Silver Good Citizen Award

Once the Puppy and or Bronze awards have been achieved you can go on to train for the Kennel Club Silver Good Citizen Award.  This course is for 8 weeks.  We recognise that with the extra demands of the course not all dogs are ready to take the test after 8 weeks, if this is the case you may continue on a weekly club membership basis and a subscription fee until you and your dog are ready for the award.  In this class you will learn:

  • Road walking - we ensure that your dog can be safely walked along the road beside you, not leading the way!
  • Food refusal - important in multi-dog household and especially where there are children.
  • Recall to heel.
  • Dog to come away from distractions.
  • Control in a car - we aim to help ensure that your dog is a well behaved and safe traveller in the car.
  • Prepare for vet examination building on what has already been achieved in the Bronze course.
