Hello! Welcome to Topdog Training, Ireland’s leading dog trainers & behaviourists. I’m Henry and I’ve been training dogs for over 35 years. I provide veterinarian recommended obedience training & behaviour modification which takes place in your home & out on your usual walk. My training is always tailored to meet your puppy, adult dog or rescues needs.

I cover Dublin, Meath, Louth, Monaghan, Cavan, Wicklow, Kildare, Laois, Westmeath, Offaly, Wexford, Waterford, Tipperary, Roscommon, Longford, Leitrim, Carlow & Kilkenny.

The earlier you start to train your dog the better but it is never too late, the saying ”it’s like trying to teach an old dog new tricks” is just that, a saying. Once your dog is fit and healthy, they can be trained.

Dogs Behavioural problems often cause an owner to feel they must give up their pet. Problems can range from submissive urination to dangerous aggression, from destructiveness to disobedience, from too active and playful to ignoring you completely. Identifying exactly what is the cause of the problem is usually half the battle. 

Guaranteed Results & Lifetime Support. After our Private 1-1 in-home training session, you will have Free Unlimited Support & Training For The Lifetime Of Your Dog. We Will Always Be Here To Help You Should You Need Us (See below for more details)

Rule # 1:

A tired dog is usually a good dog, make sure your dog gets enough exercise.

I usually find the root cause of behavioural problems in dogs is down to incorrect training. I believe a dog needs to have boundaries set.
This is where behaviour training comes in. A Specialised 1-1 Private Training Session coupled with correct obedience training is usually the starting point at changing your dogs inappropriate behaviour, followed by a change in thinking of the owners.

You will be shown how to implement the newly taught commands and the correct way to interact with your dog.
You will then be given written instruction on how to modify your dogs behaviour at home, usually with both these
(the obedience and your knowledge of dog pack behaviour) your dog will calm down and become a valued member of your family once more.

We are normally able to change the behaviour of most dogs including those whose owners think the only way out is either a trip to the dog pound or the vets.

We have trained dogs who have bitten their owners, bitten friends and relations and who are basically out of control as well as dogs who have mild to serious dog aggression.

We have also trained nuisance barkers, dogs who destroy the house when left alone and dogs with other separation anxiety issues, we are happy to say that with our training techniques we have managed to help most.

Will A Single

Using my highly successful training methods which I have perfected during my 37-years training puppies and adult dogs in Europe, the USA & Asia means one comprehensive tailored 1-1 private training session is normally all that is needed. Check our many Facebook reviews to see just what can be achieved.
