As we head towards the end of the year we have four more Gold II Awards to announce.  Unfortunately, we have not yet had the opportunity to present her certificate to one so we will save her for the first post of 2023!

It is exceptionally difficult to pass the Gold II test, which is why out of thousands of dogs that have passed through us in 13 years the numbers are so low and so celebrated. It really is a fantastic achievement and a real commitment. 2022 saw the presentation of seven Gold II awards – will you get yours in 2023?

Della and Dudley

Congratulations to Pip & Della and Stephen & Dudley who attend our Minster classes as they become the 40th and 41st combinations in 13 years to pass their Gold II Award. Both dogs have attended since puppies. Della is a 4yr old soft coated wheaten terrier and Dudley is a 7yr old golden retriever. Both have worked hard to get through the Enve levels. Congratulations!


Congratulations to Rosemary and Poppy who attend our Thanington classes as they become the 43rd combination in 13 years to pass their Gold II Award. Poppy is a 4 year old cockapoo who just loves coming to class. Congratulations!

(for those with eagle eyes, we know we made a mistake on the polo – don’t worry, a replacement is in the works!)
