S.T.A.R. Puppy Class
I do not have any STAR Puppy classes planned at this time. Sorry!
This class is part of the Canine Good Citizen Program offered through the AKC. Only AKC approved evaluators can teach this class and award S.T.A.R. Puppy certifications. For more information on this class and the CGC program, click here.
This is just about the best start you can give yourself and your puppy. I'll set you up for a successful relationship with your canine family member and I'll answer questions and cover many of those obnoxious puppy behaviors. And if that's just not enough for you, watching a group of puppies play together is amazingly fun.
For puppies one year and younger: This class is the puppy version of the Canine Good Citizen. If you attend all 6 classes and complete the requirements, your puppy will receive a S.T.A.R. certification. This class covers beginning obedience cues, socialization, problem behaviors, health and grooming.
Behaviors taught: Food lure, Sit, Stay, Come, Leave-it, Down, Stand, No-reward marker, Release, Off, Socialization, Basic Grooming and General Health.
Problem behaviors covered: Jumping, Chewing, Puppy nipping, Barking, Digging, Running Out the Door, Unruly behavior in the house, Food socialization, and Housebreaking.
