 Legacy Dog Psychology

The most loving of dog owners are sadly misunderstanding their dogs needs, a dog needs someone to take charge and  make them feel safe or they will feel the need to do it for themselves.....

AA Dog Rescue

AA Dog Rescue is dedicated to saving 'pound dogs'. These are dogs who through no fault of their own, have found themselves places in council pounds where they have 7 days in which to be claimed or go into rescue. Unfortunately, there are only so many rescue spaces available and when their 7 days are up, if they are still there, they are put to sleep!!! We do our upmost to get them out but are losing an average of 200 dogs a day! Please help us to help them!!! The lucky ones that we do get are fully assessed, neutered, vaccinated and chipped. An adoption fee of 100-150 will apply. Every time someone adopts a dog, it means we can save another!!! - See more at:

More Than 30 Years Experience Helping These Truly Amazing Animals

 Anti Social behaviour act 2014

It's very rare that the problem is the dog. The problem is usually a communication issue between owner and dog, we help to build those bridges with understanding.
A few opinions from others of the help received by Connors Legacy
"I can honestly say if it were not for Bill I dread to think where Kai would be now"!
"I can't recommend Bill highly enough. He has changed our lives and I will always be grateful"!
"he has never met my dog yet his tips work amazingly so really would recommend him"!
"We feel very secure now that we know a lot more about dog behaviour and their way of thinking"!

 Testimonials or Facebook Comments pages


Connors Legacy is very proud to say that we have been able to help every dog and owner that come to us for help. We have now been responsible for helping dogs all around the world via the power of Facebook and TwitterThis is simply because we are 100% committed to the welfare of the dogs, even dogs that other behaviourists/trainers have wrongly suggested to be destroyed because it has bitten or is aggressive with other dogs. We have helped the owners understand the behavioural concern and the best way to correct it.

Connors Legacy is here to help you to understand that if you are prepared to live with the things you feel your dog is doing wrong, then you maybe doing wrong by your dog. Please take the time to get to know your dog, understand their way of thinking and not what you think they are thinking as this would normally be the wrong way of thinking if you were thinking from a human point of view..

The aim of Connors Legacy is to give every dog owner a better understanding of how to communicate with their dog using the dogs own visual language, in the hope of stopping some, if not all of these headlines about dog attacks or even help to reduce the amount of dogs in rescue homes today.

Dogs do sadly already have a lot to be fearful of, or get anxious about in this world and by doing something as simple as stroking our dog at the wrong time could be the cause of many behavioural concerns. Dogs will only usually bite through understanding that they have no other option, which is usually driven by fear. Caused by a dog being treated as a child or when it is left to make decisions for it's own survival. Please love your dog, but offer it a chance to believe you can protect it and this would give your dog less need to protect itself. Please offer your dog more direction and training, dogs can and do train humans every day as to what they want, lets tip the balance by understanding our dogs and we may save more breeds from certain exile.




My name is Bill Gibson and although many would class me as a dog trainer/behaviourist, I believe I train the owners more than the dogs, offering a total understanding of how your dog thinks and the language they use, which helps to prevent further problems in the future. Dogs have been a passion of mine for as far back as I dare to remember, they are truly amazing animals. I took the time to understand dogs and wish to help you to understand them too.


It's very rare that the problem is the dog. The problem is usually a communication issue between owner and dog, I help to build those bridges with understanding.


I will come to your home to talk with you about what you believe to be the problem with your dog, as most issues will begin in the home and after assessing your dog, I will help you to understand the way your dog thinks. With understanding the way your dog thinks you can then understand why they act the way they do.  The retraining program will need to be undertaken by the whole family, if not then this will just make everything harder for your dog to understand and longer for your dog to re-balance itself, as there would be no consistency.


If you think I can help you with your dog then please contact me for a free assessment that can be worth more than 285, although travel expenses (t) may apply. Bill's Direct Number 07989473131*


We offer a total understanding of your dog, but if you are only interested in a particular training method, we offer that too.

Don't Blame The Breeds, Blame The Act.

The Dangerous Dogs Act


And RIP to all the other 'Pit Bull Types' and the other so called dangerous dogs that this Dangerous Dogs Act caused the unnecessary deaths of.


Domestic Dogs have been bred through the years to please humans. A dog would need to be trained that it was ok to bite another dog or human. Any other time, the domestic dog would only usually bite through fear and there would usually be no other option. They would also usually give a warning before doing so, like a growl or bark. Police and Security dogs need to be trained to act the way they do.
