Hello and welcome to Best Friend Dog Services. My name is Karl Sweeney and I am the Trainer of Best Friend Dog Services.
My main goal is to educate people to understand their dogs and to help create a happy relationship between dogs and their owners
I offer top of the range facilities for your pets while you are away and I use fully certified solutions during our training sessions.
I do not use old style aversive methods such as choke chains or shock collars etc. as a correction tool nor do I practice any technique associated with the out dated belief of the "Alpha" - Dominance Theory. (For further information regarding this topic, please see the suggested reading list – Dominance Fact or Fiction on the left side column of the website)
As a qualified Companion Animal Behaviour Therapist and Trainer and a member of the CAPBT and C.O.A.P.E - Centre of Applied Pet Ethology- http://coape.co.uk/, I work using ethical dog training and provide effective science based training and behaviour solutions
My main areas of work with dogs is obedience training, Dog Boarding Kennels and and helping to resolve behavioral issues.
Best Friend Dog Services is based both in Dublin and Enfield Co Meath. I provide services to all parts of Leinster but I'm also willing to go the further distance when it comes to a dog and owner in need. So please feel free to contact me with any queries you may have.
