Since a child I have had a love of dogs and as soon as I could, I brought one into my life. The arrival of Harvey (my Working Cocker Spaniel) led me to further my interest in dogs and I began to read untold amounts of books with subjects including canine psychology, behaviour, training, first aid, homeopathic remedies and scientific research. This reading soon made me realise I had to be more actively involved in the world of dogs and I and decided to better my knowledge and put pen to paper. This resulted in me completing a course with the Academy of Dog Training and Behaviour. After three years of study, I now have 6 diplomas in understanding dogs, setting up a training class, puppy training, bronze level course, silver level and finally gold level instructors course.
To add to my knowledge and understanding of dogs, and to be able to support them further, I volunteered to attend Rosemullion Vets in order to be trained in canine first aid.
Whilst training, and to fulfil my desire to work with dogs, I gained a full CRB check and volunteered with the Cinnamon Trust and I have been walking ‘Scamp’, a Cairns Terrier, for some time now: supporting his owner adding to his quality of life.
Modern Dog Training, a New Approach.
I believe it is vitally important for owners to give their dogs the opportunities and the tools they need to live successfully in a human world. A dog that is given consistent guidance from an early age grows up to be a confident dog and a confident dog has no need to show anxiety-based behaviours.
Modern behavioural science has proven that forceful handling such as physical punishment, leash yanking, or making a dog submit by rolling it on its back is psychologically damaging for the dog and has potentially dangerous consequences for owners. Instead, the most successful modern training theories suggest that reinforcing good behavior with rewards while using constructive discipline is much more successful and this is exactly what my programmes are shaped by.
Positive reinforcement (i.e., giving the dog a reward in the form of praise, play, food, toys, etc. when it responds and offers an action or a behavior that you like) has been shown to be the most effective way to train.
Our Testimonial on Liam's Behalf:
Liam truly has a passion for dogs. Harvey (his Working Cocker Spaniel) is a very sociable dog which loves to interact he is a shining example of Liam's training techniques - a lovely natured dog that mixes with others effortlessly - we credit this to Harvey's good up bringing and the love and care he recieves.
We have known Liam, his partner and Harvey since we first set up business in 2012 and have become good friends. We still walk Harvey to this day and it is a pleasure he has excellent recall, is very obedient to commands and is alot of fun to play with - you couldn't wish for a better dog he's like one of our family.

Liam has gained the necessary qualifications and specialises in training dogs of all sizes, breeds and age. Whilst Kate and I do encourage any training that your dog has had and enforce your methods we do not claim to be professional trainers.
We have had so many enquiries about Local Dog Trainers from associates and clients so we thought we could at least point you in the right direction.

In groups of up to ten puppies from around 13 to 18 weeks of age (or once vaccinated) your puppies will have the chance to meet and play with pups their own age. Once a puppy is vaccinated it is important to socialise with other dogs and well organised, professionally run classes are great way to build confidence and expose your puppy gently to different sights, sounds and breeds of dogs.
Usually in a local hall, our puppy parties are relaxed and fun. You can expect to come away knowing about – how to master basic commands, safe ways to play with your puppy and information on essential care and management. You will go away with info cards so you can practise at home. Most of our puppy owner’s strike up friendships and enjoy further training and walks together!
Some puppies walk into our parties full of confidence and are happy to play with their new friends, others find it quite scary and will want to sit quietly with you and just watch and that’s just fine!
The whole family is welcome! It’s great for you all to get involved with a puppy’s training and socialisation as it really does sow the seed for a happy well-behaved adult dog!
£15 per 1 Hour Session
The period between 12 and 16 weeks is crucial for a puppy. During this time your puppy is like a sponge, willing to absorb new experiences. It’s important to use this time to prepare your puppy for things that might be faced in later life (such as buses, trains, boats, busy roads, crowds, noisy places etc). This will ensure your puppy grows up to be a confident dog.
If you would like help with your puppy’s induction I would be delighted to take your puppy out, ensuring these first experiences are positive.
If you’ve missed the four-month period it’s not too late, as the first six months of your puppy’s life are the most important when preparing for the things and events that will be experienced in later life.
Included will be a ‘sound cd’ of common noises you puppy will need to get used to be a confident adult.
Care and management details are also included in this puppy induction.
