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.

    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.

    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 xxx

    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 !!!

    I met Rob for the first time today with my 9 month old lab . I was a bit sceptical has ave been through lots of training sessions with various trainers and not much success. Rob was straight talking, no nonsense and extremely knowledgeable. He had my lab walking with him, obedient and showing him respect within minutes, something I had been trying months to do. With his guidance and training (within the session ) I took Jess on a walk later in the day, following his techniques and advice I had the best walk ever! No lunging or pulling ! Exciting to develop on this and then looking forward to booking in another session for recall . Thank you !

    Had one session with our Rottweiler and all our problems were sorted with simple correction, can’t recommend this guy enough! Leaps and bounds above all the other trainers we’ve had. Honest and good at what he does. Any problems I’d definitely get in touch.

    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!!
