AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Class and Certification Testing AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy

Our regular Puppy CLASS includes AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy exercises, and much, much more. The AKC S.T.A.R. Certification program requires that we document passage of AKC specific exercises, and weekly requirments, in order to complete the Certification paperwork. ANY puppy is eligible for this program (not just pure-breeds).

The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy is an exciting new program designed to get dog owners and their puppies off to a good start. The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program is an incentive program for loving dog owners who have taken the time to take their puppies through a basic training class. (PDF Brochure AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program.

The Benefits of Training

S.T.A.R. Puppy

Training classes teach you how to best communicate with your puppy. Organized training classes also provide an opportunity for your dog to socialize with other dogs. In classes aimed at earning the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy distinction, you’ll be able to get information on all of your puppy-raising questions including housetraining, chewing, and the most effective way to teach practical skills such as coming when called. AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy training is a natural lead in to the AKC® Canine Good Citizen® Program.

How It Works

When you complete a basic training class (taught by an AKC Approved CGC Evaluator) with your puppy (up to 1 year old) your puppy is eligible to be enrolled in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program.

You’ll attend any puppy or basic training class at least 6 weeks. Your instructor will administer the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy test at the end of the course. Upon passing the test (20 items), you’ll get an application to send to AKC® for enrollment in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program. All dogs are welcome to participate in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program including purebreds and mixed breeds.

Your puppy will receive the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Medal (for display or memento purposes; not suitable as a collar tag). You and your puppy will be listed in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy records. In addition, so that you can continue learning, you’ll receive our AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy package that includes:

  • A beautiful, frameable certificate designating your puppy is in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy records at AKC
  • AKC Puppy Handbook, a valuable resource
  • Ongoing Monthly Email Newsletter: Your AKC. This includes training tips and up-to-date information every dog owner needs to know. We want you and your puppy to continue learning beyond puppy classes.
  • (from AKC S.T.A.R Puppy Program website)

Instructor is AKC Approved CGC Instructor/Evaluator for S.T.A.R. Puppy Class/test, All CGC tests, and Trick Dog tests.

Cost: Test and Certification documentation, $15 for Puppy CLASS students, and must be requested at time of Registration for Puppy CLASS, or Well Behaved Dog Class.

*********************************************************************

AKC Trick Dog Class, with Certification Testing

Trick Dog CLASS For FUN, Mental and Physical Exercise, and improvement of Dog/Handler Communication and Cooperation!

"Tricks are simply behaviors, and learning these behaviors puts the dog in a learning-to-learn mode. Tricks are behaviors that can be done for entertainment such as “say your prayers,” physical activity (such as weave poles or spin), or as useful practical skills (e.g., “paws up” so the dog stands with front paws on a stool to raise his head for petting by a patient in a hospital bed).

What I like about trick training is that it will make a trainer out of a beginning trainer. Correctly using the behavioral principles of shaping, chaining and reinforcement will be required of the successful trick dog trainer. I like the fact that trick dog training requires the handler and dog to work together as a team. Pushing, shoving and pulling the dog into position don’t work in trick dog training."
...

"Trick dog training often involves the dog getting physical exercise. Dogs get a lot of mental exercise from tricks as well. After a trip outside for physical exercise and a tricks training session, dogs who once looked for way to get in trouble when left alone may be happy to climb on the couch and take a nap."

Vaccinations:

Proof of vaccination/titers/veterinary recommendation-must be shown at Registration. A copy may be faxed to us at 907-789-WOOF (9663) or emailed to info@caninesunlimited.com.

For further information on the vaccination issue see these related links:

Puppy Vaccination and Early Socialization:

The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior believes puppies should start puppy socialization and classes BEFORE they are fully vaccinatted. See their statement HERE.


" Please remember that the risk of a dog dying (euthanasia) because of behavior problems is more than 1,000 times the risk of dying of distemper or parvo virus. Early learning, socialization of puppies and appropriate vaccination should go together in a wellness program designed to protect lives of dogs and improve the bond with families".-Robert K. Anderson DVM, MPH, DACVPM and DACVB

Testimonials

"I am so happy that we found your class. You have a heart of gold and really care about not just the dogs but us untrained people as well. My husband Larry was very impressed with class last week and was able to see in action what we are working on so he can follow suit." Denise Van Der Pol, Juneau

"I'm really happy with everything she has learned so far and I enjoy learning from you! ...going to your class has made life much easier. I have some friends who recently got a yellow lab pup and I highly recommended your class to them. It's really helpful to learn how to mentally connect with the dog and cooperate with them. I'm able to keep her healing at my side without a leash for miles! Thanks again!" - K.S., Juneau


Rating our classes as "Excellent", Sabrina Nelson said the greatest benefit of our training was "that the dog listens and obeys commands."

Lorraine Stickel found our class "Excellent", really liked the Flexible format and appreciated the numerous alternative techniques we offered, to resolving issues. "Keep up the individual dog answers to problems!"

TESTIMONIAL: "
Lily’s story:  Before my person took the Calm Canine class with me, trimming my nails was a challenge.  I would keep pulling my paws back and resist.  She would trim a few nails at a session.  In the course of a few days, she would have all my nails trimmed.  After taking the class, she has a calmer energy.  This makes me feel more calm too.  She just trimmed all my nails in one session.  By the time she got two paws done, I just laid my head down and let her finish the rest with little or no resistance from me.  I still don’t like it very much, but I don’t feel the need to get anxious about it now.  Thanks, Canines Unlimited!”

TESTIMONIALS:
"I just want to say thank you for the class.  Lloyd and I took away a lot of useful tools for Wyatt and ourselves.  I will keep in touch as I would like to explore more tools to help with his excitement and what seems to be separation anxiety. Thank you again!!" -Clinton Lasley
