Training course



Welcoming a puppy into your home can be a stressful time for you, your Family and for the puppy itself. 

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed.

Toilet training issues, mouthing, high energy, constant howling and barking, jumping up and more.

Correctly raising and training a puppy is no joke – especially when what you are trying isn’t working or you are about to get started with a new puppy and aren’t sure where to start.

That’s where we come in. 

We have a huge amount of experience raising puppies for our clients through our popular residential puppy training course. In fact, before we ever started supplying trained adult dogs, we supplied fully trained puppies.

Since our early days, based on our vast and unique experience in our field we are proud to boast an unrivaled residential puppy training package that takes all the stress and hard work out of the experience for you and allows you to enjoy your new puppy instead.

The problem with raising and training a puppy is that what you are told to do and what you can actually do are two very different things.

In essence, puppy training is really simple, if you start it correctly and focus on the right things in the correct order. Not many people have the foresight to get it right though and all of a sudden they find themselves playing catch up.

What your puppy learns in it’s first days, weeks and months set the standard and expectations for the rest of their lives. Literally, all common behaviour problems can be completely avoided or easily negotiated when they crop up when the person guiding the puppy knows what they are doing.

Our residential puppy training courses have been developed to either put right what is going wrong and then move forwards in the correct manner or, to start from scratch, get it right first time and set yourself up for an amazing life with your new puppy.

Regardless of your puppy training needs, our puppy residential training courses have been expertly developed with care, experience and skill to ensure your journey into dog ownership is as stress free and simple as possible.

Training IN what you need and training OUT what you don’t – WKD Residential Puppy Training

The answer to achieving a great life with your puppy regardless of whether you are already struggling, haven’t picked him/her up yet or, you just want to make sure you get it right is ultimately to build the correct habits (more on that shortly) and stop your puppy building the wrong habits.

If, for any reason, you are worried about your ability to do the above or wish to have your puppy raised by the professionals and then handed back over to you with all the right behaviours in the right places then the WKD residential training course is likely the solution that you are looking for.

If you don’t raise your puppy in the correct way (very different to what you are likely to do)

Then  you’re in for trouble down the line. I’m glad that you are reading this page as it shows that you are being really proactive in order to make sure you leave no stone unturned or, you’ve realised really quickly that you are out of your depth and don’t want things to spiral any further out of your control.

Our residential puppy training course is designed specifically to give you and your puppy the best start.

From toilet training and separation anxiety through to calm and attentive behaviour and CORRECT socialisation – we do it all, in the right way, so you don’t have to worry.

There is no better way to add a Puppy into your life than having had them go through our 4 week long puppy residential training course. It has proven itself many many times.

Starting as soon as your puppy is 14 days clear of its vaccinations we are in prime position to get going right away, at the perfect time to begin laying the ideal foundations for your puppy, your family and your future together.

We guarantee that you won’t find a more comprehensive puppy residential training course that the one we offer.

We’ve helped more people welcome the perfect dog into their Lives than any other organisation in the World.

It’s comprehensive, it avoids all the typical problems, it guarantees a great life together. IT WORKS!

Before, during and after 

We won’t welcome a puppy into our care until they are 14 Days clear of their puppy vaccinations.

That means that up until this point, unless your puppy comes to us straight from the breeder you’re going to be responsible for your puppies first few weeks after leaving its mum and littermates.

This part of your puppies development is the most important and it’s also the most fragile time. It’s very easy to get this bit wrong and set yourself up with lifelong problems.

On the other hand, if you get it right, you are laying the most important foundations for the rest of your puppies life.

The problem is, if you aren’t guided correctly, you’ll end up in a real mess.

That’s why we developed WKD Online Training and built a specific puppy raising course with simple video lessons, short and easy to digest guides and full trainer support so no matter what is happening, if you need help, we are online 18 Hours a Day to help you. 

WKD Online Training is free, for life, when you enrol your puppy into a WKD Residential Training course.

It allows us to help you, to help your puppy – from the moment of collection right through to the first day of residential training WKD Online means we are right by your side each step of the way.

Once your puppies residential stay is complete, we don’t just wash our hands of you and leave you to it.

In fact, since the very beginning, we’ve given a 6 Month back up service free of charge.

Most residential trainers charge for any training post residential – even if it’s putting right what they missed.

At WKD, no matter what is required following your puppies stay, it’s included. If you need to pop back and visit to deal with a specific issue – it’s free

If some part of the training slips and needs putting right – it’s free

If you need calls to answer questions – it’s free

If you need us to come to your home to deal with anything – it’s free

By working closely with you following your handover, with the support of WKD Online we will guide you to build further on our hard work. Once you have a puppy that knows how to behave, the next job becomes maintaining the training and good behaviour. By choosing to partner with WKD we are there to ensure you end up with the life you imagined with your puppy from it’s first days until its last.

Comprehensive Handover

We understand that as a new puppy owner you will be nervous about getting it right (if you aren’t you should be).

To help you with this, in addition to the pre and post training support that we offer, we also give the most comprehensive handover possible.

Over Three hours we talk you through the coming months, how to settle your puppy back into your home, how to maintain your puppies training and how to handle your puppy to make the most of everything that he/she has learnt whilst in our care.

With on site distractions to set up real life situations we ensure you are confident with what you have to do when. 

We’ve lately seen many trainers offering handovers at the clients home as standard and whilst we can facilitate this, nothing compares to having your handover in a more formal setting, where you pay full attention, can practice until your hearts content, have any questions answered and leave when you are ready and happy rather than the trainer needing to get back home and rushing the most important part of the process.

The reason we offer such strong guarantees, unrivalled support and have so many amazing reviews from our residential training packages?

Because we’ve learnt, over many years, how to do it in the best way, to get the best results and to maintain your investment for the rest of your dogs life.

Not all trainers are created equal – you won’t find better than WKD for your new Puppy!

Prices and availability

Our residential training packages, due to the quality of our training, our pre and post training support, guarantees and vast experience are in very high demand.

Across the Three types of residential training we offer, we usually have between 4 and 6 residential training dogs or puppies with us at any one time.

Fortunately, because we have a strong team of experienced and skilled trainers we can be flexible with dates for drop off and handover. Let us know your requirements and we will see what we can do to accommodate.

Our Puppy Residential Training Courses are Four weeks in duration. It takes this long to build the correct habits and behaviours so that they are instilled for life. We have tried shorter periods and it simply doesn’t give the value for money or results that are required.

You will find trainers offering residential training for week long periods – fall for this at your peril – especially with a puppy.

The WKD Puppy Residential Course includes;

Pre training and puppy settling course via WKD Online with full trainer support

4 Weeks of residential training

Dedicated trainer contact – we will send you pictures and videos of your puppy

Comprehensive handover

Lifetime access to WKD Online with full trainer support

6 Month back up service – if you need help, we are there to help
