Good Canine Citizen
Good Canine Citizen is suitable for dogs of all ages.
Being a dog owner can be a source of joy and great companionship. However, your dog needs to be well trained and socialized to cultivate good habits in it. Hence, it is necessary to obedience train your pet dog.
Don’t believe the old cliche which advises waiting until your dog is 6mths old before starting to train him !! Doing so will only lead to a young adult dog with unstructured behaviour and many behaviourial issues ie resource guarding, leash pulling, chewing, reactive to dogs & people, which could have been avoided.
By starting your puppy ( 2.5 months and above ) in our Comprehensive Good Canine Citizen Program for friendly dogs of all ages, you establish the proper behaviour right from the start so that your puppy will grow up to be a well-socialized, well-behaved and confident dog in a multi-racial society like Singapore.
** All puppies must have completed at least 1 vaccination and free from contagious illnesses and fleas & ticks.

Nikki completed her Good Canine Citizen training with Shanice and we have really benefited from the private training sessions as a family! Shanice emphasises positive training and reinforcements, which we value very much.

Princess Nanuk and I enjoyed our basic obedience training with Shanice. I learnt that training was possible with positive reinforcement, which was especially helpful as Nanuk is averse to the usual negative methods that I'm more accustomed to with my parents' dog. Nanuk is now a Good Canine Citizen. Thank you SuperNova and Shanice!

Henna had her basic obedience trainings the past 6 weeks. We learnt a lot from Shanice. Greatly appreciate her patience and her delivery of the lessons in easy to learn ways. For us, the takeaway is the focus on positive reinforcements. Rewarding upon obeying commands. We definitely will keep training Henna our daily duty as what Shanice regularly reminds us.

Koby has completed the Dog Obedience Training conducted by the Trainer Shanice. Shanice is dedicated and has excellent knowledge of dogs. She has demonstrated very good understanding of golden retriever qualities and behaviour. With better understanding of Koby, it has improved our relationship. We have also bring him to a better control and management after the short period of training.
