Hi. Just want to say a big thank you to Kevin. We got our puppy Pippa during lockdown and wanted to get off to a good start with her. The online training with Kevin was just what we needed and we loved the positive approach he used at all times. Pippa is so gentle and responds so well to this. Thank you Kevin. I would highly recommend these training sessions. More...

Kevin has been great to work with training our Rolo. We have had 3 sessions and even after the sessions were over he still continued to stay in contact. Kevin is great at what he does and gives great guidance. Rolo has come a long way and I would definitely recommend his training . More...

We have been using Skype and What’s App at home and on our walks which works really well. Thank you so much Kevin looking forward to continuing to work with you from Sonny and Skylar More...

Kevin has been amazing when it comes to our dog. Ole was having some behavioural issues and after his classes with Kevin he has come on so well. Kevin has been so patient and has given us so much great help in training Ole, everything he has taught us has worked so well. His aftercare is second to none, he constantly checks in to see how Ole is doing and gives us great tips when needed. I would highly recommend him to anyone. More...

Kevin is so knowledgeable and patient and makes himself available for questions and updates in between sessions. We've seen real improvement with our dogs.

Thank you Kevin. Asher is a very happy puppy thanks to you and all your advice you gave on how to manage him at home. The follow up classes were also brilliant for both Asher and me as it helped me to integrate the learnings over a few weeks. Looking forward to doing agility classes and learning more tricks in the New Year. Hope you have a well deserved break. More...

In 5 short weeks, our 4 ye old rescue Toby went from being hyper and nervous to bring able to walk off the lead in class. We still have a lot of training ahead of us but Kevin had given us the tools and confidence to keep working on Toby's confidence . He is such a happy dog, and now we know he'll be a well behaved one too! More...

I've a very nervous and anxious young dog that has a tendency to go in all guns blazing when meeting other dogs. Kevin gave some very good advice and tips that have worked very well. He has continued to check in and offer help and advice. From a situation of being very nervous of the dog, I'm now very pleased with her behaviour and couldn't of worked on the dogs behaviour without Kevin's help. He has great experience and a excellent way with dogs. It's greatly appreciated More...

Kevin is an expert in his field and gives you real life tips on how to help your dog be happier and calmer. I did the Pawfect Manners course with my 10 month whippet Sika and Kevin went above and beyond to help us with issues that were specific to Sika. Will definitely do future courses with Pawfection - makes for a happy owner and a happy puppy. More...

Myself and Luna attended a 5 week group training class with Kevin in Kimmage recently which really helped Luna to build confidence and gain some skills to help her focus better. Luna is 2 years of age, which proves it is never too late to do some extra training More...

I did a course with my dog Sam, who is a lively golden retriever. Kevin gave great tips and guidance. Important to continue practicing at home though. My dog surprised me how well he settled around other dogs and this was a great way of socialising him in the right way. We are hoping to continue and bring Sam for agility training with Kevin for the summer. More...

I did the "Pawfect Manners" 4 week adult obedience training with my 2 year old Pomeranian. I had only recently adopted him and his manners were few and far between! I have to say that since the training with Kevin my Pom is much better behaved and a happier dog overall! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Pawfection Dog Training to anyone who is struggling with their dog's obedience. Thanks again Kevin!Dawn & Harry ☺️? More...
