We started with Puppy Play sessions, where pups play and socialize, then moved on to Puppy Kindergarten class, then to Level 1 Beginning Obedience, and now we are doing Continuing Obedience classes with a behaviorist/trainer once a week.
Even with all these classes and practice at home, I still have problems with Riley wanting to pull when we do walks, jumping up on people with greetings, and now that it is fall, totally losing his mind when we see squirrels or large birds on walks. Whew, it's been a lot of work and will continue to be. He is a very confident, extroverted, energetic little guy and he has a strong personality. Training classes were/are a must for me!
