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. At the end of the 6 week class your instructor will administer the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy test.

Upon passing the test, you’ll get an application to send to AKC® for enrollment in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program and receive the AKC S.T.A.R PUPPY MEDAL. All dogs are welcome to participate in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program including purebreds and mixed breeds. Handlers must be at least 12 years old.

Student ReviewI have great memories of our training in Ferndale back in 1996. We had only two classes, but our dog was nicely behaved for a lifetime. We lived in Royal Oak at the time, but have since moved to the east side of Troy, so even your location change works better for us. See you soon!

NOTE: If you have a dog that is aggressive around other dogs or people, please speak with the Training Director or Training Secretary before enrolling.
