S.T.A.R. stands for Socialization, Training, Activity, and Responsible owner!

This class is designed to get owners and puppies off to a great start and build the foundations for a lasting relationship. In class, we will address common puppy problems like potty training and mouthing. Puppies will have opportunities to participate in confidence building socialization activities and will engage in appropriate puppy play. Owners will learn techniques to elicit engagement and attention from their puppies that will help them focus and learn. Basic manners and desired behaviors will be taught utilizing positive reinforcement techniques and games. Puppies will learn the foundations for sit, down, relaxing on a mat, come, stay, loose leash walking, and more.

At the end of the 6-week class puppies will participate in an exam and successful teams will graduate from the AKC STAR Puppy Program.
