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.
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...

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 thought it was going to take months to train our spoodle puppy. We worried that it would always be a bit of a work in progress. The speed with which Liarne trained Bertie amazed us. It almost felt like we'd cheated! We basically just picked up where Liarne left off. Bertie is a happy dog anywaybut now he clearly understands what we want and what the structure is he seems very content.

When we first brought Marley home, we thought we had made a mistake. Brandy didn't take well to her at all. Thanks to your guidance, they are now great friends. You helped us show Brandy how to accept Marley and made life at home much easier.
Outside our home, Marley was a very shy and timid puppy. She would hide behind the kid's chairs at puppy school. Thank you for allowing her to repeat puppy school until she gained her self-esteem. She is so confident that she has to greet and play with every dog she meets, even the large ones. Most big dog owners are surprised at how Marley isn't afraid of their dogs. I always tell them how great puppy school and her teacher was.
It used to be very hard and stressful to walk brandy. She would bark at every dog she saw. Adolescent class was amazing. Brandy now focuses on me instead of the other dog and we can walk pass calmly, even if they are barking at her. She is a new dog and we have developed a beautiful relationship. We even returned the thundershirt!!
Thank you so much for everything. We have learnt and gained so much. Both girls are so well behaved and are happier. We have bonded so well thanks to you. I will always recommend you and your classes.
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.

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!
