About Topdog Training

transformational Dog Training

Hello and welcome to Topdog Training. My name is Henry Fitzsimons and I have been training dogs since my early teens, 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 countries such as China, Brazil, France, Germany the USA & UK travel to me 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 receiving 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.

At Topdog Training we offer 1-1 dog & puppy training in your own home.

We left our Malinios bitch to be trained with Henry and his trainers. We took a stubborn wilful dog and came home with a different girl!
She now lives in the house is excellent in everyway plus we have a dog that is fully protection trained who would protect us with all she has.I would definatley take any of my dogs to Topdog Training the rates were very fare and Henry and his team put much more into Tally than they needed to.
Thanks again Henry.

We brought our German Shepherd Rossi to Henry. Rossi had problems pulling on lead, and lunging at cars when out walking. Two weeks with Henry and we brought home a new dog. Absolutely brilliant. Top marks for a top dog trainer.
