Residential Dog Training

Do you struggle to keep your dog’s attention?

Is your puppy displaying sudden unwanted behaviours?

Would you like your pet to learn to be sociable in a safe space?

Whether you’re adopting a dog for the first time, or you have found puppyhood to be more challenging than anticipated, our residential dog training programmes are here to empower dog owners with professional and kind methods. We train dogs and people to communicate effectively and efficiently with one another. We create respect, understanding and confidence in a private setting.

What is residential dog training?

Residential dog training is when a dog comes to board and train with us for a number of weeks, usually when their owners are on holiday. During that time we spend two -4 hours each day training dogs and puppies to a high standard and develop a routine that fits their individual personality, breed requirements and your home life.

Our courses are 2-6 weeks in duration. Residential pups learn listening skills, manners, and obedience in a loving home surrounded by our balanced and sociable pack of regular visiting dogs. They’re brilliant animals, many of which have already attended our training programme. They love to help new dogs settle in and play!

NEW! Option 1: Day Care + Training

We have two training options. The first is doggy day care + training which with dedicates one to one training time during the day. This is ideal if you are balancing work and family life. The programme consists of 5 days in a row of training, with evenings and weekends off so you can enjoy time with your dog. At the end of each week you will be invited to a one to one training session to learn your dog’s new skills, commands and a routine specific to their needs. The training is designed to inspire confidence and understanding for all owners. Connecting with your dog is a very empowering experience.

Option 2: Overnight boarding & training (recommended)

Overnight boarding allows your trainer to see the puppy through a 24 hour cycle and fully integrate them within the pack. This makes training much more efficient and usually shows the best results. Your dog or puppy will be trained in our home and on walks to develop their confidence, understanding and attention span. Dogs can learn a huge number of commands depending on the duration of their stay.

Learn how to continue your dog’s training at home

At the end of your dog’s training, we’ll invite you to attend some one-to-one classes to learn your dog’s new habits and how to keep building their skills at home. It’s crucial that you feel confident, calm and connected to your dog. You’ll be able to watch demonstrations, ask questions and wil be provided with a personalised training plan to take home.

Does my dog qualify?

Your dog must have a good temperament and have no history of aggression or biting people/other dogs. Ideally they will be upwards of 12 weeks old, fully vaccinated and already used to the basics of living in a home environment.

All you need to do is get in touch to register your dog’s details. You’ll be invited to attend a meet and greet and trial day to see how your pup gets on before committing to our programme.

Terms and Conditions

Terms & conditions apply. Not suitable for dogs with any type of aggression or destructive behaviours. Dogs are unpredictable by nature. We cannot guarantee that your dog’s behaviour will improve, nor can we guarantee that your dog won’t revert back to old behaviours once they return home. ​The training Jarvis Dog Boarding puts in place is designed to be foundations only to help you and your dog learn a new routine, and we will not return a fully trained dog to you. You must be willing and able to commit to carrying on with the training that is put in place by Jarvis Dog Boarding. You can achieve this by attending the aftercare that is available to you, or by paying a local trainer to help you continue to train your pet. The training results achieved by each dog depend on the individual animal’s abilities as well as the amount of time spent attending training.
