Meet The Team
First I would like you to meet our team member, my own mum, Vivienne!
Viv Joined the team in July 2020 and has an amazing relationships with our regular clients; be it dog walking, pet/house sitting or our Doggy Day Trips.
Who’s better to trust with your business than your own mum? Viv has 20+ years experience in the industry, volunteered with the rescue dogs back in the day & is naturally amazing with dogs - especially gaining their trust. I have had no one else take care of my dogs when I’ve been away.
On top of this, Viv's background includes working with race horses, living on farms with many different animals (pigs, horses, sheep) and is an experienced pet sitter, too.
Viv has had a number of different breeds of her own (Dobermann's, German Shepherds, Labradors to name a few) Most of which were rescued, and is very experienced.
Now Viv has Ted (Cocker spaniel x Poodle) & Nia (Beauceron) Nia came from Hilbrae, and after Nia had a near death experience, it became apparent that she suffers with Addison’s disease. Mum read up on addisons, as lots of vets don’t seem to understand it themselves too well, and she has become an expert in the field, with the vets now asking for her opinion!
"What can I say! I’ve never left my dogs with anyone other than family, but this is the most comfortable I’ve ever felt leaving my babies! Viv treated them like they were her own, and sent me the most beautiful pictures throughout to reassure me they were OK! Feel so lucky to have found Shropshire Canine Enrichment, feel like I can book trips away now without having to worry about the dogs! Amazing 🥰" - Paula Costello
Paul has a great relationship with both clients and dogs, and has proven to be a fantastic and reliable dog walker.
I can't just trust anybody, with my name/logo/business. It doesn't make sense to me when other companies can employ people they have only just met. I need to see they're capable enough with dogs that i trust them with. I need to know they have the same mindset that I do. Thankfully I got lucky with Paul.
Paul and I had previously worked together at Hilbrae rescue kennels and we became great friends. His dedication to the dogs and his passion to build bonds with them always stood out, and still does.
I have seen Paul work with lots of different breeds. He has owned and rescued many, including German Shepherds and English Bull Terriers, and today his baby is Casper the staffy who he adopted from Hilbrae.
"Cheryl and the team are the best EVER! I have a dog who doesn’t trust Humans but he has made a huge bond with Paul. 💕 Hugo my Dog went to a day care/hotel before but ended shaking in fear but now he barks with excitement to the point that the whole street know when he is going for a walk. Besides the dog walking Cheryl spends time taking rescue dogs on day trips. 💕 I can highly recommend Shropshire Canine Enrichment and wouldn’t Trust my dog with anybody else" 💕 - Michelle Roberts
Although Zoe is new to the team, I know her very well and I worked with Zoe in rescue kennels for years. I have witnessed first hand her natural talent and passion with dogs. Zoe has an ability to build trust in dogs that most would avoid and takes pride in helping the misunderstood.
Zoe is our reliable dog walker and pet sitter who will also be doing our Doggy Day Trips, too!
Zoe has experience personally in having Romanian rescues of her own, Leonbergers, Caucasian shepherds, Belgian Malinois , German shepherds and St. Bernards!
"An amazing company, I would recommend whole heartedly! Zoë is one of Doug’s favourite humans, he can’t wait for his walks every week with her and even better when she house sits Zoë took him and his sister Evie on a day trip too, they came back very happy and shattered!! Shropshire Canine go the extra mile helping dogs in rescue, you couldn’t ask for a more passionate group of people"
Another team member I have previously worked with in rescue, I know what a hard working and dedicated animal lover Julie is. Julie has a fabulous reputation in the dog world and like all of the team is a kind and caring professional.
With a big and beautiful German Shepherd at home and also being a horse owner, Julie brings even more experience to the team!
Julie opened up the Bridgnorth / Worfield area and is already at full capacity.
Emily and I.. you guessed it! worked in rescue together for a couple of years
Emily is super caring and passionate about animals and welfare, always striving to help any in need. Emily befriended many dogs that would be considered difficult and creates great relationships with dogs she works with.
Covering all of Telford but preferably Shawbirch area
Since starting my business, I have made many friends in the dog professional world, Kate being one of them. Kate runs her own successful dog care business with a great reputation, and now we collaborate!
As our main "Pop in" lady, Kate offers those that don't need/want walks, enriching visits and toilet breaks to break up their day and provide some friendly company. Kate is super experienced with other animals such as reptiles, too.
Competition happens at the bottom, Collaborations happen at the top.
