Dog bad behaviour like human behaviour is a very complex subject but bad behaviour in a dog can make an owner’s life a misery. Solving problems with bad behaviour and aggression is our speciality at Leeds Dog School.
Many of the problems are very common and with work with your dog and just as importantly, with you, they can be solved.

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
YOU CANNOT STOP BAD BEHAVIOUR WITH A TREAT-IT DOES NOT WORK!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Oliver was brilliant in helping us with our new dog who is a professional at escaping from the lead and refusing to go for walks. Oliver has helped give our confidence back and now Jake is walking to heal! We are amazed! Thank you Oliver we can now enjoy walks once again! NicolaNicola Lunn 24 Nov 2020
My Jack Russell Terrier Bubbles was pulling on her walks and aggressive to other dogs after one session she walks nicely and during the session was able walk nicely past another dog. Ollie gave me some great tips and on our next walk I could already see the improvements. I would absolutely recommend the Leeds Dog School for any training requirements.Karlene Arewa 27 Oct 2020
Ollie was brilliant he came and helped us with our 7 month old English Bull Terrier Edward who was pulling on the lead and pulling to other dogs and jumping up. He took us out with Edward and showed us how to stop the pulling and correct his behaviour. He was extremely helpful with the information he told us including what collar was best to use and train him. Definitely recommend 🙂Victoria Ferguson 18 Oct 2020
We contacted Leeds Dog School as our 2yr old male German Shepherd was pulling on the lead and very very reactive to other dogs. We hadn't had the dog too long so no idea on his past history. Steve stayed for over 3 hrs on his first visit and managed to get my dog walking along side his own which was amazing. However, my dog reverted back to his old ways despite using the correct technique so Steve came back a few week later.. We didn't make any further progress on that occasion so Steve suggested we go to see Rob for further help. We visited Rob who helped us sort out the situation on the day. However my dog is still reactive to other dogs and we are continuing to work on this. I have found Steve and Rob to be very helpful and genuinely want us to succeed to sort our issues out. They have both offered to assist further if we need it which I find reassuring. To me this is over and beyond what a lot of trainers would do. Thanks Guys.MsFive0 14 Oct 2020
Rob & Ollie are fantastic. We have a Patterdale Terrier who is 13 months and from 8 weeks old we have been training our dog. At 8 months our dog started doing what he wanted, jumping up at and nipping people, the trainer we were using was no help at all, with the methods he was using. At 11 months my wife wanted rid of the dog until we met Rob and Ollie. Ollie came to the house for an hour and our dog was a different animal, 4 weeks later our daughter wanted some additional guidance. So we had a second visit to refine what we were doing. Rob did the training this time and within less than a minute had our dog doing what he wanted. Rob then spent time with us to go through what we were doing wrong. He showed us how to stop our dog from barking at other dog and houses when out and to walk to heel without pulling. Unlike other trainers they do not turn up in a brand new vehicle with all the fancy trimmings, what they do is show you how to train your dog to do what you want it to do. They don't rip you off and will tell you if you are wasting your money, they don't want you to sign up to weeks and weeks of training or into a training pack. What they did for us in 2 hours was unbelievable, all you have to do is listen to what they tell you and be consistent with your dog, Thanks Rob and OllieMatthew Hird 12 Oct 2020
Ollie came round and showed us a tremendous number of techniques to improve our dobermann pup's behaviour including walking to heel, recall, correcting bad behaviour such as jumping up and picking up objects. Picked up a lot of valuable insight and practical advice and our dog enjoyed learning an impressive amount of knowledge in such a short space of time. Definitely recommended and we will be working with these guys again in the future.Joseph Egglestone 09 Oct 2020
I cannot express how fantastic Rob is! I will recommend them to everyone who has a dog, words cannot describe what a difference their advice has made to our lives and our lovely pups.Sarah Smith 07 Oct 2020
You will not regret booking in with them, they are incredible value for money and more effective than any classes or online lessons I've tried.
Rob was great he came and seen me and my 5 year old American staffy pulled badly on the lead and would be aggressive to other dogs but an afternoon with Rob sorted it all out!! the way he trains and understands dogs was awesome he really shows you in detail how to correct the behaviours and how manage your dog. Went over and above to make sure I was confident overall 10 out of 10 trainer and person!!Rhyse Martin 29 Sep 2020
STEVE came to visit last Saturday in an attempt to stop my very friendly, 2 1/2 year old golden retriever launching himself at people and other dogs. He had lots of patience showing us how to manage him and went with us on a training walk. I have a changed dog! I now feel much more confident taking him out and walking past people as he doesn't jump up! I am really pleased with the progress we have made in a week. Steve was fantastic and a really nice guy with so much patience. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Thank you! Kath & LibertyDonna Paxford 25 Sep 2020
We are currently in the middle of training sessions with Rob and our rescue Mallinois, Helo (Helius). My husband and I cant believe how quickly Rob was able to have Helo walk to heel - like within a few minutes he was walking to heel and not dragging my husband down the road. Really nice, enthusiastic guy who obviously knows what he is talking about. I feel far more confident about being able to manage Helo now, given his issues as a rescue Mali. Rob has provided us with great videos which help us during the week as we practice what we learned at a session. We are finding Rob is able to deal with the issue we had - and more. We are all looking forward to next week, and Helo had so much fun and mental stimulation today, he is totally relaxed now as you can see 😀 Really glad we chose this trainer, and hope to continue working with long term. Thanks Rob!!Billie 20 Sep 2020
One session with Rob completely changed our dog. He went from being an anxious, reactive GSD to being obedient and calm. Rob is so passionate about what he does and it really shows in the quality of his work and his extensive knowledge of both dog training and dog breeds. Whenever I have a query, Rob is so happy to help and provides lots of helpful resources to use to support our training. Already have and will continue to recommend to everyone. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!A Google User 18 Sep 2020

Rob was amazing, if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes I would never have believed it. My 1 year old Vizsla Murphy is now walking beautifully with me, I'm no longer being dragged on a walk like a rag doll!! His understanding and love for dogs is enormous and I am really looking forward to working on Murphy's recall. Many thanks Rob see you soonTeresa Finnerty 17 Sep 2020
Today I took my 2 bandogges puppies over to Rob and Ollie to address some behavioural issues they were having and wanted some confidence in handling them due to their size. Both rob and ollie made me feel very relaxed and at ease straight away and showed me some basic handling techniques to stop pulling and give me more overall control. There expertise and knowledge in this area is fantastic and they have a real passion for what they are doing and the dogs best interest in place all the time! I feel alot more confident now and have a training plan for the future so I know exactly what I need to be doing and how to do it. Cannot recommend Leeds Dog School enough for their help in both training and answering any questions I had both for now and in the future. Looking forward to applying it myself and working my dogs and discovering their capability.Brooklyn Gale 30 Aug 2020
Thank you Rob and Ollie 🙂
Went to Rob for a lesson with my German shepherd and it was brilliant. Rob, Ollie and Ruth are so lovely and knowledgeable. They gave me some great tips on what I was doing wrong and how to correct. Within MINUTES Rob had everything I was concerned about, corrected. I would 100% recommend. Thank you so much!Lorna Butterfield 25 Aug 2020
