There are many things that go into ensuring a puppy gets a good start in life and is set up to succeed from the beginning. The STAR Puppy test covers many of those items. A puppy needs many socialization opportunities. One of the best ways to get a jump on socialization is to attend a good puppy class.
STAR stands for Socialization, Training, Activity, Responsibility. The program is designed to get the puppies started right. Upon completion of the STAR Puppy test the completed evaluation form is provided to the owner. The completed form is submitted to the American Kennel Club by the owner to receive the AKC STAR Puppy medal and STAR Puppy packet.
Puppy and owner must attend at least 6 classes taught by an approved AKC CGC Evaluator. Our instructors are approved AKC CGC Evaluators. If you would like to have your puppy evaluated please let you instructor know so the paperwork is ready for you on graduation / evaluation day.
