What is Residential Dog Training ?


Residential dog training is where you leave your dog with us & we spend several weeks training your beloved best friend, if your dog has behavioural issues we counter condition them to fix these issues it could be dog on dog aggression, dog to human aggression, fearfulness, lunging on lead, poor focus or poor recall we are here to help you get back on track with your best friend.

Residential dog training is also for training your personal protection dog providing they have the correct temperament for the training as there is nothing more dangerous then an unstable protection dog.
