Go beyond your typical “Big Chain” puppy class with our AKC Star Puppy curriculum. Our certified puppy training classes teach you how to best communicate with your puppy in a positive fun way, and organized social hours provide an opportunity for your dog to socialize with other dogs outside of the group class environment. Our classes are aimed at earning the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Certification (Those with AKC registration will earn a Title). During the class, 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 Sit, Down, Place, Stand, Come and walking on a leash. We will also work on increasing attention, focus and duration (Impulse control for dogs). AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy training is a natural lead in to our Basic Obedience and the AKC® Canine Good Citizen® Program.
