About Topdog Training
Training Dogs & Owners For Over 35 Years
Dog Trainer & Behaviourist
Hello and welcome to Topdog Training. My name is Henry Fitzsimons and I have been training dogs worldwide since my early teens (Nearly 40 years) originally with my uncle and aunt at their kennel in Watford. Since then I have travelled the World learning different techniques and methods which help in providing a good relationship between dog and owner.
I have also had trainers from the UK, USA, China, Europe & South America travel to my training centre in Ireland to undertake my 3 week dog training course where they learnt my highly successful training techniques.
I finished top of my class in the USA having achieved 100% in my final exam and received the rare k9 badge. In Germany I trained with German police dog handlers and also top schutzhund trainer Bernhard Flinks.
I believe that a happy dog learns fast and in order to make training enjoyable for both the dog and handler, the reinforcements used must be positive, rewarding and motivational to the individual dog. Every dog is different and it is our responsibility to provide each owner with the tools and instruction to experience the same results in the home environment.
