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!
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!
Ruth came to see us to help stop our 8 week old puppy from biting our hands and feet. In just 1 hour she showed us a really helpful correction technique that he is gradually responding very well to. Ruth was happy to talk through any other issues/aspects and gave us great advice and support overall. Many thanks Ruth and Leeds Dog School, I am sure we'll be calling on you for help again in the near future!Sophie Abbott 20 Jun 2019
Thank you so much Rob for being so kind and patient with helping us with Kiwi and her bad behaviours around jumping and barking. I was gobsmacked how quickly you were able to train both us and her. Chuffed to bits thank u so much and we’ll continue with the tools you’ve provided us with.Juliette Beacher 07 Jun 2019
A gentleman called Rob came out to us today to rid our 3 month old German Shepheard of his bad behaviour. Myself and my partner were really struggling with the dog as he was very defiant which was causing a lot of stress in the household. However the method we were shown today has proven to be extremely positive and actually works as our dog has changed in a matter of an hour. We are so happy we chose this company as the results are amazing all we can say is thank you and we will definitely be using them again for on and off lead walking.Chelsey Greenwood 01 Jun 2019
I couldn’t recommend Rob and his team highly enough. Rob came to see us a little while ago to help us with our 5 month old Labrador who was being overly boisterous when meeting people and playing. Within minutes she was drastically better and the results have continued to be great! Rob gave us tips for the future on how to overcome potential issues down the road and they have really helped.James Brassington 30 May 2019
Just had my second dog training session with rob and just like the first session it went amazing. For 6 months my 3 Doberman’s have been dragging me around the streets and no matter wot advice I’d been given in the past non of it worked 😩 after just 2 minutes with rob my dog was walking in harmony 🤗 I couldn’t believe it finally I can take my dogs for a walk rather than they take me for a spin. Thank you rob you are amazing xxxBridie Murphy 30 May 2019

Thank you so much and we will definitely be booking another session soon! I would 100% recommended!lizzie cunneen 19 Apr 2019
Wow I must admit I was skeptical as to are they going to be able to help well within the first 10 minutes of Ruth taking our border collie on the lead I was blown away it was like watching a different dog being walked The difference in our dog now is amazing all this just in 1 visit a massive thanks to Ruth you have made a great differenceSteve Paula and tezStephen Brown 12 Apr 2019
Fantastic service! Kyle fixed our problem within minutes and it’s been brilliant ever since. Parker our 9 month old English Springer Spaniel was awful on the lead and within 24 hours I was able to take him for a walk on my own and he didn’t pull once. Would definitely recommend and will be using again for recall training.Emma Cawood 31 Mar 2019
would of put 10 starts if i could, Kyle fixed my crazy american bull dog cross in 5 minutes !!!!!!!!!! took him for a walk and behaved perfectly. I feel so much happier an confident with my dog 100% worth every penny. Lovely guy great knowledge can't wait for the next session.Louis Perera 27 Mar 2019
We have had dogs for over 20 years and never needed to call in a trainer before but the aggression our 4 year old rescue Doberman was showing was getting out of hand. When Rob came, he instantly assessed our dog ( and us ) and gave us a simple but very affective method to correct this behaviour. It worked practically immediately and has continued to work in the days after. Hopefully we won’t need Rob again as he has given us the tools to control our very adorable but feisty dog, but we wouldn’t hesitate to call on him again.thanks Rob ( and Ruth) Vicki, Ian and Stan xxxVicki Tams 17 Mar 2019
Can’t believe the change in our dog in less than half an hour my dog stopped his constant barking best nights sleep in 5 weeks since we got Ernie. No more stress for us and Ernie he is like a different dog, my partner came home from been away a couple of days and could not believe the difference Ying and Yang. I would recommend Rob to anyone life changing !!!Annette Cullingworth 15 Mar 2019
