Residential Training for Dogs



My ‘residential training' course places the focus solely on the development of your dog and is ideal for dogs of any age, for farm work and trialing. Based on a hill farm in the heart of the Lake District your dog will have access to a world class training environment.


I understand how important your dog is to you and the happiness and wellbeing of your dog is my number one priority. During its stay your dog will be individually kenneled and cared for as if it was my own, and will receive daily training and exercise to make sure their stay with me is as happy as possible and to ensure maximum performance.


Depending upon your dog's natural ability it will normally take at least one month of daily training to make any real progress. During this time I will send you regular progress updates, like videos, so you can enjoy your dog’s development with me. After the first month I will give you an honest assessment of your dog’s ability along with my recommendation about how to proceed. This may be further residential training and/or handler training. However what I will never do is continue to take your money to give further training to a dog that I genuinely believe not to have the ability to progress.
