Today I was invited over to Malvern & District Dog Training Club to examine
Silver and Gold awards. These are the dogs that passed – well done to everyone!

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.

What an excellent day! My young cocker Phoebe passed her Kennel Club Good Citizen Silver Award yesterday. She was the youngest dog there at only just 1 year old with the other dogs all considerably older at 2, 3 and 5 years. Of the 6 dogs that took part only 3 passed so it was a tremendous achievement for her. As always she was very focused, keen to work but importantly enjoyed herself – well done Pheebs!
I hope to put Phoebe in for her Kennel Club Good Citizens silver award test in a couple of weeks. We’ve got a practice session booked for next week after which I’ll make the decision to go for silver. She’s still very young for this but (most of the time) she can do the majority of the exercises/tests.
We’re training hard so, fingers crossed, we’re hopeful…
