Good Citizen Dog Club Awards
This is a Kennel Club Scheme which the club will offer on a regular basis as part of our usual obedience training programme. The aims of the award are to produce a dog who will walk and behave on the lead in a controlled manner, will stay on command and return when called. The dog should also allow its owner to groom and inspect it for injury and generally behave well (and not like a Canine Hooligan!) The scheme also aims to provide handlers with basic knowledge about ownership, handling and training their dog. The Awards are available at different levels starting with a Bronze then progressing to Silver and Gold. Once the Bronze is achieved there is also the opportunity to take part in GCDS classes at Shows. Further details of the test requirements can be found at www.thekennelclub.org.uk.
KC Bronze Good Citizen Test
A KC Bronze Good Citizen test was held at the Club on Wednesday 21 November. 11 dogs passed this successfully out of 15 who sat it – well done everyone, we will do a Silver Test early next year, watch this space!
The first night at the club is free of charge and allows you to see first-hand what the training is all about.
An annual membership fee is then paid Single £13, Family £17, Senior (60 and over) and Junior (under 19) £7) and a weekly fee of £2.50 is paid for each training session. (Seniors and Juniors pay a weekly fee of just £2). Our classes are ongoing and are not done over a set period of weeks so this allows you to stay with us a long as you feel you and your puppy or dog need.
All members are given the opportunity to progress to our later classes which offer more advanced training and will cover everything you need to know to ensure a happy obedient dog.

Or just come along!
P&DDTC club employs motivational training methods and does not support harsh handling. Handlers are encouraged to reinforce desired behaviours rather than punish unwanted ones using food and/or toys as a reward.
