Puppy Courses

The Puppy Course is a great way for puppies to meet other dogs, new people and learn the correct way to behave around them. Classes are fun and stimulating for both puppies and owners, using only kind, fair and effective techniques that reward good behaviour.

Puppy Training

Your puppy is developing at a tremendous rate, absorbing information like a sponge and whilst having a puppy is great fun, it can also be exhausting, frustrating and hard work. However, the time and effort you put into it now will be repaid a thousand fold and you will end up with a well-mannered, well behaved and friendly dog.

KC Good Citizen Dog Scheme

The Puppy training can also help you to take one of the Kennel Club Good Citizen Award tests - Sue Baines will advise on how to take the test.  In order to make it simpler for everybody 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 various stages, Foundation, 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.

Aim of Training

We teach owners to train their dogs using only kind, fair and effective methods. Although classes work towards various awards they are not the ultimate aim and are merely incorporated as a ‘bench mark ‘and motivator/reward to indicate the progress made. The ultimate aim is to educate handlers so that they have the knowledge, skills and understanding to enable them to train their dog, be aware of the dog’s needs and their responsibilities as an owner. This way both should enjoy a happy life together.

Code of Practice

GVDTC is a Kennel Club registered club and we adhere to the KCAI and the APDT Codes of Practice. Further details can be found on their websites.
