Jennifer Grant's Good Citizens
28th April 2002
Thirteen hard-working dogs and handlers achieved the Kennel Club's Good Citizen Bronze and Silver awards on Saturday 27 April at the Pittentrail Community Hall in Rogart.
The awards are won by the dogs carrying out various exercises, all of which have practical uses in everyday life such as walking nicely on the lead, coming back when called, staying in one place when instructed and various other accomplishments. The handlers were all required to answer questions on the responsibilities of being dog owners and to know how to care for their dogs.
What happens next for these dog and human partnerships? Well, of course, they're GOING FOR GOLD!
Courses are run throughout the year and all are welcome to participate or merely to spectate and see for themselves what fun it is, learning to be GOOD CITIZENS.
