If you want a happy dog who is a joy to live with, a pleasure to take out and a dog to be proud of please go see Dave!Its a quickroad trip from Dublin to him and I regret not choosing him right from the beginning. Before we found him I was thinking I would have to go to the UK- thats how desparate I was for something that worked.We struggled for 3 years doing programmes we had been given by 4 other trainers- and despite doing the work everyday- our poor dog would run to his crate tail between his legs when he saw his lead because he hated leaving the house and the walks. He had bad guts and skin as he was so anxious and we humans were very stressed walking him as he was just awful when he saw any dog no matter how far away. No matter what we did nothing helped for long and he felt so frustrated.Nowadays his guts and skin have totally cleared, he loves seeing his lead! He has also found a bit more 'chill' mode when out walking and cruises along- even through the main street of our town! Walks are fun and its the best feeling to see a dog likes ours transform like this.Dave methods, tools and process are fair, balanced and very very clear to the dog which helps them understand clearly exactly what you want and what you don't want. If you've been struggling and told like we were ' this might be how it will be' please consult Dave. And if you are lucky enough to have a pup get the right start and see Dave. More...
Dave's work is amazing. He not only trains the dog, he teaches the owner as well. I've been there and regularly come back for refreshers. I highly recommend Dave to any dog owner. More...
Brilliant dog trainer, very knowledgeable and you see the results pretty fast. Would highly recommend Dave to anyone looking for a dog trainer.
We took our Golden Retriever puppy to Dave over two and a half years ago and it was the best decision we have ever made. Dave was very good to explain and demonstrate the training methods which do work and are dog friendly. He gave time and attention to all of our family and since then we have had no issues with our lovely obedient happy dog.I would highly recommend Dave as a person and a professional. More...
