I’ve updated my training schedule to show the new classes, additional training and the GVDTC in-house instructor course I am running with Anne Weston.

GCDS Bronze Award Success!

Well done to members of my GVDTC Thursday Obedience class who took their GCDS Bronze award today. Everyone passed and it was lovely to see such a mixed group of Spaniels; a Clumber, Welsh Springer, Working Cocker and two English Springers! Congratulations to Sarah Cundy & Blossom, Tina Smith & Judy, Gail Clark & Gem, Kathy Williams & Barney Rubble and Natasha Harrison and Lulu. I’m very proud of you all. Special thanks to the examiner, Anne Weston and to club members for allowing us exclusive use of the club grounds for the award. Tim is working on the photos but for now here is one of the group.

Training schedule updated for Bronze/Silver awards

I’ve updated my training schedule to reflect the extra lessons we’ll be doing in the run-up to the next Bronze and Silver Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme awards in September. There will also be mock tests which I have provisionally arranged for 4th September.

GCDS Bronze Award Success!

Massive congratulations to all my GVDTC Thursday class who took their Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Bronze Award today! Six dogs tested and all six passed – well done guys you did me proud! The examiner was really impressed with your standard; in fact, she said you were all, at least in some areas, above Bronze level. See you all on 10th July when we’ll start working towards the Silver.

Achieved Kennel Club GCDS Bronze examiner

Today I travelled to Frampton Cotterell near Bristol to be assessed by the Kennel Club as a Good Citizen Dog Scheme Bronze Award Examiner.  It was a long and tiring day but I’m pleased to say that I passed the written, oral and practical exams and I’m now an  ‘A’ listed  Kennel Club Good Citizen Bronze Award Examiner.  Next stop Silver!

Mock GCDS Bronze award

On Thursday, the majority of my regular GVDTC took their mock test in advance of the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Bronze Award due on 26th June.  Understandably, everyone was a little bit nervous but they soon settled in and we had some good results.  There’s a week left before the actual examination so this gives dogs and handlers time to work on any areas they need to.  Good luck to all!

Obedience trainer post at GVDTC

I’m really pleased that I’ve been asked to take on the 6-months+ dog training obedience classes at the Golden Valley Dog Training Club.  The club have a great team of experienced trainers and I’m delighted to be joining them.  GVDTC is associated with the Kennel Club and I will be training at all levels.

I train beginner upwards and, for those that want to, I will work towards the Good Citizens Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.  I’ll be running two classes on a Thursday at 1.30 pm and 6.30 pm so do come along and join in.
