Our anxious, reactive dog is actually excited to go there and seems to enjoy his time at Royvon, and the staff are all so lovely and understanding of him. We have the ultimate peace of mind when we need to travel without our dog, knowing that he’s at Royvon and we don’t need to worry about him, and really appreciate the daily reports and photos. Thank you again to all of the team for taking such good care of our little guy!Val WilliamsVal Williams ★★★★★ We own a somewhat lunatic lurcher called Jude. The staff at Royvon (Merthyr Tydfil) are amazing with him and he absolutely loves it there. We in turn love seeing the photos of him enjoying himself - from the very first time he stayed there we found it so reassuring to see him having fun.Response from the ownerThank you for the great five star review Val! We love having Jude too so the feeling is mutual! Nawaf AKNawaf AK ★★★★★ Excellent service and they really do care for dogs. They supported us with our nervous dog and accommodated his needs.

Callum MackayCallum Mackay ★★★★★ Response from the ownerThank for your five star review, it means a lot to us! Nicola SchmidtNicola Schmidt ★★★★★ My dog recently stayed for a mini break with Royvon but prior to this he had been to some training sessions and a couple of day care sessions. Alfie is 7 and had actually never been away from home before so I felt really nervous about leaving him. I really needn’t have been. All the staff at Royvon are just so lovely. Every time I’ve been there they have always seemed calm, professional, friendly and there’s a great atmosphere. Most importantly they all love dogs and are dedicated to making them feel at home for their stay. I’m glad to have found them, and feel comfortable leaving Alfie in their competent care.Response from the ownerThank you so much for your really positive and caring review, it really means a lot to us that you took time to write it. We are very pleased to be able to create an environment where you and Alfie both feel comfortable. Esther BreithoffEsther Breithoff ★★★★★ We love Royvon! They are amazing with my anxious and reactive rescue dog Lui. The staff is prpfessional, knowledgeable and caring and give imperfectly perfect dogs like Lui a chance. I know he's in the best of hands when he's at Royvon, which gives me real peace of mind when I'm away. Thank you team Royvon!Response from the ownerThank you for your heartfelt review. We love dogs of all personalities and Lui is fab! sian Macdonaldsian Macdonald ★★★★★ My labrador suffers separation anxiety generally but squeals with excitement when I turn into Royvon. Her photos sent during her stay show her happily exercising & any requested training has a positive effect. I go on holiday feeling she’s well looked afterResponse from the ownerWe love hearing that dogs are so happy to arrive at Royvon, they are our favourite reviewers. Given they can't type a review on Google we are very appreciative of you spending the time to share her feelings and leave a five star review! Selma NoronhaSelma Noronha ★★★★★ Royvon really took excellent care for my dog whilst I was away. I was updated with lots of videos and photos which kept me reassured. It was evident that my dog who is really anxious and would not normally stay with unknown people, was very happy there and I can see his confidence growing. Mimi was superb with my dog, showed a lot of affection and care and very patient towards him.The whole experience was excellent . and I would definitely recommend Royvon. Would use them every time as I know my dog is in the best of care. I cannot thank Mimi and the team enough for looking after him so well and carrying out some training. Very professional team.Response from the ownerThank you very for much such a great review. The reassurance that you express about knowing your dog is in the best of care means so much to us. If you are happy to recommend us to friends, you can find out more about our referral system and earn credit for future bookings. Remy SeakinsRemy Seakins ★★★★★ Response from the ownerThank you for five gold stars, they mean a lot! Gary WilsonGary Wilson ★★★★★ First time using a kennel for us and glad we chose Royvon. We had booked a 3 week behavioural training course with Romeo whilst we were on holiday over Christmas and New Year. We had regular WhatsApp videos and daily updates on progress. It was comforting to see him settled and playing with other dogs. Would recommend.Response from the ownerThank you so much for your five star review and for trusting us with your dog while you were away. We hope the continued owner training helps to embed the progress made too. Shanti VenkateshShanti Venkatesh ★★★★★ Our three and a half year old Border Collie, Flossy had not been socialised much, being a Covid puppy and was the typical Border Collie lunging at cars and other big vehicles, anxious during walks, at sounds and sights, when we decided to enroll him for the three-week residential behavioural training (which also happened to coincide conveniently with our holiday!)We had the initial assessment session with Romeo who could straight away gauge Flossy's anxious nature and reassured us that he would be able to work with Flossy. Romeo has been wonderful with Flossy and the daily videos that he sent during the three-week period kept us up-to-date with Flossy's progress. We are indeed happy to have found a place like Royvon with such dedicated, professional and friendly people like Romeo with whom we can confidently leave our beloved boy.When we went to pick up Flossy after three weeks, needless to say he gave us a rousing welcome but during the 1-2-1 session that followed we could see a marked change in his behaviour around cars and he was at a stage where we could actually walk around traffic. Of course now we have to be trained to carry on the hard work that Romeo and Flossy had put in! And will be continuing with a few more sessions with Romeo.Fact is Romeo is very understanding of the dog's needs (and ours). He is an excellent trainer, very loving to the dog. When we took Flossy for his next 1-2-1 session after a couple of days of bringing him home, we were wondering how he would react to going back to Royvon. Would he like to go back? would he not? But the minute he saw Romeo, he went straight to him, wagging his tail happily!! That sealed it for us. Royvon is a wonderful place where your dogs will be cared for with love.Response from the ownerWe can't thank you enough for this great recommendation, including Flossy's wagging tail for Romeo which says it all! We look forward to seeing your for your follow-up 1-2-1 sessions. Chris CoxChris Cox ★★★★★ Very friendly staff.There is no better place for your dogs' training or to stay with safe luxury kennelsResponse from the ownerThank you so much for this great review, the aspects you have picked up on all mean a lot to us. Berfu GüvenBerfu Güven ★★★★★ We found an amazing place in London that we really feel good about for our son, King🐾👑When it became clear we’d be going to Turkey for the New Year holiday, our first task was to find a place to safely leave him. In Royvon the reservation process is online and their digital infrastructure is excellent. We personally visited their facility in Esher;the accommodations are spotless and spacious, the play areas are a lot of fun, there’s a chance for a forest walk every day, playtimes are great, and the team is amazing. What more could we ask for? Our son, Ateş, even said, ‘Mom, I wish I were a dog so I could stay with King.’ We left our son in capable hands, and we felt at ease, during the holiday, every day, they sent an email and photos about him.. And we had a lovely reunion today, He was so happy🐾We are so glad to meet Darren, Hannah and they are excellent team..Thanks Royvon for making our son feel at home🤩🐾Response from the ownerThank you so much for an amazing review for lovely King's stay, we are so pleased you chose Royvon for boarding and look forward to welcoming you all back next time you are going away. Daniel GierhartDaniel Gierhart ★★★★★ We have a North Macedonian rescue that we've had for 3 years and have struggled with training because he is very reactive towards cars (and anything else that moves) and not very food motivated. We tried multiple trainers and various techniques but still we hadn't found the right thing for our pup. We decided to look at residential training programmes and based on our interaction with Royvon and the reviews we booked Rozzie onto the 21 day programme with Charlie.Charlie and the team at Royvon were simply amazing. Really great updates every day which helped give us comfort and insight into how Rozzie was progressing. Rozzie took a while to settle in and wasn't eating at first, however the team kept us updated and tried some different things and within a day or two it was much better.In terms of the residential training programme, we very much went into it with cautious optimism, as we know Rozzie can be stubborn. It took a while to make progress with Rozzie, but after lots of patience, perseverance, love and care Charlie managed to break through and make some great progress. Charlie also recognised Rozzie may have a medical issue and gave us some great suggested next steps which have really helped Rozzie and we can't think Charlie enough for her insight into this.The follow on sessions with Charlie have been really good. Charlie is a great teacher and Rozzie has a special bond with her (he's always excited to see her). We are making really good progress and understand so much more about our dog, who is noticeably happier, more confident and is now comfortable taking food during training (and pretty much all the time) which has made making progress much easier.We've struggled feeling comfortable leaving Rozzie whilst away but Royvon were amazing and Rozzie is looking forward to his future holidays and continued training there.If you're considering the Residential Training programme, don't hesitate. The team at Royvon are true professionals and take the eestcare of dogs, so you can be safe knowing your dog will be in incredibly safe, caring, knowledgable hands and will have a great time.A final thank you to Charlie from Rozzie who is currently trying to find chicken in a tree whilst ignoring the mean cars driving by too quickly.Response from the ownerThank you so much for this heartfelt review from you and Rozzie, covering all of the amazing things that can happen with residential dog training. We do this because we know what a difference enriching training can make to a dog's happiness and fulfillment in life, Rozzie's experience in a great example of this. We look forward to seeing you back in the future. Joanne SavoryJoanne Savory ★★★★★ Romeo answered all our questions and helped us to practice techniques that our dog had learnt in trainingResponse from the ownerThank you for taking the time to leave a lovely five star review for Romeo and Royvon. Sophie PangSophie Pang ★★★★★ We are overjoyed with the remarkable progress Bella has made during her 3-week intensive course with Romeo at Royvon! Our 3.5-year-old nervous and reactive dog has undergone a transformative journey, becoming more confident and well-behaved. Romeo's expertise not only benefited Bella but also equipped us with valuable insights into managing situations and enhancing her overall demeanour.Bella now walks beautifully on a lead, and even her fear of the hoover has vanished. While we still recognise there's a long way to go, Romeo and the Royvon team have provided us with a fantastic kickstart on our journey to understanding and managing a nervous and reactive dog. Their consistent updates during Bella's stay reassured us, emphasising her positive development as a priority.We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Romeo, the team, and Royvon for their dedication. We look forward to continuing our journey with them, confident that we are on the right path to becoming the best possible dog owners for Bella. Highly recommended!Response from the ownerWe can't express how much this review means to us and the important work that we do to help dogs of all personalities to live a happy life, whether it's anxiety around people, or fear of the hoover. Thank you for taking the time to leave a great review for Bella's training and we will pass on your lovely words to Romeo.

Paloma Zozaya GorostizaPaloma Zozaya Gorostiza ★★★★★ Charlie was incredible in the caring, affectionate and thorough way she trained Lola during her three week residential course. Charlie sent us daily videos, reports and updates, and we've got a very happy, calm dog back, we are delighted.

IanIan ★★★★★ Before finding Royvon we had tried lots of professional training establishments, in an attempt to calm his aggressive behaviour towards other dogs, for our 4 year old border collie. Nothing had worked, but thankfully the training schedule and dedication of staff ( in particular Romeo) has worked wonders on not only our Collie but also us!We had Royvon recommend to us and I have absolutely no hesitation in thoroughly recommending them to others too. They are simply excellent.Response from the ownerThank you so much for a great five star review. We are really happy to hear how our residential training has made such a difference.

Ecem DibekEcem Dibek ★★★★★ We left our 2 year old male Labrador at Royvon for 3 weeks residential training and a few other short stays. We didn't need to worry during his stay, as Royvon team has sent us daily updates of him including pictures and videos. The team at Royvon are professionals and their facilities are first class.During Bailey's stay, his trainer was Charlie, who provided us with the comprehensive training reports and videos. She is very positive and has reward based training techniques, which helped us understand better how to manage Bailey's excitement and reactivity in certain occasions.Bailey is every time happy and excited to visit Royvon and his need are well met during his stay.I would definitely recommend Royvon Esher and I am more than happy to book for Bailey again.Response from the ownerThank you very much for this great five star review for Bailey's training at Royvon, especially your feedback for Charlie.We are really happy to hear you would recommend us, keep an eye out for news of our referrals scheme launching very soon so that you can tell Bailey's friends about Royvon and earn rewards!
