We offer a wide range of behavioral training courses for dogs of all ages, giving support and advice to their owners at the same time. We work with dogs of all levels; from nervous dogs who need help walking by their owner’s side to dogs with high obedience and agility skills, which we train and develop for international competitions such as Crufts. We are proud to be the most successful obedience and agility handlers in Northern Ireland.

Michael is a very experienced dog behaviourist and trainer. Our young dog Bella was developing fear/reactive behaviour. Michael worked with us to develop strategies to change this behaviour. He fundamentally understands how dogs think and how humans interact with dogs. After two one-one sessions with Michael, Bella is less fearful and much happier. The training is very positive towards the dog, it is all about rewarding good behaviour and ignoring the undesirable. I would thoroughly recommend Michael for dog advice or training.
