Your Stay

After your dog's training course it is important that you and all key carers of your dog attend at least 6-hours of tuition on-site at The Dog House. Years of experience has taught us that on-site lessons provide the best possible controlled and dedicated environment for you and your dog to learn in.

The time is made up of two 3 hour lessons spread over two half days and contains both practical and theoretical teaching. The objective is: 

 

  • To teach you how to communicate effectively with your dog 

  • Ensure positive behaviour going forward

  • Understand any behavioural issues and learn how to avoid triggering unwanted behaviours in the future

  • Site-specific behaviour especially for our Gun Dog Course

Please note as part of your time will be outside we suggest suitable clothing and footwear such as wellies or walking boots are brought with you. We do stock a good range of sizes of wellies that we can lend you.

A minute away from The Dog House buildings is our lovely Penrhiw Cottage which we recommend for your stay. We provide a hamper of goodies including breakfast items so please let us know if you would prefer to bring your own food.

Dinner is provided at cost and gives you a chance to discuss your dog further with The Dog House founder Mark Thompson, at his home. Please let us know in advance if you have any dietary requirements.

There is parking in front of the gates of the cottage however if you would prefer to park your car in the courtyard please ensure the gates are securely latched especially during windy conditions.
