st. johns ambulance run it where i am from

its obedience and socialization

some require a good canine citizenship

here it requires, the dog be older than 1 year, sit, walk on loose leash, be ok with distractions (wheelchairs, joggers, loud noises) also be accepting of a stranger, and no overexcitedness, ie sitting nicely to be pet no jumping etc etc
