Our Happy Clients



"Highly recommend"

"Lost without your help"

I had previously attended a different puppy school and sat in a chair for 5 weeks. Having had a previous dog I did know some basics but decided to attend CTE which was a great decision. Ruth provides a different approach to any other training I have attended. Along with the basics we also had the opportunity to expose our pups to different environmental experiences. Highly recommend CTE and this approach.

Another brilliant round of obedience classes for Bella run by Ruth. Ruth is such a natural trainer with all dogs. Such an amazing person to have found!! Highly highly recommend

Thank you Ruth for engaging, fun and informative puppy classes for Bella. We would have been lost without your help! It was really special to watch the kids learn to be responsible for our new puppy. Thanks for letting us all be a part of it together.

"Learnt so much"

Hugo and I have completed the Puppy Fundamentals course and are now working with Ruth on social skills out and about with some walk and trains. We have learnt so much thanks to Ruth's patience and passion for what she does. She gives practical and achievable training advice that is easy to practise outside sessions.

"Exceeded our expectations"

We have sought out Canine Training and Enrichments services for both one on one lessons and group classes, both of which have far exceeded our expectations. Classes and lessons have had a strong real-world application focus and has also assisted in exposing my dog to a range of stimuli which, for a covid puppy has been incredibly helpful in building his confidence and comfort around such things.

Ruth is an authentic and kind trainer who has worked with me to support the development needs and goals for my puppy. This is also evidenced by how excited my puppy gets whenever he sees Ruth!

As a first time dog owner, Ruth has also taken the time to educate and equip me with the skills and knowledge to enable me to continue to train and develop my dog at home by myself. Whenever I’ve had any questions around particular behaviours or how to train my dog in something, Ruth has always been able to provide me with advice and guidance on what I can do to achieve the outcome I am looking for.

I have no doubt that her services and guidance have contributed to helping develop Rèmy into a well mannered and confident puppy. I would not hesitate to recommend Canine Training and Enrichments to any dog owner looking for training and lessons!
