When to start training?

Hi All!
I am new to the list- I have a just 4 month old girl Basset named Miz RubyRue. Since I am NOT a Basset "slave" but an owner & have always had well behaved dogs I wondered when I could start & HOW I should start with Miz Ruby. She is doing very well on basic manners- housetraining, no biting, staying down, not rushing the door etc. I think she has a terrier mind in that Basset body & if I don't keep her busy she will find something to do & it is always trouble... I would love to do rally or obedience. I know she is probably too young to start officially but what can I do that is fun for her & will help her get ready?

Thanks- I found it! :p "Building Blocks For Performance"- It looks great & will give us some fun stuff to do-
Miz Ruby & I are goin to Petsmart tonight for a new collar (she is growing like a weed!) and we will sign up for a puppy class-
:) :D :idea:
Thanks! lucky for us Ruby & I ran into a Bassett & person when we were at Petsmart who were doing obedience & told us that the next town over's Rec Dept had obedience & rally training! Basset folks seem to be so nice & HELPFUL! :D
