Default Agility Foundations

When is a good time to start foundations for agility?

I've still yet to decide on a facility to go to and Talon is still way too young, working on basics still. But when is a good time to start a foundations class?

Are there things I can work on that isn't your basic dog behavior (sit, down, stay, leave it, etc) to make it an easier transition?

I was thinking of perch work or getting a wobbly ball to work on his balance. His puppy socialization class has introduced him briefly to tunnels, the stay table, and boards (on the ground, with different textures to each). He did great with all of them, but then they had a "wobbly board" and he wouldn't have anything to do with that one lol

So yeah, just thought I'd see if there was anything specific I should work on to help him along?
