Oklahoma City S.T.A.R.®

Here at K9 University, we continue to offer the best of the best, proven by offering you the American Kennel Clubs (AKC) sanctioned S.T.A.R. (Socialization, Training, Activity, and Responsibility) training program.  This is an excellent social and training program for puppies as they prepare for their future

The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy® (Socialization, TrainingActivity, and Responsibility) is a fun-filled 6-week program that stresses responsible pet ownership and good basic manners, as well as practical skills for puppies.  AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy provides a good foundation towards earning the Canine Good Citizen title
During this class, you’ll be able to get information on all of your puppy-raising questions including potty training, chewing, mouthing/nipping, and the most effective way to teach practical skills such as coming when called along with responsible pet ownership responsibilities. AKC S.T.A.R. lays a solid foundation for other AKC activities such as the AKC® Canine Good Citizen® Program.
All dogs and owners who pass the 20 step S.T.A.R Puppy test may receive the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Medal in addition to a frameable certificate from the American Kennel Club and you and your puppy will be listed in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Records.  All dog breeds, mixed breeds and pure breeds, are welcome to participate in The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy program. This type of training enhances the bond between the owner and the puppy.

STAR Grad at K9U
According to the AKC guidelines for S.T.A.R., puppy owners will be asked to sign the “Responsible Dog Owners Pledge”. The AKC believes that responsible dog ownership is a key part of the Canine Good Citizen concept and by signing this pledge, owners agree to take care of their dog’s health needs, safety, exercise, training, and overall quality of life.
Owners also agree to show responsibility by doing things such as cleaning up after their dogs in public places and never letting our dogs infringe on others.
No big deal, as all of us do this anyway 🙂
