More about The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme
There are over 1700 organisations throughout the UK that promote The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Training scheme training and it’s awards. Classes are usually run on a weekly basis and are fun and enjoyable for you and your dog.
Dogs and owners of any fitness level or disability can take part. The scheme is non-competitive and emphasis is placed on the standard of achievement.
Training clubs will usually accept dogs of any age after they've completed their vaccinations. Many clubs will have some tips to help you until you get to the training classes.
There are four award levels: Puppy Foundation, Bronze, Silver and Gold.
Bronze, Silver and Gold courses require a short test set at the end of the course or on an approved test day. An approved scheme examiner will assess whether you and your dog meet the required standard.
Each dog and handler who passes is issued with a Good Citizen Dog Training scheme certificate (applicable to the award level). Rosettes, pin badges, souvenir dog discs and a range of merchandise is also available.
