    @Lucy-licious...the S.T.A.R. Puppy Program is the AKC's version of the CGC for puppies. The have to attend a 6 weeks of training and pass the following"

    OWNER BEHAVIOR:
    Maintian puppy's health, Sign the CGC Responsible Owners Pledge, Owner has an adequate daily play and excercise plan, Owner and Puppy attend at least 6 puppy classes, Owner brings bags to class for cleaning up after puppy, Owner has obtained some form of ID for the puppy.

    PUPPY BEHAVIORS:
    Free of aggression toward people during the puppy class, Free of aggression toward other puppies in the class, Tolerates collar or body harness of owner's choice (no electronic collars), Owner can hug or hold puppy (depending on size), Puppy allows owner to take away a treat or toy.

    PRE-CANINE GOOD CITIZEN BEHAVIORS:
    Allows (in any position) petting by a person other than the owner, Grooming-allows owner handling and brief exam by owner (ears, feet), walks on a leash -follows owner on lead in a straight line (15 steps), walks by other people (walks on leash past a person who is 5 ft away), sits on command-owner may use food to lure, down on command-owner may use food to lure, comes to owner from 5-ft when name is called, reaction to distractions-distractions are presented 15 ft away, stays on leash with another person (owner walks 10 steps away and returns).

    This is a list of what is on the S.T.A.R. Puppy eval form. We were just lucky and the place where we are taking Tubs just started this puppy program. His class (of 2) was the first class to get certified as S.T.A.R Puppies for this Kennel Club. They use to do just puppy training classes, not the S.T.A.R. Puppy certification. So, you will have to make sure where ever you decide to go for training they have the ability to certify them. Their is paperwork the trainers have to fill out and send in to the AKC as well.

    I hope this helps. Basically it gives them a head start to becoming a CGC and then they can get certified as a Therapy Dog.

    Congrats to you both. Sounds like you two are quite a team. I don't call them Rat dogs... I call them 'Kick-me' dogs.... Ignore them cuz you know you and tubs are just better than them.

    My dad calls them "waist of time dogs".........but he would consider Tubs one of those too. My dad is a hunter and if you can't use them for anything work related he calls them a waist of time......but he is totally in love with Tubs, but don't ask him to admit it! Plus Tubs is going to be a therapy dog, so he has a purpose......to put smiles on many faces!

    Congratulations to you and Tubs! Those people making negative comments are ignorant. We call those little rat dogs "one bites".

    GOOOO TUBS! You show everyone what bullies can do!

    I so hear you on the rude comments. You know how many comments I get when people find out that Delilah does agility? No one believes me!

    I get all kinds of comments at class, too.
    "Aw, she's too chunky to get over that jump." (she CLEARS all the jumps..)
    "Her face is so smushed she can't see the hand signals!"
    (when she lays down) "Oh look, she's playing dead from being out of shape!"
    "that bulldog is the class clown!"

    I hear your pain, lol. You keep showin' them what bullies can do!

    I think I am going to make a bandana for him to wear to class for now on. It will say, "I have feelings too! Don't BULLY this BULLY!"
