Today I was invited by Canine Connections to examine a Bronze and Silver award for the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme at Govilon near Abergavenny. Such a fab group of dogs and handlers – here are photos of those who passed. Congratulations everyone!
Today I was invited over to Malvern & District Dog Training Club to examine
I was examining more KC GCDS Silver Awards this week at Walford near Ross-on-Wye. Three dogs passed – well done to everyone.
Still very busy examining and this week it was the KC GCDS Silver Award at Walford near Ross-on-Wye. Two dogs passed and had very proud and pleased owners!
I’m doing quite a few Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme examinations over the next few weeks. It’s good to be testing across all the awards – Bronze, Silver and Gold. These are the dogs and handlers that I passed this week in the Ross area. Well done to everyone!
Well done to members of my GVDTC Thursday Obedience class who took their GCDS Silver award today. The weather was very wet but I’m delighted to say that nine dogs passed! Congratulations to Natasha Harrison & Rufus, Kathy Williams & Barney Rubble, Bill Harman & Maddie, Tina Smith with Judy & Hermione, Jenny Shore & Jumble, Gail Clark & Gem, Carol Lloyd & Sox and Heather Suff & Ben. Special thanks to the examiner, Anne Weston. Here’s a photo of the group.
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.
On Friday I travelled to Hockley, near Southend, Essex as the following day I was assessed by the Kennel Club as a Good Citizen Dog Scheme Silver Award Examiner. It was a long way to go but thankfully worth the effort as I’m really chuffed to say that I passed. I’m now an ‘A’ listed GCDS Silver Examiner. Next I’ll be going for Gold!
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.
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.
