Residential Dog Training Retreats

Stay with your dog on the beautiful Scottish Island of Lismore

Relax, soak in the tranquillity and just breathe! Meanwhile, re-connect with your dog without all the distractions (and zoom meetings) modern life can bring.

You can brush up on recall, nail your lead walking, learn a whole raft of new tricks or fine-tune responses to old triggers. Or all of the above, if you so desire.

Training Retreats are for individual dogs and their humans (or two dogs from the same family). This means the whole retreat can be entirely bespoke, designed to meet your exact requirements. Retreats are 3 or 5 days in length, and you can book up to 3 hours of 1:1 tuition per day, in either our fully enclosed training field or indoor classroom, depending on your dog’s needs (and the weather, of course!)

You'll also have plenty of time to relax and explore the island, and all it has to offer – or just hang out with your dog.


The cost includes 3 or 5 nights self-catering in our cosy, dog-friendly, off-grid bothy, which sleeps 4 people, so you can bring along up to 3 extra kennel hands at no extra cost! See at the bothy listing here.

Training retreats only run from April to October and dates are limited, but if this sounds like just what you’ve been waiting for Contact me now to arrange a no obligations call. It’s important it’s a good fit for your dog’s needs!
