Good citizen dog scheme

Since the launch of the Kennel Club’s nation-wide training programme in 1992 for dogs and their owners, the Good Citizen Dog Scheme has become an outstanding success. Over 52,000 dogs have successfully passed the test which is administrered through 1,050 training organisations. Knowle Dog Training Club is proud to be able to offer the scheme to our members.

The Scheme brings together simple exercises such as Basic dog training, grooming, exercise, cleaning up after the dog and general healthcare. All dogs are eligible for Good Citizen training, be they pedigree or cross-breed, young or old.

The scheme which is none competitive incorporates four awards, The Puppy Foundation Assessment, Bronze, Silver, Gold. Each level involves a gradual development in your understanding of dogs. Dog owners also have an obligation to their community and participants will be guided on the responsibilities of dog ownership. The course is straightforward and non-competitive and on successful completion of each of the tests, participants will be awarded a Certificate to mark their achievement and a rosette on completion.
