PUPPY MANNERS TITLE

Have you heard the word?

AKC has a new virtual titling program called Virtual Home Manners (VHM.)

This new program allows you to work on practical skills at home with your dog and provides a great transition to in-person AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy

and Canine Good Citizen (CGC).

 

There are two levels:

VManners for puppies 3 months to 1 year of age

Manners Adult for dogs age 4 months or older.

 

Each title focuses on 10 skills that help your dog become a well-mannered pet.

The skills focus on having basic control of your dog and working on developing your relationship.

 

How Does It Work?

We offer testing in person, via Zoom, or you can submit a video of your dog performing the skills required on the checklist.

When you pass I send you the checklist verification form.  You will then be able to send the form & Title Application to the AKC for the title to be recorded.

 

TESTING OPTIONS

Test Only $35.00

One online consult to review and then test  $65.00

3 week online class concluding with test on the 4th week $125.00

Costs listed cover: Testing and classes, our evaluation of your video (or live video) test, rosette, AKC paperwork, postage for all items to you.
