This class is for puppies 8 weeks to 6 months of age. The S.T.A.R. Puppy acronym stands for Socialization, Training, Activity, and Responsibility. This AKC program encourages new dog owners to give their puppies a good start in life. The class curriculum will include the elements required to achieve the AKC S*T*A*R Puppy Award. You will learn through play and positive reinforcement how to communicate with your puppy and teach your puppy how to get along with other dogs and humans. You will learn some basic obedience exercises, build yours and your puppy’s confidence, and improve your bond with your pup. We will also teach basic doggy care and safety. This class will introduce you to some of the Canine Good Citizen components so you are ready to move onto the next course, CGC.
All puppy and handler teams who finish this class will have the opportunity to take the S.T.A.R. Puppy final evaluation. Owner and puppy must attend a minimum of six classes to qualify for the award and successfully complete the twenty items on the evaluation. Upon passing the evaluation, you will receive an AKC form that you may send to AKC for the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy “Packet”, which includes a medal, certificate of completion, and informational resources.
