I will work with you to resolve all complex behavioural and training issues you may be having, such as:
Consultation and Diagnosis (Approximately 2 hours), this allows me to fully asses your situation. During this we will put in place safety and management steps and devise a training plan to show how best handle situations to improve your dogs behaviour.
Behavioural issues involving fear and reactivity are complex and best tackled over an extended period. During this I remain in regular contact and give support throughout this process. This could entail of follow on sessions or a group class depending on how well training is going. This will be discussed during our initial visit what the best approach is as it can vary case by case.
The first step may involve a full health check with your Veterinarian, this could be suggested as precautionary and necessary to rule out any physical causes for the problem behaviour, particularly if this behaviour has only started recently. I will send an assessment questionnaire to get some more background details and advise what type of sessions may suit best.
Not sure if this is what you need?! Dealing with these type of behaviours can be very stressful for owners and dogs. Please call me directly and we can discuss options.
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.
