KC Good Citizen

The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme (KCGCDS) is the largest dog training scheme in the UK. It`s aim is to promote responsible dog ownership and in turn enhance our relationship with our pets.

The Happy Dog Haven is an approved training establishment to provide training courses and assessment days, for anyone wishing to take part in the Kennel Club GCDS.

The Kennel Club developed these nationally recognised qualifications for dogs and owners to demonstrate their levels of obedience, along with responsible dog ownership. The scheme is non – competitive and emphasis is placed on standard of achievement in a relaxed, fun environment. The scheme incorporates four awards, each level is progressive - owners can expect a gradual development of obedience exercises and life skills, along with an increase of knowledge in responsible dog ownership.

Each course will be run over 7-weeks. This would be 6-weeks of tuition with the assessment scheduled on week 7.

Please note – this is subject to the availability of a KC authorised assessor (and readiness of dog & handler) Each dog and handler team that pass the assessment, will receive an official KC certificate and rosette. The weekly lessons will cover the skills needed in the following levels: Puppy Foundation, Bronze, Silver, Gold
