FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR DOG TRAINING
Q.WHAT BAD BEHAVIOUR BY YOUR DOG OR PUPPY CAN WE 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.
- 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
Q.WHAT DOG OBEDIENCE DO WE OFFER?
Below are the main areas of obedience but of course we tailor our training to your requirements as we do not believe that “one size fits all ” when it comes to training.
Owners with obedient pets get more satisfaction and have a stronger bond with their pet. Having a dog that is well trained, obedient, happy, relaxed, responsive and easy for you to manage means you will get more pleasure from dog ownership.
A well-trained dog is safer to have around family and friends, and is at a lower risk than an uncontrollable dog. A dog must come back when it’s called in the face of dangerous situations such as near a busy road.

Q.WHAT EARLY PUPPY TRAINING DO WE OFFER?
A mistake that many owners make with their new puppy is not giving their dog a regular and consistent set of rules and routine. If the puppy has no rules then it will simply be chaos!
We can help you with this vital early puppy training and show you how to take control or your puppy will run rings round you.Teaching the owner is just as important as training the puppy.The owner is the leader not the puppy.

- Destructive Behaviour - we will show you how to stop destructive behaviour
Q.WHAT PUPPY OBEDIENCE TRAINING DO WE OFFER?
Puppy Training of your our new puppy should be done as as soon as possible. You’ll be amazed just how quickly they learn and at a very early age.It’s just fun for them and they love it! We train all breeds from just a few weeks. They are taught obedience just the same as an adult dog. Then we train you so that you can keep up with it.
Training the owner is very important as you must learn the commands and the proper way to correct your puppy as they can forget. This why all our training is one to one with your dog and we do not offer classes. We believe that classes involving a number of young puppies can be very distracting for your dog.
Q.DO YOU OFFER GROUP 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!
Q.WHAT BREEDS DO YOU TRAIN?
We train all breeds from toy dogs to working dogs such as German Shepherds, Springers, Dobermans, Rottweilers, in fact every breed you can think of!
Q.WHAT AREAS OF YORKSHIRE DO YOU COVER?
We train throughout Yorkshire. Wherever you live in Yorkshire, we come to your home as well as going for a walk locally to you if necessary. All our training is 1-2-1 wherever you live in Yorkshire.
Amazing! I can’t recommend them enough, so friendly, professional and understanding! I have a rescue dog with many many issues! I wasn’t expecting anything to work but I’m completely amazed at the results from just 1 session, followed up by helpful tips and videos. I can’t express how grateful I am and how incredibly life changing this has been already!Molly Wright 20 Oct 2019
Rob came to see my very headstrong 9 month old Border Collie today. The techniques he taught me to show my dog that I am the boss have already started to work he is a lot more well behaved and walks on the lead so much better. Rob is very knowledgeable, approachable and his experience with dogs really shows. I would 100% recommended Rob to anyone who really wants to understand their dog. I’ve tried a lot of trainers but Rob’s techniques really get results.Niall Kelly 10 Oct 2019
Ruth came to help with Bruno today. He pulls on the lead and jumps at people, within 10 mins he had stopped jumping! Then the test, a walk, Bruno walked beautifully after 5 mins. We are over the moon with the tools and advice that Ruth gave us, thank you so much 😁He even walked better tonight and didn't jump at our daughter when she got home. Deffo recommend Leeds dog school.jane maude 10 Oct 2019
We have a 5 month old beagle and as neither me or my partner have owned a dog before didn't know if she was being naughty, a puppy or just a beagle. We got Ruth round who identified she was a bit of a puppy but that the hierarchy was definitely not as it should be and this is what was causing most of the behavioural issues. Ruth sat with us as we talked through our experiences with our dog and listened and picked up on the areas where we were going wrong and afterward sat with us and the dog and showed us how to address the problems, after showing us for a bit let us try and gave tips to help us work with her better. After a bit of inside work we headed out on the lead and got some advice and guidance whilst on walks. I can happily say that even after a day the advice and guidance we were given has shown noticeable improvements both in and out the house. Ruth was professional, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. I would 100% recommend her to anyone who is having trouble with their dog.joshua simmons 10 Oct 2019

After one visit my mind is completely blown. I had an issue with my dog barking and ignoring my commands, unless I had food. Within 15 minutes she was already responding and obeying my instruction.Jo Billington 03 Oct 2019
I would 100% recommend Leeds Dog Training. Worth every penny and, if you look at the lifespan of a dog it’s a very small financial investment for a happy dog and owner for all the years you are together.
Ruth came to work with us and our 11 month old Labrador, Barney. Barney is very boisterous and excitable, pulls heavily on the lead and barks constantly. In the time that Ruth was with us, she taught us how to correct his bad behaviours and managed to get him to walk nicely on the lead! We can’t wait to use all of the techniques Ruth showed us. Thanks for all your help.Bethany Brooke 03 Oct 2019
Such a relief to have Rob give me the tools I need - cannot wait to work with him more ... future is bright to have happy dogs....Carol Buchan 02 Oct 2019

Thank you for giving me hope
