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 Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Separation Anxiety

Kevin gave a really clear description of the method of training used ,and why it is effective. The presentation was excellent and very informative.

His control and confidence with our dogs was excellent, as was his demonstration of the techniques used.

I am determined to make this work for Luca and Meg , as this will make our relationship with them much more positive and rewarding for both dogs and humans.

Thank you very much Kevin, you have enabled me to see a way forward for us into the future.

An enjoyable and informative session. We noticed a change in Percy by the end of the session. Percy slept downstairs on his own without crying all night something I thought we would never see!

Kevin was very informative & helpful in regards to our dogs dominant behaviour. Kevin explained everything in a clear manner that was easy to follow, he filled us with confidence about how to re-train the dogs and reassured us that with perseverance the dogs would become better behaved. After a week they have become so much calmer & easier to manage, and it has been so easy!

kevin is a really nice person. Maddison has responded well on lead walking and has not jumped up but we will see how she responds to a visitor today.

Eddie and I are really soft about Maddie so if she is not good it is our fault but we are going to try really hard.

Thank you so much we would recommend you 100%

Kevin was very helpful with the advice he gave us - there are improvements already and it has made such a difference, especially in the home. The dogs are much calmer.

We were amazed how quickly Cheska responded to the training. She is already a 'different' dog (or is that we are 'different' owners?) after just three hours. Walking was becoming a real issue but now we feel that we can confidently walk and be able to handle situations that have previously been a problem. We understand that it will take more time to change our habits but we're looking forward to a happy life with a good dog.

I was very sceptical about whether or not just three hours would do the trick and turn Marley round, but at the same time I was in great need of help for Marley. Marley is a Chihuahua and only 14 months old. She was attacked my a much larger dog whilst on holiday luckily she had no injures, but this led to Marley constantly marking in the house and being very aggressive with other dogs outside the house. She would bark non stop as she was very nervous and would not relax until we reached home, then the barking would start again in the house. I am so glad Kevin came to see Marley. She is a much more relaxed dog, no more barking in the house that has completely stopped and with on going training that Kevin gave me to use Marley is no longer as nervous of other dogs when outside and the aggressive barking at other dogs has now stopped. She is still unsure about other dogs and she will not say hello to them but she is a much more happy relaxed dog and that's all I wanted for Marley to be so thank you so much Kevin worth every penny.
