S.T.A.R. Puppy

Border collie puppy with toyThe AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program is an incentive program for dog owners who have  taken their puppies through a basic training class.

The S.T.A.R. Puppy Program is described fully on the AKC website.

In classes aimed at earning the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy distinction, you’ll receive 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.

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.

On the last week of this class, 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.
