Residential Training

Residential or train and board offers a comfortable and nurturing environment where dogs can stay while receiving professional training.

Why choose residential training... 

Residential dog training, also known as board and train or in-home dog training, offers several benefits for both dogs and their owners. Here are some of the key advantages:

  1. Professional Expertise: With years of training experienced and qualifications I understand canine behaviour and training techniques. I can address specific issues and create customised training plans tailored to you and your dog's needs.

  2. Consistent Training: Dogs receive concentrated, consistent training over a period of time, typically ranging from 2 to 4 weeks. My focused training can lead to stronger and more effective results compared to sporadic training sessions.

  3. Socialisation: With my  residential training program I am able expose your dog to various environments, people, and other dogs in a controlled environment, promoting socialisation skills. This helps reduce fear, aggression, or anxiety in new situations.

  4. Consistency: I am able to maintain a consistent training routine and reinforce desired behaviors, which can be challenging for owners to achieve on their own due to busy schedules or inconsistent training methods.

  5. Behaviour Modification: Residential training is particularly effective for addressing behavior problems such as aggression, separation anxiety, excessive barking, or destructive tendencies. I am able to work closely with your dog to modify these behaviours.

  6. Time Efficiency: Owners save time and effort by entrusting their dogs to professional trainers like myself, allowing them to focus on other aspects of their lives while their pet receives dedicated training.

  7. Improved Communication: Trained dogs often have better communication with their owners, making them easier to handle and enjoy as companions. This improved understanding can strengthen the human-dog bond.

  8. Long-Term Success: Dogs that undergo residential training tend to retain their new behaviors and skills more effectively, reducing the likelihood of regression.

  9. Convenience: Some owners prefer not to deal with the day-to-day training process and find it more convenient to have their dog trained by professionals such as myself. 

  10. Peace of Mind: Knowing that your dog is in capable hands and receiving quality training can provide peace of mind for owners worried about their pet's behavior or safety.


While residential dog training can offer numerous benefits, it's essential for owners to stay involved in the process and continue reinforcement and training once their dog returns home to maintain the progress achieved during the program. This is reinforced by an active consultation at the end of the residential session with you to ensure future training is clear and manageable, meaning the results will last longer.



Residential training is done at my home in Chelsea. My space allows me to work on several different behaviours within my home. While my garden offers a breath of fresh air and allows toilet training. Pick up and drop off is available at an additional cost depending on location.

How long and How much

My pricing structure is flexible and is determined by individual training requirements and the duration of the stay. It starts at £350 per week, with a minimum stay requirement of one week. The longer your dog stays, the more comprehensive the training they can receive. Ideally, a stay of 2 to 4 weeks is recommended to achieve optimal training results

Dog Requirements 

I welcome almost all dogs of shapes, sizes and ages. However, this is discussed on a case by case basis depending on availability, training requirements. My only non-negotiable requirement is that your dog is fully vaccinated at the time of the stay, this is for both their safety and others. Please get in touch with your requirements and problem behaviours.
