Residential Dog Training

We are happy to offer all this service with the emphasis being on providing individual care and attention to your dog. We have a three acre doggy play / training area. Places are strictly limited. Your dog will be exercised, played with and be greatly stimulated by the training centre staff making his or her stay a great experience. We offer a FREE assessment service for your dog at our premises, which takes about 1/2 hour. After the evaluation and assessment of your dog, if suitable, he/she can be booked into the Residential Dog Training Centre.

What do you get?

Three weeks of intensive training to your requirements

We train in the real world – that means we begin training out and about around the town. They learn how to:
  • walk nicely on a lead amongst many distractions
  • to sit at the pavement
  • how to sit and be calm while you are distracted

We go to the park to play and train sit, stays recalls and retrieves. Your dog will learn to sit to have his lead put on, how to go calmly out of the house, how to behave when visitors arrive. They also learn to walk on a loose lead, to come when called, sit, down and stay. Plus if there is anything specific that you want your dog to learn let me know and I will see if I can accommodate your requirements.

Our methods are based on Clicker Training  (timely, consistent, positive reinforcements)

  • We train dogs as efficiently, effectively & humanely as possible
  • We operate the highest quality accommodation
  • We provide extensive feedback throughout the training process
  • We teach the procedures for continued success
  • We offer unlimited post-training support

We are able to achieve the required standard with most dogs within three weeks. However if additional training was required it would be carried out free of charge with only standard boarding fees due.

How do we do it?

First we get you to fill in a behavioural questionnaire, which will give us what needs to be fixed using positive methods. We will also ask you to fill a diet questionnaire to check whether your dog is on the correct diet for calming your dog, as about 65% of dogs are eating the wrong food for them which can make them hyperactive and also inhibits the dog from learning at a fast rate.

The aim of dog training is to control the actions of the dog’s behaviour using positive reinforcement techniques, which accelerate the correct behaviour. This method is often called psychological training, which is based on the science of learning.

How do we train you?

  • Stage 1 –  we demonstrate exactly what your dog has been taught during the course. Many people are amazed at what can be achieved in such a short time
  • Stage 2 – we teach you how to achieve the same response from your dog. We do this on a one to one basis – along with your dog of course. Now is the time to ask questions and address any concerns. No question is too simple or foolish
  • Stage 3 – we provide you with a training programme and the knowledge needed to continue with your dogs tuition on returning home

Once you’ve channelled into a dog’s way of learning and understand the procedures for effective communication, your lives will be forever changed! Here’s how we do it -
