THE LABRADOR

Labradors  really love to learn. Take advantage on their inbuilt trainability to get them trained as soon as possible. As they are large dogs they can and do pull on the lead and this is easy to stop by Leeds Dog School. Labs learn very qickly so the sooner you start the better!

Affectionately known as Labs, Labrador Retrievers hail from 16th century Newfoundland, now part of the Newfoundland and Labrador provinces of Canada, where they were originally used as fishing dogs. They helped fishermen by pulling in nets and chasing and “retrieving” fish that escaped from fishing lines. Over the years, they were crossed with Setters, Spaniels, and other retrievers, and they gradually became efficient “retrievers” of all sorts of game, from birds to rabbits.

LABRADOR OBEDIENCE TRAINING

Having an obedient Labrador makes ownership an absolute pleasure! At Leeds Dog School we will train your Lab 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 Labrador is great fun as they are so eager to learn from the puppy stage.

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.

  • 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.

LABRADOR PUPPY TRAINING

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 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 LABRADOR

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. Labradors in particular should not be trained exclusively with treats. Praise works just as well.

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

    Amazing dog trainer! Saw a massive difference in my dogs behaviour within minutes of him being there. All she needed was 1 session! Where as other trainers said at least 5! Highly recommend for sure.

    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.

    Rob stopped my Doberman' puppy's bad behavior within minutes and showed me a technique to use. Would definitely recommend The Leeds Dog School and am looking forward to future training sessions with Rob and his team so we can enjoy having a well behaved dog.

    Called Rob to help us train our Labrador puppy, whot will not do what we ask her i.e. pulls on lead, jumps up and mouths people and will not come back when called if people or dogs are around. Rob had the problems sorted within minutes and we now have a dog that is a pleasure to take for a walk. Don't waste your money going to puppy classes that are a complete waste of time, just ring Rob for a 1-2-1 lesson. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

    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.

    Firstly Rob is a very down to earth guy with a vast knowledge in working with dogs. He gave me the tools in order to correct my dogs; a lab cross who was at times showing signs of aggression and a staffy who then wanted to protect the lab when it all kicked off. I can see a huge improvement already and with the tools rob gave me ,we managed to keep this evenings walk under control. Even to call the lab back mid flight chasing a squirrel . Great guy great service

    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.

    Rob was able to quickly demonstrate the techniques we had been lacking to get both our spaniel and wire haired pointer to walk to heel. A very simple yet effective correction that has solved 3 years of problem behaviour on the lead.

    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!

    He helped me with my 2yr old boxer girl who didn't have the best recall and she was easily destracted when out in open space. He got it sorted so I highly recommend and worthy of the 5 stars

    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.
