Board & Train


"Sebastian would always jump up at people when they came in the house and when we were out on walks, he thought everybody wanted to say 'Hello' to him! We were also really struggling getting him to come back off lead.

Since being at Dog Trouble we can now call Sebastian and he comes back to us! Amazing!"

- Gill & Tony

"We were really struggling with getting Felix to do what we asked, he simply ruled us!  We had gone to classes but he was so over excited that he just used to bark all the time and disrupt the class, so we were advised that maybe we shouldn't go back!

He just wanted to play with every dog and he would pull on the lead to get to them. When Felix came back from Board & Train he was so much calmer and walked beautifully by our side, greeting dogs nicely, we couldn't believe it was our dog!"

- Eve & John

Board & Train is for those puppies/dogs that require basic training or a 'Top up' to get them back on track in order to learn how to become a balanced dog.

Dogs exhibiting the following behaviour are suitable for Board & Train:

  • Overexcitement

  • Pulling on Lead

  • Intermittent or no recall

  • Not responding to commands

  • Not interacting with dogs or people respectfully


Prior to booking the board & train package a 45 minute virtual dog behaviour consultation (included in the package) with Jo Cottrell is required to ascertain the dogs behaviour and discuss the length of time required in the Board & Train programme.


At the end of the stay we will provide you with a practical coaching session to teach you the skills and understanding to enable your dog to maintain their progress.

Daily activities for Board & Train dogs in addition to training include Pack Walks with other dogs, cycling, swimming, agility and breed specific activities.

Please Note:

Clients will be given an approximate length of time that their dog will benefit from in the board & train programme, but generally a minimum of 1 week is advised.  This programme is not suitable for dogs exhibiting aggression issues, they will be required to attend Boot Camp.
