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.

  • Heel Work - dog will be taught to walk to heel on the lead
  • Heel Work - dog will be taught to walk to heel off lead
  • Recall - dog will be taught to return on command
  • Down - dog will be taught to lie down and remain until released
  • Down - dog will ignore other dogs when in the down
  • Sit - dog will sit when owner stops moving
  • Come - dog will come from the down to the owner in the frontal sit

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.

  • 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 when teething
  • 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.

    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.
