Training Holidays 





Here at Riverggins we offer bespoke training programmes for family dogs booked in for a minimum of one week onwards. 

Why not book your dog for a Training holiday whilst you take a break. 


Your dog will receive one to one training as part of their daily routine, learning new skills,

brush up with general obedience

along with socialising with other dogs.


We offer structured exercises and play brain stimulating games suited to your dog's breed.


Your dog is likely to be out a minimum of five times a day this compared to the legal minimum requirements of traditional boarding kennel of just once a day!




Areas that we cover:


General Obedience

Heel work- on and off the lead

Breed related games
Ball/dummy games

Working interaction with other dogs




All areas of development that will enhance your four legged
friend become a key member of home life





How to proceed:

Please call us for an initial discussion with regards to your dog's requirements
and your preferred dates for training. 

Application Form
You will then be asked to complete and return our application
form, found at the bottom of this page, so we have all your details to hand. Included in this form is a scoring system, where we ask you to assess and score your dog’s current ability and then your overall objectives from the training and an idea of duration of stay.


You and your dog will then be invited along to visit us here in Norfolk for an initial on-site assessment, so that we can ascertain what level your dog is at currently, how you handle and communicate with your dog and how best we can assist you in reaching your objectives.


We plan a bespoke training plan for your dog. We will then decide together a realistic time frame for your dog's to stay with us as you can appreciate every dog learns at a different rate and requires different motivation to achieve this. You will have the opportunity to have a look around and see our accommodation and facilities and to ask any questions you may have. 

During Training

We will keep you updated via videos and pictures of your dog's progress. Giving you feedback on how they are doing and what areas we are going to concentrate on next so you can be part of the training journey. 

Owners Handover & Training

At the end of the training, we will conduct a handover so that you have the tools and the knowledge of how to handle your dog.
