On July 26, 2016 two new puppies became AKC Puppy S.T.A.R.S. at Michigan Dog Training in Plymouth, Michigan.  The Puppy S.T.A.R. program ensures the puppy is free of aggression, the owner is raising their puppy responsibly, they have attended a puppy training class, and measures the pup’s pre-Canine Good Citizen obedience skills. Both pups passed with flying colors.  Congratulations to both:

  1. Angela Kalkofen and her pup Max, a Golden Retriever of Canton, Michigan
  2. Starr Natale and her pup Luna, a Pit mix of Grosse Ile, Michigan.

On October 28, 2014 several puppies earned their American Kennel Club Puppy S.T.A.R. Certificates at Michigan Dog Training in Plymouth, Michigan. To successfully pass the evaluation, puppies have to show good temperament and personality as well as beginning puppy obedience. And, the dog owners demonstrated what it takes to be a responsible dog owner.

A new round of Puppy 1 and Puppy 2 classes start on Tuesday November 11, 2014. Don’t miss the fun, sign up now. You could have a well behaved puppy before the holidays.  Wouldn’t that make your holidays more relaxing?!
