It’s exciting bringing a new puppy into your life.

Your new puppy now depends on you for everything – food, water, exercise,  training, good health and hygiene practices and above all, lots of love and attention.

The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program rewards responsible owners who take the time to train and socialize their new puppies.

“The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program also provides dog owners with the tools they need to raise and train their dog responsibly and prepare their puppy to become an AKC Canine Good Citizen,” said Dr. Mary Burch, AKC CGC Director.

“S.T.A.R.” stands for

S ocialization
T raining
A ctivity
R esponsible owner

… these are all of the things a puppy needs to have a good life.

To get started, owners enroll in any puppy or basic training class that is at least six weeks long and instructed by an AKC Approved CGC Evaluator. Classes will include valuable training tips for puppy owners – such as:

  • how to housetrain your puppy
  • lessons on practical skills for puppies -such as coming when called

The program is open to all dogs.

Puppies can begin training as soon as they have the necessary vaccines and they can enroll in AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy at any point up until their first birthday.
