Individualised Training


Perhaps group classes aren’t for you (or your dog for that matter!). Are you looking for a more individualised approach? Pauline can offer 1:1 tailored training programs for you and your dog.

  • New puppy – even before your puppy has had their vaccinations and is able to go out into the big, wide, world, Pauline can meet you in your home to discuss and advise on all of those new puppy questions – toilet training, puppy biting, sleeping through the night, creating routines, getting used to walking on a lead, socialisation and habituation and lots more.

 

  • Recall – struggling with recall? It may be that your cue has become poisoned (the dog no longer listens) or the world is too exciting. Pauline can help re teach a recall from the beginning. (Please note the client would be responsible for booking and paying for a secure area to conduct this training).

 

  • Scentwork – a fabulous skill for any dog but really helps give an outlet to high energy working breeds. From how to search, to introducing the target odour and refining an indication, Pauline can teach you and your dog this skill.

 

  • Amateur gundog – a fantastic program for any gundog breed tapping into those breed specific drivers to hunt, point and retrieve. Working with dummys and a whistle to train a range of gundog skills.

 

  • Other specific needs can be discussed on an individual basis. Please note the focus is on training, not behavioural modification. These services are available in a 15 mile radius of Deal only. For behavioural modification please click here.

Introducing your instructor

Pauline Copley

I used to show Irish setters, with a fair amount of success at Open Shows. I loved the idea of a well-behaved dog that was not afraid of other dogs or being handled by the judges in the show ring, as well as being pretty stunning to look at. Many years later, I decided to go back to having a dog around and purchased Buster, a Labrador puppy. I wanted to find a training school for Buster, to make sure he was as ‘dog and people friendly’ as possible. I found Emma and Ve at Enve and decided this looked the right club for me; friendly, fun and a bit of agility which I hadn’t tried before. Buster started in puppies, has worked through the classes and in July 2018 passed his Gold II award. Frankie, the border collie puppy joined me in 2019 and flew through his training achieving his Gold II in 2021.

At Enve, nothing is too much trouble, no one is turned away and you are guaranteed a bit of a laugh during your lesson.  Every dog owner is shown how to work with their dog through play and reward to get the best from their relationship.

I am always looking to expand my knowledge through training courses both academically and by attending training with my dogs – trick training, heelwork to music, scentwork, man trailing, gundog, obedience – I love to learn. The more I learn, the more skills I have to help others. I have recently started competing again in obedience with Frankie and am delighted that we have had some early successes.

Pauline is a qualified Scentwork UK instructor.
