The  AKC  Star Puppy  class   is  a basic  obedience  class  designed  for  puppies 4 months to 1 year of age. We will teach mat  training, sits, downs, stays, settle, come, heeling on lead and many other behaviors.  Controlled socialization without aggression or fear around other puppies and other humans is a large part of this class, too.  KCA only supports positive reinforcement training in all their classes.

All puppies  must  have  proof of their completed  vaccinations.  Please  bring  a  hard copy  to class to be attached to your registration form. If you attend all 6 classes, I will test your team and if you pass, you can apply for an AKC S.T.A.R. PUPPY CERTIFICATE and a really nice medallion.

The  class  is  six   sessions  with a  $60.00  donation to  Kern Canine Activities. If  you  are  not  a  KCA  member  it  will be  $80.00  which  will pay  for  your  membership for  a  year, until June 30, 2014.

You will need to  bring a flat fabric collar (buckle or snap),  or  harness, a six  foot  leash, water  for you and your puppy,  a  mat  or  small piece  of  carpet (approximately 18" x 30") and  lots  of  small soft treats & a puppy  toy  for  your  dog.  Only one puppy per one handler.

**To hold this class, it is necessary for a minimum of 4 puppies to sign up.  The class is limited to 10 teams and usually fills up fast.

    Many Kudos to this class. All the puppies improved in just one week. All sit and down and I was so pleased to see you had practiced your attention exercise. It was so great that all the puppies accepted being greeted by Dawn and myself. Keep up the wood practice. This week's homework, the "stay" exercise and the "touch" attention exercise.
