Welcome to the forum! I also demand pictures of your puppy. Rotties are my favorite breed!
Follow Rains recommendation. You'll find lots of good advice in the training section and more people will read and answer posts in the training section than in the introductions
P.s. I have taught my dog to retrieve with a retriever bag where you can put food or treats in it. First I attached the bag to a string, then had her sit next to me, opened the bag and fed her a couple of treats. Repeated that a couple of times. Then threw it 1 m away from me slowly pulling it back - opened the bag, fed her treats and so forth. I repeated it a couple of times and she quickly realized: bag in my hand = food! Then I introduced a command (bring it) for retrieval and so forth. It's a great way to play and bond with your dog while mentally working it's brain and you can feed an entire breakfast or/and dinner with it. you can also hide it and make your dog find it and retrieve it to you.
