Success Stories

Eugene James McGrath

We refer at lot of behavioural cases to Jake and our clients at McGrath Vets are raving about him. Keep up the good work guys.

Ben Slimm

An absolute fountain of knowledge and excellent positive approach to training. Jake and Terrie are superstars and every dog is treated as if he or she is their own and the love and care they show shines through.
Muddy Paws may be dog trainers - but in reality they train humans to understand and communicate more effectively with our best friends! Thanks to Muddy Paws for such excellent service!

We had Jake come out and visit our dog max who had a very bad start in life and we had absolutely no idea how to train him or where to even start. Jake spend a long time here and gave my husband invaluable advice. We worked on all the suggestions and advice and Max turned into a different dog, we still have lots to learn from Muddy Paws and lots to teach Max and hopefully after lockdown we can work with Jake again. I’m still having issues when walking with Max and I contacted Jake for some advice which he gave lots of,without hesitation and for free. Muddy Paws provided a 5 star service with invaluable advice, help and training and we can’t thank them enough. We can’t wait to work with them again when things return to normal

Jake came all the way to Dingle in this bad weather to help with my 11 month old Belgian Malinois cross who is nervous around new people and hasn't got great recall. They were best of friends after 3 minutes. He spent loads of time with us observing our puppy and then went through the best way to train my puppy. He also wrote everything out for me which is great . He gave me loads of advice and I am much happier and more confident with training my dog now, thanks so much.

I had very little knowledge about dogs when I got my pup. He was almost 3 months old when I've contacted Muddy Paws. Terrie and Jake were very good and extremely patient with him. They thought him basic obedience, how to walk on a lead and now he's learning how to heel. The knowledge and passion they have shines thought. Absolutely delighted with their services!!



- Veronika One to One Dog Training

Highly recommend Muddy Paws Dog Training to anyone, very relaxed, spacious and friendly environment for the dogs which was a huge plus for me seeing as my girl Skye had a fear of people (especially men), Jake and Terrie are lovely and really do know their stuff when it comes to dogs, a big thank you to Jake for spending extra time with Skye during each class to try and bring her out of her fear of men, the difference in her with her anxiety in just four classes is amazing !!!!..…. Thanks so much again guys.

- John Adult Dog Classes

We took both Benji and Bruno to Muddy Paws, they are so close that we opted to take them to separate classes as they were a distraction to each other (and others�). Terrie and Jake are fab, so patient and the boys loved them. Even though we have finished classes we have noticed that they continue to improve and now sit and stay at times without even being asked (knowing a treat/meal is on the way of course). They are so much easier on the lead and they definitely know that we are in charge. We will be back for any other suitable classes for them. Thanks guys.

Jake very kindly travelled to our home for Kale & Kohl and gave some great tips and tricks to help them. I would definitely recommend muddy paws as we are so happy with the progress our dogs have made in such a short time. I have 100% confidence in muddy paws continuous support.


- Rebecca One to One Dog Training

Our dog use to jump up and steal stuff from kitchen counters, drag rugs around the house, steal shoes etc. she didn't listen to anything we said to her. Jake called out to our house, we had 1 session, where he gave plenty of detailed advice on how to and what to teach to our dog and how to discipline her, if she is being bold, gave plenty of ideas about mental stimulation. This one session and all the information we got done miracles. Huge positive change in dogs behaviour.
Highly recommend Muddy Paws Dog Training.


- Laine One to One Dog Training

Jake came for a house visit to meet the offending elderly terriers. He has given us the tools to no longer dread the door bell ringing. So calm & encouraging, Jake has shown us how to have a better day to day life with our darlings🐾 . Thanks to Muddy Paws there is hopefully going to be less stress & more wagging tails!!

- Eleanor Dog Training

Had a 1:1 training session with Jake today for myself and Lola (6mth old miniature Poodle) who was difficult to walk on the lead in public. Jake is really good and Lola picked up on what he was looking for very quickly. A really enjoyable helpful session I would highly recommended Jake for any training and behavioral problems with your dog. Thanks for your help today.

Couldn't recommend Muddy Paws highly enough....begun our puppy classes before lockdown with "Sprocket", from the beginning Jake was extremely professional, gave to- the- point sound advice and encouragement. His demonstrations with Nala ( the wonder dog, in my opinion) were great. Then lockdown hit and we had the option of waiting until it was over or doing the class through zoom and what's app. I was so glad I took the online option, we never looked back! Daily updates, exercises and discussions made the training fun. Thank you all at Muddy Paws so much....will definitely use this service again!

We Stayed in Killarney for the Miss Kerry Competition & our Dog Louis received treatment fit for a King at Muddy Paws. Jake Collected Louis at our Hotel,Louis was walked, groomed, fed and loved so much by Jake and his wife they even allowed Louis to sleep in a basket in their room so he wouldn't be lonely, I received the most fabulous pictures that evening showing me the fun that Louis was having at Muddy Paws. On the day of our departure Jake dropped Louis back to our hotel. Jake couldn't have been more helpful,I felt so happy that Louis was loved and cared for by Jake and his wife. I would highly recommend this Rolls Royce service for your Dogs🐕. We will be returning to Killarney in the summer and Louis will be staying at Muddy Paws again.😍Thank you Jake for the care and attention to detail that you both lavished on our darling Louis. We look forward to seeing you over the Summer.

We used their Luxury Home Boarding services as we were off to a family holiday. After some research their page came up on Facebook and contacted them straight away to see what did they offer. I met Terrie and she showed me around, their place is like heaven for dogs. The garden is secure and full of agility toys, I love the idea of the sensory garden for dogs, cannot wait to see it in full bloom. Their house is just ready to be filled with paws. After meeting Terrie I knew this is the place I’d leave our dogs. We tried kennels before but to be honest I would never ever do it again. We got daily updates on our girls, we knew they were happy and loved. I highly recommend their services. It is so nice to leave your furry children in the hands of people who have the same mindset about pets. Thank you Terrie and Jake 🙏💖

I took part in the group puppy classes with my new puppy Floyd. Having two other dogs already I was keen to get things right from the start this time. The classes are well structured with just the right amount of “homework” and are a fantastic opportunity for the puppies to socialize. Jake and Terrie are lovely, very open to any amount of questions and most importantly Floyd loved them. We’ve come away with loads of training advice and tips to work on. I’m definitely going to take my older dogs back to try the adult dog training in the new year.

Well Sooty our 4 month old pup has just come home from 3 nights luxury boarding at muddy paws and what can I say. From the pictures I received of all the fun stuff Terrie did with her I can imagine she thoroughly enjoyed herself. The little training tips given at the end of the stay are very useful and we’ll be trying out the bits they’ve advised. Our daily update and pictures meant we could relax and know that she was being well looked after. Thanks so much Terrie and Jake, Sooty will be back. 🐾🐶 xx

Jake and Terrie really are the dream team, Alfie loved going to his classes on a Thursday and we have noticed a difference in his behavior since attending. The group classes were also a great way to meet other people and see that you aren't the only ones who are dog crazy! We love Alfie to pieces and seeing how much he has grown and how much he loves to please us and make us happy has given us a whole new appreciation for him.Dogs really are our best friends and Jake and Terrie are extremely skilled at helping you understand your dog. Thanks guys!

This is just the most amazing place for your fur baby to stay .... this is an excellent service and excellent care and attention is given to your furry Family member & is most certainly luxury boarding ... Muddy Paws really helped me out by taking our puppy for the night while we were visiting in the area and the care and attention our puppy received was excellent not to mention the gorgeous photos & video updates we received while our puppy was visiting. It’s a pity there is not more luxury boarding for dogs around but we will certainly have our puppy visit again next time we are in Kerry ! This place has to be encountered to be understood!!! Thank you so much 😊🐶

- Clara Luxury Home Boarding

Lovely place and really nice people to deal with. Loved the update every evening with the pictures. Definitely would recommend them. And have her booked in again for the end of March. Thanks.

Our boy spent the night in this fab place recently and was looked after so well. We even received pics that night to show the fun he had been having with the other dogs. i would normally be very sceptical about boarding kennels but terrie and jakes home is just so inviting and welcoming and their set up is just amazing. i would highly recommend them. there would be no reason at all to be nervous leaving your dog with them as they will certainly be well looked after. thanks again guys ❤

I went on holiday and left my Rottweiler Enzo with Terrie and Jake. Enzo had such a blast and was well looked after. I got pictures every day and didn't worry. I will definitely recommend Muddy Paws to everyone as your dog will get a 5* treatment.
