Dave Currier is a gold level examiner and an examiner- assessor for the Kennel Club
The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme is a dog training programme that promotes socially acceptable dogs and creates responsible dog owners. The Scheme is non competitive and is open to dogs of all ages and all breeds, whether Kennel Club registered or not.
There are 4 levels of the Scheme if you incude the puppy foundation which is an assessment for dogs under the age of 12 months: Bronze, Silver and Gold.
Silver: The Silver Award aims to build upon the skills learned in the Bronze Award while increasing the level of difficulty.
The Silver Award is a natural progression of practical dog training skills and introduces new concepts such as the controlled greeting, road walk and vehicle control exercises which are important in everyday life situations.
Gold: The Gold Award is the highest level of achievement of the Scheme. It builds upon the skills learned in the Silver Award and develops more advance training skills of the dog and handlers, and introduces new concepts such as relaxed isolation, stop the dog and send the dog to bed exercises, which are important in every day life situations. Dogs that are awarded the Gold Certificate should reach the required standards in all exercises and be a worthy representative of the Scheme's highest standard.
Bronze: Emphasis is placed on the handler's ability to handle, control and generally care for their dog in a domestic environment.
