AKC Certification Preparation

Puppy Training Day School Program to prepare for the AKC STAR Puppy Program.

Our Puppy School Program is designed to be force-free, positive reinforcement based learning. In 12 weeks, puppies will learn basic commands, obedience, impulse control, recall and on-leash walking. You and your puppy will have the attention of a certified dog trainer and AKC Certified Evaluator, they will be supervised, exercised and socialized while learning foundational skills with other dogs and puppies.

Training and socialization for young puppies is critical for their healthy development. Canine High School is the only local training school for puppies in Long Beach that routinely visits public access spaces throughout our beautiful city. Your puppy will learn to walk on-leash at the park, at the mall, at the beach and in many different environments that will equip your pup with everything they need to be a confident, relaxed, and well-mannered dog that you’ll be proud to take anywhere. 

You will receive daily updates with videos and pictures, and weekly progress reports to track your pup's progress. Parents will also have access to our weekly in-person AKC Certification Exam Preparation Group Classes and access to our Online Library of self-study materials. We will transfer the knowledge to you so that you can keep up and maintain the progress that we make. When your pup graduates, you will receive a graduation certificate, and will be offered the AKC examination at no cost to you.

k9hs puppy School Details

AKC Certification Preparation

Puppy Training Day School Program to prepare for the AKC STAR Puppy Program.

1. We conduct a Call with Admissions to create your account and fill out paperwork. Then we schedule an Admissions Interview with our head trainer (no-contact, outdoors) before scheduling your first day of service and buying your Pricing Plan.

 

2. You purchase your Pricing Plan and use our Book Online system to schedule which days you want your dog to go to school each week. You also schedule FREE AKC Certification Exam Preparation Group Classes in-person (no-contact, outdoors). And you can use the same convenient system to reschedule or cancel any days. 

3. We pick up your puppy during our route from 9-11am and drop them off between 3-5pm. Pick-up and drop-off  is no-contact and outdoors in front of your home, or we can also pick up from your backyard. If you are not home, we ask that you leave your pup as close to the entrance as possible and we use a lock-box to come in and out without contact. 

 

4. We will be working with your pups for at least 4 solid hours of pack walks, dog sports, and water breaks in between, as we work to increase their attention span. We will send you picture updates during the day and weekly report cards and badges until graduation 12 weeks later. Please do not overfeed them before school or they might get car-sick and be disinterested in training.

 

5. You do not need to provide the treats, but you can if you want to. Please also let us know if there are any food allergies or restrictions. We use freeze dried beef livers because they are high reward and have no additives. We buy US made only. Please do not send expensive leashes or things that you do not want to be chewed up while we are driving. But yes, you can pack lunch for them and send your dog or puppy’s favorite blanket and toys if you like.
