Here at Kelford we offer a unique environment specifically designed for the residential training of your canine without owner. Your dog will be trained to the standard required before the reintroduction process commences.
On the day of collection, prior to the reintroduction, you the owner will attend a workshop in the Kelford Lodge. This is when you will learn the theory of Kelford Training & become comfortable and competent in how to communicate correctly with your well mannered, educated canine friend using techniques unique to Kelford.
Option 1- Kennel Environment
Unlike a boarding kennel, our training facility incorporates the use of our established canine pack in educating new arrivals. This ensures any pupil settles swiftly and feels confident in the unfamiliar surroundings. No dog is isolated neither does it suffer separation anxiety.
Training is carried out every day. You are kept updated with progress via email & telephone. Daily duration of training depends on training requirements and age of dog, and how much your canine companion is able to absorb and positively respond to.
Amount of training per day may range from several 15 min durations with intervals of relaxation or play periods for young puppies, through to full days training for adult dogs that require intense training, or whose progress will be maximized through long periods of training.
Puppies are admitted from 12 weeks of age for Stage 1 Training. Adult dogs – all breeds or combination breeds are welcome at any age. Beginners to Advanced.

Companion Dog – all breeds trained to willingly display good manners at all times. Covering all necessary obedience skills.
