I am proud to announce that Echo passed his AKC STAR puppy test yesterday! The STAR puppy test covers basic owner and pet behaviors, such as vet care, exercise, and commands like sit, come, and down. There are 20 different criterias you and your puppy must meet to pass. These criteria can be found on the AKC website.
Echo took his puppy class with Sit Happens in Athens, Georgia over the spring and completed a basic/ intermediate course through private lessons over the summer. He is now starting an Advanced Obedience class and will be preparing to take the Canine Good Citizen test.
What do you do for fun with your dogs? Have you tried enrolling in a local obedience class?
Thanks for reading,
Katie, Gracie, and Echo
