Our four-month residential programme consists of two phases. Firstly, phase one is the formal training for your dog. Here, they will be trained on a residential basis with Royvon for 21 days. These days are consecutive and include the weekends. Throughout this period, the dogs are trained consistently every day by one of our expert trainers who will focus on their individual needs and what they need to learn to overcome any issues. At the end of their stay with us, you will receive a handover training session. Here, you will learn the basics to carry on your dog’s great work at home. However, please note that, while this is a great opportunity to learn the basics, this is not enough time to learn everything you need to know, so most of your training will take place during phase two.
Phase two is where you will gain a deeper understanding of our method and how to use it yourself! You’ll learn how to handle and continue the training of your dog around normal day to day distractions in a public environment. These sessions with your dog do take place irrespective of you being there or not. However, we really encourage you to attend as often as possible. Royvon is unique because you have unlimited access to these owner training sessions for three months and one week after phase one is completed. We use these sessions to set up ‘real-life’ situations so that you and your dog know what to do in the various situations and environments that you will encounter at home and out and about.
Some customers take advantage of this offer and attend regularly for three months, which we encourage. But, other customers simply attend for a shorter time, depending on what they need. We strongly recommend that you attend regularly during the first month and then decide what you need going forward in month two and three. We are here to support you, no matter what your needs are. Training your dog and building a positive relationship with them is a lifelong process that is fun and rewarding! We’re just here to help you with that, and shape your dog into the pet of your dreams.
