Residential Dog Training Esher: Progressive Dog Training Methods

We know that owning a dog can be hard work! But, we all want our dogs to be happy and healthy. Above all, we love them like they’re a member of the family. However, sometimes it feels like things just aren’t working out. Your dog misbehaves, you can’t control them, and living with them becomes harder and harder. You feel bad, but your dog is embarrassing! You want to be proud of them and be able to take them out safely.

However, you struggle to train your dog yourself. Perhaps you lack the time, the skills, or your dog is too challenging. You see other owners training their dogs with ease and wish that was you. Does this sound familiar? It’s nothing to be ashamed of! Royvon offers our residential dog training Esher to combat these exact problems. We want every family to live in harmony with their dog, no matter the issues they may have. Our trainers completely understand your issues, and use their professional knowledge and experience to shape your dog into a pet you can be proud of!

How We Train Dogs On A Residential Programme

Residential Dog Training Esher: Our Programmes

The residential dog training programmes we offer in Esher are designed to give your dog a structured plan and deliver results. Our aim is to help dog owners have fun with their dogs and help them unlock their pups’ potential to be wonderful family pets, by implementing surprisingly small changes that make a big difference!

We have a stepped approach to help us determine the suitability of your dog and what programme we should use. This starts with a 1-hour assessment and then a completely complimentary overnight stay. Both of these steps help us come up with the goals that your dog should work towards during their stay with us.

Next up is their residential dog training stay! This is usually a three-week stay. So, if you’re going on holiday, it’s a perfect time! We work with them intensively to deliver the results you both need to live happy lives. Each dog is individual and we recognise this, working with every one in a unique way to get the best results.

Why not book an assessment with us?


Owner Training

After this, it’s owner handover. We show you what your dog has achieved during their stay with us, and you can take home a remarkably well-behaved dog, like you’ve never seen them before! We also offer owner training beyond your dog’s stay with us. On collection, you can experience an owner training session, and then you can take advantage of 3 group training sessions each week for up to 3 months. As long as the owner is engaged with the training, we provide unlimited support until your goals are achieved.

By working with us, your dog will have a happier life- and make your life happy as a result! Without our intensive programmes, these results just might not be possible, which is why we recommend residential dog training Esher so highly.

Our Success

Our residential dog training Esher is also designed to be successful for you and your dog! We want you to be able to take your dogs anywhere with you. Also, we want to improve or repair your relationship with your dog, which we understand can become strained when they’re misbehaving! Perhaps most importantly, we aim to deliver transformation. After your dog’s residential stay and the support we offer, you will be proud of them. You’ll also feel accomplished, with the knowledge you’ve done the best thing possible for your pet. Plus, you’ll become a far more confident dog handler and hopefully feel like you have the skills to help others!

At Royvon, we pride ourselves on transforming even the most anxious and misbehaving pooches. You might feel like there’s no hope, but anxiety and reactivity are best dealt with by a professional in this area. You don’t have to do it alone! We have the experience and knowledge to deal with all behavioural problems. So, you really don’t need to be embarrassed! Whatever issues you and your dog are having, we would love to help.


Meet Our Lovely Trainees


Our Residential Dog Training Esher Team 

We have an amazing team that delivers our residential dog training at Esher! Meet some of them here:


Romeo is the trainer that everybody loves! He’s our most experienced trainer who has worked at Royvon for 4 years. Romeo is a dog lover first and foremost with a deep passion for dog training. It’s more than a job. He describes his key skills as patience, persistence, and diplomacy and is always open-minded to new training techniques! We’ve got so many glowing reviews from owners about Romeo, which you can check out on our social media pages. Meet Romeo on our YouTube channel here.


Thanasis started his dog training journey when he was 26, attending a two-year-long dog training seminar and then working at a local dog club in Greece. From there he got into competitive dog sports (especially IPO), and started doing a lot of work as a decoy in protection and guard dog training. He’s attended a wide range of courses and seminars focusing on high-level obedience, bite work, and tracking training. Recently, he moved to London to join us at Royvon and focus on his passion for training dogs. He loves working with dogs to find their inner drive, then clearly marking their good behaviour with a clicker which motivates them to want to do more good work!

Our awesome animal carers

Our whole care team are highly experienced and hugely passionate about their roles! We pride ourselves on having a diverse team of all ages that all work together to pull out all the stops and care for each guest to the highest standard. For all of us at Royvon, care doesn’t just mean looking after your dog’s physical needs. It also means mental care! This takes the form of plenty of opportunities and time for cuddles, engagement and one on one time for each guest. So, with residential dog training Esher, you can be assured your pet is in the best possible hands!

Our Community

At Royvon Esher, we pride ourselves on our involvement with the community. Even better, they love working with us too! We often ask members of the community to help out with our trainees, to simulate normal, everyday situations. As an owner, you may avoid regular situations due to fearing embarrassment. This is never something to be ashamed of, but it’s something we need to address. And out lovely local community are happy to help!


We’re very fortunate to be close to both country and suburban areas when residential dog training at Esher. This helps us to simulate all types of situations when training your dog! We’re surrounded by woodland frequented by dog walkers, allowing your dog to get more used to having others around. The local Esher village is bustling with cafes and shops. This means that there are lots of people, children, traffic, and other distractions around. But don’t fear, this really helps the training process!

We know that every dog is different and learns at their own pace. So, our training starts onsite with few distractions. It then progresses to real-life environments at a controlled speed that’s individual to your dog. Being able to control the environment and speed is the key to success in residential training, and we’re lucky to be able to do it so well in Esher!

Within walking distance, we have parks, vets, shops, a train station, cafes, roads suitable to help stop lunging at cars, nature reserves, a golf course, leisure grounds, and more! So as you can see, we’re well equipped to train your dog, no matter their problem areas! We’re also very close to London, the M25 and A3, so we’re easily accessible no matter where you live. Why not book a tour to see for yourself?


Our Residential Dog Training Facility

We’re really proud of our purpose build accommodation at Royvon Esher! Our facilities include:

Individual accommodation that suits all types of dogs. This includes quieter areas for anxious or elderly dogs and places for high-energy dogs to be neighbours. We also several accommodation types, including our no-frills kennels with an attached run. They’ve been described as a Travelodge when compared to human hotels! Our Hilton equivalent would be our Pet Hotel. This has modern glass-fronted rooms, underfloor heating, and a nicer outlook, situated in a quieter area. All of our rooms have sleeping and exercise areas adjacent to each other. Also, we provide enrichment toys, treats and social interaction, not only during exercise but also in the dog’s rooms during cleaning and general checks, so your pet is never lonely!

Our training grounds are secured astroturfed areas that are covered by CCTV. All trainers have the relevant equipment available to help with their training and stimulate each individual to learn at their best. Our exercise field is also secure and CCTV covered. It even has a swimming pool for use during the summer months! It’s covered during the winter, but the dogs even love the covered pool for jumping and running over with each other. Please give us a call today to discuss your dog’s requirements, no matter what they may be.

Safety And Security

Our reception area is a purpose-built, modern room with full-time reception cover. We also have private meeting rooms available for owner consultations. Several team members live on-site, including our Managing Director Darren and his family. He overlooks all aspects of the residential dog training at Esher, to make sure every guest has a great stay!

Our site is fully enclosed and secure, with 24/7 CCTV coverage as well as a vehicle number plate recognition system at our gated entry. Your dog’s safety is our top concern, so we have put all of these measures in place to ensure they have a safe and secure stay with us.

Puppy Training

Get in touch with us

Puppy training is an important part of owning a dog and with the right input in the first few weeks of having a new puppy at home, you will hopefully never need the intensity of our residential dog training programme for behavioural problems. There is a key window for training when a puppy first arrives and we work with owners to develop their ability to train their puppy alongside building a trusting and loving
relationship, full of security.
