Residential Dog Training

Our Residential dog training courses are designed to give your dog the best possible start to their training journey. Your dog will spend their time monitored, cared for and trained by our professional, passionate team. This provides round the clock attention and replicates your dog’s everyday life. We do not use a kennel service for our residential guests, we feel this creates an artificial environment of which inhibits our dog’s ability to learn. Owners will receive updates on their dog’s progress giving critical peace of mind that their dog is in the safest of hands.

Yorkshire Canine Academy offers a residential dog training program that will help to correct any aggression issues your dog may have. Our trainers are experienced and use non-harmful techniques to get the best results. Contact us today to find out more about our program.

Our Residential Dog Training Approach

Chances are, you’re looking for help because your dog has an unwanted or multiple unwanted behaviours. Every time your dog has opportunity to practice this bad behaviour, it gets stronger, this is what we refer to as a ‘behavioural bank account’. The first step of behaviour modification is blocking our dog’s ability to deposit into this bank account. The next step is to then open a new bank account of an alternate behaviour. Until the alternate bank account has greater equity than the old, the unwanted behaviour will still exist.

Sometimes, real life situations and environments don’t allow us to close that old unwanted bank account. Our training facility allows us to control and manage the environment to the point that we can almost immediately close the old bank account and start making deposits into the new. We then replicate the training in as many different environments as possible such as cafe’s, parks, train stations, beer gardens, shopping centres etc etc. This ensures your dog understands what they’ve been taught even under high distraction, real life situations.

Once the residential training comes to end your dog should have be out of the red and into the black ready for you to take the reigns and start your training journey with a clean slate. As well as behaviour modification the stay will include:

Lead Manners / Reliable Sit / Place Command / Crate Training / Recall / Controlled Play

We offer short term and long-term residential stays and have a curriculum for each; however, we can also offer custom length courses to fit around your schedule or holidays.

Residential Dog Training FAQs

We’re dog owners too, and we want to answer all of your questions about residential dog training. Here is what clients usually ask us!

Your new best friend can be trained to become an excellent companion, even if you’re not ready for a dog. We offer dog & puppy residential training from £700+VAT per week – all dogs that attend our facility receive warm and comfortable accommodations as well as expert care by professional dog trainers!

Although, you can book a residential course straight away, we would recommend undergoing a behaviour consultation first to ensure this is the best option for your dog. If you then choose to go ahead with a long-term stay (2-4 weeks), the price of consultation will be deducted from your course cost.

Residential training is an intensive training programme in which your dog stays with one of our professional trainers in their home for the duration of the course. This is a great option for dog’s who needs extra helping hand with the issues they’re facing.

Residential training offers a quick, efficient and ethical solution to your dogs behavioural issues. The course is condensed in order to suit those who may be under a time constraint. This type of programme is perfect for any dogs suffering from aggression, fearfulness, anxiety or reactivity. These issues need a skilled hand to yield effective long-lasting results.

That depends on the length of stay and issues your dog is experiencing. Every dog will learn basic lead and house manners as well as confidence and motivation building. Where applicable we’d also teach a reliable sit, a reliable place, recall, wait and stay.

As much as possible! As well as receiving frequent updates we can offer pre training advice and often invite owners to come and visit their dog mid stay and even join a group class where possible.

A 50% deposit is used to secure your booking, the remainder is then due on your scheduled start date.

We do not limit our training methodology to a singular ‘school of thought’, We utilise a wide range of training techniques in order to find the most effective, ethical and time efficient method for your dog.

We know that there are a number of reasons why this may have happened. Maybe you didn’t get enough environmental exposure, maybe your pup wasn’t properly proofed or trained after their course finished- no matter what the case may be we make sure all dogs go offsite as much they can (when ready) and also provide them with an owner education package which includes providing access to our online training guide so owners feel confident taking control.

We offer either a 5 week follow up programme where we see you and your dog once a week after your stay or a hand over weekend where we condense this into a shorter period of time if you’re travelling from afar. We also offer refresher stays for any dog that has completed residential stays with us, this is at a discounted rate and is great for owners that want to push their dogs training a bit further or just want peace of mind that their dog is in good hand when they go on holiday.

Case Study: Watch Kaiser’s 4 Week Residential Progress.

Kaiser came to us severely aggressive towards people. Over a 4 week period, we taught him that aggression is not only unacceptable but also unnecessary transforming him into a happier dog. Watch Kaiser the Malinois’ journey when he attended our 4-week residential dog training course.

I have had a fantastic experience with Yorkshire Canine Academy! The trainers are knowledgeable, patient, and truly dedicated to helping dogs thrive. The positive reinforcement methods used are effective, and my crazy spaniel is responding incredibly well. The facility is well-maintained, creating a comfortable environment for both dogs and their owners. I highly recommend Yorkshire Canine Academy for anyone seeking professional and positive dog training.

Not only a great place to train your dog, which I have been a loyal customer to for about a year and a half now, but also a professional organiser of many insightful and often completely free seminars, filled with interesting topics and helpful advice that I’ve been able to take away and incorporate into training of my dog. I highly recommend this place, run by people who are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and experienced.

Attended a seminar at Yorkshire Canine Academy which I found really useful with some good tips to take home and use with my dog training. Would definitely recommend attending future seminars.
