If you have a dog that cannot be relied upon to come when you call, the thought of being about to visit a park or beach without keeping your dog on a lead may feel like a distant dream. This restricts where you can go together, how much fun your dog can have playing and the level of social interaction they can have with other dogs. It also has the potential to cause anxiety in owners who cannot predict how their dog will behave in different environments.
The Royvon recall programme focuses on holding your dog’s attention so that you can trust them to stop whatever train of thought or action they are following and
return to you with enthusiasm, regardless of where you are. Over six weeks we will work with you to progress recall through weekly 1-2-1 dog training sessions, video tutorials and additional individual input in your private WhatsApp training updates group.
It is an essential part of a dog’s development to experience socialisation and get used to different environments and how unpredictable places, people and other dogs can be. These social skills help to prevent behavioural issues developing as they have the confidence they can cope in different scenarios. When a dog doesn’t know how to behave they can react unpredictably themselves and this can be a cause of great anxiety for owners.
Unfortunately, the global pandemic has meant that many adolescent puppies haven’t been able to learn these skills at the correct stage of their development. The aim of this socialisation programme is to help them to gain confidence, enjoy safe and enriching socialising and learn basic obedience skills at the same time.
Aimed at puppies from five months to 10 months, our 1-2-1 dog trainers will work with your puppy over a week or two weeks on a residential basis at our secure site at Royvon and receive intensive positive rewards-based training. As with all Royvon programmes, it is essential that owners receive training too and departure day will include an owner training session with a follow-up session a week later.
