ID Disc
4/16/2014 2:53:37 PM

This is what you should have engraved on your dog's ID disc. You will need this to pass any Good Citizen Dog Scheme level. It also the law in England that every dog should have an ID disc when walking in a public place.
Note, it is highly recommended NOT to put your dog's name on the disc.

New classes

Great news !! New Bronze level classes started this month, and they are a right mixture. 7:30 class look like they wil be right up for it. The 8:00pm class is the puppy class, and they are running riot. Photos next week.
The 7:00pm is the Silver level class and they dont know what's hit them. A big step up from the fun of the Bronze level. Now it gets serious (but still fun)

Bronze assessment
12/12/2012 1:34:37 PM
5 lucky hopefuls put through their paces last night at the school for their Bronze level awards.
Watch this space for news of who passed and who was not quite ready...

12/4/2012 11:09:08 AM
Please note there will be no training for the 7:30pm class on the 11th December as the 7:00pm class will be doing their Bronze assessment.
The 7:00pm class will be cancelled when the 7:30pm class is doing theirs in January/February.

Bronze Assessment
12/4/2012 11:01:59 AM
11th December will be the Bronze level assessment for the 7:00pm class.
In order to prepare I will be giving you all a handout with information which you will need to brush up on for the assessment.
Can I also remind all pupils to bring with them
  • Their record of achievement cards fully filled in
  • Their upto date vaccination cards
  • A brush/comb
  • And a poo bag.
And remember this is not a pass or fail neither is it a competition. It is merely a 'pass' or 'not quite ready' yet.
Remember to enjoy it and make sure your dog enjoys it.
No harsh words or harsh lead control. Be enthusiastic your dog will work so much better.
Good luck.
