Puppy Parties – This is a good opportunity for your puppy to meet other dogs. We believe puppies should learn that they cannot expect to play with every dog, both as a puppy and as an adult dog. We teach our puppy owners how to teach their puppy to manage their own expectations of when safe play is going to take place. In our puppy party sessions, we include recall training and focus so that play sessions are managed correctly which helps your puppy to follow instructions in the future when more distractions are available. Our puppy party sessions are 30 minutes at a cost of £10 per session held each Monday, Wednesday and Fridays but we will be including weekends in the near future. The sessions are offered on a pay as you go system.
Puppy Day School – Ideal for owners who want their puppy to develop while they are working and want to ensure their puppies are content with other humans, other dogs, and being on their own. Available 7 days per week on the pay as you go basis of £35, but we offer many other options with a form of ongoing commitment.
Residential Puppy Life Skills – This option includes one or two weeks of s residential training.

It also includes owner training before your puppy leaves us, and we tailor every package to suit each individual family’s needs.

PUPPY TRAINING SUCCESS!
The number one aim of our puppy training in Esher is to help prevent puppy training failure! We often see a puppy is taken to a weekly class, where they’re engaged and learning, but at home, the training is all but forgotten until the next class. What they need is for pup and owner to understand the small things that really help them succeed. And at Royvon, we make it fun and show you both that training can be surprisingly straightforward!
We highly recommend that new puppy owners find the right training for them early on. As mentioned, the first 100 days really are crucial! You don’t need to accept a badly behaved pup. Our programmes show you how you can make small changes to a happier outcome and a well-trained dog. Soon, you’ll find things become easier day by day. Before you know it, your puppy has grown into a dog the whole family can be proud of, and you’ve become the pet parent you’ve always aspired to be!
THE PUPPY TRAINING ESHER TEAM
Finally, at Royvon Esher, you’ll have a whole team of dedicated and qualified staff behind you who want to see your puppy succeed! Meet some of them here:
Our Managing Director Darren carries out your home consultations. He has trained hundreds if not thousands of dogs and wants to help as many pet parents as possible train and enjoy their puppies!
Charlie has studied canine care, behaviour, psychology and puppy socialisation and has a desire to learn more through up to date learning resources, additional courses and IMDT programs, with the aim of becoming IMDT registered.
As a puppy trainer, she knows the importance of teaching positive behaviours and good manners as soon as possible. Using fun learning games, correcting the right behaviours and proper socialisation from a young age will help them to grow up into confident, motivated and happy dogs.
She believes by having both a scientific and compassionate understanding of the dog’s mind and with the use of positive and fun training techniques that focus on rewards and utilising a dog’s natural instincts, is the key to gaining a strong bond and a mutually beneficial relationship with our dogs.
So, if you’d like to find the puppy training solution that works for you and your family, we’d love to discuss more. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch today.
THE ROYVON STORY
A TRUE FAMILY BUSINESS
It’s not uncommon for sons to follow in their father’s footsteps. Here’s the story of a family who has established a great reputation as experts in the dog training and boarding world!
From 1954 Will John taught his son Roy all there was to know about German Shepherds. In the early days, it was a hobby, but after Roy met his wife-to-be Yvonne, they decided to turn their hobby into a business. In 1959 Royvon was born! They both shared the love and admiration of the German Shepherd breed, judging all over the world. Together they developed the facility in the South Wales valleys that was Royvon’s founding location.
The Royvon story isn’t all joy and triumph, as in 1981 there was a tragic car accident where Yvonne and son Darren were seriously injured and Roy lost his life at just 43 years of age. The years that followed were understandably extremely hard for the family and the Royvon business suffered as a result. The extent nearly led to bankruptcy but the family’s love of passion for each other and their dogs was the saviour and Royvon was to triumph once again.
Darren was only 9 when the accident happened. However, his father instilled the passion for the business in him. As a result, Roy’s legacy lived on through Darren, Yvonne, and many associates that held Roy in such high regard. Darren often talks about the support he received from ‘dog people’ who constantly told him stories about how respected his father was and how great a ‘dog man’ he was.
A child being responsible for a German Shepherd is a big deal but Darren’s mam was sure that Darren was responsible enough to get his very own at 10 years old! On 25th December 1982, a puppy who’s name turned out to be ‘Merry’ (Merry Christmas) ran through the Royvon house straight to Darren and from that day onwards they were best friends.
Merry wasn’t a regular German Shepherd puppy she had the best German lines as Roy & Yvonne importing the best Germany had to offer and went to win top honours in both the show ring and obedience competitions. The two were inseparable, only by school – but all other times were playing together and learning in preparation for the weekend’s competitions. Who was to know that these events were the basis for Darren’s lifetime successful career in dog training?
Developing the business
The entrepreneur in Roy was embedded in his son Darren. Every aspect of Royvon life excited him, and he had the drive to push the business to become as successful as possible. In this case, success means helping as many dog owners as possible to resolve the challenges they face with their dogs behaviours! Darren made a conscious effort in his 20s to develop the business and employ trainers at his level so that more people can learn of the knowledge that had been gained from his father and his father before him.
Darren started off by practicing his dog training skills as a teenage boy on dogs staying at Royvon’s boarding kennels. It turned out that owners were literally ‘over the moon’ about what a young lad could do to turn their dog into a fully trained pooch while they were away on holiday!
It was soon established by Darren that it was owner training that was really needed for well-trained dogs, so that’s where his efforts were diverted so that the programme could be as helpful as possible to Royvon’s customers. Darren’s drive was even more fueled by large numbers of dog owners travelling the length and breadth of the country so that their dogs could go through the Royvon programme.
Nowadays, Royvon has expanded from the first location in Merthyr Tydfil, to include sites in Warwickshire and Surrey. And now, technology allows owners to have a totally transparent experience. All the work we do with our guests is online and available for owners to see their dog’s progress. Online training is also available for owners to learn virtually while our expert trainers work with their dogs, opening our method up to even more people.
Although tragedy had such an impact in the Royvon story, the story is a happy one with much love and passion to the life that we have been given. Dogs make many families happy and the Royvon family is one that will always be indebted to the love that has been received by our dogs over the years.
