14 DAY INTENSIVE RESIDENTIAL DOG TRAINING PROGRAM PLUS  FULL HANDOVER SESSION

Contact Me Today

Gone are the days when it takes many weeks to rehabilitate a dog. With this 14 day intensive program your dog will stay with Peter and his family which includes Peter’s two children and three dogs.

Your dog will be the only dog staying with Peter and will live as a family member, not in a stressful kennel facility with several other dogs. This program gives Peter and the family the opportunity to spend a lot of quality time with your dog and provide the training needed to give you back a trained dog.

There is no quick fix when changing behaviors or training obedience, but there is a tool that makes it much easier for the owner and dog to communicate with one another.  Most of our residential dog training clients will receive all the necessary equipment which will allow you to clearly communicate with your dog up close or from a distance with incredible reliability and confidence.

All dogs learn obedience while here but the commands themselves are not where the change comes from.  Its how the commands are used.

Upon completion of this program you will come and pick up your dog and we will walk it anywhere you want. The local nature reserve or Formby beach I will spend as long as it takes to get your comfortable walking your dog in any situation. I will show you and your family how to have a stress-free relationship with your dog. We will walk your dog anywhere you choose and go through all the new boundaries that has been set for your dog and you will have unlimited telephone support throughout the life time of your dog’s life.

For owners who want the absolute best for their dogs, but find themselves pressed for time, my 14 day residential training is your “go to” option. I train bad dogs to become good dogs and teach stressed out owners to be calm and confident dog handlers.

The cost of the 14 day residential training program costs £995.00. Contact me now to start the transformation of your dog.

Your dog will learn recall, basic obedience and dog manners. When I practice a down command for example, I am getting the dog to lay down – I am waiting for the dog to relax.  This connects laying down with becoming calm which is the basis for creating a balanced, well behaved dog.

Once dogs know the rules I take them out into the world to practice their new way of being.  Trips to local nature reserve, parks and shopping centres are part of the process I use to teach the dogs to be calm and relaxed everywhere I go.

When Peter practices a down command for example, he is not only getting the dog to lay down – he is waiting for the dog to relax.  This connects laying down with becoming calm which is the basis for creating a balanced, well behaved dog.

Once dogs know the rules I take them out into the world to practice their new way of being.  Trips to local nature reserve, parks and shopping centres are part of the process I use to teach the dogs to be calm and relaxed everywhere I go.

The process comes to a close with an intensive handover day at the end of the 14 days where we will go to the local usually busy beach or nature reserve dog. Here I teach you everything needed to maintain the results once the dog is back in your hands

My training programme comes with all the training equipment (additional cost) you need to help you and your dog be successful!

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!

I was contemplating selling my Caucasian shepherd recently because of the strange behaviors it picked up about a few weeks ago, but had to reevaluate my decision when I saw Dog Harmony via Google Search. I was able to get them across and they helped solve the unusual behavior from Pete. I'm really thankful for all the care they showed Pete, he's now back to his old ways, and everything is now fine, unlike before.read more

These guys are amazing. Peter was awesome to work with! He was professional and knew exactly how to deal with my dog's behavioral issues. I would recommend him and Dog Harmony to anyone looking for a trainer. Peter is an amazing trainer. He worked with us and our 12 week old lab-not an easy task. He listened to our needs, worked on exactly what we asked and made us better dog owners and our puppy a better puppy! He covered all the basic training as promised on the website and took it beyond that. We will be starting e-collar training soon with Peter and can't wait to take our puppy training to the next level. We could not imagine doing this training with anyone other than Peter and Dog Harmony. I recommend them to everyone who has dog/puppy training needs.read more

I was at a loss. I felt like I had done everything right. I'd read books, followed youtube videos, and spent hundreds of dollars working on basic obedience. But Truman was only getting worse. He had turned from a confident puppy to an aggressive adolescent. I was worried I wasn't going to be able to keep him.Then I found DOG HARMONY Dog Training and everything changed. After one session with Peter I began to see improvements. By the end of my five sessions Truman was a different dog. New friends coming over? No problem. Truman is happy to see them! Hanging out in the front yard when the mailman comes? Truman couldn't care less.read more

My dog arrived back in the states totally cool and calm. Thanks to peter I have a much calmer relationship with my dog.read more

We contacted Peter after being unsuccessful with another dog trainer. The issue we have is with a very bouncy 8 month old dog who after persevering with basic training persists in prolonged very loud barking and lunging at other dogs when on the lead.Trying to deal with this issue only using treats, as previously advised, was insufficient to take her focus away from the other dog. When she gets to the other dog there was no aggression just over excitement to meet the dog, however owners and dogs were obviously concerned with this unacceptable behaviour and so were we. Peter spent 2 sessions with us. He came to our home and on the first session initially went through some basics of gaining control and setting boundaries around the home sharing his knowledge and experience. We then spent time in our garden with his dogs getting our dog used to being close to other dogs remaining under control. We thought this was excellent and most effective. We worked on the lead and used the equipment brought for us to try out by Peter. We were very impressed to see an improvement in her behaviour straight away. Then by following Peter's suggested plan we found a marked improvement in her calmness and general behaviour. The second session, a few days later, was in a busy country park with lots of dogs and people. Peter ensured the equipment was being used correctly initially working with his dogs under his guidance. The rest of the session was spent walking with our dog along with his, both on and off the lead, ensuring our dog's behaviour was under control. We have followed Peter's suggestions over the last few days since the training. Its early days but we now feel we have the knowledge and tools to control and train our dog more effectively and are consistently seeing small improvements every dayread more

The sign of a great dog trainer? One that knows how to train the dog owner as well as the dog. Peter Hargreaves of Dog Harmony understands that the success of a dog's training is contingent upon its human being willing to put in the hard work to support and continually reinforce the skills taught during training. Once trained, Peter does not disappear. You are well-equppied with an after-care plan and all the tools necessary for continuted success.read more

Let me tell you, Dog Harmonyis probably one of the best decisions my family and I have made for our dog! When we first got him he was extremely hard to control and did not get along with our two other dogs but now, he is an angel! I could instantly notice the impact they made on our dog. Very well behaved and extremely great listener! Couldn’t have asked him to do a better job! Thank you Peter SO MUCH!read more

Our nearly 1 year old is a high energy active boy and needs lots of attention to keep him from becoming destructive. I was given Dog Harmony details from a friend at a point when i was close to breaking, as much as i love our boy Murphy i couldn't cope anymore with coming home to a wrecked house whethis id been gone for an hour or at work all day, i thought we were going to have to give him up. This broke my heart. I felt like i was doing everything wrong and making him unhappy, i felt hopeless. Peter came and assessed Murphy and gave me that hope back, she made me feel like i was good enough for this fur baby and that we could make it work. We decided the best way forward was training with Peter Hargreaves. Murphy has gone from destroying everything in sight when left for half an hour to been able to last 4/5 hours alone without touching a thing, he is more independent and well behaved in his own company than i thought would ever be possible. He comes home shattered after a training. He couldn't be happier to spend most of his training with Peter. I am so grateful to Peter for taking on our love bud when you are already so busy. You have changed our lives for the better. Thank you so much for loving and caring for our Murphyread more

OMG!!! Peter has been round today to show us how to go on with our Labrador dog as he is driving us crazy. Almost to the point that we want him gone!! With 2 hours Peter by staying calm and teaching me to stay calm has helped Murphy with his unfriendly behaviour to other dogs and his pulling on lead. I cant believe how within 2 hours he had my dog doing as he was told. Peter even had him walking off the lead which we have never dared do before. Got lots of tips and learning to do now so he can be good for us. Well impressed. Thank you Peter.read more

Peter came out to see, me my husband, and our two German shepherds, within minutes we were put at our ease, a trainer that speaks our language lol, my dog is reactive towards others, well off we went for a walk, Peter explained everything he could see, corrected it, and well wow, she behaved, I felt confident, great first meeting, starting lessons tomorrow can't wait, we would recommend Peter every day of the week, and trust me I've carted my girl to every sort of training there is to try and resolve her very stressful and anxious behaviours. Now I am able to walk her in my time rather than selecting times that I was aware were no other dogs. Next Summer both dogs are now able to come to France with us on the family holidayread more

Even though I grew up always having a dog, I knew I was going to need some help once I got a puppy of my own. Dog Harmony was the perfect choice. Our trainer, Peter, is fantastic! He is fun, friendly, and so effective. But I think my favorite thing about him is how much He loved my girl, Louise. I will definitely be using Dog Harmony to continue training as my pup gets older. They are the best!read more

Hamish our 8 year old Labrador X developed issues towards other dogs over a 2-3 year period. He would lunge, growl, bark and generally react very badly, to the point that I stopped taking him out as I had lost my confidence with him. 4 hours with Peter and what a transformation! I never thought it was possible, but I can now walk Hamish on his lead through a crowded high street, across a busy beach or, as we did recently, around a large dog show and he was so well behaved. We both enjoy our walks now and go out of our way to find places that are busy with other dogs to continue our training. Massive thanks to Peter for providing me with the techniques and confidence to work with Hamish and for the ongoing support she provides.read more

When we arrived home from the training session with Peter Bliss came through the door and it was 3 hours later when she moved for the first time! As you predicted, she was shattered! Previous training we have undertaken – whether with Bliss or our previous dogs – by comparison with your course has addressed only part of the dog’s needs. We came away shattered too, but also delighted with what you have helped us achieve. The standard of training we expected to be high, but it exceeded our expectations. With dogs (and perhaps more relevantly – people) at different standards with different needs you somehow dealt with my husband and I in a great and relaxed manners and the talks were great.read more

Our dog Brody is the best dog ever, and a huge part of that is because of our work with DogHarmony! The walk rehab and one-on-one sessions have turned our dog into pure magic. Peter not only gives great tools for all situations, but truly loves your dog in the process and gives you great tools as an owner to see where you're transferring your own anxiety and fear to your pup. Contact Peter today for an amazing transformation - for you and your dog.read more

Can't recommend Peter highly enough. He took the time to explain why we were continuing to have problems with our dog - who has been nervous and reactive since we got her, despite using several other trainers - and showed us what to do. After just a couple of sessions we took her on holiday for a week - and had no problems whatsoever - walking past other dogs on crowded streets, off lead on the beach and sitting in pub gardens - all things we would have dreaded before. Many thanks Peter - your support and advice has been invaluable.read more

When my fiance and I got our Boxer puppy, we knew professional training was going to be a must. We found Peter through good mutual friends who RAVED about Peter and the work he did with them and their two beagles. From our first session on with Peter, we could see constant improvements with our puppy. Peter would take time to make sure we were doing all of the techniques properly, even if our patience grew thin, he remained calm and willing to walk us through it, from crate training to walking on a leash. He not only explained to us what to do, but also why. Why our dog interperpates things humans do the way he does and how we can better communicate with him. Our now not so puppy boxer continues to excel in his training using the tips and tricks Peter taught us. I think the training is the best investment we made in both our relationship with our dog and most importantly in his health and well being.read more

When my partner, Keith and I decided we were going to get a Rottweiler puppy we were both rather anxious. Unlike me, Keith had never owned a dog before and was concerned about making sure the puppy was trained correctly. My concerns were because we had just finished a two-year renovation of our home, and I didn’t relish the thought of a puppy wrecking it! As it turns out neither of us had anything to worry about. Peter has been absolutely amazing and I am so happy that we contacted him. After a brief conversation with him, we decided to go for the ‘puppy training package’. In two-hour session prior to the puppy’s arrival Peter talked through everything we needed to know about getting the puppy home and our first few days together so that Keith and I felt confident and well prepared for the task ahead. Bobbie’s arrival (including the six hour journey home after picking her up) was completely stress free and by following the advice we had been given we were both amazed at the speed at which she became comfortable with her new family and home. Over the following weeks Peter has worked with us and given us the knowledge and ability so that Bobbie is growing up to be a well behaved, confident and loving puppy. If we ever needed advice we knew we could always call him and the support he gives has made this experience amazing. I would recommend to anyone who is getting a puppy (even if you have owned dogs before) that if they want to give their new arrival the best start they possibly can, then they should arrange to see Peter. Keith, Bobbie and I cannot thank him enough and we will forever be grateful.read more

I have a large collie that was reacting all the time against other dogs and I have no idea why. I have spent hours on the internet but was just getting more confused. I got a dog trainer in but all he did was yank my dog quite sharply on its lead. I thought it was heavy handed but seem to work. I walked with the trainer and the dog was well behaved. However as soon as I started working with my dog all it did was react against other dogs. I contacted the trainer and the response was he has done his job and that was the end of that. After a month I contacted Peter Hargreaves and it was explained to me that the problem was my fault as I was nervous around my dog. Peter supplied proper equipment and with 2 hours my dog was walking and not reacting against other dogs. Soon after I let my dog off its lead in the local park and it came back. I am delighted my dog is now well behaved, I have the tools to walk my dog with confidence and the whole relationship is much better. I would recommend Peter Hargreaves to anyoneread more

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.

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 dogread more

I would like to say a big thank you to Peter. Benji is a rescue puppy from Bulgaria. My sister in law took him on as a family dog but unfortunately he turned out to be a very nervous dog and completely shut down. She asked me to take him as I had experience with dogs. Benji would not move from the settee, wouldn't go out in the garden, i use to have to carry him. Wouldn't eat until during the night when no one was around. He was frightened of anything and everything. Wouldn't let anyone stroke him or even play with other dogs. I contacted Peter. He came to see us both. Within the first three hours he was here he turned Benji around. Had him walking in the garden, walking down the road on his lead. What a difference. He slowly started to play with other dogs when we went out and actually walking, not me carrying him! He then came back a few weeks later as Benji still wouldn't let people near him and again within a couple of hour's Rick was stroking him and walking him down the road. Benji has so much more confidence now. Still some way to go though. Peter is amazing. Such a caring person. There at the end of the phone. He's not only helped Benji but helped me also how to understand Benji's mind and what he is going through. I would recommend him to anyone who needs help with their little one. Thank you so much.read more

For owners who want the absolute best for their dogs, but find themselves pressed for time, my 14 days residential training is your “go to” option. I train bad dogs to become good dogs and teach stressed out owners to be calm and confident dog handlers

The cost of this program is £995 and this excludes all necessary training tools.

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM CREATE SUCH AMAZING CHANGE?

The secret to how I help dogs become happy, balanced & well behaved is quite simple and starts with the daily enrichment I provide combined with discipline (rules, boundaries, limits) and then lots of affection...in that order.

I never allow for aggression or over excitement and I don't nurture fears or insecurities.  I are constantly stimulating the dog's mind and body, and I consistently enforce rules & boundaries.  When you combine that with 2-3 different training sessions per day its easy to see why the change can be so incredible.

There is no quick fix when changing behaviors or training obedience, but there is a tool that makes it much easier for the owner and dog to communicate with one another.  Most of our residential dog training clients will receive all the necessary equipment which will allow you to clearly communicate with your dog up close or from a distance with incredible reliability and confidence.

All dogs learn obedience while here but the commands themselves are not where the change comes from.  Its how the commands are used.  When Peter practices a down command for example, he is not only getting the dog to lay down - he is waiting for the dog to relax.  This connects laying down with becoming calm which is the basis for creating a balanced, well behaved dog.

Once dogs know the rules I take them out into the world to practice their new way of being.  Trips to local nature reserve, parks and shopping centres are part of the process I use to teach the dogs to be calm and relaxed everywhere I go.

The process comes to a close with an intensive handover day at your home when I return your dog. Here I teach you everything needed to maintain the results once the dog is back

My training program comes with all the training equipment you need to help you and your dog be successful!

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!

This broke my heart. I felt like i was doing everything wrong and making him unhappy, i felt hopeless. Peter came and assessed Murphy and gave me that hope back, she made me feel like i was good enough for this fur baby and that we could make it work. We decided the best way forward was training with Peter Hargreaves. Murphy has gone from destroying everything in sight when left for half an hour to been able to last 4/5 hours alone without touching a thing, he is more independent and well behaved in his own company than i thought would ever be possible. He comes home shattered after a training. He couldn't be happier to spend most of his training with Peter. I am so grateful to Peter for taking on our love bud when you are already so busy. You have changed our lives for the better. Thank you so much for loving and caring for our Murphyread more

OMG!!! Peter has been round today to show us how to go on with our Labrador dog as he is driving us crazy. Almost to the point that we want him gone!! With 2 hours Peter by staying calm and teaching me to stay calm has helped Murphy with his unfriendly behaviour to other dogs and his pulling on lead. I cant believe how within 2 hours he had my dog doing as he was told. Peter even had him walking off the lead which we have never dared do before. Got lots of tips and learning to do now so he can be good for us. Well impressed. Thank you Peter.read more

Peter came out to see, me my husband, and our two German shepherds, within minutes we were put at our ease, a trainer that speaks our language lol, my dog is reactive towards others, well off we went for a walk, Peter explained everything he could see, corrected it, and well wow, she behaved, I felt confident, great first meeting, starting lessons tomorrow can't wait, we would recommend Peter every day of the week, and trust me I've carted my girl to every sort of training there is to try and resolve her very stressful and anxious behaviours. Now I am able to walk her in my time rather than selecting times that I was aware were no other dogs. Next Summer both dogs are now able to come to France with us on the family holidayread more

Even though I grew up always having a dog, I knew I was going to need some help once I got a puppy of my own. Dog Harmony was the perfect choice. Our trainer, Peter, is fantastic! He is fun, friendly, and so effective. But I think my favorite thing about him is how much He loved my girl, Louise. I will definitely be using Dog Harmony to continue training as my pup gets older. They are the best!read more

Hamish our 8 year old Labrador X developed issues towards other dogs over a 2-3 year period. He would lunge, growl, bark and generally react very badly, to the point that I stopped taking him out as I had lost my confidence with him. 4 hours with Peter and what a transformation! I never thought it was possible, but I can now walk Hamish on his lead through a crowded high street, across a busy beach or, as we did recently, around a large dog show and he was so well behaved. We both enjoy our walks now and go out of our way to find places that are busy with other dogs to continue our training. Massive thanks to Peter for providing me with the techniques and confidence to work with Hamish and for the ongoing support she provides.read more

When we arrived home from the training session with Peter Bliss came through the door and it was 3 hours later when she moved for the first time! As you predicted, she was shattered! Previous training we have undertaken – whether with Bliss or our previous dogs – by comparison with your course has addressed only part of the dog’s needs. We came away shattered too, but also delighted with what you have helped us achieve. The standard of training we expected to be high, but it exceeded our expectations. With dogs (and perhaps more relevantly – people) at different standards with different needs you somehow dealt with my husband and I in a great and relaxed manners and the talks were great.read more

Peter was absolutely incredible not just with our puppy but with our older dog too. He is so understanding and great with the dogs. Rosie our 4 month old puppy was so quick to listen and learn all of the lessons Peter taught him and me. So grateful for the time and effort He put in and wouldn’t want anothim trainer! We will be doing more training once the pup gets a little older and so happy we were able to get connected to such a great trainer right off the bat. Thank you, Peter!read more

Our dog Brody is the best dog ever, and a huge part of that is because of our work with DogHarmony! The walk rehab and one-on-one sessions have turned our dog into pure magic. Peter not only gives great tools for all situations, but truly loves your dog in the process and gives you great tools as an owner to see where you're transferring your own anxiety and fear to your pup. Contact Peter today for an amazing transformation - for you and your dog.read more

Can't recommend Peter highly enough. He took the time to explain why we were continuing to have problems with our dog - who has been nervous and reactive since we got her, despite using several other trainers - and showed us what to do. After just a couple of sessions we took her on holiday for a week - and had no problems whatsoever - walking past other dogs on crowded streets, off lead on the beach and sitting in pub gardens - all things we would have dreaded before. Many thanks Peter - your support and advice has been invaluable.read more

When my fiance and I got our Boxer puppy, we knew professional training was going to be a must. We found Peter through good mutual friends who RAVED about Peter and the work he did with them and their two beagles. From our first session on with Peter, we could see constant improvements with our puppy. Peter would take time to make sure we were doing all of the techniques properly, even if our patience grew thin, he remained calm and willing to walk us through it, from crate training to walking on a leash. He not only explained to us what to do, but also why. Why our dog interperpates things humans do the way he does and how we can better communicate with him. Our now not so puppy boxer continues to excel in his training using the tips and tricks Peter taught us. I think the training is the best investment we made in both our relationship with our dog and most importantly in his health and well being.read more

When my partner, Keith and I decided we were going to get a Rottweiler puppy we were both rather anxious. Unlike me, Keith had never owned a dog before and was concerned about making sure the puppy was trained correctly. My concerns were because we had just finished a two-year renovation of our home, and I didn’t relish the thought of a puppy wrecking it! As it turns out neither of us had anything to worry about. Peter has been absolutely amazing and I am so happy that we contacted him. After a brief conversation with him, we decided to go for the ‘puppy training package’. In two-hour session prior to the puppy’s arrival Peter talked through everything we needed to know about getting the puppy home and our first few days together so that Keith and I felt confident and well prepared for the task ahead. Bobbie’s arrival (including the six hour journey home after picking her up) was completely stress free and by following the advice we had been given we were both amazed at the speed at which she became comfortable with her new family and home. Over the following weeks Peter has worked with us and given us the knowledge and ability so that Bobbie is growing up to be a well behaved, confident and loving puppy. If we ever needed advice we knew we could always call him and the support he gives has made this experience amazing. I would recommend to anyone who is getting a puppy (even if you have owned dogs before) that if they want to give their new arrival the best start they possibly can, then they should arrange to see Peter. Keith, Bobbie and I cannot thank him enough and we will forever be grateful.read more

I have a large collie that was reacting all the time against other dogs and I have no idea why. I have spent hours on the internet but was just getting more confused. I got a dog trainer in but all he did was yank my dog quite sharply on its lead. I thought it was heavy handed but seem to work. I walked with the trainer and the dog was well behaved. However as soon as I started working with my dog all it did was react against other dogs. I contacted the trainer and the response was he has done his job and that was the end of that. After a month I contacted Peter Hargreaves and it was explained to me that the problem was my fault as I was nervous around my dog. Peter supplied proper equipment and with 2 hours my dog was walking and not reacting against other dogs. Soon after I let my dog off its lead in the local park and it came back. I am delighted my dog is now well behaved, I have the tools to walk my dog with confidence and the whole relationship is much better. I would recommend Peter Hargreaves to anyoneread more

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!read more

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 dogread more

I would like to say a big thank you to Peter. Benji is a rescue puppy from Bulgaria. My sister in law took him on as a family dog but unfortunately he turned out to be a very nervous dog and completely shut down. She asked me to take him as I had experience with dogs. Benji would not move from the settee, wouldn't go out in the garden, i use to have to carry him. Wouldn't eat until during the night when no one was around. He was frightened of anything and everything. Wouldn't let anyone stroke him or even play with other dogs. I contacted Peter. He came to see us both. Within the first three hours he was here he turned Benji around. Had him walking in the garden, walking down the road on his lead. What a difference. He slowly started to play with other dogs when we went out and actually walking, not me carrying him! He then came back a few weeks later as Benji still wouldn't let people near him and again within a couple of hour's Rick was stroking him and walking him down the road. Benji has so much more confidence now. Still some way to go though. Peter is amazing. Such a caring person. There at the end of the phone. He's not only helped Benji but helped me also how to understand Benji's mind and what he is going through. I would recommend him to anyone who needs help with their little one. Thank you so much.read more
