Puppies thrive on learning, so a positive reinforcement based obedience class is a great opportunity to get your puppy out and learning new skills.
There is a lot of work to be done at home when you take an obedience class, but having a trainer to explain and troubleshoot is a big help!
I would not recommend a force or punishment based obedience class for a puppy.
You want your puppy engaged and willing to learn, and punishment shuts down behavior.
