The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program rewards responsible owners who take the time to train and socialize their new puppies. The program is a natural precursor to the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test. “S.T.A.R.” stands for Socialization, Training, Activity and a Responsible owner, all of the things a puppy needs to have a good life. Classes will include valuable training tips for puppy owners - such as how to house train - and lessons on practical skills for puppies - such as coming when called. The program is open to all dog breeds and mixes. Puppies who have received their second set of shots and are up to 5 months of age when can register, and they can enroll in AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy up until their first birthday. The program runs for 12 weeks, one hour a week. Upon completion your puppy will have been exposed to training through puppy preschool and beginning obedience plus lots of socialization!
