Residential Dog Training

Transform Your Dog's Life with Our Exclusive Residential Training Experience

Residential dog training courses are offered on a very occasional basis. The way in which dogs learn does not lend itself to residential training. It is often irrelevant how much time a person spends training a dog for someone else, that dog still returns to the same living environment and with the same people who have no or few training skills and no ability to implement the dogs new learnt skills. On the few occasions concerning special circumstances that we agree to train your dog for you at our location, the duration of the course will be subject to negotiation, but will not be less than three weeks. This will be dependant on the type of dog and the problem behaviour (if any).The most important part of the course will be the lessons and the handover period once your dog has been trained. You will agree to have two lessons at your home address in the first two days after your pet is returned to you. You will have two lessons the following week of at least one hours duration each session, where the owner of the dog will attend. Members of household staff will not be accepted although extra lessons can be arranged where others may receive instructional training. In total you as the dogs owner are required to have at least five hours (five lessons) training handover as a minimum.

For the duration of the training period the dog will live in the home environment with other dogs, people, guests and normal environmental stimulus. The dogs will be exercised and trained in London’s public parks where there are many distractions present.

Training in a home environment, that is as similar as possible to the dogs own residence is the most realistic training environment. Learning to respond to commands regardless of distractions is vital in all cases.

Residential training starts from £2000 and is a tailored programme to suits you and your dog’s needs.

Wythall German Shepherd Dog Training Club

The trainers at Wythall German Shepherd Dog Training Club wanted some guidance with how we could work with dogs in a class environment that we were unable to accommodate due to their behaviour. Especially so we didn’t disrupt the calmer dogs.

Ross McCarty was asked to do some training with our trainers and a few of the dogs in the club that were struggling to stay calm in a class and were also aggressive when on lead out and about. Some of the dogs were only aggressive to other dogs, but a couple of the dogs did not cope well with people either.

Ross was more than accommodating in swapping the session around, putting the trainer’s session at the end, so owners could get away with their dogs (due to the heat) while the training was aimed at class structure.

The whole session was great. We had 8 problem / aggressive dogs enter the room and 8 relaxed dogs at the end of it, some were so comfortable they were drifting off to sleep.

It was a great mix of general theories and methods and also targeted one to one solutions to specific problems, all well managed between Ross and his colleague Vicky.

There was a relaxed atmosphere and everyone’s questions were welcomed and well answered.

Overall a brilliant session and some great ideas to take forward into our classes to help all the dogs, whether the ones that can react or the ones that don’t want to be reacted to.

The feedback from all who attended has been excellent!

Thank you

Thank You From

Four Paws Dog Training Club

Four Paws Dog Training Club would like to thank Ross for his teaching session which was very helpful to our trainers and Committee members. We asked Ross to talk to us about handling dogs who were disruptive. We were particularly interested in helping handlers with dogs who bark a lot in class.

Ross shared many ideas on managing the class differently, and on helping individual owners improve their dogs’ behaviour, and we have used this successfully. We found his interactive and informal manner very enjoyable and this helped us to relax and ask plenty of questions.  Ross was also able to assist in a particular case:  making an assessment of one of the dogs who attended our classes and giving specific behavioural advice.

The dog’s owner implemented Ross’s advice, which we reinforced in the class, and she now has a very well behaved dog.
