Our resident Behaviourist, Kevin, will work with you to resolve all complex behavioural and training issues, such as:
Basic Package Example: €265 for Initial Behaviour Consultation and two Follow-Up Sessions.
Behavioural issues involving fear and reactivity are complex, and are therefore tackled best over an extended period of time. Kevin remains in regular contact and gives support to you throughout this period. Typical scenarios include follow-up sessions, or even a group class depending on how well training is going. The best approach varies case-by-case. During the Initial Visit, you will discuss with Kevin what the best approach is for your dog and situation.
You will be sent an Assessment Questionnaire ahead of the Initial Behaviour Consultation to offer us more background details. Once in awhile, a full health check with your veterinarian may be necessary before any Follow-Up Sessions are scheduled. This is precautionary and necessary to rule out any physical causes for the problem behaviour. (Particularly if such behaviour has only recently started.) Kevin will advise during the Initial Behaviour Consultation if a health check is suggested.
Not sure if this is what you need? Dealing with problematic behaviours can be very stressful for owners and dogs alike. Please ring us directly and we would be happy to discuss the options with you.
I recently had a one on one training session with Pawfection Training and Behaviour. Kevin came out to visit me and my 6 year old beagle Manny who was having some behavioural issues with other dogs, he spent time talking with me about my concerns and we then took Manny out for a long walk, during the walk Kevin assessed her behaviour and explained why she was acting in that way. He gave me some really good tips on how to help with the issue and even wrote out a detailed training plan which he later emailed to me. I have been following his plan for a few weeks now and think that it has helped Manny a great deal, she is happier and less anxious when out on walks and I am more relaxed having her around other dogs. I would definitely recommend Pawfection Dog Training I had a great experience with them.
Kevin is a great trainer, calm and patient with all dogs, he is clear and concise with all the training so it’s easy to follow and understand. I attended his classes in Kimmage and thoroughly enjoyed them. We have 2 dogs, Pearl and Arthur, they are different breeds, have different personalities and one is deaf yet they both learnt so many new things each week in the classes and with some training at home. I would highly recommend Kevin! Thank you.
Kevin has worked wonders with my Cockerpoo Holly and I would recommend him to anyone.
A Fantastic trainer, we have seen huge improvements from our one to one sessions with Kevin. He has a very calm and relaxed demeanour which our Labrador Maxwell instantly connected with. Training was made simple and was enjoyable for us and our Dog.
I got Bailey from rescue, because of her background she can be very shy and wary of people and other dogs. Kevin was instrumental in giving me the skills to reduce and overcome her anxiety which has made both our lives so much easier. Cannot recommend Kevin highly enough – and would recommend him to anyone who has dogs with behavioural issues.
