialization period between 8-12 weeks old and you want to get the proper socialization done at this time.

Here is a link with good info on critical socialization periods and what you should do during them:
How to socialize


Here is a good link to articles about puppy training (scroll down to 'puppies'):
