We have trained German Shepherds for many years in obedience and as security dogs. We train German Shepherd dogs and puppies throughout Yorkshire

THE GERMAN SHEPHERD

German Shepherd training is vital.Extremely loyal and intelligent, the German Shepherd is not only a great choice as a family pet, but they are extremely versatile in a working environment too. Because they are so intelligent, German Shepherds need lots of mental stimulation and physical exercise to be truly happy, well-balanced dogs. They also need to be correctly trained and handled with a firm hand so they know who is the boss!

THE GERMAN SHEPHERD OBEDIENCE TRAINING

Obedience is vital for your German Shepherd. Having an obedient dog makes ownership of your pet an absolute pleasure! At Leeds Dog School our German Shepherd training will train your dog to a high level in obedience.We also believe that this should involve the owner at every stage and so our training is one to one with you and your dog. It’s important that your dog obeys your commands and respects you otherwise they can be a nightmare! Owners with an obedient German Shepherd 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.

OBEDIENCE CHECK LIST

  • Heel Work –walk to heel on the lead
  • Heel Work – walk to heel off lead 
  • Recall - return when called
  • Down – “down” on command
  • Sit – dog will sit at the side when you stop
  • Come –come to owner in the “frontal sit” position

STOPPING BAD BEHAVIOUR

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

GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY TRAINING

As well as adult German Shepherd training we also offer puppy training. Puppy Training of your our new German Shepherd puppy should be done as as soon as possible. It’s just fun for them and they love it! We train them from just a few weeks. The video shows a very young puppy 's early training. 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. This why all our training is 1-2-1 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.

PUPPY TRAINING CHECK LIST

  • 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.

    Ruth came to see us to help stop our 8 week old puppy from biting our hands and feet. In just 1 hour she showed us a really helpful correction technique that he is gradually responding very well to. Ruth was happy to talk through any other issues/aspects and gave us great advice and support overall. Many thanks Ruth and Leeds Dog School, I am sure we'll be calling on you for help again in the near future!

    A gentleman called Rob came out to us today to rid our 3 month old German Shepheard of his bad behaviour. Myself and my partner were really struggling with the dog as he was very defiant which was causing a lot of stress in the household. However the method we were shown today has proven to be extremely positive and actually works as our dog has changed in a matter of an hour. We are so happy we chose this company as the results are amazing all we can say is thank you and we will definitely be using them again for on and off lead walking.

    We couldn't recommend Leeds Dog School enough. Straight away when Kyle came over, our 6 month old Weimaraner was instantly obedient. Kyle was excellent on showing us the techniques to train our dog.

    I couldn’t recommend Rob and his team highly enough. Rob came to see us a little while ago to help us with our 5 month old Labrador who was being overly boisterous when meeting people and playing. Within minutes she was drastically better and the results have continued to be great! Rob gave us tips for the future on how to overcome potential issues down the road and they have really helped.

    Just had my second dog training session with rob and just like the first session it went amazing. For 6 months my 3 Doberman’s have been dragging me around the streets and no matter wot advice I’d been given in the past non of it worked 😩 after just 2 minutes with rob my dog was walking in harmony 🤗 I couldn’t believe it finally I can take my dogs for a walk rather than they take me for a spin. Thank you rob you are amazing xxx

    Cannot recommend Leeds Dog School enough. We saw a difference within minutes of Rob arriving. We have been able to use the tips that Rob gave us easily on our own and it is like walking a different dog! We will definitely be using again for help with recall. Thanks Rob!

    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.

    Has to be seen to be believed!! It was incredible to see the change in our puppy after spending literally 10 minutes with Leeds Dog School. He has stopped biting. Couldn't be happier. Definitely money well spent. Thank you.

    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 !!!
