One of the main advantages of residential dog training is that it provides your dog with consistency and routine in an environment that can be controlled. What this does is ensure that your dog’s training constantly moves forward as we remove all negative stimuli that cause your dog to lose focus at the start and then reintroduce the distractions in a controlled way as your dog’s training progresses. As we use positive reward based training our aim is that your dog learns to think for himself and realise what is required to get the reward.
The second and most important part of residential dog training is the transition of the dog from the residential training environment back into the real world. In order for this to be successful, the owner of the dog will need comprehensive training and a clear understanding of how they fit into making the second part of their dog’s journey a success. Our residential packages encompass a 2 hour hand over lesson before your dog departs plus a promise of ongoing dog and handler training and support for as long as you feel it is required.
