silver-gcdsAs the Kennel Club website describes: “The Silver Award builds naturally on the skills learnt in the Bronze award level albeit with an increased level of difficulty; and helps consolidate the owners understanding and training of their pet. New “real life” situations are introduced such as playtime, walking along a road and getting into and out of the family car. Exercises tested include the owner remaining in control of their dog when there are distractions and ensuring the dog does not jump up when greeting friends.”

For further information this award level and the specific exercises that are tested, please take a look at this pdf file:

As the Kennel Club also states:- Responsibility & Care accompanies all levels of the Scheme and educates owners about responsibilities to their dog and the community”.
