Desert Dogs Canine Training and Behavior Modification, LLC trains under the requirements of the AKC's S.T.A.R. Puppy Program. Our training classes teach you how to best communicate with your puppy. These organized training classes also provide an opportunity for your dog to socialize with other dogs. In these classes aimed at earning the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy distinction, you'll be able to get information on all of your puppy-raising questions including housetraining, chewing, and the most effective way to teach practical skills such as coming when called. AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy training is a natural lead in to the AKC Canine Good Citizen Program.
Once your puppy has successfully completed all 6 classes, your puppy will receive the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Medal. You and your puppy will be listed in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy records. In addition, so that you can continue learning, you'll receive our AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy package that includes:
-A beautiful, frameable certificate designating your puppy is in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy records at AKC
-AKC Puppy Handbook, a valuable resource
-Discount to enroll in AKC Companion Animal Recovery Corporation, a 24-hour recovery service
-Ongoing Monthly Email Newsletter: Your AKC. This includes training tips and up-to-date information every dog owner needs to know. We want you and your puppy to continue learning beyond puppy classes.
Training begins the day you bring your puppy home. While raising a puppy is a joy, it is a responsibility as well. It is easier to prevent unwanted behavior than to break bad habits later on. Between 7 and 16 weeks of age, puppies develop their understanding of the world around them. This is when they are most impressionable. Start your relationship now and get on a road that will lead you and your puppy into a lifetime of positive experiences.
