Puppy/Small Breed Group Class

AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Canine Good Citizen

S.T.A.R. Puppy Good Citizen is an excellent first in-person training class for puppies!

About this class

This is an exciting program designed to get dog owners and their puppies off to a good start. The S.T.A.R. Puppy Training classes teach you how to best communicate with your puppy and provide an opportunity for your dog to socialize with other dogs.
In this 6-week class series aimed at earning the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy distinction, you’ll be able to get information on all your puppy-raising questions including housetraining, chewing, and the most effective way to teach practical skills such as:
  • Sitting politely for petting
  • Sit & down on command
  • Staying in place
  • Loose leash training
  • Recall
  • Accepting a friendly stranger
  • Walking through a crowd
  • Reaction to other dogs
  • Distractions
For dogs 12 months old or younger
