Harvard and I will be forever thankful for your words of wisdom, patience, kindness, knowledge and pure genuineness.
You are truly a walking/talking dog bible. Harvard is so much a better dog, and I a better owner. We regularly have admirers that are so impressed with his mannerisms and its all thanks to you!
Thank you again and hope that there are many more dogs and owners that are blessed with your experience.
Hi I'm Fafa,
When I first came home at 8 weeks old dad called Liarne to help him be a better dad.I also went to Liarnes puppy school with dad.I quickly learnt to sit, wee and poo outside, be nice to other dogs, leave it, come, eat with good manners, walk with good manners, not eat the furniture, not talk too much and not jump up and bite. Im sooooo happy, everyone loves me!!

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 is an exceptional trainer with a deep and instinctive understanding of animal behaviour. As the President of Australian Support Dogs, I am a strong supporter of training programs that emphasise positive reinforcement. I believe that Liarne and her training techniques are best of breed and would recommend her to anyone seeking a compassionate, reliable and dedicated trainer for their four-legged companion.

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.
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.

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!
