KC Good Citizen Dog Scheme

In order to make it simpler for Members to find out what is required for the various Kennel Club Good Citizens Award tests the information is now available direct from our web site.  On the button bar above you will see the three stages, Bronze Silver and Gold. Then there is the essential reading of Responsibility & Care requirements  plus the Canine code.  Once displayed you can print or download your own copy.
