COCKER SPANIEL TRAINING

The Cocker Spaniel is essentially a working dog and many owners are attracted by their looks and personality. However, because they are working dogs, they are very energetic and want to work. They need early training and a firm hand and at Leeds Dog School we can train the owner to handle these great little dogs.

COCKER SPANIEL OBEDIENCE TRAINING

Obedience is vital in your dog.Having an obedient Cocker Spaniel makes ownership of your pet an absolute pleasure! At Leeds Dog School we will train your dog to a high level in obedience.We also believe that this should involve the owner at every stage and so our training is one to one with you and your dog. It’s important that your dog obeys your commands and we work with you until you are confident in controlling your dog.

Owners with obedient pets get more satisfaction and have a stronger bond with their pet. As Cocker Spaniels are working dogs owner training is vital so that the owner can enjoy having such an energetic pet.

A well-trained Cocker Spaniel is safer to have around family and friends, and is at a lower risk than an uncontrollable dog. Your Cocker Spaniel must come back when it’s called in the face of dangerous situations such as near a busy road.

  • Heel Work –  walk to heel on the lead
  • Heel Work – walk to heel off the lead
  • Recall - return to you when called
  • Down – “down” on command
  • Sit – dog will sit when you stop walking
  • Come –  come to you in the “frontal sit” 

COCKER SPANIEL PUPPY TRAINING

Puppy

Training your new puppy should be started as soon as possible from 8 weeks. You’ll be amazed just how quickly they learn and at a very early age and it’s just fun for them and they love it!

Leeds Dog Training School train your puppy on a 1-2-1 visit to your home in Yorkshire rather than in classes as we believe this is much more effective.

  • Toilet Training - we will show you the easiest way to toilet train your puppy
  • Crate Training - we will show you how to crate train your puppy
  • Biting - we will show you how to stop "mouthing" or biting
  • Destructive Behaviour - we will show you how to stop destructive behaviour

STOPPING BAD BEHAVIOUR BY YOUR COCKER SPANIEL

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 particularly with a Cocker Spaniel. 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. Our Cocker Spaniel 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 any problems you may have.

  • Stop pulling on the lead
  • Stop lunging at other dogs
  • Stop barking at dogs & people
  • Stop jumping up at people
  • Stop aggression
  • Stop running away and not returning
  • Stop constant barking

Rob is very knowledgable and knows dogs! He had our Cocker Spaniel behaving within seconds, we implemented his methods and the changes have been lasting! Will use Rob again in the future.

Rob was fantastic, straight to the point and solved our Cocker Spaniel guarding immediately! He is extremely knowledgeable and is very logical in his approach to behavioural issues. Could not recommend his services more!

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. I’m looking forward to our next session!

A-maz-ing! After only 15mins of 1st session my year old Cocker Spaniel was more calm and obedient. Rob left me with 'homework' and ways to reinforce the practice of good behaviour checks. Now planning another session to develop great results in walking to heel and control in recall. Thanks

Absolutely brilliant! Couldn’t recommend more. Got my working cocker spaniel to recall in just an hour! He can now walk off lead at my side which was impossible before!

Polite, understanding, professional and realistic approach to training me and my 8 year old ridiculously cocky cocker spaniel! Gone from living in the misery of a very noisy dog not knowing which way to turn to correct her behaviour, to having a quiet, chilled out and calm household. And within an hour... sounds to good to be true but living proof it’s working! Thank you Rob  🙂
