Dont know how young your pup is but you can always start playing fetch with him so he/she can start learning retrieves. But keep it fun with absolutely no pressure.

One of mine is about the same age. I reinforce the basics inside and get him doing them to the whistle inside as well. I think that's important because all of the advanced stuff is dependent upon execution of the basics. On days when it's not frigid, I do his exercises outside and take him for walks behind my house. I hide the wings before the walk and mark where they're located and he finds them. Maybe something like that would work for you.

And I am going to petco with her to get her used to people and working on the learned commands with distractions.

At her age she cannot fall behind. Though winter time is tough on newbies, pups and owners.
Personally depending the facilities you have available pole barn space basement space an area say 10X20 I would place board train her. This is a real good time of year to teach her the Here command and the Stand for examination command. This not whoa breaking,though it could a precursor to actual whoa breaking Personally I have never taught a pointing dog the Sit command.
So by the time you perfect the Here, and Stand stay, along with some play retrieveing with different objects of the place board it will be late March early April and you will be to get here back out in the field.
You and her will have spent a great winter learning and becoming a working team.
The worse thing you can do is nothing, use this so called down time to yours and her advantage
