On Line Learning
At DogStar Training NJ we now offer On-line learning under two formats
> You can choose from our Basic Programs which are live face-to-face sessions via Zoom or Facebook Portal
> Our Self-paces specialty programs via Google Classroom lets you work towards other titles or certifications and then arrange a final evaluation at one of our training locations.
Our Basic Programs:
Puppy Bright Start and Polite Pet I can be done from home with a weekly 45 minute face-to-face session with the trainer.
You will learn all the same material as in our class setting with handouts and access to additional instruction video links that will be sent to you as the material is covered.
You can then join us in the training center for the second level classes:
Puppy Next Step and Polite Pet II and earn your first AKC title AKC Canine Good Citizen
This is a self-paced program. Once you register for the class you will be invited to Google Classroom to view the program in a series of slides with video demonstrations of the various skills you and your dog will need to successfully pass the evaluation for certification as a Bright & Beautiful Therapy Dog.
You will be required to submit videos of the skills and when you are ready you will be able to attend a 60-90 workshop to address the medical equipment and therapy dog to therapy dog piece.
At this time you will be able to take the evaluation.
AKC Trick Dog Titles
AKC offers Trick Dog Titles for 4 levels from Novice, Intermediate, Advanced and Performance Dog.
Did you know if your dog can SIT, DOWN, STAY and COME WHEN CALLED, SPEAK and SHAKE HANDS you already have 6 of the 10 tricks needed for a Novice Title?
If your dog has earned an AKC Canine Good Citizen title that's 5 tricks!
As of April 2020 AKC is allowing video review by an AKC CGC Evaluator to certify your dog's awesomeness!
