The AKC’s S.T.A.R. Puppy program is a great way to get your new puppy started off right. S.T.A.R. stands for socialization, training, activity, and responsible ownership- all the things you need to set your puppy up for success as they grow into adulthood. A S.T.A.R. Puppy course covers the most important steps to meeting your puppy’s needs and teaching them to be a well-mannered companion. By demonstrating responsible ownership, appropriate behavior for the puppy’s age, and successfully training skills such as sitting, down, and walking on a leash, a puppy can earn the AKC’s S.T.A.R. Puppy Medal. It’s a fun award to show off for all the hard work of raising a great puppy- and often the first of many awards a dog will earn.
