THE GOLDEN RETRIEVER

The Golden Retriever's temperament makes him a fabulous family pet, and his intelligence makes him a highly capable working dog. They are a large dog so it's vital that the owner takes control and training is very important. Leeds Dog School have many years experience training working dogs.
Once used as a hunting dog in the Scottish Highlands, the Golden Retriever breed as we know it today is the product of Lord Tweedmouth who combined dog breeds such as his original “Yellow Retriever,” the Irish Setter, and the Bloodhound. He was aiming to create a breed perfect for the cold, wet, rugged terrain of Scotland.

GOLDEN RETRIEVER OBEDIENCE TRAINING

At Leeds Dog School we will train your Golden Retriever 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 we work with you until you are confident in controlling your dog.

Training a Golden Retriever is  great fun as they are so eager to learn and very intelligent.

Owners with obedient Golden Retrievers 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.

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

GOLDEN RETRIEVER PUPPY TRAINING

puppy

Training your new puppy should be started as soon as possible from 8 weeks. You’ll be amazed just how quickly they learn and at a very early age and it’s just fun for them and they love it!

Leeds Dog Training School train your puppy on a 1-2-1 visit to your home in Yorkshire rather than in classes as we believe this is much more effective.

  • 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
  • Destructive Behaviour - we will show you how to stop destructive behaviour

STOPPING BAD BEHAVIOUR BY YOUR GOLDEN RETRIEVER

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. 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

    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!!

    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 biting, constant crying in the crate, jumping up .We found Leeds Dog School and given the 5star reviews ,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.

    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.
