LEEDS DOG SCHOOL STOPPING BAD BEHAVIOUR

Many owners have a mistaken belief that dogs should somehow know “naturally” how to behave well. The truth is that “behaving well” is a human concept: dogs can’t be expected to know the difference between “good” and “bad dog behaviour”. They need to be trained to behave in a way that their owners want them to behave. Simply saying "bad dog" is pointless as the dog has no idea what you mean.

At Leeds Dog School we train your dog and you! We believe that one to one training with you and your dog at your home is the best way of training and stopping dog bad behaviour. This allows us to concentrate on your specific problems. All this means that you can follow up our training and make sure your dog does not slip back into its old ways.

This training is probably more important for your new puppy as it’s vital to get them on the right track as soon as possible.Puppies learn quickly what behaviour is acceptable but they have to be taught.

We visit your home and we will go for a walk with you and your dog or puppy to ensure that you know exactly how to correct bad behaviour and to reward good behaviour. Ignoring dog bad behaviour is wrong it should always be corrected when behaving badly and only good behaviour should be rewarded.

BAD BEHAVIOUR WE CAN STOP

Some trainers believe that giving a dog treats is the best way to train but in our opinion relying on treats exclusively just does not work. Your dog may learn how behave but only does it at because there's a treat at the end of it and many times treats just stop working. Essentially you are bribing the dog to behave properly.Bad behaviour by a dog makes an owner’s life a misery. Our dog training solves problems with bad behaviour as this is our speciality. Many of the problems are very common and we work with your dog and just as importantly, with you at your home or on a walk, to solve the problems.

THE DANGEROUS DOGS ACT

Many dog owners are unaware that the Dangerous Dog Act concerns their dog as most people think it only refers to banned breeds such as Pit Bull type. This is simply not true as the law covers all breeds.

Section 3 makes it a CRIMINAL OFFENCE for any dog of any breed from Chihuahua to Great Dane to be dangerously out of control in a public place and the offence is committed both whoever was in charge of the dog and also the owner even if the owner was not there at the time.

We stop your puppy behaving badly!

What problem dog behaviour do you deal with

If your dog is, jumping up at people or you, stealing food, destructive, running out of the door,  barking constantly, aggressive to humans or dogs and more … you need home 1-2-1 home training. Two hours is usually enough to cure most problems because we train you to take control and then you don’t need us anymore.

What areas of Yorkshire do you cover

We train throughout Yorkshire. We come to your home wherever you live in Yorkshire and work with you and your dog or puppy on a 1-2-1 basis.

What breeds do you train

We train all breeds of dog from "designer" dogs such as the cockapoo or labradoodle through to working dogs such as spaniels and terriers. We also specialise in larger dogs such as German Shepherds, Rottweilers, Dobermans, all Mastiffs.

My dog is terrible when I go for a walk can you help

Pulling on the lead , running away and refusing to return, and barking and lunging at other dogs  are the most common problems we deal with. We go for a walk with you and we always choose a busy park and usually stop this in an hour.

What training methods do you use

Unlike some trainers, we only use “treats” in some circumstances particularly with high level obedience training. They are over used and eventually do not work with problem behaviour. Our method is correction and then reward with praise. Enticing or “bribing” a dog is counter-productive and they soon spot how to manipulate the situation. The most important training, however, is the owner training so that you can control your dog.

Do you have puppy classes

The short answer is NO. We simply do not think they work. There are too a many puppies and they just want to play with each other and are totally distracted. The owners cannot possibly get individual attention in an hour with 8 or 10 or more people in a class. We only offer 1-2-1 puppy training in your home because it’s quicker, more effective, and cheaper!

    Amazing! I can’t recommend them enough, so friendly, professional and understanding! I have a rescue dog with many many issues! I wasn’t expecting anything to work but I’m completely amazed at the results from just 1 session, followed up by helpful tips and videos. I can’t express how grateful I am and how incredibly life changing this has been already!

    Rob came to see my very headstrong 9 month old Border Collie today. The techniques he taught me to show my dog that I am the boss have already started to work he is a lot more well behaved and walks on the lead so much better. Rob is very knowledgeable, approachable and his experience with dogs really shows. I would 100% recommended Rob to anyone who really wants to understand their dog. I’ve tried a lot of trainers but Rob’s techniques really get results.

    Ruth came to help with Bruno today. He pulls on the lead and jumps at people, within 10 mins he had stopped jumping! Then the test, a walk, Bruno walked beautifully after 5 mins. We are over the moon with the tools and advice that Ruth gave us, thank you so much 😁He even walked better tonight and didn't jump at our daughter when she got home. Deffo recommend Leeds dog school.

    We have a 5 month old beagle and as neither me or my partner have owned a dog before didn't know if she was being naughty, a puppy or just a beagle. We got Ruth round who identified she was a bit of a puppy but that the hierarchy was definitely not as it should be and this is what was causing most of the behavioural issues. Ruth sat with us as we talked through our experiences with our dog and listened and picked up on the areas where we were going wrong and afterward sat with us and the dog and showed us how to address the problems, after showing us for a bit let us try and gave tips to help us work with her better. After a bit of inside work we headed out on the lead and got some advice and guidance whilst on walks. I can happily say that even after a day the advice and guidance we were given has shown noticeable improvements both in and out the house. Ruth was professional, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. I would 100% recommend her to anyone who is having trouble with their dog.

    After one visit my mind is completely blown. I had an issue with my dog barking and ignoring my commands, unless I had food. Within 15 minutes she was already responding and obeying my instruction.
    I would 100% recommend Leeds Dog Training. Worth every penny and, if you look at the lifespan of a dog it’s a very small financial investment for a happy dog and owner for all the years you are together.

    Ruth came to work with us and our 11 month old Labrador, Barney. Barney is very boisterous and excitable, pulls heavily on the lead and barks constantly. In the time that Ruth was with us, she taught us how to correct his bad behaviours and managed to get him to walk nicely on the lead! We can’t wait to use all of the techniques Ruth showed us. Thanks for all your help.
