I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful results of your training with our Reggie. As you know we had consulted several trainers prior to you, and now believe this only traumatised him further. We really appreciated your gentle common sense approach, once you explained dog energy and behaviour it all falls into place.
We have implemented all of your recommendations. So, he no longer shakes when we leave him and most importantly is not aggressive towards other dogs or people. Now all 3 of us are enjoying the walks with our well-adjusted happy boy!! Cannot thank you enough...

Liarne has been really helpful with our dog, Max.
Max is a 3 year old rescue dog who, whilst settling in well in the first 6 weeks that we have had him still had some things that we wanted to change in his behaviour. Liarne was great at identifying the root cause for this behaviour, and suggested simple actions. It was great training for the humans let alone the dog!
Max suffered from a bit of separation anxiety, struggled to settle down in the evening and despite knowing lots of commands, didn't know how to sit!
Thanks to Liarne's training, Max's behaviour with these issues improved significantly (very quickly), even learning how to sit in one evening training session! I would recommend her to anyone who has any training problems with their dog or puppy.

Liarne mentored me as a new trainer some years ago now. We have remained friends since and although we offer similar services Liarne is the one I refer the 'Tricky Stuff' to. I consider her an expert in the art of solving challenging behaviour problems, such as separation anxiety and aggression.
IF you follow the program Liarne designs for you and your dog, you will get results.

As first time dog-owners, we really didn't want to do the wrong thing with training but after one home visit, Liarne completely reassured us in the best way to raise Poppy.
Being an excitable Labrador X King Charles Cavalier we needed all the help we could get and Puppy School has been invaluable - Liarne's attitude, experience and indepth knowledge of how dog's think make it easy to see why her methods really work.
All the tips and tricks are not only fun for us but Poppy doesn't even realise she's training! I will definitely be recommending K9 trainer to my friends, thanks Liarne!

I just wanted to thank you so much for helping us settle in our beautiful rescue dog Mickie. We wanted to give her the best chance at rehabilitation from her old horrible life and I truly thank you for loving her as much as we do and having her best interests at heart. I have learnt more in my sessions with you than in all my time as a dog owner (since I was two years old!!). Your puppy classes were an informative and enriching experience and I am very grateful for the opportunity to observe a master at work!
I respect your methods and attitude to dogs and I can see that you are a fellow animal lover, which is why I have absolute trust in you with our special friend.
We are enjoying the most special bond with our dog and after following your advice I believe she is a happy and well-adjusted dog who is drawn to people and I think this is a wonderful achievement considering her history.
Thanks again and keep in touch,
We tried everything to stop our dog digging under the fences of our neighbours. We squirted water into her face, made loud sharp noises, locked her into the laundry, took her back to the whole, pointed at it and said "Bah" and even tied her up and gave her a slap. Every dog trainer we brought into the house had another method. None of them stopped Sally's digging! We were about to give up and just have the courtyard paved as my husband's business partner recommended Liarne.
She explained to us that our dog was suffering of separation anxiety as we were at work during the day, we followed Liarne's advice to the letter and after only three days Sally stopped digging under the fence altogether.
Whenever we want advice, we contact Liarne and by just following her advice, we can maintain a happy well behaved dog.
It’s time you start walking your dog, not them walking you. Turn your walk into a pleasure. It doesn’t have to be a miserable and frustrating experience.
It’s time to leave the park, yet your puppy is ignoring your pleas to come? As you reach for his collar he dashes out of reach. Now the chase begins.
Our puppy training school will teach your dog self-control to prevent the terrifying experience of watching your dog escape.
Wearing your good suit? Hands full of grocery bags? The kids bringing home a bunch of friends? And your dog is the first to jump all over them. It might have been cute as a puppy but now that your dog is all grown up?
You’ve left your puppy with plenty of wee-mats, the door to the garden was open…and never the less your puppy weed everywhere but where he was supposed to...
You just bought a brand new pair of shoes yesterday only to catch your dog in the act of chewing them. You can’t tie your shoes because the shoelaces have been shortened again! Your computer won’t work and you realise your pet has chewed through the cable!!!!
How do they know to pick exactly the things we love?
All dogs bark, howl or whine to some extent. But too much is too much!
Digging is deeply ingrained into a dog’s DNA but that doesn’t mean you can’t redirect that behaviour.
Dog aggression can be anything from lunging on leash, growling, barking, snarling, teeth bearing, air-snapping and finally biting. Don’t wait for an accident to happen and start enjoying your walk again.
Coming home to destruction, neighbours complaining about barking, urine everywhere? Separation anxiety is distressing for owners and dogs.
No matter if playful biting or aggressive behaviour, teach your pet good manners and that skin is off limits!
