“Being a YKC member is one of the best choices I have ever made. I have been a member since I was 7 years old. I have been taught so many different things with my dog but also social skills as well!"
"I think it's great for kids to join the YKC, as it gives them a wider education and the opportunity to learn more about subjects that interest them. They read independently through the 'Fetch' magazine, the articles are written in a way that makes it fun and easily understood. They have been given opportunities to help them to develop great social skills and fabulous sportsmanship. Their confidence has grown and they are all outgoing, polite, independent and sociable young people."
