Get your puppy off to a great start!
S.T.A.R. Puppy class
For Puppies up to 6 Months
The Berks Dog Training Club S.T.A.R. Puppy Program follows the program designed by the American Kennel Club to get dog owners and their puppies off to a good start. Upon completion an AKC certificate is available for purchase through their organization.
S.T.A.R. stands for Socialization, Training, Activity and a Responsible owner, everything a puppy needs to have a good life. The class supports the puppy’s appropriate development through structured socialization, teaching the puppy the vocabulary of learning, guided activities, and educating you to become a responsible dog owner.
A typical class is a combination of activities, such as learning to SIT, WALK on a leash, DOWN, COME when called, structured play interaction with toys/handler, and some “at rest” time for the puppies while the owners are covering essential topics in the curriculum including housetraining, chewing, and the most effective teaching strategies for the puppy.
This class is for both pure and mixed breed puppies 8 weeks to 6 months. Class size is limited to 8 puppies. S.T.A.R. puppies then continue on to the Basic Skills Class, included in the fee. $140 which includes 6 weeks of puppy class, 8 weeks of basic skills, plus the balance of the year as a member including weekly member training and more. There is a $2 on line administration fee.
