Residential Training

Unlock your dogs full potential with expert residential training!

What is residential training?

Residential training is a style of dog training that allows your dog to be fully immersed into a new environment. During their training, your dog will come to live with us at our indoor facility in Central Scotland. While this may seem like a big change for your dog, that’s precisely the point. Having done hundreds of residentials over the years, we continue to see how beneficial residential is for dogs.

Why choose residential training?

Our programmes are organised by goals and end results. We know that every dog is different and each dog is unique. We want to take each dog through the training process in the way that they learn best, which may require different approaches and different amounts of time for each dog. This achieves better results and a happy, confident dog!

How do I sign up?

Just have a read below at the different packages on offer, then complete our short enquiry form! We'll then get back to you with a training proposal, and just like that you're a member of the MADRA Training Academy! Additionally, we can sometimes offer an emergency space if required, at an increased cost.
