We offer general obedience training and anxiety & aggression behaviour modification, as well as highly specialised training for any breed, age and size of dog. My elegant and simple-to-use, yet highly efficient training technique uses simple commands to help you improve your bond with your dog.

Dog Training St Helens

Hi, my name is Peter Hargreaves. I am a professional dog trainer & behaviourist with 35+ years of experience in training and modifying the behaviour of dogs. I started training in the Royal Marines, where I trained military dogs to search for IEDs and, of course, protect marines. I then spent 20 years training gundogs. During this time, I competed at the highest levels of competition and became a highly respected judge regularly invited to judge performances at prestigious European working competitions.

Training with world-renowned trainers has taught me which training methods and techniques work best with different breeds and ages of dogs. Taking only the best approaches and aspects of these techniques, I have developed a training method that works – every time and with any dog, regardless of breed, age or size. This method now allows me to excel in resolving problem dog behaviours.

resohhurce guarding2

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.

seperation anxiety 3

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

Dog

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

Dog Manners

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

Dog Playing

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

Problem Behaviours

Such behaviours may, for example, consist of human or dog-on-dog aggression; resource guarding or separation anxiety; fearfulness and/or a whole range of other issues you may experience with your dog.

Does your dog:

  • Wrench your arm out of its socket by pulling on the lead every time you go for a walk?
  • Scare the life out of visitors by jumping all over them?
  • Act aggressively (i.e. growling, barking or biting) towards strangers or other dogs?
  • Regularly destroy your belongings by chewing on them while you are out without him?
  • Run away every time he spots an open door/gate?
  • Annoy neighbours by barking excessively?

Worry not. I am contacted for help by distraught, frustrated owners facing the same problems every week – and I have helped every one of them. I can help you, too.

What Can I Do for You?

I can assist you in building a better relationship with your dog. A relationship that will allow you to enjoy his company and go for walks with him any place and any time. Thriving on structure & routine, dogs struggle without leadership and clear guidance. As members of YOUR pack, they look for this guidance and leadership from you, the owner. Specifically set for your dog, my training program will help you provide both – and your dog will thank you for this by becoming the happy, well-mannered pet you desire.

My Approach

My training approach improves communication between you and your dog by focusing on his primal drives and instincts. Heavily depending on your involvement, this program is specifically designed to help your dog and you – and while it is focused predominantly on your dog, some training elements will be focused on you. Training your dog is not something you ‘dip into’ every now and then. It is something you must commit to for life. My role is to assist you and provide you with the necessary support to help you and your dog along the road to success.

Improving Relationships

Changing your dog’s behaviour must begin with changing the problem’s root. This means changing your relationship’s context. Based on my 35+ years’ experience, my highly effective, yet incredibly simple 5-step program is designed specifically to achieve this.

There is no point in boring you to tears with the science of this approach, but I will tell you that all my training is fully hands-on with both you and your dog – because training you to work with/handle your furry friend in an assertive and calm fashion while training your dog invariably produces results.

Learning House Rules

Using your pet’s primal needs and instincts, we begin by structuring his life. Your dog MUST learn his basic house rules.

Much of my program utilises a crate. Using your dog’s natural “den instinct” enables me to give him a “safe place” he can go to relax and calm down. Combining consistent house rules with proper scheduling increases the confidence your dog has in you as his leader. My experience has taught me that many dogs’ behaviour issues are down to over stimulation and lack of sufficient mental stimulation. My training programs can and will resolve this.

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.
