Obedience is vital in your dog.Having an obedient dog makes ownership of your pet an absolute pleasure! At Leeds Dog School we will train your dog 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.

Below are the main areas of obedience but of course we tailor our training to your requirements as we do not believe that “one size fits all ” when it comes to training. 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.

A well-trained dog is safer to have around family and friends, and is at a lower risk than an uncontrollable dog. A dog must come back when it’s called in the face of dangerous situations such as near a busy road.

THE OBEDIENCE TRAINING

  • Heel Work –walk to heel on the lead
  • Heel Work – walk to heel off lead 
  • Recall - return when called
  • Down – “down” on command
  • Sit – dog will sit at the side when you stop

OWNER TRAINING

Owner training and participation in obedience training is just as important as training the dog. The owner must be aware of the commands and learn to control the dog.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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.

What areas of Yorkshire do you cover

We train throughout Yorkshire. We come to your home wherever you live in Yorkshire and work with you and your dog or puppy on a 1-2-1 basis.

What breeds do you train

We train all breeds of dog from "designer" dogs such as the cockapoo or labradoodle through to working dogs such as spaniels and terriers. We also specialise in larger dogs such as German Shepherds, Rottweilers, Dobermans, all Mastiffs.

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!

    Ollie was brilliant he came and helped us with our 7 month old English Bull Terrier Edward who was pulling on the lead and pulling to other dogs and jumping up. He took us out with Edward and showed us how to stop the pulling and correct his behaviour. He was extremely helpful with the information he told us including what collar was best to use and train him. Definitely recommend 🙂

    We contacted Leeds Dog School as our 2yr old male German Shepherd was pulling on the lead and very very reactive to other dogs. We hadn't had the dog too long so no idea on his past history. Steve stayed for over 3 hrs on his first visit and managed to get my dog walking along side his own which was amazing. However, my dog reverted back to his old ways despite using the correct technique so Steve came back a few week later.. We didn't make any further progress on that occasion so Steve suggested we go to see Rob for further help. We visited Rob who helped us sort out the situation on the day. However my dog is still reactive to other dogs and we are continuing to work on this. I have found Steve and Rob to be very helpful and genuinely want us to succeed to sort our issues out. They have both offered to assist further if we need it which I find reassuring. To me this is over and beyond what a lot of trainers would do. Thanks Guys.

    Rob & Ollie are fantastic. We have a Patterdale Terrier who is 13 months and from 8 weeks old we have been training our dog. At 8 months our dog started doing what he wanted, jumping up at and nipping people, the trainer we were using was no help at all, with the methods he was using. At 11 months my wife wanted rid of the dog until we met Rob and Ollie. Ollie came to the house for an hour and our dog was a different animal, 4 weeks later our daughter wanted some additional guidance. So we had a second visit to refine what we were doing. Rob did the training this time and within less than a minute had our dog doing what he wanted. Rob then spent time with us to go through what we were doing wrong. He showed us how to stop our dog from barking at other dog and houses when out and to walk to heel without pulling. Unlike other trainers they do not turn up in a brand new vehicle with all the fancy trimmings, what they do is show you how to train your dog to do what you want it to do. They don't rip you off and will tell you if you are wasting your money, they don't want you to sign up to weeks and weeks of training or into a training pack. What they did for us in 2 hours was unbelievable, all you have to do is listen to what they tell you and be consistent with your dog, Thanks Rob and Ollie

    Ollie came round and showed us a tremendous number of techniques to improve our dobermann pup's behaviour including walking to heel, recall, correcting bad behaviour such as jumping up and picking up objects. Picked up a lot of valuable insight and practical advice and our dog enjoyed learning an impressive amount of knowledge in such a short space of time. Definitely recommended and we will be working with these guys again in the future.

    I cannot express how fantastic Rob is! I will recommend them to everyone who has a dog, words cannot describe what a difference their advice has made to our lives and our lovely pups.

    You will not regret booking in with them, they are incredible value for money and more effective than any classes or online lessons I've tried.

    STEVE came to visit last Saturday in an attempt to stop my very friendly, 2 1/2 year old golden retriever launching himself at people and other dogs. He had lots of patience showing us how to manage him and went with us on a training walk. I have a changed dog! I now feel much more confident taking him out and walking past people as he doesn't jump up! I am really pleased with the progress we have made in a week. Steve was fantastic and a really nice guy with so much patience. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Thank you! Kath & Liberty

    We are currently in the middle of training sessions with Rob and our rescue Mallinois, Helo (Helius). My husband and I cant believe how quickly Rob was able to have Helo walk to heel - like within a few minutes he was walking to heel and not dragging my husband down the road. Really nice, enthusiastic guy who obviously knows what he is talking about. I feel far more confident about being able to manage Helo now, given his issues as a rescue Mali. Rob has provided us with great videos which help us during the week as we practice what we learned at a session. We are finding Rob is able to deal with the issue we had - and more. We are all looking forward to next week, and Helo had so much fun and mental stimulation today, he is totally relaxed now as you can see 😀 Really glad we chose this trainer, and hope to continue working with long term. Thanks Rob!!

    One session with Rob completely changed our dog. He went from being an anxious, reactive GSD to being obedient and calm. Rob is so passionate about what he does and it really shows in the quality of his work and his extensive knowledge of both dog training and dog breeds. Whenever I have a query, Rob is so happy to help and provides lots of helpful resources to use to support our training. Already have and will continue to recommend to everyone. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!

    Rob was amazing, if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes I would never have believed it. My 1 year old Vizsla Murphy is now walking beautifully with me, I'm no longer being dragged on a walk like a rag doll!! His understanding and love for dogs is enormous and I am really looking forward to working on Murphy's recall. Many thanks Rob see you soon

    Today I took my 2 bandogges puppies over to Rob and Ollie to address some behavioural issues they were having and wanted some confidence in handling them due to their size. Both rob and ollie made me feel very relaxed and at ease straight away and showed me some basic handling techniques to stop pulling and give me more overall control. There expertise and knowledge in this area is fantastic and they have a real passion for what they are doing and the dogs best interest in place all the time! I feel alot more confident now and have a training plan for the future so I know exactly what I need to be doing and how to do it. Cannot recommend Leeds Dog School enough for their help in both training and answering any questions I had both for now and in the future. Looking forward to applying it myself and working my dogs and discovering their capability.
    Thank you Rob and Ollie 🙂

    Went to Rob for a lesson with my German shepherd and it was brilliant. Rob, Ollie and Ruth are so lovely and knowledgeable. They gave me some great tips on what I was doing wrong and how to correct. Within MINUTES Rob had everything I was concerned about, corrected. I would 100% recommend. Thank you so much!

    I have a very hyper west highland terrier dog, he was an absolute nightmare to walk,his behaviour would start before leaving the house he would bark and jump at me it would take forever just to get the lead on,once out he would pull on the lead constantly, my arm would be aching from constantly trying to hold him back I actually dreaded taking him out instead of a leisurely stroll it became a battle of wills, which he undoubtedly won, he would bark at other dogs and start lunging towards them taking me with him, I was recommended Leeds dog school by a colleague, the instructor, Ollie, arrived. He didn't say anything he just observed the said behaviour, he then called the dog to heel and sit while he slipped a lead on l was amazed he just sat by his side with the lead on and waited , and off they both set off, the instructor explained everything to me as they walked and then handed it over to me, I followed his instructions and I am not exaggerating when I say how quick it was, I am absolutely amazed at just how quickly and easily my dog has responded, I am now actually looking forward to taking him for walks I honestly cannot recommend this company highly enough. Ollie was very knowledgeable, helpful, friendly, and delight to learn from.
