Kennel Club Good Citizen Dogs Scheme

The Award Scheme is open to all dogs!

The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme is the largest dog training programme in the UK and encourages responsible dog ownership and helps cement the bond between you and your dog. Now a well-established dog training programme that has been in operation since 1992. The Scheme is open to all dogs, young or old, pedigree or Crossbreed, whether Kennel Club registered or not.

It provides a quality standard of training for dogs and owners, and incorporates many domestic obedience exercises, with over 481,000 certificates of achievement having being awarded to owners and their dogs who have successfully passed the scheme’s tests. Wessex Dog Training Club is able to guide you and your dog through the award scheme.

Dog owners of any fitness level or disability can take part. The Scheme is non-competitive and emphasis is placed on the standard of achievement.

You and you dog will get a lot of pleasure and a sense of achievement, and they can show all their friends just how clever they are!
