I was bought up in a family that love dogs, so its always been a dream of mine to work with `dogs. Following the success of Low Farm Dog Kennels (LFK) I have trained with the UK’s leading education and accreditation body The Institute Of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT). I’m proud and delighted to be mentored by the founder of IMDT, best selling author and celebrity dog trainer Steve Mann and his dedicated and experienced team. Therefore, when you use LFK dog training you get my passion for helping you and a wealth of experience backed up by some of the worlds leading dog trainers.
My approach to training dogs is the same as my approach to looking after the dogs in my care at LFK, with the dogs welfare and fun at the heart. Using scientifically proven methods of training which ensure the dog is learning and equally importantly, the dogs enjoys
learning. I believe its vital that the dog can be its natural self during training and that the plan is fun for the dog and owner. Also, that the plan reflects the owners lifestyle and that they are empowered to train their dog effectively.
By booking with an IMDT member, you are booking a trainer that has CHOSEN to undertake a practical and theoretical assessment process second to none within the professional dog training industry.

Why choose residential training?
Professional on hand full time, trained in how the canine brain works and monitoring canine behaviour to ensure your dog is getting the most out of the comprehensive training plan.
What we are doing by training daily with a dedicated plan is laying the fundamentals, with these learnt it is up to you to continue our work which is why we will share regular updates with what we are doing and importantly why we are doing it. If a dog is put straight back into an old routine, without upkeep of rules set while away on residential training, it is possible that the dog can get back into the old routine of behaviours, or unwanted behaviour can gradually return. If or How quickly this happens is really down to the you. Within our residential training packages are follow up home visits to ensure you have the support you need to continue our work.
Residential dog training means your dog will be staying with us for the duration of their training, which can be very difficult for owners being without their family member for a length of time. We keep in touch with regular updates via messages, photos and videos to try to put you at ease.
The cost is completely dependant on the needs of you and your dog. This will determine the length of stay and the length & intensity of each training session.
As we train dogs to customer requirements, the amount of training a dog receives during the day will depend on what we are working on. For example, teaching a new behaviour is often best learnt over multiple short sessions, so we may do 5-6 short 15 minute sessions during the day. If we are working on something like loose lead walking, we may go on long walks rather than short sessions.
We can’t guarantee the outcome because every dog is different. What we can guarantee is that we will do everything in our power to ensure the desired outcome is achieved within the perimeters of your package and that we have everything we need to give your dog the best chance of successfully learning the behaviour or skills you desire.
