Liz Scott Approved Canine Good Citizen Instructor!

Phoenix is pleased to announce Liz Scott has been approved by NZKC as a Canine Good Citizen Dog Instructor for Hamilton.

The purpose of the canine good citizen programme is to ensure that our favourite companion, the dog, can be a respected member of the community because it is trained and conditioned to act with good manners in the home, public places and in the presence of other dogs and animals

Canine good citizen training is fun and useful. through canine good citizen you and your dog can establish a closer bond and your dog will have the added benefit of knowing how to please you.

The canine good citizen assessment is not a competition and does not require that you and your dog perform with ‘competition’ precision, but it should show the dog’s willingness to obey instructions given from the handler, demonstrate basic training and consistently display good temperament.

This class covers a full range of basic exercises that test the dog’s temperament and obedience, as well as the handler’s knowledge about care, responsibility and legal requirements of dog ownership.


There are four levels to be worked through – from food and car manners to distance work and handlng of dogs by strangers. Dogs completing these four levels are considered to be able to show safe behaviour in public places.


This class also prepares handlers wishing to gain the New Zealand Kennel Club (NZKC) Canine Good Citizen qualifications. Some club members have gone on to do the NZKC qualifications.
