The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program was developed by the American Kennel Club to help puppy owners, instructors, breeders, shelter staff and other canine professionals understand and meet the needs of a remarkable, extraordinary creature — the puppy. S.T.A.R. stands for Socialization, Training, Activity and a Responsible owner, everything a puppy needs to have a good life. Puppy owners and their dogs (up to one year old) attend a puppy class for at least 8 eight weeks. You’ll go to class once a week for about an hour, and in between classes, practice with your puppy at home. In the last class, your instructor will administer the twenty item non-competitive AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy evaluation. Upon graduation/completion of paperwork you will receive a Gold AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Medal.
