The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme

The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme is the largest dog training scheme in the UK. Its aim is to promote responsible dog ownership and in turn, enhance our relationship with our pets and to make the community aware of the benefits associated with dog ownership.

It,s a dog,s life so take care of it
‘One of the animals which a generous and sociable man would soonest become is a
dog. A dog can have a friend; he has affections and character, he can enjoy equally the
field and the fireside: he dreams, he caresses, he propitiates; he offends and is pardoned;
he stands by you in adversity; he is a good fellow’.
