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
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.

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, including Leeds, Bradford, Halifax, Castleford, Pontefract, Otley, Ilkley, Harrogate, York and surrounding areas.
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.Pat Mangion 14 Oct 2018
Saw Rob yesterday for the first time. On the phone I was advised that it would take one short lesson to get my Miniature Schnauzer to become obedient. Naturally, I thought 'yeah, right!'. The main problems were him barking at people who were walking past the garden and barking at other dogs and people on walks. Rob sorted these issues with ease.....how wrong was I!Phillip Barnard 03 Oct 2018
Brilliant time spent with Rob who has helped make a massive difference with our cockerpoo puppy Reggie - who can be pretty bonkers at times. Rob sorted issues we were having with him straight away! It was amazing how obidiant Reggie became so quickly. Rob was really lovely, and worth every penny!! I would hugely recommend Rob and the Leeds Dog School.Megan Howard 23 Sep 2018
We met Rob today with our 10 month Lab Retriever. She is so lovely but she does exactly what she wants. Not what we want. She rules our life. Within 15 minutes of Rob handling her on a leash we saw a different dog. She soon understood what he expected of her. He gave good, easy to follow advice. Very highly recommended. Thanks Rob.Julie Brook 16 Sep 2018
We met Rob today with our very difficult rescue Saluki. Rob was positive and reassuring and we saw an immediate improvement with Casper. We know there is work to continue with but we are confident that we have made that elusive, important first step. Would wholeheartedly recommend Robs' services to anyone struggling with an aggressive dog.James Parry 04 Sep 2018
Can highly recommend Rob, before he came into the house he could hear the commotion and said I’ll sort that today, and he did half an hour later we had two calm dogs and no aggression or dominance. Before Rob visited I felt like I was being held hostage by the smallest cairn terrier, now I can see a way forward and taking control. Honestly give Leeds dog school a go absolutely marvellousSamantha Land 27 Aug 2018
Rob came today for our shepherd Lola had her sorted in 15 minutes would definitely recommend. Instant results with her😀😀Lesley Wright 20 Aug 2018
Spent what seemed like the blink of an eye with Rob this afternoon and in that short time our leash reactive Border Terrier went from devil to angel. Tough love but effective. Now just need to embed the techniques Rob has shown us to have not only a loving dog but an obedient one!Ken Hinds 18 Aug 2018
Absolutely amazed - it only took 15 minutes to sort my dog out. My dog was nipping and definitely trying to be top dog in the household but Rob is very calm and in control and very quickly sorts things out. Don't hesitate to give him a try I'm sure you too will be so pleased with the results.Ernst Hargrave 13 Jul 2018
Our dog has been barking at anything she seen or heard for about 6 years, after a 10-15 min session our jack chi has completely changed. We are so grateful, such a great service. Definitely recommend it to everyone!!! We can now happily take our dog for a walk without any hassle. Thank you!Sahand Galal 27 Jun 2018
