New behaviours

The Silver Award course sees dogs leaving the hall to practise loose-lead walking in a more distracting environment.

We work on useful training exercises in everyday situations, such as control getting in and out of a car, no-jumping up and recalls away from distractions.

On successful completion of the course, dogs will be awarded the KC Good Citizen Silver Award certificate and rosette.

After the Silver Award, dogs can continue to the Gold Award.

Your handouts describe each exercise step-by-step with video material to illustrate the different points. At the beginning of the course, I couldn’t imagine how we could achieve a perfect retrieve. But, hey presto, by the end of 6 weeks we were almost there!
