STOPPING BAD BEHAVIOUR WITH ELLAND DOG TRAINING

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.

  • 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
  • Stop barking at the door

OBEDIENCE TRAINING VIDEO

ELLAND DOG OBEDIENCE & DOG TRAINING

Training you dog to be obedient is vital for the owner and vital for the dog. A disobedient dog is not a happy dog as it has no stability as it doesn't know the rules. Owning a dog should be a pleasure not a chore. Our Elland dog trainer will train your dog in basic dog obedience on home visit and will show you the commands so that you are able to follow up the training. We will go for a walk with you in the local park or wherever you walk your dog to ensure that you are comfortable with your dog and know how to control the dog.

  • Heel Work – dog will be taught to walk to heel on the lead without pulling.
  • Heel Work – dog will be taught to walk to heel off the lead ignoring other dogs.
  • Recall - Your dog will return to you when called.
  • Down – dog will be taught to “down” on command and remain in this position until released.
  • Down – Your dog will ignore other dogs when in the "down".
  • Sit – dog will sit at the owner’s side as soon as they stop moving without a command.
  • Come – dog will come to the owner in the “frontal sit” position.

PUPPY TRAINING VIDEO

PUPPY TRAINING

Puppies go through phases that can make you wonder why you wanted a puppy to begin with. They jump up at people, bark constantly, and bite. All this is perfectly normal but needs to be stopped so that your puppy becomes well behaved.

At Elland dog training we are very experience in training puppies to grow up to be well behaved members of your family. Our training is based on correction and reward as the only way your puppy will ever learn is if there is a clear and consistent connection between your puppy’s actions and your reaction.

We train your puppy at your home one to one and on a walk with you in Elland so that you can learn how to correct and reward your dog. Working with you is an essential part of the training which is why we do not offer classes. Our training is all one to one which is both quicker, more effective, and suited to your family circumstances.

  • 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 PUPPY BAD BEHAVIOUR

Some trainers believe that giving your puppy treats is the best way to stop bad behaviour but in our opinion relying on treats exclusively just does not work. Your puppy dog may learn how behave but only does it at because there's a treat at the end of it and eventually they just stop working. Essentially you are trying to bribe the puppy to behave properly and it just does not work. Our puppy training solves problems with bad behaviour as this is our speciality and stopping bad behaviour is vital and should be done as soon as possible.

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!

    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 !! He showed us simple but effective techniques that work and explained the psychology begins it so you understand . A very genuine , knowledgeable man who wants to help people to enjoy their dogs and make lives easier. Will definitely be booking another session to address pulling on lead and recall and feel very confident that Rob will be able to address . Thank you so much . Highly recommended .

    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.

    Would highly recommend.

    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.

    Just had our first session, so impressed with how it has gone! The hour started with our 6 month old GSD ripping a hole in Rob's jumper and ended with a calm puppy. Just successfully mopped the living room floor with a spectator rather than "helper". Looking forward to the next session. Thanks so much!

    I contacted Leeds Dog School for help in controlling our Labrador's incessant and aggressive barking at anyone who comes to the house. It had reached the point where my own mother has stopped visiting because of the din my dog makes. Rob came out and showed us a very simple technique which worked immediately and is easy for the whole family to implement and commit to.

    Had our first session today with Rob. It's not rocket science what you learn, it's sensible and practice lessons in dog behaviour. We love our 2 year old black Labrador, but he runs rings around us, and we are too soft. Not anymore, Rob has show us how to gain control and correct Finley. So we have less stress with our dog. Looking forward to the next session.

    Rob came to our house to help us with our 5 year old Doberman. In less than 15 minutes he had stopped her barking when people came to the door. We've seen a massive improvement in her behaviour already since he came and can't wait for him to come back to help us tackle her response to joggers, cyclists, etc.

    Rob was able to quickly demonstrate the techniques we had been lacking to get both our spaniel and wire haired pointer to walk to heel. A very simple yet effective correction that has solved 3 years of problem behaviour on the lead.

    Very knowledgeable, highly recommend Rob! Sorted my 1 year old Frenchie out within the first 10/15 minutes of being with him, felt like i had a completely new dog. Looking forward to the next session!!
