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!
Rob is super professional and extremely knowledgeable his passion for what he does is great to see. Within minutes he had george like putty in his hand. We got Rob to deal with my mums dog who’s super sweet but a powerful dog. I spoke to my mum this morning and she passed on the following after our session with Rob.Matthew Marsh 06 Jul 2020
We’ve been on our walk just had the slip collar on and George was lovely to walk. It stopped him from nosying all the rubbish on the floor and also being too interested in cats.
We came across the usual pack of 3 dogs and I made him sit at the other side of the road and he ate his ham and cheese.
We also saw a spaniel which he hasn’t seen before. Again it was over the road but he showed more interest in it until I did the aha, sit and treats.
The hardest thing to remember is to pull up and not back. That foxes me I get all muddled, but we’ll get there I’m sure.
Also George is so interested in ham he forgets to wee and poo 😂😂
Thank you for your help x
When my daughter brought her puppy Bulldog over to my house it was complete bedlam with my dog & hers. They were manic & completely uncontrollable in their excitement. Within 5 minutes of Rob showing us what to do we saw a difference. Within 15 minutes they were calm & laid down. He was here for 1.5 hours & didn’t charge us anymore for staying longer. We didn’t get a chance to deal with my dogs unpredictable aggression so he is arranging for me to meet his dogs to deal with that too, at no extra cost. My dog can be fearful of men, which he picked up on immediately & he let me lead with my dog so as not to scare her. I really respected that because the last thing I wanted was for my dog to be scared. Would recommend highlypaula brown 05 Jul 2020

Rob came today to work with me and Luna. We were having problems with Luna jumping up at people and trying to get to other people and dogs on walks, not aggressively but wanting to play.Dave Clarke 30 Jun 2020
Rob showed me some great correct & reward techniques and Luna was a much calmer dog when he left.
Rob has given me the confidence to believe I can carry on with training, knowing he is there if I need him.
I have a 3 year old miniature schnauzer who barks at any person and any dog whenever we are out walking with her . Her barking is that bad it got to The point I was embarrassed to walk her . Met with rob today and wow , what a difference . Rob explained the methods used and how to correct , we then outside to put into practise . I can honestly say the correction method works brilliantly . I’m very confident in the methods that rob showed me and have no doubt that I will now be able to enjoy walking my mini schnauzer...... ? thanks again robKatie Mcbride 17 Jun 2020
We are originally from Leeds but live in Australia and recently purchased a puppy. Knowing the reputation of Leeds Dog School and having used Rob for other dogs when we lived in the UK, we knew we wanted their support for our new pup. Rob has provided support for our new puppy via the phone and video which has been so helpful. He provided a lot of advice and tips before we even received the dog and continues to train our dog. We really enjoy it too and couldn't recommend Leeds Dog School enough - you will not be disappointed!Rupa Chopra 10 Jun 2020

Today our Pomchi Bella had a 1 hour session with Rob - myself and my partner are over the moon with the results! We had tried EVERYTHING and I mean everything, to control Bella's excessive barking at people and dogs on walks. The things Rob taught us today were explained in a way which was so simple for us to then implement with her ourselves. We have just returned home from taking Bella on her first walk in a busy park post training session and it was the most stress free walk I have ever experienced with our lovely Bella, she is like a different dog. I started to get very anxious and embarrassed taking her by myself in busy areas, and would find myself avoiding people on walks just to save the hassle of her barking and lunging. This has been a huge break through for me personally and I can see how much more at ease Bella was. I have included two videos in this review of a before and after of Bella on a walk. Rob - we cannot thank you enough for your time with us today. Amazing!Saffron Madeleine 08 Jun 2020
We have just hired Rob to help train our rescue Chihuahua with barking at people entering the home. He explained his methods and how to implement them. He was very knowledgeable and professional. We didn't feel rushed at all in our session and it has certainly helped. Would definetly recommend and use again if needed.Richard M 31 May 2020
My dog was been aggressive with other dogs when out walking and we couldn’t get her walking with us she was always pulling however after 1 session with Rob she changed massively. He shows you how to change the behaviour and let’s you try it out yourself. He also sends you useful videos and is there to call if you need any extra help.levi eggleston 23 May 2020
Having recently bought a working line doberman I found training in the usual manner I have found successful with my previous dogs was not working due to the high drive of the dog, he was not getting the mental as well physical exercise he was bred to need (as explained to me by Rob) I Googled doberman trainers and Rob dye came up I looked through the information available on past training and reviews and decided to give Leeds dog school a call, Rob came out to us and explained both the differences in breeding and how training should reflect this, we had a 1 to 1 session, he was very friendly and informative my dog seemed to take to him immediately and was very receptive to the form of training and techniques he used, I have been left with a huge amount of information and gained confidence in how to both train and handle my dog and options on what route I want to take for future training .John Coward 17 May 2020
