Puppy socialisation classes are a mixture of supervised off lead socialisation in our large, secure pen and introducing obedience via structured exercises. Early socialisation is essential to ensuring that your dog develops the ability to mix with dogs of other breeds and ages and can prevent problems in later life. Obedience is introduced by exercises for example, working on walking on the lead, the sit, the stand and coming back when called. We introduce the puppies to new experiences such as during the weekend classes our agility equipment; we get them going over poles on the ground, through the tunnels and over the contact equipment. There are lots of opportunities to ask questions about common problems such as toilet training and play biting. Puppies can start as soon as they have had their second vaccinations and the vet says they can go out and remain in puppy class until they are 6-9 months old (depending on breed and maturity). We would encourage you to join in as soon as possible even if it is mid-course rather than wait until a new course stars – with puppies you won’t have missed anything that won’t be covered again, there are plenty of opportunities for questions and early socialisation is really essential in their development.
Adult group training classes are a mixture of obedience and at weekends, fun agility. We work on all common problems in the pet dog such as pulling on the lead, manners and coming back when called. The group classes are a great way to get your dog to respond to you with the distraction of other people and dogs around them. All of our clients are understanding as everyone is there to help fix a problem with their dog. Dog training is also a fantastic hobby for both you and your dog!
Weekend courses are normally 6 weeks long and cost £72 (1hr lesson). Weekday obedience classes are normally 5 weeks long and cost £50 (45 min lesson). We offer all new clients the opportunity to try one week for £12/£10 (weekend/weekday) as a way of test driving the training. If it is what you are after you can return, sign up and pay for the remainder of the course. If it is not what you are after then you are under no obligation to return. If you join mid-course we pro rata the course fee to cover weeks attended. All classes are held outdoors whatever the weather so waterproof clothing is essential!
Alternatively we do offer 1:1 in home lessons, normally Tuesday and Thursday (term time, school hours) and occasionally on Saturday afternoons, for £35 an hour.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch. Look forward to hearing from you,

Have tried a few dog training classes and this is the best. Lovely trainers who really know their stuff, friendly group, cannot thank them enough for the help they gave. Could not fault them.
Fantastic and helped so much with Axles reactive ways. Taught me alot of ways to deal with and defuse a situation.
Would highly recommend.

Cannot recommend Enve too highly. I have used both their bespoke one to one training session and group obedience and agility for my 5 year old husky, Faelan, and puppy classes for my now 4 month old husky puppy Artek. The one to one training with the amazing handler Emma gave us the knowledge and confidence we were missing when it came to tackling Faelan's very negative responses to other dogs and general poor on lead behaviour. The subsequent group training has given us all the tools we needed to rectify the problems and Faelan is now much more comfortable around other dogs and a dream to walk, no pulling at all. He's learnt skills, such as off lead heel work, that I never even dreamt he could do. All this is down to Enve's cruelty free training methods which place all the responsibility on the owner, as it should be! The methods are easy to learn and once repeated over and over again any dog could learn them. The staff are always willing to give advice on everything from grooming to crate training. As a result of Faelan's classes we found out he actually really enjoys the company of other dogs, we had made him anxious! As soon as we gained the confidence to relax so did he- we rewarded all of his hard work with a baby brother, who is also enrolled with Enve in their puppy class. Artek's puppy classes have been so much fun, Suzy is great at keeping everything calm which is no easy feat when you have a pen full of puppies of various ages and sizes all clamouring for attention! Artek has come on so quickly thanks to Enve we're confident we can take him all the way and get him their very rigorous gold award in the future! Classes are affordable, and I think extremely reasonable considering all the extra advice and time they put towards your dogs. Agility is so much fun! The one to one sessions obviously cost more but they are so so worth it if you have a specific problem with your dog that you can't resolve on your own. If you're in Kent and you want to do the right thing and properly train your dog, go to Enve you will never regret it, we could not be more grateful for what they've done for our boys. More...
