Puppy School Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme

At Dogs Country Club we are here to help owners realise just how much their puppy is capable of, when to exercise and rest their puppy, how to change their puppy’s behaviour in a positive way and how to build that all-important bond between puppy and owner. We aim to get this information across using positive, practical and easy-to-understand, fun training sessions and the results so far are proving it’s a job we are doing well. By giving a puppy lots of opportunities to experience our big wide world in a positive way, they learn from a very early age that the sights, sounds, smells and people in this world are not all scary. Dealing with the unknown in everyday life is easier for a puppy than for the adult dog. That’s why we positively encourage all new puppy owners to sign up for our Puppy Training.

We don’t just deliver training for the owners of puppies, we are regularly helping and guiding the owners of our Day Care dogs with hints and tips along with dealing with questions and queries from owners. We even assist some of our customers as they use the secure fields and sand paddock, helping them to understand how best to integrate their dogs in the fun-filled drop-in play sessions. Of course, we know that not every dog can be integrated into mixed groups of dogs and we work with these particular dogs and their owners through one-to-one training sessions.

At Dogs Country Club Training School, we are dedicated to providing high-quality training that not only meets the requirements of The Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme but also goes above and beyond. Our experienced trainers use positive reinforcement techniques to ensure a fun and effective learning experience for both dogs and owners. Dogs Country Club Training School takes great pride in being able to offer The Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme and has been approved with Listed Status since 2016. We are honoured to be an official examination centre for The Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme which is the largest dog training scheme in the UK, offering exams for Puppy Foundation, Bronze, Silver, and Gold levels. Exams 2024 are scheduled for February, May, September, and November. To learn more visit the website page via LINK
