Having just collected Henry from his behaviour modification programme,I would highly recommend Royvon to anyone .A special thank you to Aleks who has built up a great relationship with a very nervous/anxious dog that is not a huge fan of people.The pics and videos that are uploaded frequently gave us great reassurance .Thanks all More...

I would absolutely recommend Royvon, daisy stayed with them for the weekend and from start to finish they was amazing, from booking to taking her, to queries to pick up and I think daisy enjoyed herself. Pictures was up online for me to see which was really nice. I thought that was a really nice touch. From my experience with Royvon I would definitely recommend and definitely be back with daisy. Thankyou to all the team for looking after my girl. Rebecca x *here she is all tired out More...

They pick up my elderly relatives dog to take to day care, and little dog is always pleased to see the guys from Royvon & go along with them (and she’s wary of new people). They are so kind to both dog and owner, and really go the extra mile. Thank you team Royvon. ☺️ More...

Safe to say our two little maniacs had a ball staying with you! We went away for 2 weeks on our honeymoon and not once did we worry about them being in your care. The daily photos let us know they were having a wale of a time and I think they’re disappointed to be home! will definitely use your services again and recommend you to everyone I know. More...

Fitz & Windsor had the very best of times at Royvon. The daily pictures put my fretting mind at immediate ease. Staff kept me informed when the food I provided was running low, and when Fitz acquired another one of his typical pad sores. Every interaction with Royvon was transparent, helpful, and very much appreciated. It was very clear from all of the photos that Fitz and Windsor received plenty of interaction and TLC from all of the staff. I honestly cannot imagine sending my two grey handfuls anywhere else. They came home incredibly happy and very tired — thanks a million Royvon, we’ll see you again soon! More...

Would highly recommend. Staff are friendly and very knowledgable. Even though my dog Missie has bad anxiety when meeting new people she is always excited to see the staff and they have a lot of time and patience with her. Her new sister is currently enjoying her first stay with them and I wouldn’t leave them both there if I didn’t trust the staff. More...

my dogs Max and Bailey have just returned from their first ever boarding stay and I can't recommend Royvon highly enough! To say I was anxious leaving them is an understatement but I needn't have worried as they've both received top class care. The staff go out of their way to reassure you and clearly adore the dogs they look after. A special big thank you to Angharad who reassured me constantly during my trip with updates and photos. I will definitely be using Royvon again for my nexrt trip safe in the knowledge that my dogs are happy and well looked after. Thanks to you all x More...

Copper went to residential training and has just finished his last follow up session! I can’t fault our experience with Royvon, from all the pictures and keeping in touch while Copper was staying with them, to the brilliant training we had afterwards! The trainer Aleks has been amazing with Copper and teaching us how to continue the training. We have seen such a big improvement in Coppers behaviour and obedience! Thanks so much for everything!!

Bailey has just come home from his "holiday" with Charlie, Maisey and all his new friends. Daily photos showed just how much fun they were all having. The team even kept in touch when Bailey and Maisey had one of their regular disagreements!! As usual Bailey has no voice from all the barking he can get away with in Royvon and he gets so excited the minute we pull up outside. Thank you to the team for all your care.....will see you again soon. More...

Hera has spent just over 3 weeks at Royvon undertaking a BMP course with Aleks. It was a worrying time for us but we were kept reassured by regular pics and 2 videos. Aleks has worked wonders with Hera , on seeing Hera for the 1st time we need not have worried she was healthy and happy. We had an in depth handover from Aleks and we are looking forward to the future training with Royvon and Aleks. Many many thanks to you all at Royvon Merthyr for looking after our girl so well...

We were really worried about letting our boy go into the training programme at Royvon. However, from the very beginning everyone was very helpful and provided us with all of the information we needed. Throughout his stay we got daily pictures of Hiro and a video that gave us a progress update; this really was helpful and did allay some of our anxiety. Aleks was Hiro’s trainer and she kept in contact with us on email and made sure we were clear and aligned on expectation. When we went to pick Hiro up Aleks spent 3 hours with us going over all of the work they had done and then working with us to make sure we were happy with what our ongoing regime would look like. Since he has been home Hiro has been amazing. He is responding well to his training plan and we are really looking forward to the ongoing support that forms part of the programme to keep us all focused. All of the staff were attentive and helpful, but special thanks to Aleks who really did provide Hiro and us with a really strong foundation for training. Once again thanks to the whole Royvon Merthyr team. More...

We bring Wilbur our Jack Russell for daycare and he absolutely loves it. He can socialise with other dogs which is always a good thing and he has a whale of a time running around burning off his excess energy and is perfectly safe. We love seeing the photos too, he looks really happy and there have been some great action shots of him. Would thoroughly recommend it to everyone, if you are having a day out and don’t want to leave your dog home alone, if you are having work done in the house and don’t want your dog upset or escaping or if you just want your dog to have a fab day playing with other dogs and being well looked after take them there. Brilliant ��� More...

Alfie our Weimaraner has always enjoyed top class boarding and Play sessions here, along with his initial training package. We did the same with our latest addition George the Vizla, He has not long completed his Training package and is now utilising the follow up sessions. I can clearly see that George has benefited and clearly doing well following Alek's expert guidance and tuition! (As am I.....)
Would highly recommend the Training as they do a superb job and are highly knowledgeable.

Our dog stayed at Royvons for 3 weeks for the behaviour modification program. Initially I absolutely hated the idea of leaving her there for so long and was apprehensive about the whole thing. However, I shouldn't have worried as the team kept us updated with daily pictures and emails discussing her progress. In particular, I can't thank Aleks enough for going out of her way to help us. We have continued to work with her for 3 months of aftercare, and have learnt so much about how to understand our dog and give her the best life through continuous training and activities. Aleks really goes the extra mile with every single dog in her care, and her passion for the job is so obvious when you see how much the dogs love her when she works with them, which is exactly what you want from someone looking after your own dog. In fact, I'm now pretty sure our dog loves Aleks more than she loves us! More...

Fantastic for dogs and owners, highly recommended. The dogs clearly love Aleks and respond to her, our dog, Banksy acted as if he'd known her for a long time and clearly liked her. She also spent lots of time giving us advice and tips to go forward in a constructive and pleasant way. I have been around dogs for many years and Aleks is the best trainer I have come across. 5 star service. More...

My one-year-old German Shepherd Lucy recently went through the Behaviour Modification Program at Royvon. Although I was quite hesitant to send her initially, I have to say I’ve been delighted with the training and the care she received. Lucy has a history of severe dog reactivity and has always been very difficult to manage to the point where I considered re-homing her. However, thanks to outstanding guidance from her trainer Aleksandra she has made fantastic progress over the last few months. We still have a long way to go, but with continued support from Aleks and on-going training I am confident we will overcome Lucy’s issues, and she will be a wonderful companion. Thanks again to Aleks and the team at Royvon. More...

Can't speak highly enough of Royvon in Merthyr. Firstly, i needed to book Jax my German Shepherd into the boarding kennel as another kennel turned him away as he is very vocal upon arrival. This was no issue with Royvon who understood Jax very quickly and accepted him with no issues. Post this he loved it there so much he now gets excited when pulling into the car park. Due to the positive experience booking Jax into the boarding kennel I decided to sign Jax up to the 3 week behaviour modification training which is one of the best decisions I've ever made. Not only do I now have a better understanding of the behaviours excibited by Jax I also have a better understanding of different training techniques to help Jax focus. Aleks the trainer has been fantastic with plenty of updates during the residential phase and lots of support and communication post the 3 weeks.

Really can't speak highly enough of Royvon.

Would like to thank all the staff at Royvon Merthyr Tydfil for looking after our Maggie this past week. She's so happy and healthy when we pick her up each time she stays with you. Your expertise and caring ways put our minds at rest when we're on our holidays. We love the daily updates and videos we look forward to reading them each nite! Can't praise you enough! Bravo Royvon!!! And thankyou xx���� More...

My lovely (but very anxious) labradoodle Stan spent 3 weeks at Royvon on the behaviour modification programme. Stan is very nervous around strangers particularly when they visit our home and often growls when they are at close quarters. Much of his stay at Royvon focussed on helping to build his confidence around new people (and dogs) and mini challenges. I have to say I am so grateful to Aleks and the team for all their help. Stan has achieved so much and I’m really hopeful about continuing the good work in our follow up sessions and at home. Thank you and see you soon � More...

Just like to say a big thank you to all the staff at Royvon for looking after our fur baby Ghost, last week. We know we can relay on you all to go above and beyond to look after all your guests and make them happy and enjoy their stay even in all the snow that was around. Our return flight was delayed by two days due to adverse weather conditions, and we were reassured that Ghost would be well looked after until our return. What a great service you provide and will be recommending you to our friends and family. Thank you once again More...

Just want to say thank you for looking after Freddie and Rosie so well once again. They love their "holiday home away from home" and I dont ever worry about them while we're away. It takes me over 2 hours to get to you and it's worth every drop of diesel! Because their visits are always so long, it's great to see all the photos and videos on a daily basis. Training has been a godsend and I no longer have to worry about them terrorising anything that moves when we're out walking! I no longer keep them on a lead and can just enjoy our walks. Thanks once again and we're already looking forward to our next visit. More...

Thank you to everyone who looked after my little tootsie for the last two weeks. This place is really 5 star. I am really happy with the way my little yorkie was treated and to see how happy she was with the stay at royvon you can really tell that all the staff there love and care for all dogs!! My little girl stayed here for two weeks and she needed some initial training on a few things which I think has worked the best thing is that they give you really good advice on how to work with your dog and how to give your dog the happiest and best life! I will defiantly use royvon in the future for any training and boarding! Thank you royvon! � More...

We have giant breed dogs and have always had Newfoundland’s and Bordeaux. We genuinely would not leave our dogs anywhere else. The dogs jump out of the car on arrival wagging their tails and happy to see the team. When one of our dogs developed a urine infection she was taken to vets immediately and Royvon messaged me and kept us updated. I love seeing the happy photos daily of their play time activities. We 100 percent trust the Team at Royvon and we love the affection they shower our dogs with. Our dogs always return to us well cared for and without issue. Royvon has allowed us to holiday without stressing about our four legged friends. Just superb. Thank you? More...

Everyone can relate to the anxiety we experienced when leaving our 6 month old Elkhound (Arkin) for the first time with strangers, however, from the moment we went to see what Royvon Merthyr is all about, we were put at ease by Angharad who was very proactive and helpful. Arkin stayed with Royvon for 7 days, during this time he was trained by Alex and Kirsty; it was evident that Arkin had definitely grasped the basics of lose lead walking over this period, we appreciate only so much can be taught to a dog in a week, but this training has set the foundations on which we can now build upon. In addition to the training, Alex gave us a comprehensive brief with regards to what we need to do to keep up the training when we collected Arkin, this was very helpful indeed. Arkin will be checking back into Royvon in several months, we look forward seeing what he learns over a 2 week stay! Thanks to all at Royvon! More...

We leave our Dalmatian at royvon at least twice per year since he was a puppy and would really struggle to leave him anywhere else. You can tell he loves going there and being away from him is made so much easier when you see daily photos of him having fun, they are always quick to respond to any question we have when we are away which makes our anxieties about leaving him a little easier. 5star service with exceptional staff.

Marco has been coming to Royvon for the past 4 years, both for the BMP and as a boarder. He absolutely loves it here and doesn't even give me a backward glance when he's taken to his kennel! I was worried when he first came, as he's a rescue dog and I was afraid that he would not settle, but I couldn't have been more wrong. He has another 3 visits to come this year and I know that he will be well looked after and will enjoy every minute. More...

My three year old German Shepherd has struggled since a pup to come to terms with the outside word and has seen anything and everything outside of her Domestic Environment as a threat. Each time she has been kennelled at Royvon there have been no problems or issues which given her predisposed attitude that in itself is a positive recommendation. She has just completed the Behavioural Modification Program and whilst there is still a lot of hard work ahead she achieved many firsts but the one that really underpins achievement is to socialise with other dogs in a field off lead and not wearing a muzzle.

I have German shepherd dog which always stays with Royvon when we go away. I know he is well cared for and has plenty of outdoor time with his human when he's on his holidays. We get daily photos of his holiday adventures and on the odd occasion he seems to be having a better time than us. Royvon isn't the cheapest option but because I know he is happy and cared for its worth the money. More...

Missy had a really lovely stay and enjoyed her five star stay and interaction with other doggy friends . Missy also enjoyed the company of Aleks for some training sessions during her stay . We have also had some follow up sessions with Aleks which we have found to be very helpful in understanding Missy’s training needs and Missy is always excited to see her .

Aussie is a rescue dog who previously has never liked staying in boarding kennels. This all changed upon moving to Merthyr and him staying at Royvon for a few days to avoid all the moving chaos. He's now there for a few days several times per month and loves it so much. He tears down the driveway and head butts his way into the office he's so keen to have fun. The staff are all fantastic and are clearly all dog lovers. They spend lots of time getting to know and be trusted by all the dogs. The regular updates on Facebook and photos of him having fun are lovely to look at on an evening when I'm away from home. He genuinely loves it there so much I think he's sad to go home! More...

I had real doubts about signing up my puppy to a 3-week programme, but wanted to start her training off correctly. I needn’t have worried. Seeing her interact with Aleksandra, her trainer, really set my mind at ease. Amber has come home happy, well socialised and with far better recall, leash-walking skills and responsiveness than when she went. Is she perfect? Not at all. But I now have the tools - backed up with 3 months worth of follow-up sessions - to carry on building on the foundation Aleks set, and I would have no hesitation in sending Amber back to Royvon when I next go away.
