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

Helen & Buddy (GSD)
After trying a number of other trainers we decided to get in touch with Vislor after reading all the positive reviews. Our 18 month old male GSD was very boisterous, noisey when excited & could not walk on a lead without pulling.We met up with Travis & Mo & decided the 3 week residential would be beneficial. We were very apprehensive about sending him away but are so glad that we did! Mo kept us informed of his progress with videos, pictures & messages throughout.
The handover with Mo was very informative, teaching us how to handle & walk him, which i haven't been able to do since he was a puppy. It was clear he had formed a bond with Mo which was so nice to see. It is still work in progress but the difference so far is amazing. He is booked in for October with Mo for top up & recall sessions which i'm sure he's looking forward to.
Thank you Mo for all of your hard work & also to Lorraine for your speedy responses to our questions.

Gavin & Charlie (Collie cross)
Our collie cross Charlie was 6 months old when we got him. He didn’t know very much and even though he was friendly, when we took him out for walks he would spin round frantically on the lead if we passed another dog. He would launch at bikes, people, cars, vans and tractors if they passed him by. Had no recall whatsoever. This issue became worse over the few weeks we owned him and we knew that we needed to find a trainer who would work with him and with us to overcome these problems and set us up to manage them for the future.
We found Vislor Dog Training by an online search. We got a response back really quickly to our enquiry and we new that the boot camp for Charlie followed by the support for us was the best way to help everyone. We met the team and when Charlie was away we received regular updates as to how he was getting on. When we met back up Trav spent time with us to explain some of the techniques reqd with Charlie and how to best handle him.
It is now 5 months since his/our training and what an amazing transformation! Charlie is responsive, walks to heel, comes back when you call him. He loves his walks, isn't bothered by traffic or people, travels well in the car or the van. We have had a lot of compliments about his behaviour from friends and others out on our walks. We have also introduced him to horses, chicken, pigs to ensure he will not bark and react to them. He has plenty of space to exercise all day and with six soggy footballs to manage it keeps him busy... We would highly recommend Vislor Dog Training, if you are facing any of the problems we have described, call them up. It is a lifetime investment and will give you years of enjoyment with your dog. Thank You !!!
Pat, David & Penda (Springer pup)
When Rafiki our Springer died at only six years old with renal failure we were decimated. Both the house and our lives seemed empty. Within three days we had bought a Springer pup, who we named Penda. Both Pat and I are in our eighties and the lively, inquisitive pup, presented an exhausting challenge. Vislor's three weeks residential course changed the situation completely. Upon collection we were presented with an obedient dog, she now walked on a slack lead even in the presence of heavy traffic and busy streets. In addition her recall was immediate. We cannot praise Vislor training too highly.

Would 100% recommend vislor for anyone struggling with their dog. They're professional, trustworthy and knowledgeable. Our German Shepherd stayed with Mo for residential training for 3 weeks and his progress is remarkable... they've given me hope for our future with Ted and I'm excited to have a better relationship with our dog 🐕 thank you!!
*** Update 24/05/2020
After my German Shepherd started displaying aggressive behaviour towards other people and dogs when he was about 6 months old I knew something was seriously wrong, I thought he would grow out of it, but by time he was 11 months old it was even worse. I found vislor through extensive research into residential training, and decided this was the place to send my dog. He stayed for 3 weeks in January and after this it was like having a new dog, I could walk him nicely on the lead, walk past people and other dogs with no reaction, and enjoy spending time with my dog. However, I never thought I would be able to take my dog for off lead walks. After another two weeks at vislor, from the great training Mo and Travis have done, I have started to let him off leash on walks and that is something I presumed to be impossible just because of the type of dog he is... I cant wait to see where he is in a few months time and I'm excited for our future together. Thank you for your amazing work! 100% the place to go for German shepherd advice and help 👌
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!

Sue & Poppy 12-month GSD
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.
