Well I'm a little behind since she's been sick with a tummy issue for a week or so I haven't been able to give her treats :[
Sit, down, wait, paw, crawl, touch (touches fingers with nose, kinda my recall), up (puts front paws on a surface and stands there), speak, doesn't chew things in my house, doesn't pull too bad on a leash, and is potty trained and will pee when I tell her to go potty. She's kinda spotty on leave it.
We're working on dog aggression on a leash though. She barks like a madwoman recently every time a dog walks by, ugh. Bunch of petsmart socialization trips in store for us.

my pup was in a puppy class at 10 weeks old. it was more
socializing oriented. OB classes started at 4 months old.
from 10 weeks to 4 months old he didn't know much.
he knew "no", "come", didn't pull when leashed and he
was house trained. when OB classes started things took off.

Come, sit, down, leave it, spin, heel, paw(s), house trained, he goes away, and lays down when we eat.
There's a couple more. But I forget. He's 14 weeks today. We train three times a day, at 5-10 minutes.
Also during walks we stop for some sit, down sessions.

Expecting young puppies to know all these commands is ok but please, do NOT expect them to perform them 100% of the time - every time.

They are much too young to follow commands around distractions. It would be like expecting a first grader to be able to recite the alphabet on the playground with other kids running and playing.

I've been wondering about this. How much is too much? When should I start serious training? 5 months?

Oh of course not.
I practice commands around distractions but I know she's a baby and I don't scold her for not doing them or anything, I'm happy that she does them at home or during play sessions and at puppy class :]

Sit, down, come, off, paw, around (spin) were his consistant ones at that age
