Ethos

West Lancs Canine Centre was founded in 1989. Based in Formby, we are ideally placed for dog owners across the North West in Liverpool, Southport and further afield. We have been established for 25 years in 2014, a testament to our dog training knowledge, skills and our beliefs. We have trained thousands of people and dogs by sticking to one clear cut message – “We Train You To Train Your Dog”. Our overall goal isn’t just to produce trained dogs but trained and knowledgeable dog owners who are then able to build on their understanding, if they wish to.

Over the years we have always been proud of the support we give our dog owners, they can contact us at any time, e-mail for free advice, call down to the centre 5 days per week if they needed to; we are always here to support them during their dog`s training. Most people don’t just look at our group classes but the whole list of full time services we provide; one to one training to focus on their specific needs, home visits to help with the day to day training, doggy day care to support them when its needed, day training to give extra help with training and much more, the complete package.

At West Lancs Canine Centre our key beliefs are centred on three points; positive motivation (a dog will not learn unless they are motivated first), owner motivation (if there is a motivated owner then a trained dog will soon follow), safety (have a safe environment for the dog to train but also ensure that owners are safe with their dogs) – we find if we stick to these core points with a few additional elements at times, we get the results that have made us one of the U.K`s leading dog training centres.
