About Us


We Train Even The Most Challenging Dogs

Liberty K9 Dog Training Ireland (find us on Facebook) was created to provide much needed support for those dog owners who think they have exhausted every other option and still not found the help or the results they need or want.  

We are ideally situated in the centre of Ireland close to the M6, M4 and M3 making our location accessible to people from all over Ireland (Dublin, Mullingar, Meath, Kildare, Westmeath, Cavan) including Northern Ireland (Belfast).

Finding the right dog trainer for you can be difficult so here’s a bit about us.

Our unique and effective training approach consistently delivers results that delight our clients.   We do this by creating a happy and harmonious relationship between dog and owner.   We have a selection of programs to suit all dogs and owners whether Private Lessons or Residential Training.

We feel passionately that we will help owners who are struggling with their dog.  Especially whose daily lives have become stressful as a result. We know that using the right tools, techniques and guidance, we will help you transform your dog and your relationship for the better!

The key to creating a successful dog and owner relationship is that the training you learn continues to be applied long after your lesson has ended.
