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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Would highly recommend to anyone! Rob came today and worked his magic on my dog. He would bark at anything and everything, he didn't like men or other dogs and within the session rob stopped the behavior and its like I have a completely different dog! I really can't believe the difference.Lauren Ainsworth 30 Jul 2020
I honestly can’t thank Steve enough for his help today, he was so professional and friendly and within minutes knew where we were going wrong. He offered so much advice and resources as well working with us to demonstrate exactly how to correct our dog. He even brought along his own dog to assist in training so a special thank you to doggy Dax for being so patient with our Ted. In just a couple of hours we went from a dog petrified of people & dogs, who would bark and lunge at them, to a much calmer and more confident dog who could sit next to a new dog who was much bigger than him. Within three attempts he had practically perfected not barking at door knocking. We still have some work and practice to go but Steve gave us all the tools wegeorgia vickers 25 Jul 2020
need to do this as well his constant support should we need it. Thank you Steve you’ve been brilliant.
We have a puppy Golden Doodle and we are brand new to owning a dog. We contacted Leeds Dog School because our puppy was biting a lot - biting us and furniture. She is adorable but this was getting in the way of us building a good relationship with her. We first read various ways of stopping this behaviour on-line but there is such a lot of conflicting advice that we thought having a personal trainer come to the house and help us with our puppy on a one to one basis was the way forward. I read all the reviews on line and they sounded great but I was sceptical that a single session would resolve the problem. How wrong I was. Ruth came to our house and she was absolutely fabulous. She took time to explain how dogs' minds work and therefore what they do and don't respond to. She then taught us a very effective correction technique which worked immediately and has continued to work with success ever since. We were so impressed with Ruth - her professionalism, her knowledge, her love of dogs, her experience and her lovely easy manner and attitude - that we asked her to come back once our puppy could start walking outside of the house. She came back this week and taught us how to help our puppy walk securely and properly outdoors and she even helped us with some problems we have had in getting our puppy in the car. What Ruth has done is actually give us the confidence that we are in control, not the otherway around, and that we can love our dog to bits while also making sure she behaves properly. Our experience of this company - from the lovely gentleman who spoke to me initially on the telephone, to Ruth who is outstanding and to the after service in videos and messages is that it is a first rate company and we would highly recommend it to anyone.Sarah sheldon 25 Jul 2020
Rob is a remarkable trainer! We had had been seriously struggling with our 6 month old cane corso puppy. An hour with Rob has helped turn her behaviour around. We are now able to walk her without her lashing out at other dogs. He shown us how to train her to be unafraid of other dogs and to stop the negative behaviours. I highly recommend booking a session with Rob, he's a great guy and really knows what he's doing!!Gabrielle Derrick 25 Jul 2020
rob really helped teach me and my mum how to keep our two dogs calm around each other when they go for a visit. It got to the point where we didn’t allow them to be around each other as they didn’t listen to us at all but after 10 mins with rob they stayed calm and laid in their beds and have since been doing it on every visit! Super happy and can’t believe how quick the problem was solved 🙂kerrie Brown 18 Jul 2020
Rob came today to help to assist me with my lovely German Shepherd dogs .He has already made an improvement in the balance of the pack. Rob looked at the dogs as a whole not just individually. Rob was clear,deciciive and calm.Rob has helped me to be a better leader ,which in turn helps all three of my dogs. Rob has the best interests of all the dogs at heart . Rob took on board my own views and has now given me some tools to improve the quality of time spent in my dogs company.I have already seen an improvement in the dogs behaviour. Well done and Thank you .BrendaBrenda Weir 14 Jul 2020

Steve came out to our home yesterday for a 1-1 with our 7 month old Doberman Kobe.
We were starting to loose hope that we would never be able to walk him on a loose lead out on a walk or how to correct behaviour issues within our home. However Steve came and spent some time with us and we were amazed with how well Kobe has reacted to the training. Today I have been able to confidently walk him on a loose lead with absolutely no pulling at all.
We now how control and we feel so much more relaxed in our home, Kobe is a much happier calmer dog too in just one session!
Steve was very friendly and made us feel extremely comfortable we cannot recommend him enough!
He is amazing!! Ask for Steve’s help!!

Rob is super professional and extremely knowledgeable his passion for what he does is great to see. Within minutes he had george like putty in his hand. We got Rob to deal with my mums dog who’s super sweet but a powerful dog. I spoke to my mum this morning and she passed on the following after our session with Rob.Matthew Marsh 06 Jul 2020
We’ve been on our walk just had the slip collar on and George was lovely to walk. It stopped him from nosying all the rubbish on the floor and also being too interested in cats.
We came across the usual pack of 3 dogs and I made him sit at the other side of the road and he ate his ham and cheese.
We also saw a spaniel which he hasn’t seen before. Again it was over the road but he showed more interest in it until I did the aha, sit and treats.
The hardest thing to remember is to pull up and not back. That foxes me I get all muddled, but we’ll get there I’m sure.
Also George is so interested in ham he forgets to wee and poo 😂😂
Thank you for your help x
When my daughter brought her puppy Bulldog over to my house it was complete bedlam with my dog & hers. They were manic & completely uncontrollable in their excitement. Within 5 minutes of Rob showing us what to do we saw a difference. Within 15 minutes they were calm & laid down. He was here for 1.5 hours & didn’t charge us anymore for staying longer. We didn’t get a chance to deal with my dogs unpredictable aggression so he is arranging for me to meet his dogs to deal with that too, at no extra cost. My dog can be fearful of men, which he picked up on immediately & he let me lead with my dog so as not to scare her. I really respected that because the last thing I wanted was for my dog to be scared. Would recommend highlypaula brown 05 Jul 2020
Amazed!! Less than an hour with Ollie and not only did he have my 6month XL bully under control; I had her heeling and all round obedient !! 😁😁 I’m oozing confidence and so excited and happy for the future with my beautiful pup 🐶 thank you soooo much; 1010% recommended! These guys know their stuff 👌👏🏼😊Victoria Bryan 01 Jul 2020
Rob came today to work with me and Luna. We were having problems with Luna jumping up at people and trying to get to other people and dogs on walks, not aggressively but wanting to play.Dave Clarke 30 Jun 2020
Rob showed me some great correct & reward techniques and Luna was a much calmer dog when he left.
Rob has given me the confidence to believe I can carry on with training, knowing he is there if I need him.
