About Steve Cain
I’m Steve Cain, the second generation of dog trainer in my family, I am the founder and owner of Allsorts k9 training and an animal reiki master.
I work with professional people who have young families to create balance and harmony in their lives, I enable change in the simplest and most effective way taking a holistic view on the issue.
after spending my life both living with and working with dogs, amongst many other species, I have witnessed so many floors in the way these animals are treated and trained,
all living creatures deserve our respect and are entitled to the best possible quality of care, I see the problem as being a lack of knowledge, understanding and empathy, these combined with the fast pace and high expectations put upon us from life are a recipe for disaster. I can help!
My long term aim is to build a animal center which provides a full range of services available to everyone at affordable prices. I want to educate and help people to have a deeper more fulfilling life with their pets making sure the general public have access to top quality training, information, therapies and support for the lifetime of their pet.

. Tricks and media training
. Behavioral problems

. Multi dog households,
. Motivational obedience workshops and training days.

. Multiple species households.
Why pick me
. I have grown up in multi dog species households having once had 14 dogs and 2 litters of puppies at the same time, my mother used to rescue and rehab German shepherds and train police sniffer and detection dogs.
. I competed at high levels in obedience for many years with various breeds of dog from a very young age, this means I love to get into the nitty gritty detail of an exercise or training session, I enjoy finding the right motivator for both owner and there dogs then repeating of an exercise until it's bang on.
. I’ve been training now for many years, I have seen first-hand how training techniques have changed over time and have enjoyed adapting my training and gaining a few qualifications in animal behavior and physiology, this gives me a deep insight into the workings of the dog and what makes them tick.
. I work best with working dog breads such as Collies, German shepherds, sight hounds and crossbreeds,
. I love to work closely with clients over a period of months to really see them grow, to watch their lives change as their confidence comes up and the belief in themselves and their dog.
. I re balance life by giving my clients effective management strategies from the offset and then superior obedience training techniques that I’ve tried and tested.
