How does the program work?
Owners take their puppies to a 5 weeks long training class taught by an AKC Approved CGC Evaluator (Janet) and graduates. You must attend all 5 classes. AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy is open to purebred and mixed breed dogs and the program defines ‘puppy’ as a dog up to the age of 1 year old. There is an additional $20.00 charge to enroll in this program and receive the testing. This can be paid at class by check or cash. This program will give you the skills needed to give puppies a good foundation for CGC training that will come later.

Puppy test during the 5 week class. After passing all 20 items in the test, the owners will be given the paperwork at the last class to enroll in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy program. The owner sends the paperwork and $10.00 to AKC.
