STOPPING BAD BEHAVIOUR FROM DAY ONE!

It’s tempting to put your Rescue dog’s bad behaviour down to its bad experience and tolerate barking, biting, pulling on the lead, and aggression for a time. This is not acceptable and unless these behaviour are not dealt with quickly your life will be a misery. Your dog needs stability and training and a routine provides this

ONE TO ONE BEHAVIOUR TRAINING

 At Leeds Dog School we train your Rescue dog and you! We believe that one to one training with you and your dog at your home is the best way of training and stopping dog bad behaviour. This allows us to concentrate on your specific problems. All this means that you can follow up our training and make sure your dog does not slip back into its old ways.

It's vital to get them on the right track as soon as possible. Dogs learn quickly what behaviour is acceptable but they have to be taught.

We visit your home and we will go for a walk with you and your dog or puppy to ensure that you know exactly how to correct bad behaviour and to reward good behaviour. Ignoring dog bad behaviour is wrong it should always be corrected when behaving badly and only good behaviour should be rewarded.

RUNNING AWAY AND WILL NOT COME BACK

Poor recall is probably the most common dog bad behaviour that we come across. It makes it almost impossible to let your dog or puppy off the lead on a walk. The owner is constantly anxious that it will simply ignore them.  We can teach you a few techniques that solve this and make going for a walk a pleasure.

PULLING ON THE LEAD

Pulling on the lead is uncomfortable for you and the for your dog. Most dogs unless properly trained are likely to pull on the lead and this makes going for a walk an unpleasant experience. Owners have often been advised to buy a harness. We do not recommend them unless you want your dog trained to pull a sledge like a husky! Similarly, choke chains are positively dangerous. We offer a number of methods which solve this permanently and easily.

JUMPING UP AT PEOPLE AT HOME OR ON A WALK

Our objective in dog training is to train our clients to control their dog or puppy. We are training the owner almost as much as the dog or puppy. Until you have the right techniques jumping up will always be a problem. Once your dog realises that you are in charge, this kind of behaviour stops. We will teach you the simple techniques quickly and easily.

Aggression in a dog whether to other dogs or to people is totally unacceptable. We have to teach our clients to be assertive and to know how to correct the dog to prevent aggression happening in the first place. Our training is not theoretical but practical and we give you practical techniques to take control.

LEEDS DOG SCHOOL STOP DOG BAD BEHAVIOUR

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. 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
  • Stop barking at the door

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!

    We have had dogs for over 20 years and never needed to call in a trainer before but the aggression our 4 year old rescue Doberman was showing was getting out of hand. When Rob came, he instantly assessed our dog ( and us ) and gave us a simple but very affective method to correct this behaviour. It worked practically immediately and has continued to work in the days after. Hopefully we won’t need Rob again as he has given us the tools to control our very adorable but feisty dog, but we wouldn’t hesitate to call on him again.thanks Rob ( and Ruth) Vicki, Ian and Stan xxx

    Can’t believe the change in our dog in less than half an hour my dog stopped his constant barking best nights sleep in 5 weeks since we got Ernie. No more stress for us and Ernie he is like a different dog, my partner came home from been away a couple of days and could not believe the difference Ying and Yang. I would recommend Rob to anyone life changing !!!

    I met Rob for the first time today with my 9 month old lab . I was a bit sceptical has ave been through lots of training sessions with various trainers and not much success. Rob was straight talking, no nonsense and extremely knowledgeable. He had my lab walking with him, obedient and showing him respect within minutes, something I had been trying months to do. With his guidance and training (within the session ) I took Jess on a walk later in the day, following his techniques and advice I had the best walk ever! No lunging or pulling ! Exciting to develop on this and then looking forward to booking in another session for recall . Thank you !

    Had one session with our Rottweiler and all our problems were sorted with simple correction, can’t recommend this guy enough! Leaps and bounds above all the other trainers we’ve had. Honest and good at what he does. Any problems I’d definitely get in touch.

    Absolutely Amazing! In just one session with Rob and he got our 15 month old sprocker spaniel to stop jumping up and on sofas and walking amazingly on lead! Taught us great techniques and knew his stuff. Brilliant!

    Rob has done a training session with me and my husky this afternoon and it was amazing. I was expecting to be dissapointed as my husky thinks he rules the roost but Rob had him obeying my commands in less than 10 minutes. I am looking forward to more training for us both. Thank you.

    Rob is very knowledgeable, he corrected my young whippet from constantly jumping up in less than 5 seconds. He has a wealth of experience and explains everything clearly. Thanks Rob

    Fantastic service! Our yappy Chihuahuas behaviour was corrected within five minutes. So simple, effective and it makes perfect sense. We are amazed!! It was clearly explained to us how and why to correct in this way and the results were immediate. Cannot recommend these enough! We are actually looking forward to going for a walk tomorrow!! Thanks guys

    We are so pleased with the training given to our new puppy - we cannot believe the difference. The change in Ralph after one session is amazing and we cannot thank you enough. We would definitely recommend Leeds Dog School without a doubt! Ralph is no longer a little mischievous rascal - thank you!!

    The best hour of our to date! Rob is fantastic, and Vincent our Cockapoo thinks the same. Robs approach is realistic and achievable for us!

    We have a more well behaved dog, after just the one hour.We would recommend working with Rob, absolutely.

    After an initial telephone conversation with a lovely gentleman at Leeds Dog School , Rob came to see our 9 month old Labrador who was jumping up, stealing food, and making it difficult for me to leave the room without him barking or trying to follow me. Rob had an immediate impact . Everything he said would happen actually happened !!

    We have a 9week old golden retriever who was generally being a naughty puppy biting, constant crying in the crate, jumping up .We found Leeds Dog School and given the 5star reviews ,we decided to give them a call. A few days later Rob come round and literally within 10minutes we noticed a change in our puppies behaviour.

    Rob visited me and my 13 month Cocker Spaniel this afternoon and he was brilliant. He helped us set up the foundations of training so we can eventually let him off the lead. I instantly noticed a difference in his behaviour and I now enjoy walking him without him virtually pulling my arm off! I would recommend Rob to anyone, he really is excellent.
