Dog Trainer & Behaviourist

North West England

Looking for a dog trainer in the north west that can transform your relationship with your dog ?

As a qualified dog trainer, I visit clients in the North West of England including Lancashire, Merseyside, Cheshire and Greater Manchester to provide dog training and behaviour modification for dogs with problems.

I teach bad dogs to be good dogs. More importantly, I teach stressed-out owners to be calm, yet assertive handlers and to build a great relationship with their dog. If you're reading this, it's likely your dog isn’t quite the dog you hoped for. You're dog may have dog on dog aggression, leash reactivity, pulling on the leash, separate anxiety and other unwanted behaviours which are challenging and stressful for you and you're dog.

The good news is I can help, but I need your help too. Dogs struggle without clear guidance from their owners. They thrive with structure and discipline, and they love to follow a calm, firm leader. I take a behavioural approach when working with dogs, focusing on their primal drives and instincts to help them (and you) communicate better. A dog wants to be a dog, and I will show you both how.

My training system will build a strong foundation for permanent change.Check out my reviews on Google my Business or on my website. If you are local, I offer training for life. I'm available for any ongoing support you may need, and my follow up sessions are free of charge.

With one of the highest rehabilitation success rates in the UK, I not only get the best results for your dog but I am able to break down the process so that the owner is able to maintain the progress long term.

My dog training will focus on changing the way you think around your dog and teach you how to communicate more effectively with your dog. I excel in resolving dog on dog aggression, leash reactivity, pulling, separation anxiety and other challenging and stressful behaviours. I am here to help you. Just call me as this will not cost you a penny!

My goal

The goal of my company is to have 100% percent satisfaction from my clients. I have and want to maintain a reputation as someone that gives more than what you pay for and I want to be known as someone that treats people with nothing but respect.

After Our Time Together

I would also like to say thank you. Thank you for trusting me with something so important to you and your family. Thank you for giving me the privilege and opportunity to improve your life, your dog’s life, and making your lives together what it should be. It is a responsibility that I do not take lightly. You could have chosen anyone, and you chose me. For that I am your dog trainer for the life of your dog until they cross the rainbow bridge as long as you want me in your life.

Please understand that a dog is not trained in 2 weeks. A dog is not trained in 3, 4, or 5 weeks. It takes time and consistency.

With that being said we can do amazing things in just two sessions but it is just the beginning. The foundation is laid and it is strong. We added wanted behaviours and eliminated unwanted behaviours. Most importantly the dog learned how to learn and your dog is now a clean slate ready and willing to please you if you allow it.

Moving Forward What I now need from you is this:

For best results your dog needs both mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis.

The following four steps will help you continue progress:

1) Identify and eliminate the bad habits inside the home that most likely created the behavioural issues.
2) Replace the bad habits with good habits.
3) Structure, rules, and boundaries followed consistently.
4) Positive interaction with you through play and formal obedience.

The first three take no time out of your day to implement. You are doing something any way, just do the right things now. You’re always training whether you know it or not. The dog knows it.

Number 4 takes very little time. Couple of minutes a couple of times a day goes a long way.

Real results equal 10% trainer 90% owner. It is up to me to provide you with the education, information, and opportunity.

Keep it simple.

There must be consequences for doing right and there must be consequences for doing wrong.

Reward good behaviour whether you ask for it or not.

Correct unwanted behaviour quickly. If you do not correct unwanted behaviour you are rewarding it.

Obedience:

Continue to master and work on the basics.

Come, sit, down, place, out and leave it.
Practice on leash, off leash, with food, without food, with toys, without Toys, with rewards, without rewards, with tools, without tools

Practice in the Intermittent phase as long as needed when using tools

Continue to work on adding duration of commands, continue to work on Adding distance to commands, continue on adding distractions to training

Practice everywhere, strive to achieve advanced obedience which is simply Mastery of the basics under all conditions

Structured Walk:

Strive for daily structured walks
No smelling, peeing or pooping unless given release command, dog must be At your side or slightly behind, change speeds, normal speed, fast pace, very Slow, at least until walk is mastered

Free Walk:

Long line and dog can move about freely, practice recall and all other basic Commands on the free walk, implement play on the free walk, mix it up, Free walk, structured walk, obedience and play is a tremendous training Session

New Behaviours:

Teach your dog something new, even if you think it’s useless. Utilize Food luring and marking to do so. Take your time and you’ll see you both Grow as a team

BE A LEADER NOT A DICTATOR, BE FIRM BUT NOT ANGRY, BE FAIR AND CONSISTENT

A TOOL WILL NEVER BRING OUT THE BEST IN A DOG BUT A TOOL CAN BRING OUT THE BEST IN YOUR TRAINING, AND THE WORST

I don’t need perfection in the positions, I need perfection in the attitude

Most of all enjoy the process and the time that you have together. It goes fast and they are not with us long enough.

Thank you once again for taken the time to read my website.

All behaviour issues and all ages welcome!

What can be achieved in just two sessions?

"I have to say that Peter is truly a fantastic dog trainer! I adopted a Serbian Husky dog when my wife was 3 months due. I wanted a dog as a company for my new born child. Few weeks later, I noticed that Cooper was getting a little bit more hyper than usual. He was over playful, he stopped obeying commands, and I could walk him while off- the leash. He would also keep biting my hands when he was hyper. This was not a cool behaviour considering that we were expecting a new face in the house.Luckily, I found Peter Hargreaves who did an excellent job with my dog. I enrolled Cooper in a boarding program at Dog Harmony, and after a week, my dog had reformed. He now follows all commands, and I can walk him around the park without a leash. It is 5 months since I welcomed my baby boy, and the two have had a great relationship!"

I recently relocated to Lancashire from Arizona, and soon after, I adopted my 4 months Labrador retriever, Tucker. Two months later, Tucker developed fear aggression. At first, I did not realize it until I enrolled her in a dog training session at Dog Harmony dog training camp. After a few sessions, Peter Hargreaves noticed that my dog had a tendency to run away from anything that came its way. I had seen the irregular behaviour but had played it down for normal behaviour for old puppies. After a few sessions with Peter, my dog trainer and behaviourist, the fear was gone, and my dog's behaviour around new objects had changed. I am planning to enrol the dog for off-leash dog training in the near future.

"If you a looking for an experienced dog trainer and someone who will get your answers for your dog's problem, look nowhere else! Peter Hargreaves is the real deal! We transformed my aggressive and uncontrollable dog into a calm, lovely, friendly, and obedient dog.Before I took him to Dog Harmony for training, Rocky had previously snapped and attempted an attack on my close friends. I always thought that someday, he would attack someone even close to me. Many trainers recommended that I should return the dog to the breeder. Luckily, Peter was willing to take a chance with the dog. Being a military-certified dog trainer, I was somewhat positive I could get a good dog after his training. After an intensive 3 weeks of training, Rocky had changed- he was now friendly, obedient, and no longer peed in the house. He got used to Peter that I feared he would never leave him! God!! Rocky is so cool now."

"Peter is a great dog trainer. I will always be glad that I ever hired him to help me with my dog's destructive behaviours. Before I met Peter, I had spent a lot of time and money on hiring trainers. I was getting tired of the dog, and I was considering returning her to the adoption centre until I found Peter.My gold retriever pup was so sweet but sometimes went hyper and wild. Often, she ended up destroying stuff around the house. My mornings were nothing less than chaotic. She would not obey any commands. Peter offered to help, and thank goodness I am living in a peaceful home. He was gentle with the dog, and after 6 behaviour and command training sessions, Abby is a new dog."

My 7 months GSD was always aggressive around other dogs and ever pulling the leash during walks, and at some point, I had to halt the walks for him! That was not easy for any of us, so I decided to look up the internet for the best aggressive dog trainer in UK, and lucky for us, I found Peter Hargreaves and contacted him. He responded quickly, and he booked us for an evaluation. I found our first evaluation session very helpful and exciting. Peter is straightforward, and he had answers to all my queries. He also pointed out a few things I had been doing wrong. I mean, the guy is full of knowledge!

"Few months ago, I noticed that my dog was scaringly developing aggression toward my 8-year-old and 12-year boys. At first, it seemed pretty normal, but over time I realized something was off. I knew dropping and picking her from dog training camp would be challenging with my busy work schedule.After sending a number of requests to several trainers, I got a prompt reply from Dog Harmony. Peter Hargreaves, the owner, was available to train my dog on a flexible schedule. Honestly, I learned a lot of dog handling from him. Apparently, the aggression was a response to the hostile treatment from my kids. My two kids were also trained on how to handle the dog. Thanks to Peter, my dog can now peacefully play with my kids without being aggressive."

"I have a 10-year-old German shepherd dog who is a now reformed dog with a great personality thanks to Peter of the Dog Harmony. At the age of 6 months, the lovely dog was a disaster. It was like he had an extension for ""Zoomies."" It was tough; he was everywhere all the time. He would bark all day when I was away, hated car rides, and never wanted to visit the vet. I had to get a freelance vet to get him vaccinated. I tried training him on my own but it not work well for me. After a long internet review search, I settled for Peter Hargreaves. He accessed the dog's situation and requested that I have the dog enrolled for a dog boarding program at Dog Harmony for 2 weeks. The two weeks were lonely, but finally, I got the dog I always wished for. Toby is now a well-behaved dog, and it's such a joy! Thanks to Peter and positive reviews from you people- it the reason I found Peter Hargreaves. "

"Last summer, I adopted Zoe from RSPCA, Lancashire East Branch. She was around 4 months, and we spent most of our time indoors during COVID-19 lockdown. After returning to work, I began to notice unusual behaviour with my dog. Each day I came from work, my room was ever messy; she was chewing my shoes, getting items on the floor, and destroying my coach. I thought she was losing it, so I consulted a vet who recommended hiring Peter, a long-time work partner, and an experienced dog behaviourist.After evaluation, he diagnosed Zoe with mild separation anxiety and immediately recommended behavioural correction classes for Zoe. After a few days of training, Zoe was a new dog with good manners. Now, I do not have to worry about leaving her alone at home. I would definitely recommend Peter to anyone with a dog problem."

My wife and I have been married for 46 years now and lived happily with our children but when our last-born daughter moved out a couple of months ago, the house felt empty. So, we decided to adopt a dog- we had never done that before. She was lovely when we brought her home. But after a few weeks and a few attacks from my neighbough’s dog, she developed aggressive behaviour toward other dogs during walks. Then she began pulling the leash every time we went out for walks. I knew we needed help. A friend suggested we try Peter Hargreaves of Dog Harmony. After a few weeks of behavioural and command training, our lovely dog is back well behaved and no longer aggressive. We are now enjoying having Lola in our lives.

I love hiking, and so I got Oliver as a hiking buddy. We enjoyed hiking together until he started being aggressive at every new object during hikes. He would get distracted easily and pull the leash. So, I reached out to Peter after a referral from my brother-in-law. I got Oliver on behavioural class, and after a week or so, I got my old hiking buddy back-well behaved, calm, and obedient. I do not have to use a leash during hikes anymore.

My wife and I have been petting Bear for almost 8 years now, and he has progressively lost his sight and as a result was becoming afraid of every other object. He was beginning to get afraid of my wife and me. Literally, he was in bad shape, and I was considering getting rid of him. However, my wife really loves Bear, and she insisted that we hire a dog behaviourist. We hired a few of them, and nothing positive came out of it until we found Peter Hargreaves. The journey has not been easy, but we have seen positive progress from our dog. Bear no longer cowers around us, and we are very thankful and glad that Peter never gave up.

4 weeks after I brought my 9 months German shepherd home, I noticed she was a little bit more hyper than usual. She was climbing all over the place, getting excessively happy when I got home. She also developed a tendency to pull the leash during walks and backing at other dogs and animals. My friends suggested that I should hire a dog trainer. I adopted the idea and to him to Dog Harmony for a residential training session. Out dog trainer Peter Hargreaves is amazing, a few short days he completely transformed by dog. I can recommend him enough.

Very pleased with the advice received. We saw almost immediate results that will last with our continued effort. Need to put them into practice but can’t thank Peter enough for his work and support! Great trainer highly recommend. I got to a stage where I did not enjoy walking my dog and I was dreading xmas as I did not want any of my friends to come as he would bark the house downNow am looking forward to xmas as it’s the first one for almost two years that it should be normal 9 with that said perhaps not watching TV this morningIf you have a out of control dog I would certainly suggest give Dogharmony a call

I have never had a dog before, and me hiring Peter as my dog trainer was somewhat a beginners' luck, but I have to admit, he is great at what he does. He has a flexible training schedule for my dog. At Dog Harmony, they have some of the best dog training facility and approaches that seems to work wonders. My pup went through a command training session that lasted for one week and came back a changed one. I can easily control her with command and I now enjoy the bond we are creating.

"I do not know to thank Peter, but he is the reason why my life and relationship with my 2-year-old German shepherd is a lot easier now. Before we found Peter, Buddy was a mess. Even though he was friendly, he had developed bad behaviours like jumping on visitors, pulling the leash, and chew my furniture. I knew it would get worse.So, my boyfriend suggested that we enrol him at Peter Hargreaves’s Dog Harmony residential training. I was a bit reluctant, but Peter insisted that it was the best option. 14 days after, we went back to fetch the dog. He had changed- he did not jump on me like he used to. Even the with his high energy am now able to control him with commands. No more chewing furnisher, and I can confidently take him on a walk without a leash. I love and enjoy our bond. Peter!!!!!!!!"

Peter Hargreaves you are the best!!!!!!. I cannot begin to say how appreciative I am for the amazing dog training sessions I had with you. I have used several dog trainers before, but I have not had an experience like the one I had recently. Peter Hargreaves was very much involving, fun, resourceful, and always made sure I got the result I wanted. His positive reinforcement and negative correction technique are way on point! I mean, he is an excellent dog trainer, and I would unquestionably recommend him to anyone with a dog problem. Do not let your dog’s behaviour stress you out just give Peter a call

Peter has given us hope. He closely watched our dog's behaviour and gave us recommendations for training steps to try to help him overcome his separation anxiety which had become a real burden. We know it will take time and we are already making great progress. Our training is tailored to our dog and instructions specific to life in our home which increases speed of results. Thank you.

Peter Hargreaves is an astounding dog trainer! I have tried a few over the past few months and got nowhere.Last month he trained my Golden retriever (Rescue ) that has had numerous other trainers before. I had given up on him and had assumed that he is a naturally aggressive dog, well I was wrong. I was astonished by how fast my dog learned and took in orders from Peter. Since he has been aggressive for quite a while, I knew I needed the best trainer I could get, and Peter has exceeded my expectations. I am delighted. Much appreciated, Peter!

I was so stressed out with my dog’s behaviour I was thinking to rehome him. It was not a pleasure walking him, indeed I came back more stressed out. When I told my friend this, she talked me into contacting DogHarmoyBrilliant job. In just 2 sessions no more lunging/barking at other dogs, no more pulling, no more jumping up the list of improvements just goes onPeter gave us lots of advice to stop jumping behaviour (mainly aimed at guests) which took immediate effect. We’ve been working hard over the last couple weeks with our dog and it really is working.

I have 2 dogs that are very loud, hyper and lively and it was causing problems in the family. I contacted Dogharmony and it was a outstanding experience with Peter Hargreaves from Dogharmony. He is very professional and the difference in Ben and Chlo’s behaviour was remarkable – literally changed within minutes. The training techniques Peter brought along have transformed our lives and we hope will continue to do so. The fact that Peter is always available for extra support/advice is reassuring and another star from us!Very much recommended. We also both served in the Royal Marines nearly 30 years ago it’s a small world

I had a cockerpoo that would not listen to a word I said, appeared to be difficult to train and I was at my wits end. I looked around at local dog behaviourists and found Dog Harmony. I gave Peter a call and arranged two appointments ( I did not believe that Benzos issues could be resolved in just two sessions)3 weeks later I stand corrected. In just 2 sessions Benzos is a different dog. Peter makes everything look easy and it was. Keep it simple Peter kept saying and it worksIf you have any issues with your dog I would recommend Peter Hargreaves from Dog Harmony anytime

Peter is a down to earth guy with lots of experience and no pretentious qualities which may often find with some trainers I have used in the past! I have a lockdown GSD and is 14 months old and an absolute nightmare. He wants to attack every dog he sees, jumps up at everyone and barks constantly thought the night at everything he sees and hears! My wife had given up and wanted to re home as she thought we were not the right fit to own a dog. I rang several trainers and instantly felt Peter was a good fit. I liked his attitude and the positive answers to my now numerous questionsWe arranged a appointment and this was followed by a 2nd all within 10 days. It was easy and straight forward to get on board with his training techniques and they work. Now I have a totally different dog relaxed and easy going. Highly recommended

I recently had my reactive German shepeard dog into the 14 day residential dog training program as I no longer enjoyed walking him. He has become a nightmare barking at every dog, jumping up and pulling on the leash just not a pleasure to own. After the 14 days we had an extensive handover in a local nature reserve and my dog had completely changes. Peter hargreaves from dogharmony spent 4 hours couching us on how to handle samson it was a game changer. If you have a reactive dog don't waste your time like I did stressing out just contact dog harmony.

We first saw Peter back in December 2020 when he helped us with Luna our 3 year old Cavapoo's barking in the house and garden. We are making good progress with this, so invited Peter back today to help us with her pulling on lead. Within 10 minutes Peter had got Luna walking beside him and 10 minutes later she was doing the same for me. Lots of invaluable hints and tips all about dog behaviour and respect. Peter also brought one of his dogs along to give Luna extra practice as she struggles meeting some dogs. The first walk on my own this afternoon was so much better and has given me a spring in my step that I can do this. Thank You Peter.

Great trainer highly recommend. I got to a stage where I did not enjoy walking my dog and I was dreading xmas as I did not want any of my friends to come as he would bark the house downNow am looking forward to xmas as it’s the first one for almost two years that it should be normal 9 with that said perhaps not watching TV this morningIf you have a out of control dog I would certainly suggest give Dogharmony a call

I have never had a dog before, and me hiring Peter as my dog trainer was somewhat a beginners' luck, but I have to admit, he is great at what he does. He has a flexible training schedule for my dog. At Dog Harmony, they have some of the best dog training facility and approaches that seems to work wonders. My pup went through a command training session that lasted for one week and came back a changed one. I can easily control her with command and I now enjoy the bond we are creating.

"I do not know to thank Peter, but he is the reason why my life and relationship with my 2-year-old German shepherd is a lot easier now. Before we found Peter, Buddy was a mess. Even though he was friendly, he had developed bad behaviours like jumping on visitors, pulling the leash, and chew my furniture. I knew it would get worse.So, my boyfriend suggested that we enrol him at Peter Hargreaves’s Dog Harmony residential training. I was a bit reluctant, but Peter insisted that it was the best option. 14 days after, we went back to fetch the dog. He had changed- he did not jump on me like he used to. Even the with his high energy am now able to control him with commands. No more chewing furnisher, and I can confidently take him on a walk without a leash. I love and enjoy our bond. Peter!!!!!!!!"

Peter Hargreaves you are the best!!!!!!. I cannot begin to say how appreciative I am for the amazing dog training sessions I had with you. I have used several dog trainers before, but I have not had an experience like the one I had recently. Peter Hargreaves was very much involving, fun, resourceful, and always made sure I got the result I wanted. His positive reinforcement and negative correction technique are way on point! I mean, he is an excellent dog trainer, and I would unquestionably recommend him to anyone with a dog problem. Do not let your dog’s behaviour stress you out just give Peter a call

Peter has given us hope. He closely watched our dog's behaviour and gave us recommendations for training steps to try to help him overcome his separation anxiety which had become a real burden. We know it will take time and we are already making great progress. Our training is tailored to our dog and instructions specific to life in our home which increases speed of results. Thank you.

Peter Hargreaves is an astounding dog trainer! I have tried a few over the past few months and got nowhere.Last month he trained my Golden retriever (Rescue ) that has had numerous other trainers before. I had given up on him and had assumed that he is a naturally aggressive dog, well I was wrong. I was astonished by how fast my dog learned and took in orders from Peter. Since he has been aggressive for quite a while, I knew I needed the best trainer I could get, and Peter has exceeded my expectations. I am delighted. Much appreciated, Peter!

I was so stressed out with my dog’s behaviour I was thinking to rehome him. It was not a pleasure walking him, indeed I came back more stressed out. When I told my friend this, she talked me into contacting DogHarmoyBrilliant job. In just 2 sessions no more lunging/barking at other dogs, no more pulling, no more jumping up the list of improvements just goes onPeter gave us lots of advice to stop jumping behaviour (mainly aimed at guests) which took immediate effect. We’ve been working hard over the last couple weeks with our dog and it really is working.
