SAN DIEGO PUPPY TRAINING, DAYCARE, GROOMING, AND BOARDING

 

K9 Dog Park Is San Diego's Full-Service Facility for Puppy Care. 

 

Taking your dog to dog training classes isn't only about learning how to train your dog.  Certainly it is that but much more, it also means you will have a happy canine friend who pays attention, walks near you on or off the leash, sits when you ask him to sit, and hangs out politely while you enjoy a meal with your friends. 

What does dog training mean to the dog?  It means he has an enjoyable, interesting life in a home where he understands his role and what he needs to do to keep the good things in life coming!

S.T.A.R. Puppy Dog Training


This training program is for "puppies" that are less than one-year old.  The AKC Socialization Training Activity Responsibility (S.T.A.R.) Puppy Program is designed to get dog owners and their puppies off to a good start. The AKC STAR Puppy Program is an incentive program for loving dog owners who have taken the time to take their puppies through a basic training class.

The Benefits of training classes teach you how to best communicate with your puppy. Organized training classes also provide an opportunity for your dog to socialize with other dogs. In 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 house training, 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.

I like to think of this class as elementary school for puppies and that they will learn how to read, write, and get along with the other kids. 

 

THE COST FOR THE SIX-WEEK S.T.A.R. PUPPY TRAINING WHICH INCLUDES TESTING IS $180.00

If you are ready to embark on this journey with your puppy then please enroll today in our next S.T.A.R. Puppy Class.
