Dog Training Liverpool

Welcome to Dog Harmony, Liverpool’s #1 specialist in resolving dogs’ behaviour issues.

DID YOU KNOW THAT 95% OF ALL DOG PROBLEMS CAN BE FIXED WITHIN JUST 2 EASY SESSIONS??

Hello – I am Peter Hargreaves. I am a Liverpool-based dog trainer and I have trained dogs for over 35 years. My dog training career started in the Royal Marines, where I trained military dogs to protect Marines and look for IEDs. Following this, I trained gundogs for 20 years. Here, I competed at the highest competition levels and ‘graduated’ to becoming a respected judge invited to judge prestigious working competitions across Europe.

Today, I specialise and excel in resolving dogs’ behaviour issues. Such issues can consist of dog-on-dog or human aggression; separation anxiety, resource guarding or fearfulness and virtually any other problem you may have with your dog.

Why Are You Here?

You are probably reading this because your dog’s behaviour is causing you problems and you are one of the countless distraught, frustrated and stressed out dog owners who seek my help every week.

What Can I Do?

I can help you improve your relationship with your dog so the two of you can go for walks together anywhere, anyplace, any time. Dogs thrive on routine and structure. Without clear guidance and leadership from their owners, they struggle. By following the training program I specifically set for your dog, you will be providing this guidance and leadership – and YOUR DOG WILL THANK YOU FOR IT.

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

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.

My Dog Training Program is based on creating a relationship through a solid foundation and clear communication.

It can take years to find out what your puppy needs from you but I can show you in just two sessions.

With this program your dog will stay with Peter and his family including Peter’s two children and three dogs.

My Dog Training Liverpool Program

Dog Harmony’s approach focuses on dogs’ primal instincts and drives to improve communication. My program heavily depends on owner involvement, and while we will focus specifically on your dog, some elements of training will focus on you, the owner. This program is designed to help both you and your dog. Training a dog is not a ‘yoyo diet’ – it is a lifelong commitment. I am here to help and provide any necessary support.

Building Better Relationships

The first step towards behaviour change is to change the root of the problem. This means changing the context of your relationship with your dog. After training dogs for 35 years, I have developed a simple, yet highly effective 5-step training program that achieves exactly that.

I will refrain from boring you with the science behind this, but I will say this: all my training is hands-on with you and your dog. This invariably produces results, as I will in the process also train you to handle and work with your dog in a calm and assertive manner.

House Rules

We will start by using your dog’s primal instincts and needs to create a structured life for him. Your dog NEEDS to learn basic “house rules”.

Most of my training program makes use of the crate. Using a dog’s natural “den instincts” allows me to give your dog a “safe place” to calm down and relax in. Use of consistent house rules and proper scheduling will increase your dog’s confidence in your leadership. In my experience, dogs are often over stimulated while lacking proper mental stimulation. My training program will resolve this.

I have assisted 1,000s of owners in building better relationships with their dogs. I can help you, too. Call me for more detailed information. I resolve

  • Pulling on the leash
  • Dog on Dog Aggression
  • Reactive on a leash to other dogs
  • Resource Guarding
  • Separation anxiety

After my training you can walk your dog anywhere at anytime, no more avoiding dogs or crossing the road when you see another dog. No more picking times that you know will be dog free. No more the MIDNIGHT walk!

I BELIEVE THAT 98% OF ALL DOGS CAN BE TRAINED TO HAVE BASIC MANNERS, RESPECT AND UNWANTED BEHAVIOURS REMOVED REGARDLESS OF BREED, SIZE, SHAPE, OR AGE!

REVIEWS

  • review rating 5  The difference in our dog is amazing. She's relaxed and happy - and so are we. Peter really helped us understand how to help Catty comfortably become a member of our pack. It's only been a week since she's been home from her board-and-train, but we've already seen so many positive changes in Catty towards us and our cats that it's almost like magic! Thank you, Peter!

  • review rating 5  I know we have not been to see you in a while and have been busy with lot of things so far this year. I wanted to let you know that Rosie is doing great. She is a completely different dog. That little beagle that tried to bite you on the first day is so much calmer now The dog that had no confidence has become the social butterfly of the neighborhood. She enjoys playing and meeting new dogs and has adjusted well with our 2 Maltese. The kids absolutely love her to no end and she has become a wonderful addition to our family. This is the same dog we had apprehension of after we got her in dealing with her issues. The time investment and commitment has been well worth it all. Sure, she is not perfect and we need to work on a few things but she has come full circle. Peter, I really wanted to thank you for the service that you provide to help people and dogs to find harmony together. You are great at what you do. We spread the word of you to every dog owner we meet. We wish you continued success.I look forward to seeing you around town walking with my now calm dog

  • review rating 5  I have a 8 year old German Shepherd. For the past 4 years she is aggressive to people coming into the house, I struggle to walk her as she is nasty to other dogs and pulling me all over the place. She barks at people so I have to time my walks when no one is around. If I see someone with a dog I turn around or cross over the road. I did not enjoy walking her due to her aggressive nature. 6 months ago I got a Victoria Stillwell dog trainer and was given lots of handouts to work with and we practiced on a fake dog. Waste of time and money. Last week I contacted Peter and he come today. We discussed setting boundaries ..no sleeping on the bed... diet and door manners. Within 20 minutes we were outside and Peter had a number of dogs with him. My dog reacted at one and this was corrected we then walked for an hour and as it was sunny we came across lots of dogs. My dog though a little unsure never once reacted in an aggressive manner. I am absolutely made up with my dog and I will recommend Peter to anyone with a reactive dog. In the second session Peter says my dog will be off leash and coming back on the recall. If this happens I will be over the moon! Peter thank you.

  • review rating 5  I have a 8 year old yellow Labrador that for the past 6 years was a nightmare to walk. Every dog it came across it was lunging at, barking and just frothing at the mouth, I thought she was being aggressive. I started timing my walks so I could avoid people early morning and late evening. I recently moved to South port and decided that I had to call someone for help. I contacted Peter and he explained my dog was scared and then implemented a plan. In the second session I walked through the biggest park in South port on a sunny afternoon with my dog. It was great. We also went into a Dog Café something I never thought I would do. I can work my dog anywhere and anytime now. If you have a reactive Dog call Peter at Dog harmony as he will sort this out for you.

  • review rating 5  After our session Bailey is like a new dog, yesterday I was able to invite a stranger to bailey into the home. Bailey lay in his bed and eventually fell asleep allowing me to relax and enjoy my friends company. It's still early days, but the improvement we see already is unbelievable - we cannot thank you enough.. Bailey is now what we would call a normal dog. If you have a problem with your dog just give Peter a call.

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.
