Dog Boot Camp Residential Training
We Train Your Dog For You
Our Dog Boot Camp Residential Training is a custom package where a dog can stay in our home or clean and comfortable kennels for a minimum of three weeks, whilst spending every day and as much time as is necessary with the Vislor Dog Training Team addressing general obedience needs such as:
- Dog or Handler Aggression.
- Coming back when called - recall.
- Paying attention to you - attentiveness.
- Unwanted behavior such as jumping up, biting, nipping, mouthing, barking.
- Learning commands such as sit, stay, wait and walking nicely to heel on a loose lead.
- Learning to be calm around children and in every day situations.
- Your dog will also have plenty of exercise and interaction with our own dogs.
We only take one dog at a time. We do progress reports to keep you updated and reassured that your pet is safe and well. We do video clips and publish them on our social media sites.
How Residential Dog Training Works
Minimum stay is three weeks, with one week fee payable upon booking and the balance upon commencement of the stay. You can meet Trav for a chat prior to booking residential dog training so that you can be confident in leaving your pet with us and for us to assess the suitability of your dog for this type of training.
An inclusive hand over session will be carried out when the residential dog training is complete. It is beneficial to do the handover at your home so that you can assess your dog’s progress within its own environment (travel expenses to and from your home will apply). We will demonstrate what has been achieved, accompany you on a dog walk and teach you how to keep on top of what your dog has learned.
It may be possible for you to visit us at the Vislor Training Center during the 3rd week of training. You will be able to see first-hand what has been achieved so far and provides an opportunity to identify any areas of the training that we may need to concentrate on.
To advance the training even further you can book additional top up lessons or future residential stays; perhaps when you next go on holiday rather than your pet being stuck in boarding kennels.

Dog Boot Camp Residential Training Reviews
Elliot Gilford Recommends Vislor Dog Training
I've been meaning to write this for a while and finally got round to it. We had a border collie for over 5 years that lived with us in an old farmhouse. She's always been a brilliant dog, but because we lived in a remote location, she didn't get much socialising with other people and dogs when she was young. As a result, she was quite protective of her space.
Gringo recently moved to a more built up area and was finding it difficult to adapt to the new surroundings. We came across Vislor and with her new owner Phil, we thought it would be worth a try. Gringo went to dog bootcamp for 3 weeks and the results have been brilliant. She's much more comfortable near other people, dogs and cars and rarely pulls on the lead any longer. It's been a few months since she went for training and the improvements have continued. Phil takes her on 'people socialising' sessions and she can now walk through the highstreet, something that would have been challenging before.
We knew 'teaching an old dog new tricks' would be difficult, but Gringo, Vislor and Phil proved that it can be done. A massive thank you to the team and the great work they did. They really know what they are doing and we would both highly recommend them. Thanks a million!

After acquiring a 6-month-old German Shepherd rescue puppy, it soon became apparent she had a multitude of behavioural problems. Incessant barking, dog reactive (in fact anything that moved reactive), lunging and pulling on the lead, jumping up, mouthing, and uncontrollably hyperactive. Far too out of control I couldn’t risk taking her for walks. My son took over the daily exercise but was left with a damaged arm muscle after she lunged at another dog.
Desperate situations require desperate measures, so after 6 months of struggling with a very strong-willed puppy without results, I found that Vislor offered residential training. After contacting Lorraine and Travis, and a consultation with both my son and I, Travis agreed to take her. So off she went to 3-week Boot Camp Training.
My son visited halfway through the training to view her progress and was astounded by how much had been achieved in such a short space of time. After 3 weeks Travis did the handover with my son as its as much about training the owner as well as the dog, with ongoing advice when needed
We now have a puppy that walks to heal, barking under control, sits and lies on command and perfect on recall off the lead. They should call Travis the ‘Dog Whisperer’ he has a gift; dogs just respond to him.
Thank you so much Travis and Lorraine, so glad we found you. Happy owners, happy Poppy.
