We called Leeds Dog School for help with our 9 month old Boston Staffie cross we were struggling to walk him as he pulled constantly on the lead, we also needed help with him jumping all over us when we came home or when we were sat on the sofa trying to watch the TV. Ruth came to visit us and taught us how to deal with Reggie jumping up at everyone and within minutes it was clear to see that this was working. Ruth also came with us for a walk and taught us how to stop Reggie pulling like a train I am so pleased as I can now walk Reggie without being pulled all over. I would highly recommend Leeds Dog School if you are struggling with your pooch
Ruth is amazing, she has given us the best advice on walking our two rescue terridoodles aged 11 months. I used to cross over the road and avoid other people and dogs but now I am more confident and proud to go exploring with them. We had so much advice from other dog owners but none of it worked for us. Within the session with Ruth we had learned so much and was able to practice and get it right! I'm so pleased to have met Ruth and to be giving my dogs a second chance in a forever home.
Patch, our newly adopted rescue springador, did not take to my husband John at all, barking and growling as soon as he appeared and then running away into another room. Rob's techniques gave an immediate and sustained improvement and the relationship is now good. Time for 'walkies' training next and looking forward to Rob's input again.
We rescued our dog in May and he became very aggressive within a few weeks, he's bitten us a number of times, we had training with a previous trainer and didn't seem to work, Rob came around and within half an hour had shown our dog he was boss and taught us how to become the boss! We don't need any other sessions but we are going to book some others to progress further!
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 today and are enormously relieved and impressed. Would wholeheartedly recommend Robs' services to anyone struggling with an aggressive dog.
Just had our session with Rob helping us with our rescue Staffy 'Maisy'. Maisy would pull on the lead and lunge at other dogs. Rob has shown us a number of techniques that has completely changed her behavior in almost minutes.Rob has given us all the tools we need moving forward and will call on Leeds Dog School again if needed!

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
YOU CANNOT STOP BAD BEHAVIOUR WITH A TREAT-IT DOES NOT WORK!
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.

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!

Ruth came round today to help with my two rescue dogs that wouldn’t stop barking when they saw other dogs, they also had a tendency to pull on the lead. Ruth spent an hour with us and by the end it was like we had two completely different dogs, she controlled the barking and no more pulling on the lead! Anyone looking for a dog trainer I highly recommend these guys they are amazing! Thanks again 🙂Natalie Stewart 20 Jan 2020
Ruth came out to our home tonight to help with some basic obedience training for our 11 week old minature schnauzer. As a result of the 1 hour Ruth spent with us, we are more confident dog parents. We now have tools to manage our pups mischief and will be able to solidify his crate training. Ruth explained everything in a really easy to understand way, we are really happy and will certainly call on the dog school again if we need behavioural support further down the line.Emma Slater 01 Jan 2020
Rob came over today to help us out with our 7 month old Border Collie who barked non- stop whenever someone came to our house. Within 30 minutes, he'd shown us the simple techniques to put us back into control. Rob is a credit to dog trainers - he has so much passion for his job, which must not even feel like work to him as he can just wants to pass on his knowledge. Thanks so muchAlan Simpkins 31 Dec 2019
Highly recommend Leeds School of Dogs! Had Rob visit our home today after struggling to train our year old bull dog and struggling with aggression we saw huge results within the hour! Rob was very informative making sure we could carry out the training once he had left, leaving us lots of resources to carry on our own training. Worth every penny would recommend to anyone!Catherine Taylor 21 Dec 2019
We had Ruth out today to visit with our Rottie pup and in particular his biting. She was fantastic and definitely money well spent. Can’t believe the change in a day. There are so many conflicting viewpoints available online its hard to workout the best way to do things, having Ruth and Leeds dog school in took this away and give us a clear positive path to follow.James wilson 04 Dec 2019
Would recommend to all new owners!
Highly recommend Leeds dog school! Ruth came out a couple weeks ago to help us with our Rottweiler puppy and she was amazing!! It has helped us so much to make sure we are bringing him up the right way. Ruth and Rob called in last night as a call back to make sure we felt comfortable and doing everything right! Very easy to deal with and always there if we need help!! Really couldn’t recommend them enough 🙂Becky McDonald 04 Dec 2019
We had a very productive first session with Rob today, he obviously loves his dogs and made great progress with Flo, our very anxious 3 year old doberlady. We are looking forward to continuing to implement Rob’s techniques, which he explained and persevered with us until we understood what we need to do and why. Looking forward to having a calm confident gorgeous girl. The back-up video links and service is great.Carole Bambrough-Oates 20 Nov 2019
Just finished my first session with Rob who was extremely knowledgable and passionate. Within 15 minutes he showed me how I can stop my German Shepherd barking and lunging at the door when someone knocks. Lots of practical, sensible strategies to use with Bella before we meet again next week. Rob made everything logical and clear, has good breed knowledge and left me with links to recommended videos on a range of training techniques and scenarios. Would highly recommend Rob and Leeds Dog School to anyone who is looking for balanced, effective training methods to use with their dog.Keith Bothamley 19 Nov 2019
Ruth came to our house today to help us with our 6 month old jack Russell cross, Albert. He had been bullying the cat, ignoring his name when called, getting distracted by other dogs whilst out on his walks, and generally trying to rule the roost. Ruth demonstrated some amazing techniques and Albert responded really well after just one visit. I can not recommend Leeds Dog School, and Ruth, enough. Absolutely fantastic.Amanda Blamires 14 Nov 2019
