Why Pre-Bronze?

The Pre-Bronze Award works towards the APDT's Adult Beginner Award. This is a fun half-way step towards the KC Good Citizen Bronze Award.

Successful dogs will receive their APDT Adult Beginner certificate and rosette.

After the Pre-Bronze Award, dogs can progress to the KC Bronze Award, Silver Award - and then Gold Award.

We use clicker training in all our classes and a free clicker is provided.

Want to know more?

I had never used the clicker before and I’m really impressed - it works brilliantly! Even if you have never needed to go to a training class before, I would highly recommend this one. The tips Jo gave were brilliant and having someone there to email with questions and receive advice and help from when needed, was of huge value. Would I recommend it, YES, without a doubt. Just wish I had heard of DogWorks earlier, then I could have joined the puppy classes first.
