TRAINING:

“Brilliant! The training course far exceeded my expectations. It has given me and my children great confidence in dealing with and caring for Cooper. As a novice dog owner the section on reading body Language was invaluable”
Siobhan ‘Cooper’ 

“Bow-Wow is on day 3 of the Puppy Package. The difference in him already is amazing. No more biting/nipping at home. Great service with lovely staff. Have him booked in for Obedience Classes. Can’t wait to get started :)”                                        Adele ‘Bow-Wow’

“Max and I did the Basic Obedience classes with Ciara for 6 weeks. Ciara is a great trainer we learned new skills and Max really enjoyed the sessions! I would highly recommend the classes at The Dog Den”                                                                           Grainne ‘Max’

“Excellent. Simple and to the point training tips and advice. No Complications and good notes to follow up on” Colin ‘Milo’ 

“When I adopted our beloved 3 legged Chihuahua Calvin at the end of 2012, he was 9 months old and had been in a foster home for most of his life. After 2 weeks of him being with us, I asked Ciara for a private session. Ciara immediately sensed that Calvin was still getting used to his new surroundings and timetable and that we needed to give him time to adapt to his new family and pattern. After just one 90 minute session, I was a more confident owner and Calvin learnt to accept me as his primary care giver. Armed with Ciara’s advice, I worked with him over the following weeks and he began to trust us, recognise commands and slipped into a routine that suited both our family needs and his own. Ciara made some great suggestions regarding his meals, times, bedding and behaviour which we took on board and have been successful with. I would recommend Ciara D’Arcy to anyone who wants to learn more about their furry family member or for those who are concerned with a change in behaviour, temperament or new surroundings.”

“We took our 14 week old lab pub Geisha on the puppy package package last week. The initial training consult was great for use, and she loved her 3 days of daycare and noticed a big change her her attitude instantly both in the house and out socially with other dogs. On the Friday she had her grooming and came back all fresh and cleaned up – although she soon spoilt that 🙂 A great service – and a great team that we would highly recommend. Now looking at taking her back to day care on a weekly basis to help her along on her socialising.”                                                                                       Richard ‘Geisha’

GROOMING:

“Bruno has been going to Treise & her team to be groomed since he was 8 months old he’s almost 8 years old now & he absolutely loves everyone there, he always looks immaculate when they’re finished with him I wouldn’t bring him anywhere else” Susan ‘Bruno’

“Had my dog groomed and was totally impressed with the whole set up and my little bichon never looked better. I have Highly recommend them to everyone I know with dogs.” Nicola

“Brought my young Samoyed here for a groom, was delighted with the results! the house was hair free for weeks (that’s a big deal with a Sammy!!). Thanks guys”     Rufio

“I get my dog ‘Archie’ groomed with Treise quite often. He is a beautiful white retriever of 4 yrs old. He loves to play in the mud so as you can imagine he gets dirty quite often! I highly recommend Treise as a groomer. She has a very natural gentle touch with dogs and Archie loves to get groomed by her. Her grooming and people skills are excellent and although she is a very busy groomer she always makes me and Archie feel very welcome and special at our appointments with her. And the best thing of all is she grooms Archie at a very reasonable price! Myself and Archie come away very happy customers!!”
Caitriona ‘Archie’

DAYCARE:

“Our puppy Watson loves coming here for day care a couple of times a week. He literally drags me down the road to get here! The staff are super friendly as well and always happy to chat about the dogs and answer questions. Highly recommended!”        Philip ‘Watson’

“Cannot say enough good things about The Dog Den, Ciara, Mick, Darina, Anthony and all the team … Lucy is a cavachion who bounces into the place tail wagging since she was 3 months old and has grown into such a lovely social little dog thanks to her doggy pals, constant stimulation and socialisation and generously given advice to me whenever I ask. A fantastic place with a wonderful team, and the best rating you can get is Lucy’s enthusiasm to get inside and get involved as soon as we drive up.”          Liz ‘Lucy

“Our beagle Tess has been #sothedogden for the last 2 years – can’t say enough about how much it has helped socialise her, and given her a good environment for burning off some of her energy playing with other dogs. The team are fantastic and have always given us advice when we’ve needed it. We know she’s in safe and professional hands when we leave her in. Highly recommend!”                                                          Aisling ‘Tess’

“Bella is at the point where she recognizes the habits and the car journey to get here and we don’t get a second look as she disappears through the door in the mornings. Considering her first day she would not even respond to the humans and was very very timid I am so grateful to the perseverance and professionalism of Mick, Ciara and the team. Her socialization with dogs and people is so much better and its amazing to see her friendly nature shine through her timidness. She loves it and clearly runs non-stop all day judging by her power naps in the car on the way home and we only live 10 minutes away!”                                                                                                                                   Lisa ‘Bella’ 

“My Bichon Poppy loves the Dog Den, she’s been going since she was 3 months old (she’ll be 1 later this month) and dropping her off knowing she’s going to be well cared for and not lonely at home while I’m in work is a great feeling. She nearly explodes with excitement as soon as we get to the front door!! Thanks to all the staff for creating such a great environment. We’d be lost without it!”                                  Sarah ‘Poppy’
