Good Citizen Dog Scheme

It is recommended that as soon as your puppy has had its puppy vaccinations you should start puppy socialisation classes and training to prepare it for its future life. The Kennel Club’s (KC) Good Citizen Dog Scheme is the largest dog training programme in the UK and we encourage new Manchester Terrier puppy owners to enrol as soon as possible.

The Scheme promotes responsible dog ownership by teaching owners to train their dogs for everyday life situations. There are four levels starting with Puppy Foundation, then moving onto Bronze, Silver and Gold, each one developing an owners understanding, while building a dog’s confidence and levels of domestic obedience skills.
