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.

      Sending good wishes for a speedy recovery for Korra. Hope she will make it back on Sept. 4. There will be a makeup class on Sept. 11, so she and Teresa can still make the 6 required classes.

    I was so happy to see Hannah so much calmer with the other dogs, and she could focus on doing what was asked. Even though I could not walk and heel her, it was enjoyable to observe for once and see all the dogs performing their tasks. I will miss not being in class next week for the #5 class, but am so fortunate and happy there is a make up session. Hannah still gets very excited to see other dogs, but will now listen and calm down. I now look forward to taking other training sessions also, like the CGC, then maybe on to agility..... it is fun, and was really good to talk with some of the other members. Thank you for your help! Also, when people come to the house, I put on her lease like you said, and make her sit and stay to calm down, then they can give her a pet. Thank you for that suggestion, it works great!! :-)
