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!

A disobedient dog makes owning a dog a misery. Having had ten years experience in working dog training, our Wetherby Dog Training School trainer  Rob Dye works with you and your dog’s obedience. But importantly, he shows you how to keep it up because owner training is a vital part of the session.

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.

We can stop:

  • Aggression
  • Poor recall
  • Pulling on the lead
  • Jumping up
  • Constant Barking
  • Biting and Puppy “mouthing”

 

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 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.

    Very knowledgeable, highly recommend Rob! Sorted my 1 year old Frenchie out within the first 10/15 minutes of being with him, felt like i had a completely new dog. Looking forward to the next session!!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 marvellous

    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!

    Met Rob today with my 16 month old Rottweiler Hector who is leash reactive to dogs and some people! Rob showed my a technique to nip this behaviour straight away. Would highly recommend him , definitely going to have more sessions with him with Hector! 👍🏻😀

    After 7 month of continuous pulling we have seen great results in our vizslas on lead walking. Within the first session she now walks to heel and stops exactly when she should. Fantastic training and a great service.

    Rob did a fantastic job with our two German shepherds, Mason and Millie, today!! Very patient and gave us some good techniques to use. Booked them in for another session, very happy with the results so far.

    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.

    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!
