Very worthwhile 4 hour session. Worth every penny. I could not believe the instant transformation, being able to walk Heidi off lead in public and her listening to me without wanting to attack other dogs was amazing. The problem I have had for a year was rectified in just 4 hours. Kevin is a brilliant trainer and I would recommend him to anyone.

Kevin McDonnell dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks

We thought Kevin's presentation and explanations were very clear and his method simple to follow and were pleasantly surprised how quickly Shelley responded. We have tried various dog behaviourists in the past in an effort to curb her aggression with both people and dogs with little success, but following the training session with Kevin she passed her first test with a visitor to the house with flying colours. It is early days but we are already seeing a welcome change in her behaviour.

We are delighted with the results of our training session. Kevin is a fantastic trainer and has helped us to understand our dogs. As a result i feel confident with continued practice our dogs will be happier and we will be too.

Thank you Kevin

Kevin was fantastic. My daughters and I enjoyed the lesson and were absolutely amazed at the rapid results achieved. Before the lesson, I didn't dare hope that it would work, let alone work so quickly, but it really did. The change in the dogs' behaviour has made all our lives much easier and less stressful and we can enjoy our dogs knowing they are well behaved and we have the tools to correct any unwanted behaviour. I have been raving about Kevin and the programme to our friends since.

Stan is a lovely Staffie/terrier rescue dog,he has been very easy to train apart from lead pulling and aggression with other dogs. Kevin spent 3 hours with Stan and I this morning and the difference is incredible the training was enjoyable and easy to understand and this afternoon I felt confident enough to walk him without a lead amongst other dogs and the difference is breathtaking it was a joy to take him out and no more lead pulling either. Thank you so much.

Unbelievable results! Kevin had Ozzy sitting quietly in another room within a few minutes and, as I write, he is in his crate in the kitchen for our practice session. He is already waiting at the door and gate without the command, and this evening he walked well on the lead. We even went to the pub and had a peaceful meal! Long may it continue - money very well spent!

I am amazed at the transformation of my dog Ted and my family's dogs after only an hour of working with Kevin.

Kevin was calm and encouraging and thoroughly professional throughout our session. He explained how to approach training the dog in a safe and consistent manner.

Our dogs had been ruling the roost, jumping up and barking at people passing the house, with my dog in particular being aggressive towards people and dogs if he felt threatened. Kevin talked us through how to approach these problems and the solutions he has offered have been immediately effective. I cannot recommend Kevin highly enough for helping us to overcome what had previously seemed impossible!

I look forward to continuing with our training after such a positive start.

Kevin was absolutely brilliant, he made it all so simple to understand. My friend has an aggressive dog and I will definitely be recommending Kevin to help!

I am so happy with the change I can already see in my border collie. She is so different and a huge weight has been lifted off our shoulders ! She now understands for the first time that we are her pack leaders and the difference is remarkable. Wish we had contacted kevin sooner ! I strongly recommend to any dog owner that is struggling to get bark busters on the case ... it is literally life changing. She is happier ... as are we :)

This was a morning well spent and we learned a lot. Otto is already a lot calmer and has responded brilliantly. I wish I had called Kevin when I first had him 3 years ago. It would have saved a lot of angst for me. I believe the money well spent and look forward to the future with my dog. Thank you
