Puppy S.T.A.R.

Do you have a new puppy? Start the New Year out with a fun class with you and your new best friend. Mason Dixon Kennel club will be offering our next AKC Puppy S.T.A.R. class Starting January 10th at 6:00. This class is a great place to come and have fun with your puppy and strengthen your bond with them.

From January 10 to February  28 Puppy S.T.A.R. classes will have a flexible enrollment to accommodate more students.  Once you sign up, you will still be able to complete the 6 week course with your puppy.  Please contact the instructor Michele Beatty (Mickenagsd@gmail.com) for more information.

You will be beginning to learn how to teach your puppy how to work with you, not against you. Using clicker training we make it a positive and friendly experience for both of you.

We will be introducing all of the requirements of the AKC S.T.A.R. puppy program. This is a great foundation for moving forward with your puppy’s training.

Puppy training is different from adult training. We’re building a communication system between you and your dog and no two dogs are alike. What works for one pup will not work for another. The class is geared to the unique needs of each puppy/owner team.

Puppies get to experience various surfaces and many different objects that they may encounter in life while in the class.  We work on…

  • Examination by stranger
  • Walk on a loose lead
  • Puppy Down
  • Puppy Sit
  • Puppy Come
  • Puppy Retrieve.
