Residential Board and Train Programmes

Welcome to our dog training hotel

Jarvis Dog Whisperer – Boarding and Training is the leading luxury residential dog training facility in Southampton. We provide one of the fastest, intensive dog training methods available in the UK with dogs learning on average 10-15 commands, good manners, routine and house training within as little as 10 days.

We specialise in teaching family dogs manners, focus and calm behaviour so that you can fully enjoy your relationship for the next 15 years. 

Puppies upwards of 12 weeks board and train as part of our unique 24 Hour Cycle™ programme where they learn fantastic life skills through both one to one sessions with Jarvis and absorbing calm energy and social skills from our balanced pack.

Our service is popular with families who want to save time in the training process or who understand the many benefits that come with working privately with a professional trainer.

If you are finding dog training is becoming chaotic, stressful or unrewarding we also resolve problem behaviours and allow committed owners to take back control.

We believe all dogs can be good dogs. They just need the right communication in place to succeed.

See Our Puppy Training Results

Meet Bella the 5 month old Cockapoo. A severe ear infection and gastro complications in her formative months had prevented her from learning consistently at home. After recovery, she barely knew her own name and had developed several problematic behaviours. Bella struggled with house training, had limited attention span and needed to learn manners around older dogs. Her owners wanted a dog that would be good at listening. Here she is showing off a few of her new skills after a 14 day programme. Well done Bella!

Teacup Terrier Training

Teddy the 6 month old Teacup Yorkie struggled with house training, lunging and barking as well as zero attention span whether at home or on the go. He was developing fearfulness especially in the car as well as not knowing how to play appropriately with other dogs. His family wanted lots of commands, with a focus on recall to feel comfortable that he would be as confident as any larger breed in our 15 day programme.

Testimonials

“From the moment that Jarvis entered, Monty was a different dog.  We had struggled with him jumping up, walking on the lead and chasing birds for nearly 2 years.  Jarvis taught us how to address all these behaviours and showed us how to get the best out of Monty.  Not only did she train us as owners but now Monty is a different dog.  Finally we can walk him off the lead; he is calmer in the house and listens to us so much more. We could not have done any of it without Jarvis’ approach and whispering skills.  We now have the dog we always wanted and we can’t thank Jarvis enough for helping us to achieve this.”

Rebecca & Monty the Cocker Spaniel 2016

“Our dog Riley is generally an obedient boy, but when it came to walking on a lead it was a different matter. Instead of walking nicely to heel he acted like a Husky pulling a sled.
We’d tried all sorts of things to remedy it but hadn’t had much luck. Jarvis got a different result though and within a short time of meeting her, Riley was trotting along at her side, with his lead held loosely in her fingers. She definitely has some sort of telepathy with the dogs she whispers to, by watching, listening and understanding what they’re telling her.”

Mark, Jennifer & Riley the Collie cross 2014

“Jarvis has been helping us with our slightly unruly dog Ralph. With her help, we’ve learned how to read his behaviour and to modify our own to make dog walks a much more pleasurable experience… Our dogs are so much happier now we are more confident with our behaviour. Plus Ralphie loves her. Really loves her.”

George, Sarah & Ralphie 2017

Terms and Conditions

Terms & conditions apply. All dogs are considered on an individual basis for suitability. Dogs are unpredictable by nature.

We will not return a fully trained dog to you. You must be prepared to commit to continuing training that is put in place by Jarvis Dog Whisperer Boarding & Training at home. You can achieve this by attending the aftercare that is available to you. The training results achieved by each dog depend on the individual animal’s abilities as well as the amount of time spent attending training available to you.
