What opportunities will you get to experience during your 2 week residential stay?


  • Become an expert practitioner of the most powerful and results-driven games.
  • Learn, practice and rehearse the nuances and get copious amounts of hands-on training with the experts.
  • Receive kind and direct feedback that you get to immediately apply and tweak, RIGHT THERE AND THEN!
  • Break down the key components of foundation games and see them like you’ve never seen them before, in a way that will skill you up and enhance what you have to offer yourself and your students.

Learning and then getting to actively rehearse how even a slight shift of the hand or the timing of a marker can drive your results to the next level. You’ll come away from this retreat flying high, equipped with new skills and your passion burning brighter than ever before — and the desire to make it happen.

Live, love, breathe and TRAIN dogs each and every day. This immersion learning experience is the ULTIMATE skill up.


🔥Naughty But Nice Dogs
🔥Dog-Dog Deep Dive with a practical component where you get to work with and observe our amazing stooge dog team in action!
🔥The benefit of tricks from a behavioural point of view – Tricks can be the key to unlocking a dog’s potential (and reshaping their brain!).
🔥Lead Management and Handling Skills – feel confident and under control in every situation!
🔥Playing the games in brand-new, adapted ways that optimise what you can achieve!
🔥Learning what pivots and transforms solely for you as the retreat unfolds
🔥A bespoke and magical experience for you

NOTE: You do not need to bring your dog if you would prefer to loan a dog to work with please inform us and we can match you appropriately. Often owners of nbn dogs or owners from abroad choose this option.


  • Become a troubleshooting aficionado – a keen observer with a talent and eye for detail.
  • You will become a mechanics GURU!
  • Discover new approaches to familiar games & brand-new games that tie it all together!
  • Come away feeling empowered, levelled up and most of all, like you can take on the world!

Alongside your full dog training immersion, get to experience social opportunities (we’ll take of all of the details) throughout the retreat, including breakfast, out and about adventures, and a dinner – with maybe a special guest or two in attendance. Come flexible and excited and we’ll provide the learning experience of a lifetime.

While you will get much-needed opportunities to relax and explore the Devon countryside, visit the beach or take a walk on the moors to take in the stunning scenery, the focus of this carefully planned and jam-packed retreat is to take your learning to new and dizzy heights. We want to grow you through this one off experience where you will make memories of a lifetime!

We have no doubt that by the last day, you’ll be looking for ways to hide in the various nooks and crannies around Bowerland, because you’ll feel like you’ll never want to leave. It’s pure magic!

Full Cost excluding deluxe (including accommodation in our lovely cottages and your training materials): £4597.00

Deluxe Package

Devon Dogs is excited to announce the arrival of 2 brand new holiday cottages for our guests to stay in whilst on your holiday retreat with us. Right in the heart of the beautiful Devon countryside about 20 minutes from the main Bowerland Cottage Holidays site our new cottages are a big new addition to Bowerland.

Both traditional Devon cottages are set in gorgeous surroundings where you can walk around a stunning private fishing lake and are within easy distances to local woods and of course, the moors. The new cottages also both benefit from the private use of an enclosed 2 acre paddock for free running time for your dogs.

Now, as important as the outside space is to us dog-owning folks, the inside is set to blow you away too. Once inside both cottages, you will find a jacuzzi to relax and unwind after your amazing training sessions, large ensuite bathrooms and a log-burning stove to keep you nice and cosy during your stay.

Both cottages have 3 bedrooms and sleep up to 6 guests, so for the first time we are now able to offer accommodation for the whole family….or those who just want a little more space to relax in.


Full Cost (including accommodation in our lovely deluxe cottages and your training materials): £5747


Your tranquil and beautiful home away from home is ready for you, payment plans are available upon request, we have 7 spaces only and two of these are DELUXE level and all cottages are on a first come first served basis as each one is unique and boutique style.

Please be aware you may experience difficulties when booking with a mobile device.
