Richmond Puppy Training Day Care School

Reserve your puppy's place at our approved residential day school and give them the best start possible.

 It's a new service and there’s nothing else quite like it! 

I'm a registered UK dog trainer with the Animal Behaviour and Training Council and my premises is fully licensed with Hounslow Council.

This is a comprehensive service for anybody who wants to give their puppy the best start and an excellent way for new puppy owners who have busy schedules to ensure their puppy gets the training and socialisation in the early months, when it has the most impact on their puppy's life.

I start by visiting you at your home for a one hour introductory consultation. (There are options available to manage social distancing safely, which we can discuss).

When your puppy is fully vaccinated and ready to begin, I will come to your home each day to collect your puppy for a progressive session of training & socialisation. Each day will be fun and everything will work at your puppy's pace.  Another benefit of this will be maintaining your puppy's routine for feeding times and supporting their toilet training regime.

Not only that, you will receive regular progress reports and weekly summary videos to show you what your puppy can do. To complete the circle of learning, we invite you to a private training session to teach you how to continue your puppy's training and development.
