Many owners are find it very stressful when they take their dog or puppy for a walk or when visitors come to their home. The common problems are pulling on the lead, running away when off the lead and just refusing to come back, and lunging at other dogs. In the home the bad behaviour includes jumping up at visitors, barking, and sometimes nipping!

The basic problem is that owner has not got the right tools and techniques to stop this bad behaviour and the dog is taking control.

Leeds Dog training puts the owner in control!

What problem dog behaviour do you deal with

If your dog is, jumping up at people or you, stealing food, destructive, running out of the door,  barking constantly, aggressive to humans or dogs and more … you need home 1-2-1 home training. Two hours is usually enough to cure most problems because we train you to take control and then you don’t need us anymore.

My dog is terrible when I go for a walk can you help

Pulling on the lead , running away and refusing to return, and barking and lunging at other dogs  are the most common problems we deal with. We go for a walk with you and we always choose a busy park and usually stop this in an hour.

What training methods do you use

Unlike some trainers, we only use “treats” in some circumstances particularly with high level obedience training. They are over used and eventually do not work with problem behaviour. Our method is correction and then reward with praise. Enticing or “bribing” a dog is counter-productive and they soon spot how to manipulate the situation. The most important training, however, is the owner training so that you can control your dog.

Do you have puppy classes

The short answer is NO. We simply do not think they work. There are too a many puppies and they just want to play with each other and are totally distracted. The owners cannot possibly get individual attention in an hour with 8 or 10 or more people in a class. We only offer 1-2-1 puppy training in your home because it’s quicker, more effective, and cheaper!

How many sessions do you recommend

Our aim is to cure problems quickly usually in 2 sessions. We believe that offering 5 and 10 sessions is frankly a “rip off”. We train you to take control your dog and if you are prepared to put our training into effect you simply do not need us for this length of time. If you need us again because you’re not sure about something, we’ll pop back free of charge.

A disobedient dog can make your life a misery. Having had ten years experience in dog training, our Leeds Training School trainer  Rob Dye works with you and your dog to ensure your dog is highly obedient. Most importantly, he shows you how to keep it up because training the owner is just as important as training your dog.


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.

Training a your puppy should start as soon as possible. Leeds Dog Training School ensures the right foundations . 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.

Leeds dog training covers all areas of Leeds as well as Guisley, Garforth, Horsforth, Otley, Morley and Pudsey. We come your home in all these areas and also in your local park or where you normally walk your dog. This is where the problems occur and that's the best place to stop them.




Leeds is very lucky in that most of the parks allow dogs off the lead except in certain areas. parks such as Roundhay Park, Meanwood Park, Temple Newsam, and Middleton Park allow your dog to run free. To take advantage, however, it’s very important that your dog is well trained with good recall and not aggressive to other dogs or people. Leeds Dog School train dogs in all these parks so you can be assured tht you will have no problems with bad behaviour. There is a good list of parks at the Leeds List website:



Boarding kennels are a good option when you go on holiday and there are a number of excellent kennels in Leeds. An an alternative which can be much less stressful for your dog is home boarding. This is where your dog stays in a home. There are a number of websites listing home boarding:



Lots of pubs in Leeds are dog friendly as they realise that dogs are part of the family. Many of the pubs listed on Leeds List also serve food so owners now have a great choice. If you have a obedient dog going to the pub with your dog become a pleasure. We often go with clients to their local as part of the training.There is an excellent list of pubs in Leeds List.



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 at the this website:

    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!

    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!
