Welcome to the AKC S.T.A.R Puppy Program! Ruffgers is proud to be a part of this exciting program designed to get dog owners and their puppies off to a good start. This is a six week training program that will teach you how to better communicate with your puppy. You will be able to get information on all of your puppy raising questions including house training, chewing, nutrition, and much more! You will learn the most effective ways to teach practical skills such as coming when called, loose leash walking, crate games, focus exercises, sending to a bed, touch sensitivity, meet and greet, and will experience an introduction to new surfaces and enrichment activities! The AKC S.T.A.R Puppy training is a natural lead into our Pet Manners 101, Pet Manners 201, Outdoor Pet Manners and also the Canine Good Citizen program. We also offer puppy agility which can be a fun and confidence building activity!
