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!
When I got my standard poodle pup, Oscar, I immediately was barraged with conflicting information from friends, pet shops, vets, and authoritative puppy books! I needed answers and I needed them fast...
....Enter Liarne! She was referred to me by word of mouth as being one of the best dog trainers in Sydney. Liarne immediately gave me advice on no-nonsense toilet training and house etiquette that worked almost immediately. She then, over the next few sessions, helped me with other puppy issues like teething/mouthing/nipping, jumping, focusing attention on me, walking on the leash, coming when called, and having control over what Oscar nibbles on in the park (that could one day save his life)...just to name a few.
Fast-forward to now, Oscar is 4 years old and has turned out to be the magnificent dog that he was always destined to be and Liarne has been there to support me all the way through. She is extremely professional and is always there for me when any issues arise.
Liarne's true love of four-legged creatures is evident when Oscar jubilantly bounds through the park to greet Liarne if he happens to see her. And, believe me, if Liarne is anywhere in the park, Oscar will find her! I would be more than happy to speak to any of Liarne's prospective clients and they should please feel free to ring me.

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!

We called Liarne back for some extra help with our six months old Airedale, Toffee, after being very confused with all the different points of view from friends, obedience school and Internet info on how to stop this growing dog from pulling during walks.
We first met Liarne at puppy school and found her methods of positive reinforcement and explanation of dog behaviour very insightful. We want training to be a great experience for our furry child as well.
Toffee loved the puppy classes, extra session and Liarne.
Thanks Liarne for all your help!
Liarne has helped us so much with our 7 month old German Shepherd. We had a lot of trouble with her hyperactivity levels, biting and insecurity problems. In only two sessions, Liarne bonded so much with our Ivy and gave us highly effective exercises to solve our issues with her.
They have helped her tremendously. She is now less of a biter and more of a kisser. She is also getting used to strangers and other dogs, as well as our socially awkward cat (which is a relief). We cannot thank Liarne enough for the things she has done for our dog and we'll be sure to recommend her to anyone facing similar problems.
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.

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...
