By helping you to feel confident and capable training your dog, we set in motion a lifetime connection between you. When your dog knows what to expect from you and what you expect from them, you have their undivided attention when you need it most. Recall can be relied upon even in busy environments, anxiety around other people is minimised and worries about socialising with other dogs are alleviated.
So many owners become resigned to the way their dog is, accepting that they cannot be taken to the places they would like to take them, that they cannot be let off-lead and they have grown used to poor behaviours that disrupt their household. Conflicting information on dog training has left them confused and worn-out, and their dogs don’t know what they have done wrong either. We have worked with dogs of all ages, breeds and personalities and know that with the right input, change will come.
Our secure sites sit amongst woodland that dogs who come to stay for our residential dog training programme enjoy exploring on walks. When dogs arrive at Royvon, whether they are excitable or nervous, we calm them down and help them settle quickly. Many owners take the opportunity of a residential dog training stay to take a holiday themselves while their dog enjoys safe, hotel-style accommodation, stimulating training and socialising where appropriate. You will receive regular updates through a private WhatsApp group so that you can see for yourself how your dog is doing, giving reassurance that the training is showing progress and helping the whole family while you are missing your dog. When it comes to collection time, after a happy reunion, you will be taken through a session to understand what your dog has been working on and give them the chance to demonstrate their new skills to you. This also marks the start of our on-going training to help you to continue the good work over the following months with our support to achieve the best results.
