“Big Tallos”

Written on: 27/11/2014

Picked up Tallos today, after an 11 day stay. First time I have left him this long, only other time was his trial here at Royvon for 2 nights. He is a large neopolition mastiff who can be a bit off how would I say it 'a law onto himself' still a pup but tries it on at times. Don't get me wrong he is curled up now on his sofa happy as Larry, but I know that he has been enjoying himself and looks like he has had loads of fun with his new found fur buddies, which I will add is fantastic that on… Read Full Review

“Lily's second stay”

Written on: 09/10/2014 by Miahy234 (1 review written)

Lily stayed for a week, living in with her trainer whom she obviously adored. She had made good progress with recall and walking on the lead and her trainer spent lots of time with us when we arrived, showing us how to keep up with the training. Lily looked really fit and healthy and whilst I would never put her in the standard kennels I would definitely recommend Royvon's live in boarding. Shame I can't name the trainer because she's so good and clearly loves her job and her canine charges… Read Full Review

“Home from Home for my Dogs. ”

Written on: 07/10/2014 by 307O'Brien (1 review written)

My dogs Precious and Snowflake are so important to us that we very worried when putting them into accommodation when we went away but we couldn't have been more pleased with the way they were taken care of at Royvon I didn't expect to be looking at my daughters Facebook account every night to see what they been up to and this gave me such piece of mind. What a great idea and great service I know my dogs were happy to see me when I came back but it was good to see how happy and how they had… Read Full Review

“Dog Training and Welfare Forget It”

Written on: 09/09/2014 by scottielover (1 review written)

We dropped our dog off on 1/9/14 and watched the daily photos on the web page. Day one ,about 12 photos of our happy scottie, each day fewer photos appeared until the 6th then only 4 could be found each one ears down sat by the exit gate. The trainer also posted photos they looked as if she was being wrestled! We decided to collect her. Just as well she was wet through, had an eye infection and has a cold so its of to the vets for us.Her bed and toys had obviously not been used either. Dont… Read Full Review

I agree I'm currently taking legal action against them for the neglect of my animals after one of them came out of there a third of her body weight less in three weeks!!

“3 Week Hotel & Dog Training”

Written on: 11/08/2014 by tina.rowedunn (1 review written)

My first experience of this kind, I sent my lovely 7 months old strong willed puppy to Royvon, Methry and specifically to Andre Matos, to give him the training start he needed and some extra socialistion skills over a three week stay. The facility was excellent, the people all friendly and Andre a true professional, ensuring we "humans' would do as we were told! After we collected our dog, he was a model puppy showing of his new learned waling to heel on lead, sitting, staying and say down… Read Full Review

“Alfie's Favourite, A Royvon Holiday”

Written on: 05/08/2014 by Purcell77 (1 review written)

Alfie comes here on a regular basis and has enjoyed every visit since day one. He's always cared for and looked after by excellent staff, being able to watch him enjoy by viewing the daily pictures on Facebook is such a bonus! We can see for ourselves how much fun he is having. I don't think I could leave him anywhere else, other than one of the other Royvon Sites. It means a lot to us that we have such peace of mind knowing Alfie is safe, and not only safe but also having a good time, even… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/07/2014

Thank you for caring for Leo so well. We were very impressed that he was able to mix happily with other dogs of his size and that the staff knew and cared for him individually. We feel that we can go on holiday knowing that he has plenty of attention in safe hands… Read Full Review

“Overall happy experience!”

Written on: 09/07/2014 by Petraeldali (1 review written)

We booked our 8 month old English Springer Spaniel into Royvon in Esher, as we were facing a few issues with him, including pulling like crazy when going for a walk anywhere, not listening to recall, and generally being a little too over excited. We decided to do the 3 week camp as it meant this intensive training would hopefully assist him and us, to have an all round experience of owning a beautiful springer. We missed him like crazy, but the trainer put pictures of him on Facebook every day… Read Full Review

“WE'RE RAVING ABOUT ROYVON!!”

Written on: 01/07/2014

We are so pleased to have found Royvon and it's wonderful team. Having never left our four year old Rottie Monty with anyone other than family before, we were a bit anxious, mainly because we didn't want him to misbehave and make a nuisance of himself! However, the professional nature and dedication to the dogs of everyone at Royvon had us at ease from day one when we first went to visit before Montys stay. When we arrived we noticed one of the team inspecting a guests paw,(very thoroughly I… Read Full Review

“Olly at Royvons”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by uksimo (1 review written)

When we fist put Olly into Royvons last year for his first stay at the age of 8 we were apprehensive, not due to the boarding facilities but down to the fact he had never stayed in them before. All his life we have always had family or home boarding which has suited him well. Olly is a long haired German Shepherd and is a great guard dog on his own territory, it is normally other dogs that have a problem with him and not the other way around! We were so impressed with Royvons in Esher when we… Read Full Review

“Dog training three week boot camp.”

Written on: 26/06/2014

I have a great dog who is good natured and willing but I felt he should be better trained at 10 months old than I was managing. As this was the first dog I have owned, I also felt I needed some professional input. My dog came back from his boot camp transformed. He is calmer, more obedient and a pleasure to take for a walk and have in the house, but has not lost any of his spirit or loving nature. I also needed training and this was part of the package - great advice from friendly… Read Full Review

“Pet Taxi”

Written on: 25/06/2014 by qpFlores73 (1 review written)

Val has been our driver for the pet taxi for the last year when we have sent our dog to Royvon to kennel. He is always very punctual, friendly, and knows our dog well. Our dog is always eager to see Val and to jump into the van, which tells us she loves the kennel and the driver. We highly recommend Royvon and the pet taxi service with friendly and responsible drivers!… Read Full Review

My dog has just returned after three weeks training, I followed him on Facebook and was pleased to see that he was having fun in play time. I also received pictures and YouTube video's of his training whilst in the care of Royvon. I am on day two of carrying out what he learnt and so far the loose lead walking is going brilliantly. Leave it for dropping the ball is testing at the moment but will keeping trying every day, I will go back for the free 6 months after care training sessions off… Read Full Review

Diesel our German Shepherd came for his first stay for one week in May, we were very nervous as it was not only his first time away from us , he is 7 months old, he was recently diagnosed with a serious medical condition. The staff were very considerate and caring to our concerns. From the moment we arrived we knew it would be ok, they showed a complete professional attitude, instantly bonding with diesel and fussing him. They also showed good knowledge of his condition and the needs that were… Read Full Review

“Dillon voted yes!”

Written on: 02/06/2014 by lisat224 (1 review written)

I was very unsure about leaving my dog at a kennels. He has had a very bad history and has taken a.lot of rehabilitation and I was concerned about regression. I shouldn't have worried. He had a free day stay and then an overnight to get him used to the environment at first before leaving him for a week. Dillon can be very opinionated and refuse to go somewhere he doesn't like. On each visit he went happily off without a backwards glance. When he stayed for this last week it was lovely to see… Read Full Review

“A happy dog”

Written on: 01/06/2014 by 85Rogers (1 review written)

Not only was our dog clearly well looked after while he was there, he has come home to us very happy and relaxed. He was badly bitten by another dog 6 weeks before he had to go in to kennels, and was very anxious around other dogs. As a result of the amazing care Royvon have put in to re-socialising him, he has been happily playing with other dogs all week. Being able to see this on Facebook wasn't just an indulgence for us, it really made a difference seeing that their programme was having… Read Full Review
