The Dog Treanor
Every day dog training for every dog
Whether its private, one-to-one classes or larger group sessions you are looking for we have something for everyone. Our training is based purely on positive methods and we aim to make training fun for everyone, dogs and owners. We work from the basics, through dealing with problem behaviours into building new skills for both of you. Classes are not just for fixing and avoiding problems, they are a chance to spend some time with your dog, try something new and take a break from the same old weekend.
We run a range of private classes from preparing for a new baby, working on problem behaviours to helping a reactive dog find a bit of calm. Our classes are very flexible and if there isn't something listed that floats your boat, get in touch and we'll be happy to design something just for you and your dog. Along with pure one-to-one classes we also run private group classes, if you and your friends fancy getting together with your dogs and trying something fun, we're sure to have something for everyone.
Adult dog & puppy classes - Kill & Naas
We primarily focus on group classes as you and your dog will get the most benefit from these. Working in a group setting helps your dog to generalise what they learn in class to the real world where they will be asked to work and behave in a certain manner with the distraction of lots of dogs, children, and other enticements. Depending on the dog, we would even suggest this approach for many reactive dogs. We keep these sesions short to reduce stress on you and your dog.
Throughout, we focus on fun and building a (stronger) bond between you and your dog.
Online Courses & Classes
Single Topic Courses and Problem Solving Sessions
New Online Classes & Courses
New classes for a new status quo
To fully comply with all HSE, WHO and Irish Government directives we are moving the bulk of our classes to online delivery. While this will be quite different from what many are used to, it will allow us to continue to deliver courses and one-to-one help for all our clients. Just because our lives have been changed for now does not mean that the problems our dogs face just get paused.
Online Single Topic Courses. We are starting single topic online courses. This is, despite the difficulties, an opportune time to help work on any issues your dog is having. We will be holding classes on recall and leash walking to begin with. These sessions will work through the topic at your dog's pace with tailored feedback throughout all exercises and guidance to improve your progress. The duration of engagement is one month at each level: foundation; intermediate; and professional.
Private and One-to-One Online Classes. Despite the current guidelines, dogs with various behavioural problems don't get to put these issues to one side or pause them because our lives have changed. Whether dealing with standard problems with a puppy or larger issues, such as barking, anxiety or reactive behaviour, we are still here to help. For puppies we have our Puppy Consults and for other adult issues we have our Working Behaviour Assessment.
