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!

    Absolutely Amazing! In just one session with Rob and he got our 15 month old sprocker spaniel to stop jumping up and on sofas and walking amazingly on lead! Taught us great techniques and knew his stuff. Brilliant!

    Rob has done a training session with me and my husky this afternoon and it was amazing. I was expecting to be dissapointed as my husky thinks he rules the roost but Rob had him obeying my commands in less than 10 minutes. I am looking forward to more training for us both. Thank you.

    Rob is very knowledgeable, he corrected my young whippet from constantly jumping up in less than 5 seconds. He has a wealth of experience and explains everything clearly. Thanks Rob

    Fantastic service! Our yappy Chihuahuas behaviour was corrected within five minutes. So simple, effective and it makes perfect sense. We are amazed!! It was clearly explained to us how and why to correct in this way and the results were immediate. Cannot recommend these enough! We are actually looking forward to going for a walk tomorrow!! Thanks guys

    We are so pleased with the training given to our new puppy - we cannot believe the difference. The change in Ralph after one session is amazing and we cannot thank you enough. We would definitely recommend Leeds Dog School without a doubt! Ralph is no longer a little mischievous rascal - thank you!!

    He shared his knowledge with us very well and was very clear with what to do. We had been trying training tricks that we had seen online for weeks before and nothing worked. However, within not even a minute of him teaching our puppy, she was completely obeying. We will definitely be back when we want to teach her recall!!! Thank you 😊

    The best hour of our to date! Rob is fantastic, and Vincent our Cockapoo thinks the same. Robs approach is realistic and achievable for us!

    We have a more well behaved dog, after just the one hour.We would recommend working with Rob, absolutely.

    After an initial telephone conversation with a lovely gentleman at Leeds Dog School , Rob came to see our 9 month old Labrador who was jumping up, stealing food, and making it difficult for me to leave the room without him barking or trying to follow me. Rob had an immediate impact . Everything he said would happen actually happened !!

    We have a 9week old golden retriever who was generally being a naughty puppy but we didn’t really know how to address the bad behaviour (biting, constant crying in the crate, jumping up etc.).We found Leeds Dog School on-line and given the 5star reviews from everyone, we decided to give them a call. A few days later Rob come round and literally within 10minutes we noticed a change in our puppies behaviour through us leaning simple but effective techniques.

    Rob is the Dynamo of the dog world !! Its like magic how he made such a difference in my chihuahuas behaviour so quickly and after only one session. I'm a VERY happy customer. I recommend Rob highly to any dog owner for any problem.

    Rob visited me and my 13 month Cocker Spaniel this afternoon and he was brilliant. He helped us set up the foundations of training so we can eventually let him off the lead. I instantly noticed a difference in his behaviour and I now enjoy walking him without him virtually pulling my arm off! I would recommend Rob to anyone, he really is excellent.

    We called Rob to help us with our 16month old mini schnauzer who constantly barked at other dogs and jumped up at people. Within 10 mins of meeting him there was already a change and now 4 days later we have a completely different dog! Walkies are a lot more enjoyable now

    Had this guy in my house less than 5 minutes and he had my 8 month old Labrador x Akita listening to what we said and also stopped her jumping up and chewing her lead. Absolutely amazing will definitely recommend him to anyone who need a dog trainer.
