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.

Once you live in Dublin, Meath, Louth, Monaghan, Cavan, Wicklow, Kildare, Laois, Westmeath or Offaly then I will travel to you with training taking place wherever you are having issues for example in your home and/or out on your usual walk

If you live outside these Counties and would like my help then please Click Here

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.

During our “Puppy Foundation Training” session your puppy will develop a positive attitude towards learning which in turn will lead to them becoming a friendly, manageable adult dog. The 1-1 Private Session lasts 1.5 – 2 hours. 

This course is suitable for puppies between 2-4 months of age. For Puppies from 4 months, up to and including adult dogs please Click Here

We will also work out the temperament of your puppy and the best way to train according to it. This training will give your puppy a good start in how to live and interact with its new family, and also give you training tools to help keep them on the straight and narrow.

It is never too early to start puppy training and indeed the earlier the better. You must teach the puppy what is allowed and what is not, this is achieved through specific training for your puppies’ individual temperament using high energy motivational methods with lots of praise and rewards as puppies love to please and be pleased.

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)

Puppy Foundation Training

Henry spent 2 hours yesterday with me and my 4-month old cocker spaniel…and I just can’t believe how much progress we’ve made as a result. It’s incredible. She is now loose-leash walking like a pro. No pulling and dragging, no chasing off when she sees another dog. It’s such a pleasure walking her now. In just one session! He also gave some great recall training which has totally changed my approach. Henry was so calm and reassuring, he really gave me so much more confidence. Bonnie had been resource-guarding so we did some drills around that too. I now feel I can address that habit. Henry was so generous with his time and advice - we covered a range of other commands and issues. And Bonnie loved him…she cried by the front door after he left! If you have a new puppy or have adopted a dog I really think a session with TopDog is one of the best investments you could make for the long term happiness of your pupper (and for your sanity!). I couldn’t recommend Henry highly enough. Thanks so much Henry.

As a family we cannot recommend Henry highly enough. He is a naturally gifted dog trainer, kind and patient, who has been doing this job for years - his reviews speak for themselves. We had Henry visit our home back in August only a few weeks after welcoming our Cavapoochon pup. Although my husband has experience with dogs I had zero and I needed help to start off on the right track. In just 2 hours Henry had covered all the basics with us and we all felt confident on embarking our puppy training. The follow up advice and support is second to none and Henry happily advised us on a new behavioural issue we were having just this week. Thank you Henry!

Wow!!!! I would 100% recommend TopdogTraining. I had Henry out today with my 15 week old Cockapoo. He was amazing. He has changed a lot of naughty puppy behaviour over the course of two hours and I feel like I can start to get back to how I used to live pre pup. I have doormats again, the tea towel can hang over the oven handle and not end up in the garden and I can put my coat on like a normal human without fear of it being chewed. I have even been out of the house and the pup seems to have left everything that I want him to leave alone. Most importantly tho I feel like I have the tools to continue to correct anything we didn’t get time to cover, or that I forgot about while Henry was here. I feel a lot more relaxed and calmer because of that which also makes for a much more relaxed and calmer pup. Absolutely worth every penny for a novice pup owner! The fact that I also have Henry on my team now if there are any issues going forward just makes it even better. Thank you Henry!!

Just want to say thanks so much to Henry for the help with Luna. She is a 12 week old German shepherd puppy who had developed a habit of biting and tearing my legs and arms. I was at my wits end but within a day of Henry coming to my house to help with the training she was already so much better. Its been a week since the training and she has completely changed and now I get to enjoy playing with her and walking her without being fearful of getting hurt. I'm so grateful and would highly recommend this service. Thank you 😊

Our 5 month old French bulldog was running the house, eating everything including us. We could leave nothing within his reach. He was a nightmare to walk, extremely stubborn and did not listen. He would not stay on his own indoors or outdoors and we were struggling with crate training. We decided we needed guidance on how to improve his behaviour. I found Henry after extensive research and going by the reviews I decided to contact Henry. 3 weeks ago Henry arrived and I can't believe the difference in our dog aka "The Terrorist". The dog took to Henry's methods like a duck to water. Henry is very clear in his instruction and his methods are simple to follow. Henry is like a dog whisperer. The children got involved with the training games Henry did with us and recall is a fun time for us and the dog. With Henry's help the crate training has been a great success, the dog can be left inside or outside without destroying the doors, he is a joy to walk in the lead and he has stopped eating the contents of our home and eating us. Overall it experience with Henry could not had a more positive outcome for us or our dog. Henry is punctual, professional and reliable. I have been in touch with him several times with little queries and he has replied every time. I would not hesitate to recommend Henry to anyone, I'm so glad I contacted him to help with our dog, Henry's expertise will live on in our dog, even when our dog hits the stroppy teenage Henry will be on hand for all the advice we need as his service includes life long support.

Henry came to our house last Thursday he is excellent, very friendly, clear and professional. As well as some obedience and recall training Henry got our 5month pup penny to stop jumping up on us and the furniture, walking on the lead properly and showed us the method to keep it going ourselves. We highly recommend booking a session with Henry. Thank you for your help. A week on and Penny is like a new puppy no jumping up on visitors and lovely and calm. She is getting better every day at the recall and walking on her lead we are so happy with her⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Will A Single 2 Hour
