RESIDENTIAL DOG TRAINING
Our ‘Calmness Leads to Reward’ – Residential Dog Training Programme is a comprehensive dog training and behaviour programme conducted in house over a 3 week period at our Dog Guru Training & Behaviour Centre.
This programme is aimed at those owners who simply do not have enough free time to attend our scheduled obedience classes and workshops.
Whilst in our care your dog will live with us in our home with our family and will be fully integrated and trained alongside our own Copperbirch Labradors as a member of our household.
We only take one residential pupil for training at a time to ensure your dog gets our full attention.
Our training sessions are carried out over a 7 day week and your dog’s daily training sessions will involve trips to the park and the town for socialisation education. We teach your dog to be calm and relaxed everywhere they go.
“CALMNESS LEADS TO REWARD”
During your dog’s stay we will teach, train and communicate with them using our uniquely developed “Calmness Leads to Reward” © formula for dog training & behaviour. This is a holistic method which ensures that the partnership of dog and owner is balanced, whole and complete.
“Calmness Leads to Reward” © is a positive training method which is based on timely, consistent, reward without the need for tit-bits or gadgets. We believe that you should be able to communicate with your dog because of the bond that you build through mutual love and respect using a true understanding of animal psychology and not because you are bribing it with food.
YOUR EXPECTATIONS – OUR SET STANDARD
Our objective is to transform your dog’s behaviour, we want your dog to be a loving calm family member that understands the social boundaries so that both of you can have a future stress free relationship.
Each of our residential training programmes are tailor made to suit you and your dog’s individual requirements, however we have listed below some of the skills your dog will learn during their 3 week stay with us.
- We will teach your dog to be calm and balanced for your future stress free relationship. In order to do this we teach them the necessary obedience skills of Sit & Stay
- Walk to heel on the lead without pulling.
- Calm behaviour when greeting.
- Calm behaviour in/out of car.
- Recall (with whistle) – optional.
- All of the above with natural and realistic distractions.
During your dog’s 3 week stay we will provide you with weekly progress videos to show you how they are getting along with their training.
Upon graduation, you will be given a full demonstration of your dog’s newly learned calmness and obedience skills.
It is then expected that owners spend a couple of hours following this demonstration in order to learn the new communication and tuition procedures we have taught your dog.
We will also identify and eliminate the factors within your home that contributed to your dogs unwanted behaviour issues, make suggestions and advise on some changes you need to make to their home environment. We will teach you how to provide structure and set new positive boundaries to continue the successes in your new life together.

A £195 deposit per dog via bank transfer is required to secure your booking.
