How soon can you start obedience classes?

I want my pup to know commands and listen, so I've been trying to do basic commands but it seems like he doesn't know or understand the words I'm saying. Nothing I do stop his behavior. When I stand up he run and hides. I don't like that. He needs to know that I'm safe...
So how soon should obedience classes start. I don't want to waste time and money of he won't remember later..

How old? I wouldn't recommend a pet store trainer. You first need to work on bonding, you may not know what he has been through prior to you getting him. Look for a trainer that believes in positive reinforcement (not "No means no"). Hand feed your pup, positive play, snuggle. Find something that is high value to him. Use that as your reward. Check out some positive training videos on u-tube. Sit, stay, come, leave it,drop it. Read up on NILIF. It takes time and constant work. My boy is 3 and we still work on commands, keeping him fresh, it's not like training to him. It's playtime with mom. A pup has a short attention span so keep it in 5 minute intervals, change up on the commands. He will catch on as long as you are consistent with the command. I use verbal and sign at the same time. This way my boy knows to follow my directive and not someone else's.

Camo our rescue pup is 7 1/2 weeks old tomorrow and we started last week. He will sit, come, outside, and inside on command about 90% now. The other 10% is lost to puppy energy, at which point we just play until he tires out, then curl up and watch TV as a family with my wife and son.

It is never too early to start basic obedience. If they can walk and eat solid food, they can learn from people.

As far as obedience classes go, unless you are paying for private lessons, most require a pup to be 16 weeks and fully vaccinated.

I just don't know how to tell if he's ready. Right now we are just figuring out potty training and his crate. He still has no concept of basic commands.
