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?

We had our initial assessment at Dog Harmony a couple of weeks ago. My four-month-old German Shephard had been acting weird and it had become a rather tedious chore to walk him every day. He had been sniffing and pulling a lot lately. Thankfully, Peter was able to point out the problem in the first session and to my amaze, the shepherd was acting a lot more calmly after that. Peter walked me through the problem which has now made the walks easier. He has really good knowledge regarding animals and their problems. Can’t wait for the sessions to continue so my dog can get back to being a sweet little boy.

I’ve recently got Peter to train my German Shepherd with its aggression! Han’s been with me for about 2 years, but for the last 3 months, he would snarl at anyone for no apparent reason! I was agitated, and after firing two dog trainers, we came by them. Surprisingly, it’s been a week and Han’s showed a lot of progress, and his aggression has subsided extensively.

Wont lie here but Peter was my last choice and I regret that he wasn’t my first. He’s a real gem in the world of dog training. Ben is my life, so you’re harsh with him you’re harsh with me. And I’m very honest on this, had my previous dog trainer handled by the Animal Rights Team! But with Peter, it was very different, second day he had Ben out of leash and by the fourth day I’d see him wagging his tail at the entrance when it was Peter’s time to come! And that’s something you only see when someone’s compassionate!

As first-time dog owners we were nervous and had no idea where to start and who to trust with our Fifi. Peter made us feel relaxed and very comfortable with her approach, infectious enthusiasm, clearly with her love of dogs and knowledge of dogs inside out.Our pup is taking obedience, agility and trick classes and Peter has worked wonders in a very short space of time with his positive and supportive approach. He has helped us understand our pup's needs and how to enrich her life with fun training in our everyday routine.She is now a much happier, better behaved dog who loves her training! And it is not just the dog, we are also learning how to be better dog owners. I would highly recommend Peter and Dog Harmony to anyone who owns a dog and needs help with anything at all.

Peter trained our German Shepherd Dog a couple of weeks ago with incredible results. We were completely unable to control her and at our wits end. Not only did he work with her, he taught us how to manage her and handle her more effectively. Since we worked with Peter our walks have gone from stressful and completely unenjoyable to the highlight of our day. He is an incredible trainer of both people and dogs. He communicated with us throughout the entire process and answered any and all questions we could think of. Our entire family is so thankful for him and we couldn’t recommend him more strongly!

We cannot recommend Peter of Dog Harmony highly enough; he has been inspirational! He came to us in December 2020 after we had experienced unpredictable dog to dog aggression problems with a 3-year-old white German Shepherd/Retriever male we had taken as a 're-home' in August 2019.Peter's approach is always positive, firm and yet kind - he is able to deal sympathetically and realistically with dogs and owners alike without ever being negative.Every dog/owner situation is different, and Peter has the experience and ability to point to the best way forward. Never a quick fix, but if you are prepared to take his advice and show determination and perseverance things can be resolved.We have learned a huge amount; our other dog has benefitted enormously, and things are now coming together-before too long we will have two perfectly behaved dogs! It takes time and we could not have done it without Peter's help! Thanks Peter, it is reassuring to know that you are never more than a phone call or email away."

Peter regularly helps me and my dogs and is a fabulous trainer. The thing I like the most about Peter’s approach is his emotion centred approach to training dogs. It not only gets fantastic training results, but also makes for very happy dogs and owners on the back of it. I would not hesitate in recommending Peter.

Dear Peter, we just wanted to let you know that we have a “new Barney” since your visit. The old aggressive nippy Barney has nearly disappeared and our new Jack Russell is a happy good dog that we are all enjoying having in the family-me included! I am starting dog training next week and I am actually looking forward to it. We have been doing a bit of clicker training every day, so it won’t be too much of a shock to Barney.The crate discipline has really helped and we call it the “ sin bin “. It does not have to be used so much now but it’s there if we need it. Barney and the cats are much better, still not best buddies but not arch enemies anyway. There are still occasional events in the living room but nothing like before. Barney loves to go on walks and is off the lead most of the time.Thanks once again for your help it has been invaluable.

Hello Peter, since your visit he has been introduced to so much new stuff - the lead, walking, strangers, other dogs, cats, rabbits etc. and he has been an absolute legend.We are using your advice about keeping a lead on him and such a simple thing has changed our whole approach, we can control him without him mistaking it for play.He knows he can only go in the lounge if he is super calm. Yesterday he sat in his bed in there for two hours without a single mistake; it was like he was plastic!More than anything we want to thank you for reminding us he is a dog, not a human and his needs are very different. With your three hours teaching, we are so much happier and have a happy balanced puppy that is so well behaved that everyone we meet is amazed he is so young. We'll keep you updated on our progress but thanks again for your excellent advice.

I telephoned Peter late one evening a virtual wreck having witnessed my beloved Bassett Hound 'go for my mum'.This was the second occasion and I felt that I had two options left to me; get help, some serious help, or get rid of my dog. I approached Peter as his website was so detailed, and as an added bonus the cost of his support in behaviour modification would be covered by my dog insurance.Peter gave me some instant advice over the telephone and lots of reassurance that this awful situation could be turned around with hard work and consistency on my part. Within 30 minutes of Peter's first visit, I learnt some fantastic techniques and was astounded at how both of my dogs responded to Peter.Bassett's are stubborn in my opinion, but here were my hounds looking to Peter for instruction. To cut a long story short, and leaving out all the training, changes in my behaviour, house leads and mooring points! I now have two happy, content, easygoing dogs, which know I am in charge and act accordingly.Our training continues, and I know that Peter is on the end of a telephone should I need any further advice. I would not hesitate to recommend Peter to anybody and am sincerely grateful for his support and guidance!

We contacted Peter when our 3-year-old German Shepherd dog, Betsey started to wreck the house when left alone after the Christmas period after I had been at home for three weeks with him. The damage he did was terrible, trying to get out of doors and windows. We decided to crate him when we were out, but then the poor dog got so stressed, we came home to pools of blood on the floor from his paws and mouth where he had tried (and succeeded) to rip the crate apart. Luckily, my husband could take Betsey with him each day in his van and we tried to make sure one of us was always at home, which was making us both as stressed as Betsey!We arranged a meeting with Peter who gave us both the advice and information to help poor Betsey and now after just six weeks, what a changed dog. We did follow Peter’s advice to the ‘T’ to make sure Betsey got the best chance to get over his separation anxiety. Thank you, Peter, for all your advice and information, we can now leave Betsey when we want to go out at weekends and from next week, we are going to start leaving him during the day again, for one day each week, building up to the five working days, going back to family and professional dog walkers coming in each lunchtime to walk him.We cannot believe the change in Betsey, a much happier dog altogether, happy in his own company and not getting stressed every time we leave the room or try to leave the house. We would both recommend Peter to anyone with ‘dog behaviour problems. He is a gentleman, and you can see how much he loves dogs and wants to be able to help them. Thank you, Peter!"

Thanks for everything Peter. We just took Copper on a lovely walk and he was calm and recall was excellent. Had to use double zap when he's on a sniff but no whining like earlier. He was probably overwhelmed. We didn't see many dogs.We were way more relaxed than normal around sheep and the road. He was happy to be off having fun. The structured lead part of our walk was excellent! He was walking to heal and no sniffing.He put his head down a few times but nothing in comparison. He cried for an hour in his crate but that will soon stop I'm sure. I'll probably call after a few weeks once our new routine has been bedded in.We realised that we hadn't paid you the second half of the money so Jax sent it over this morning.Thanks again!

Peter was our last hope to help us with our whippet who has a high prey drive. We could not walk him safely as he reacted to anything that moved and was a danger to himself and others. Peter took Riley for a residential stay, supposedly for 2 weeks but it only took 1 week for him to transform Riley into a calm, happy dog who is a joy to walk. Thank you so much Peter, your input has enabled us to keep our gorgeous boy without worrying every time we take him out of the door.

I would 100% recommend peter to anyone who has a problem dog like we did, we contacted peter as we couldn’t control our dog buddy (Rottweiler) he was aggressive towards other dogs, people and bikes he would lunge himself at people on the street and even try to chase small children (he seen children as a game) it come to a stage were we couldn’t walk him in the day time as it was too stressful for us we had to start doing night time walking with him as it was less risk, we eventually come to a stage were we felt we couldn’t cope any longer with buddy but didn’t want to get rid of him as we knew he would most probably be put to sleep!so we contacted peter and explained our situation it didn’t seem to be too much of a trouble for him and we arranged our first training session, when we met up we had a good talk about what we were expecting from the training and peter told us how to achieve it we didn’t want anything amazing as we knew buddy would never be able to be off the lead all we wanted was for him to walk along and to ignore other people & dogs, peter brought his two little dogs who were really well behaved, we introduced buddy to one of them and peter had control of buddy every time he went to attack peter corrected him and within 10 minutes buddy was facing his two dogs and not reacting! We couldn’t believe it! We continued on to a park were there was other people & dogs peter talked us threw every situation when ever we felt tense he soon relaxed us and told us how to handle buddy he taught us how to do a structured walk and its the best thing we ever learnt, after 2 hours buddy was walking around still with peters two dogs who were off the lead he was walking past people/dogs/bikes and even children and there was no reaction we couldn’t believe it he actually changed our dog completely in 2 hours!He showed us the tools and methods we needed to walk our dog and as long as we continue to do as he told/showed us buddy will continue to improve, we actually have the confidence to take him to a park and walk him around we dont have any worry’s any more! I don’t know why we didn’t do the training sooner!!We now attend peters pack walks once a month were there is loads of other dogs who have similar problems to what buddy had its amazing to just go an refresh on some training skills and for buddy to be with all other dogs (even for us to talk to other owners and to realise we are not the only people who went threw this behaviour with our dog) there is no judgement at all which is amazing as people usually see a Rottweiler and cross the street but on these walks everyone is in the same situation just wanting help with there dogs and peter really does help!Thank you so much peter you have literally changed ours and buddy’s life for the better!!

Peter at Dog Harmony was just fantastic. Holly was our first dog and Peter gave us real confidence and tons of really practice pieces of advice to help Holly settle into the family. Holly is so well behaved and the family so well adjusted – and so much of that is down to those early sessions with Peter.

I have a French bulldog which has started bullying and nipping me. It got that bad I was thinking of rehoming him. I googled dog trainer and after speaking to several trainers I really liked Peters approach to resolving the problem. Within two weeks Alfie was a different dog. I could bring people into my house with out any fear about them being bitten. If you have problems with your dog I would recommend giving Peter a call to discuss the problem

Hi peter, just thought I'd give you an update on Bruce, he's improved so much!! We've had him out on the long lead and he's like Adams shadow he's been absolutely great! He's even let a couple of dogs walk past him a few metres away and he's happily sat there and not reacted. Thanks so much for your help, it's made such a difference to him, even in the garden he's quite happy to relax and sunbathe whilst all the neighbours and there dogs are out which is something we didn't think would ever happen! You said about meeting up again after a couple of weeks which I didn't realise it had been! It's flown by. If this is something you still recommend we will happily come along or if you want we can wait till the pack walk is up and running, entirely up to you 🙂 again thank you so much! You've given us the tools and advice to make such a difference to Bruce's life ps I hope Bruce didn't cause any injury to your dog during that fight 😬

Peter is great. Within minutes of the first session, I realized that my wildest expectations for my dog, Rothko, were too low. Peter helped my wife and I meet our real dog. He told us it would only take three sessions and by the end of the third it felt like the way forward was really clear and there wasn't much left to do.

Peter is a natural with dogs. His help with our rescue dog was simple but amazingly effective. After just a couple sessions most of her fear was put aside and she was way more confident on the street.

Peter took Riley for a residential stay, supposedly for 2 weeks but it only took 1 week for him to transform Riley into a calm, happy dog who is a joy to walk. Thank you so much Peter, your input has enabled us to keep our gorgeous boy without worrying every time we take him out of the door.

I would 100% recommend peter to anyone who has a problem dog like we did, we contacted peter as we couldn’t control our dog buddy (Rottweiler) he was aggressive towards other dogs, people and bikes he would lunge himself at people on the street and even try to chase small children (he seen children as a game) it come to a stage were we couldn’t walk him in the day time as it was too stressful for us we had to start doing night time walking with him as it was less risk, we eventually come to a stage were we felt we couldn’t cope any longer with buddy but didn’t want to get rid of him as we knew he would most probably be put to sleep!so we contacted peter and explained our situation it didn’t seem to be too much of a trouble for him and we arranged our first training session, when we met up we had a good talk about what we were expecting from the training and peter told us how to achieve it we didn’t want anything amazing as we knew buddy would never be able to be off the lead all we wanted was for him to walk along and to ignore other people & dogs, peter brought his two little dogs who were really well behaved, we introduced buddy to one of them and peter had control of buddy every time he went to attack peter corrected him and within 10 minutes buddy was facing his two dogs and not reacting! We couldn’t believe it! We continued on to a park were there was other people & dogs peter talked us threw every situation when ever we felt tense he soon relaxed us and told us how to handle buddy he taught us how to do a structured walk and its the best thing we ever learnt, after 2 hours buddy was walking around still with peters two dogs who were off the lead he was walking past people/dogs/bikes and even children and there was no reaction we couldn’t believe it he actually changed our dog completely in 2 hours!He showed us the tools and methods we needed to walk our dog and as long as we continue to do as he told/showed us buddy will continue to improve, we actually have the confidence to take him to a park and walk him around we dont have any worry’s any more! I don’t know why we didn’t do the training sooner!!We now attend peters pack walks once a month were there is loads of other dogs who have similar problems to what buddy had its amazing to just go an refresh on some training skills and for buddy to be with all other dogs (even for us to talk to other owners and to realise we are not the only people who went threw this behaviour with our dog) there is no judgement at all which is amazing as people usually see a Rottweiler and cross the street but on these walks everyone is in the same situation just wanting help with there dogs and peter really does help!Thank you so much peter you have literally changed ours and buddy’s life for the better!!

Do you own or have you ever met a dog that always seemed scared or overly aggressive towards everyone?

resohhurce guarding3

This type of behaviour speaks for itself, it is the act of aggressively protecting objects such as toys or food.

Separation anxiety is an anxious response, triggered when you become separated from your dog.
