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.
