Home based training
The best part about our residential training programmes, is that it's unique to you and your dog!
Your dog can either come to live with one of our trainers in their homes as part of the family, or you can come and learn alongside your dog each day!
We provide a completely bespoke training programme for your dog, transforming their behaviour in as little as 2 weeks. All of our training takes place out on location in the environments you need the training to work.
Our team of expert trainers offer a caring, secure, positive and safe environment for your family dog and only use positive training methods. This means that your pup is treated as part of the family and receives the same love and attention they would at home.
Our trainers live in Surrey, Hampshire, Sussex & Staffordshire. With a Nationwide and European collection service available
Deciding who to trust
As trainers and dog owners ourselves, we understand how important it is to find someone you trust to care for your family dog
Throughout your dog's stay, receive regular photo & video updates and have daily contact with your trainer so that you have peace of mind that your dog is being well cared for, having fun and receiving training tailored to their needs
Intensive training is perfect for owners who want to ensure they are getting the training right and want the benefit of expert guidance from start to end.
You shouldn't feel an ounce of guilt about seeking help for your dog. You are being a responsible dog owner, and both you and your dog will reap the rewards of having excellent training in place.

The programmes we offer
Our fully immersive residential puppy programme is designed to give your puppy the very best start in life.
We'll teach them essential skills and good manners, at an age when they are most receptive to learning (from 8 weeks old) as well as ensure their early socialisation needs are met (meeting dogs, people, animals, traffic, cafes etc) so that they are better equipped for dealing with new situations in adulthood.
Our puppy training programme is tailored to meet the needs of each individual dog, as no two puppies are ever the same! Remember, puppies only grow into their bad habits, not out of them.
The ideal age to start training is before 6 months! Before this age we can teach all of the essential obedience skills, grow your pups social skills and put them on the right path to grow into a well mannered adult dog
Adult Dog Training
Whether you have an annoying adolescent dog, or an adult dog with bad habits, we can customise a training programme to suit your needs
It's never too late to train your dog, but getting on top of problem behaviours as promptly as possible will ensure unwanted behaviours don't become lifelong habits.
Our trainers can quickly help to get on top of lead pulling, recall, jumping, biting, barking, settling, lunging at cars/joggers, training around cats/livestock, behaviour around children, plus basic to advanced training and distraction proofing in many different busy environments
We also work with owner trained assistance dogs, guiding your dog through their obedience training, teaching tasks and public access training. We can even work with dogs alongside wheelchairs and adapt the training to your specific needs
Walking a reactive dog can be an incredibly stressful experience. Whether it's barking, lunging on the lead, or growling at other dogs, these challenging behaviours can make walking a challenge and is something that many owners would prefer to avoid
Our residential stays create a positive learning experience for your dog. We will work together to establish clear communication and cues, as well as help your dog to grow their self-control.
We can improve impulse control and problem solving abilities while positively changing your dog's emotional response to triggers.
The ultimate goal of our training is to create long-term behaviour change through increased focus, engagement and trust between you and your dog

Every dog is different based on their age, breed, personality, previous learning history and environment.
They all learn at very different paces and no two dogs can be compared, so it's impossible to make any guarantee about your dog's training progress
What we can guarantee is that we'll match your dog to their best suited trainer, create a customised training plan that is bespoke to your dog's needs and provide you with an incredible aftercare package.
Our aftercare package is designed to provide you and your family with the hands on training, transfer of knowledge and ongoing support you need for long term success. Attending your lessons with your trainer will determine if the training successfully transfers to you, aswell as your ongoing commitment to their daily training
