The AKC S.T.A.R (Socialization, Training, Activity, & Responsibility) Puppy course is designed for all dogs ten weeks old and older.
The course length will consist of a total of six classes (one day each week). Class size will be limited to a maximum enrollment of ten dogs per class.
Basic commands taught include:
We will also work on solving behavioral challenges such as:
Positive interaction and games will be utilized to increase the socialization skills of your dog, as well.
AKC Canine Good Citizen Novice Class - $110
This Six-week course was designed to teach more advanced commands. We will work to refine the skills learned by graduates of the basic course. The goal of this class is to work toward the Canine Good Citizen Certification.
AKC Community Canine Good Citizen Advanced Class - $110
The goal of the AKC Community Canine advanced class is to test the dog's skills in a natural setting. For example, rather than the dog being tested in a ring, in the AKC Community Canine class, the “walks through a crowd” test item will involve the dog walking through real-life situations, such as a real crowd at a dog show, on a busy sidewalk, at a training club, or in a local park. The goal of this class is to work to achieve the Community Canine Good Citizen Certification.
AKC Canine Good Citizen Certifications - $25
This certification program tests dogs in simulated everyday situations in a relaxed, non-competitive atmosphere.
The CGC program rewards dogs that have the training demeanor to be a reliable family member, as well as community member in good standing.
