Don’t stop now! Continue the important and amazing work we did in the first puppy class. Working together we’ll maintain your puppy’s bite inhibition and continue to nurture a well-socialized and friendly dog. And, as your pup’s confidence and skill grows, yours will too! You’ll learn how to proof behaviors without food lures, how to increase distance sits in the yard and at dog parks, and how to settle down (useful when aunt Edna comes to visit and the dog goes bonkers!). This is where it all comes together to create a dog that responds quickly and happily, even amidst distractions or off-leash.
Additionally, when you successfully complete both Puppy 1 and Puppy 2 classes, you’ll get an application to send to the AKC for enrollment in the S.T.A.R. Puppy Program. All dogs are welcome to participate in the program including purebreds and mixed breeds. Your puppy will receive the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Medal and you’ll both be listed in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy records. You’ll also receive the S.T.A.R. Puppy package that includes:
- A beautiful, frameable certificate
- AKC Puppy Handbook
- Discount to enroll in AKC Reunite, a 24-hour recovery service
Are you excited? Let’s do it!
