30 years of Dog Training!


“we teach you to train your dog”

Guy Richardson, former Police Dog Handler with Merseyside Police founded West Lancs Canine Centre with his wife Jean in 1989.

Guy started taking one to one training sessions at the centre. Within 1 year he had 4 weekly classes, within 5 years he had 16 weekly classes and one of the most reputable dog training establishments in the North West.

In the year 2003 Guys son Craig came on board and the centre started offering multiple services including; Classes, Day Care, One to One Training, Behaviour Development & Holiday Care. It was also around this time that we started offering The Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme.

Things progressed from there and WLCC maintained and grew its position as one of the U.K`s leading dog training facilities. In 2010 Guy semi-retired to solely focus on Expert Witness work within the U.K & Craig took over the training centre.

Over the past 30 years we offer thanks to everyone that has supported us, our loyal long term staff & volunteers including past & present members of West Lancs Dog Display Team & of course all of our past & present customers.
