Dog Training Lancashire. Rehabilitating dogs while training owners.
Dog Training Lancashire
Welcome to Dog Harmony. Permit me to begin by telling you a little about myself. I am professional dog behaviourist and trainer Peter Hargreaves. Based in the North West, I have been training and rehabilitating dogs across Lancashire, Cheshire and Merseyside for more than three decades. I started my career training military dogs to expose IEDs & protect Royal Marines. I then went on to train gundogs for two decades. During this time, I competed at working competitions of the highest level and am now a respected judge who is frequently invited to judge participants of top-level competitions across Europe.
Today, I specialise in rehabilitating dogs with behaviour issues like, for instance, human and dog-on-dog aggression; fearfulness and anxiety; resource guarding, excessive barking and separation anxiety and a whole range of other behaviour issues owners are struggling with.
Do You Have a ‘Problem Dog’?
There is a good chance that you are visiting this page because you are stressed out, frustrated and/or embarrassed by your pooch’s behaviour. You are not alone – I am contacted week after week by distraught owners facing the same problems.
How Can I Help?
Dogs DEPEND on both structure & routine to thrive and live happy lives. Faced with lack of leadership and clear, consistent guidance from their owners, they end up struggling and displaying behaviours that are undesirable at best and potentially dangerous to them and others. I can help both your dog and you – enabling you to enjoy safe and happy walks together anytime and anywhere – by improving your relationship with one another. I will set a program specifically designed to suit your dog and by following this program, you will give your beloved pet the guidance & leadership he needs. AND HE WILL THANK YOU FOR THAT.
Dog Harmony’s Training Program
Our approach improves owner-dog communication by focussing on the primal drives & instincts of dogs. The program I will set for your dog depends heavily on your involvement and while our main focus will be on your pet, some training elements will concentrate on you, his owner.
Designed to aid both your dog and you, this program is not a ‘one-off’, quickly ‘done and over’ thing – it is something you work with and build on long term. Dog training is not something you do on the odd occasion, but a commitment for life.
My team and I are here to assist, advise & provide necessary support.
I excel in resolving:
- Dog on Dog Aggression
- Dog to Human Aggression
- Pulling on the leash
- Excessive Barking
- Separation Anxiety
- Resource Guarding
- Removing other Unwanted Behaviours
Creating Better Relationships
Rehabilitating dogs and changing their behaviour for the better invariably starts with changing the root of their problem. In other words, I start the process by changing your owner-dog relationship’s context. My 35-year experience in training dogs of all sizes, ages and breeds enabled me to develop and ‘tune up’ a highly effective, yet unbelievably simple 5-step dog training program that achieves precisely this goal.
There is no point in boring you with the underlying science, but I will tell you this: my training sessions are invariably hands-on with dogs and their owners. Training owners to handle their dogs calmly and assertively in the process, this brings results – WITHOUT FAIL.
Setting House Rules
As I mentioned above, dogs MUST HAVE structure. Bearing this in mind, we will begin by using your pooch’s primal needs and instincts to establish that structure. Your pet MUST learn ‘House Rules’.
Much of my program uses the crate. Making use of dogs’ native ‘den instinct’ enables me to provide them with a ‘safe place’ they can relax & calm in. Combining consistent house rules with proper scheduling (routine) will grow and strengthen your dog’s confidence in your leadership.
My experience taught me that many dogs are over-stimulated while lacking in proper mental stimulation. My program will effectively resolve this.
Over the years, I have helped thousands of distraught owners improve their relationships with and modify the behaviour of their dogs. Whatever your dog’s problem, whatever breed or age he is, I can do the same for you. Get in touch today to learn more.

DID YOU KNOW THAT 95% OF ALL DOG PROBLEMS CAN BE FIXED WITHIN JUST 2 EASY SESSIONS??
My Dog Training Programs are all based on creating a sound relationship with our dogs through a solid foundation and clear communication. I concentrate on real world behaviour that gets you real results.
While I understand the value of the vast methodologies of dog training, I do not limit myself to any one specific style. Every dog’s situation is different and I adapt my techniques, methods and tools to get rid of the poor habits your dog is used to, to get the appropriate behaviour we are looking for.
Not all dogs can be helped with only using just treats or food, a specific collar, a clicker or a just a leash. I will teach you how to use numerous tools correctly and efficiently, and you will develop a much healthier relationship with your dog. I use all humane tools properly and are known for helping any breed, any size, and any problem.
