Good Citizen Dog Scheme Annual Awards

Nominations are now open for the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Annual Awards 2019. The Annual Awards were created in recognition of the hard work, efforts and contribution made by clubs, local authorities and dedicated canine enthusiasts.

The Annual Awards are a way of rewarding Clubs and individuals for their commitment to the Scheme and in turn, the canine world. In promoting the Scheme’s curriculum, educational talks, poop scoop campaigns to sponsored dog walking etc..., all aspects of canine awareness are of great benefit and should be considered for a nomination.

We would like to hear about all the activities that clubs and individuals have been involved in. Nominations can be from fellow club members, pupils at a training class or dog owners who have been inspired by the help and support they have received.
