THE KENNEL CLUB GOOD CITIZEN DOG AWARD SCHEME

Acorn Dog Training holds Kennel Club Listed Status. We run regular courses to educate owners about the importance of having a well trained dog which is completely well socialised and socially acceptable to other members of society. For full information about the Good Citizen Dog Scheme click on the Kennel Club logo:

WE WOULD LIKE TO CONGRATULATE EVERYONE WHO PASSED THE GOOD CITIZENS TEST in 2004, details of those who passed in previous years can be viewed here for 2002 ,for 2003, for 2004 and 2005

These passes are genuine achievements. All dogs have to show that they are able complete the exercises to a satisfactory standard. At Acorn Dog Training, we do NOT allow dogs to pass tests at any level if they are unable to complete the required tasks in a satisfactory manner. Neither do we suggest that dogs whom we feel require further training join in on test days.

A very special WELL DONE goes to Gill Reeman and Tiggy. Tiggy was a very nervous dog right from puppy group. She would run and hide from other dogs and people until she was well over a year old. Many would have given up, but Gill didn't. Not only has Tiggy passed all three levels of the Good Citizen Test, she is now competing in agility. Tiggy may not be the fastest dog on the course, but she is very close to getting her first clear round in competition - surrounded by hundreds of other dogs and people. Well done Gill and Tiggy from Fran and the gang.

Many thanks to our regular judge, Steve Beechey of The Thames Valley Police Dog Section, and Member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and to all those who gave generously to our collection for DogLost - helping owners to be re-united with missing and stolen dogs.
