NTU’s Canine Centre, based at Brackenhurst Campus, scooped the prize for Best Newcomer in the Kennel Club’s Good Citizen Dog Scheme awards.

The centre at NTU was nominated for the award after a call out on Facebook.

The centre is run in partnership with The Kennel Club and is part of the Good Citizen Dog Training Scheme. It aims to promote responsible dog ownership and become a destination for dog owners to visit, with country walks, to agility sessions and life skill classes.

All of the classes are taught by qualified members of staff with expert knowledge in the field of canine behaviour and training. The latest scientific research is also utilised to ensure the classes are ethical, relevant and up to date.

Emily Birch, Research Fellow at NTU said: “We are over the moon to have won the Best Newcomer award- it means a lot.

“We are truly passionate about everything that we do and we really do care about the wellbeing and happiness of both owners and dogs, so to win this award is really wonderful.”
