Ilkley Dog Training covers Ilkley and surrounding towns with our dog training and puppy training. We train 1-2-1 at your home with you and your dog
Our Ilkley dog training school believe that dog training and puppy training should be at your home. We can concentrate on your dog or puppy and help with any problems with obedience. We can go for a walk with you and your dog and deal with any difficulties you may have.
Training at Home is quicker and more effective than classes!
Dogs and puppies are not naturally badly behaved as they don’t know the difference between “good” behaviour and “bad” behaviour. They simply have not been trained to know what they have to do and with proper training a “bad” dog becomes a “good” dog very quickly as dogs just want to please their owner.
Ilkley dog training specialise in all kinds of problem behaviour and using correction and reward they are able to stop problem behaviour.
As our sessions are 1-2-1 these problems can be quickly solved on our home visit
Training a your puppy should start as soon as possible from 8 to 10 weeks. Puppies learn very quickly and they soon fit in with the family. Ilkley Dog Training school gives the right foundations for your puppy's obedience. We do not do classes as frankly, we feel that one to one with your new dog is much more effective and quicker. Your puppy will not be distracted by other puppies and we are able to work with you exclusively so that you can follow up the training.
ILKLEY DOG TRAINING AREA
We visit your home in Ilkley or meet in a local park where you normally take your dog or puppy for a walk. This is the best environment to train your dog and means we can see at first hand any problems you may be having. Your dog will not be distracted as may happen in dog classes so is more likely to concentrate.
DOG WALKS IN YORKSHIRE
Many towns do not allow dogs to walk off the lead.
This understandable but but allowing your dog the freedom to run off the lead is great fun for your dog. The advice on Ilkley Moor from the council states: “If you take a dog onto the moor, please keep it under effective control at all times and on a lead when there is livestock around and during the ground-nesting bird breeding season (March to July).”
Our training concentrates on being able to recall your dog so you can enjoy letting your dog run free where this is allowed .
In addition, there are some great places where your dog can be allowed to run free in Yorkshire. Take a look at https://dogwalksyorkshire.com/
DOG FRIENDLY COTTAGES
Rather than put your dog in kennels, why not take your dog with you? There are a huge number of holiday cottages that are dog and pet friendly. If your dog is well trained you can have a relaxing break with your dog and save the cost of kennels! There is a complete list of dog friendly cottages here:
ILKLEY DOG FRIENDLY PUBS & CAFES
Having a trained dog or puppy makes life so much easier. Many pubs and restaurants realise that dogs are part of the family and now welcome them. If your dog is not trained, however, visiting a pub could be out of the question. There are a number of pubs in the Ilkley area that welcome dogs and you can find a complete list here at Doggie Pubs
Rob came round with relatively short notice. We have just introduced a new 9 week old puppy into the house, who just wanted to be all over our older dog. After a short period of time, Rob taught us some new techniques for helping to set some new rules for the puppy and the difference has already been massive. We will be calling on Rob again, when we are able to take the dog out in public.Thanks again, RossRoss Nadin 11 Dec 2018
Just had our first session, so impressed with how it has gone! The hour started with our 6 month old GSD ripping a hole in Rob's jumper and ended with a calm puppy. Just successfully mopped the living room floor with a spectator rather than "helper". Looking forward to the next session. Thanks so much!Freya Shaw 20 Nov 2018
I contacted Leeds Dog School for help in controlling our Labrador's incessant and aggressive barking at anyone who comes to the house. It had reached the point where my own mother has stopped visiting because of the din my dog makes. Rob came out and showed us a very simple technique which worked immediately and is easy for the whole family to implement and commit to. I would recommend Leeds Dog School for any of your dog's issues that need putting right.Leach Ann-Marie 19 Nov 2018
Had our first session today with Rob. It's not rocket science what you learn, it's sensible and practice lessons in dog behaviour. We love our 2 year old black Labrador, but he runs rings around us, and we are too soft. Not anymore, Rob has show us how to gain control and correct Finley. So we have less stress with our dog. Looking forward to the next session.Tracey Oliver 30 Oct 2018
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 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
