Allow us to help you ensure your puppy is well mannered, confident, and socially adept. This class follows the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Class curriculum. Topics covered will include potty training, socialization and confidence-building exercises, as well as beginning to lay the basic foundations for obedience. Upon completion of the 6-week class, you'll have the opportunity to take the "AKC STAR Puppy Test" - should you choose -  so that your pet can be awarded a STAR Puppy medal. Whether your goal is gold medals or simply to start your puppy off on the right paw, this is the class for you. Once your puppy graduates from Rover Oaks Puppy Class, they can continue their training in our Good Dog Manners class!
