first few days, walking puppy around the garden, yes or no??

i am getting my new puppy in less a few days, and i was wondering.....
you should take it on a proper walk about a week after you get it, but is walking around the garden okay as a starter. I have quite a big garden, would this be good for the first few days/or week. I will start to do heel work and stuff early on, and is practising in the garden good or not??

thanks for any help/advice

yupp, i think a walk around your garden..nothing too intense..lots of playing, lots and lots of training. practising heel in the garden is a great idea gets her used to listening to you outside, which is very important.
