Another class video for you this week with our awesome founder, Aschley. This video gives a rundown of what we go over in our AKC Puppy Star Class.
So what is the AKC Puppy Star Class and what are the benefits of enrolling? AKC stands for American Kennel Club and here is what they have to say about the Puppy Star Class or program;
THE BENEFITS OF TRAINING
Training classes teach you how to best communicate with your puppy. Organized training classes also provide an opportunity for your dog to socialize with other dogs. In classes aimed at earning the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy distinction, you’ll be able to get information on all of your puppy-raising questions including housetraining, chewing, and the most effective way to teach practical skills such as coming when called. AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy training is a natural lead into the AKC® Canine Good Citizen® Program.
HOW IT WORKS
When you complete a basic training class (taught by an AKC Approved CGC Evaluator) with your puppy (up to 1 year old) your puppy is eligible to be enrolled in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program.
You’ll attend any puppy or basic training class at least 6 weeks. Your instructor will administer the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy test at the end of the course. Upon passing the test, you’ll get an application to send to AKC® for enrollment in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program. All dogs are welcome to participate in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program including purebreds and mixed breeds.
Your puppy will receive the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Medal (for display or memento purposes; not suitable as a collar tag). You and your puppy will be listed in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy records. In addition, so that you can continue learning, you’ll receive our AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy package that includes:
– A beautiful, frameable certificate designating your puppy is in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy records at AKC
– AKC Puppy Handbook, a valuable resource
– Ongoing Monthly Email Newsletter: Your AKC. This includes training tips and up-to-date information every dog owner needs to know. We want you and your puppy to continue learning beyond puppy classes.
Give us a call today to get your dog into one of our classes. It’s great bonding for you and them and it’s a great place for them and yourself to make some new friends. This class is only available at the Naples location.
