Gold Award!

We are delighted to announce that Karen and Henry (supported by husband John) have become the 23rd combination, since Enve Canine Services was established in 2010, to be awarded with their Gold II. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to reach this award. Congratulations!

Gold Awards!

Congratulations to Gina and her German Shepherd Ziva for becoming the 21st combination to achieve their Gold II award. They were closely followed only a couple of days later by Paul with his gorgeous boxer Tosh, the 22nd combination to reach this standard since Enve Canine Services started in 2010. Both Gina and Paul have been attending the weekday classes since they started in January 2017 and are the first weekday clients to achieve the prestigious Gold II standard. As you can see both Ziva and Tosh were very interested in their certificates - just checking we had spelt their names correctly! Congratulations to you both!!

Loyal customers

It's been with a mixture of emotions that we have seen some returning clients to class just recently. These are clients that trained puppies/dogs with us 10 years ago when we first started this business. It has been lovely to see familiar faces and catch up on the changes in the last 10 years however there has been sadness in the realisation that those original puppies/dogs who helped to found our business have lived their entire lives and passed over the rainbow bridge.

One of the clients we have happily welcomed back are Jill and Len who trained their cocker spaniel Berty with us in 2010 (pictured below). They have recently returned to us to train their new cocker spaniel Monty (aged 5 months pictured above). This is what they had to say about their experience with Enve:

Hi Emma and Ve,

Just to thank you for all the help and advice you gave me in puppy training with Monty. Although I did it all for a very long time with our previous  cocker Berty, you tend to forget and get into bad habits. So, thank you, it has really helped and Monty is so good off lead and recall now and you gave me the confidence to do it. Thank you once again.

Love Jill and Monty  xx

Berty aged 9 months

Gold Award for Suzy and Bear

Congratulations to Instructor Suzy for achieving her Gold II award with Bear.  They are only the 20th combination to reach this standard since Enve Canine Services started in 2010. It takes a lot of hard work and practice to pass the Gold II test. One of the hardest elements is a 10 minute out of sight stay - exactly as it sounds, the handler has to leave the dog in a stay and go out of sight for 10 minutes and they cannot move. Bear really struggled with this exercise to start with but with Suzy's dedication, hard work and lots and lots of practice they got there. Congratulations!!

Gold Awards!

Better late than never! Back in July instructors Emma and her 12month old GSP Luca and Pauline with her labrador Buster became the 18th and 19th combinations respectively to achieve their Enve Gold II Awards since Enve Canine Services first started in 2010. Belated congratulations to you both!! Who is going to get that coveted 20th Gold II spot?! Watch this space …….

Gold award for Vicky and Harley!

Congratulations to Vicky for achieving her Gold II award with the gorgeous Harley.  They are only the 17th combination to reach this standard since Enve Canine Services started in 2010. It has taken Vicky approx. 2 years of hard work and dedication and a very competitive streak and we couldn't be happier for them!! Congratulations!!

Love is in the air on the agility course!

Billy arrived at Enve Canine Services training classes as a newly rescued, ball of snarling black fur, scared of all other dogs. Fast forward a few years and he is no longer aggressive and head over heels in love with Malliboo, the agility loving Bulldog. So much so that he couldn't bear to let her do her agility without him so he joined in. Just look at them loving every minute - I absolutely love this video as it shows how far Billy has come and it proves that Bulldogs can jump! I hope you enjoy it too.

Double Gold Award for Elisabeth with Caris and Bryn!

Congratulations to Elisabeth for attaining not one, but two Gold II awards with her dogs Caris and Bryn.  To get two dogs to the Gold II standard really is an outstanding achievement. The video clip above shows just how good they are! They are only the 15th  and 16th dogs to reach this standard since Enve Canine Services started in 2010. Congratulations!!
