"I love this place.  My puppy and I learned a lot in puppy kindergarten and we are going back for pet 101 and try for AKC Puppy STAR.  I highly recommend this place.  Perfect atmosphere."

"Mallory was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job teaching. For only 6 weeks it was a lot of information well presented."

“Beth is fair, honest and very respectful of both dogs and handlers and genuinely interested in their learning.”

"Sumac is friendly, engaging and focused.  She can handle questions, adapt to behaviors, and is very informative."

About Marianne's Reactive Dog Class:  "She was so knowledgeable! She made sure we all felt comfortable and kept the classroom a safe and productive environment."

 AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program 

AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program

How it Works
Puppies eligible for the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy program are up to one year of age.  Any Breed or mixed breed may participate.

Note!  To participate in this program, you must tell us when you sign up for class!  Currently Mallory Hattie's Pet Dog 101 or 102 classes and Sumac Grant-Johnson's Pet Dog 101 or 102 classes are eligible for STAR Puppy participants.

To quality as a S.T.A.R. Puppy you and your puppy must  complete a basic training class, taught by an AKC Approved CGC Evaluator.  You must attend your training class for at least 6 weeks and at the end of the six weeks, the instructor will administer the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy test.  Upon passing the test, you'll get an application to send to the AKC for enrollment in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program. 

Your puppy will receive the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Medal (for display or memento purposes; not suitable as a collar tag). You and your puppy will be listed in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy records. In addition, so that you can continue learning, you will receive the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy package that includes:

  • A beautiful, frameable certificate designating your puppy is in the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy records at AKC
  • AKC Puppy Handbook, a valuable resource
  • Discount to enroll in AKC Companion Animal Recovery Corporation, a 24-hour recovery service
  • Ongoing Monthly Email Newsletter: Your AKC. This includes training tips and up-to-date information every dog owner needs to know. We want you and your puppy to continue learning beyond puppy classes.

Telling Tails classes that qualify for the AKC S.T.A.R Puppy program are Pet Dog 101 or 102 classes taught by Mallory Hattie or Sumac Grant- Johnson.
