AKC STAR Puppy Classes

This is a 7-week class for puppies 8 to 18 weeks of age, and pre-registration is required.  Please note that the first class session is orientation, and is just for humans (without their puppies). Puppies MUST be on a vaccination protocol appropriate for their age in order to take part in this class; owners need to provide dated documentation of this from their veterinarian. This class addresses critical periods of behavior, basic manners, socialization, puppy handling, confidence and trust building, bite inhibition, housebreaking, behavior issues, grooming, nutrition, and tricks.  Weekly handouts are provided covering various important topics.
