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

Training your dog in obedience is fun for your dog and fun for you. Wakefield dog training teach all the basic commands such as "sit" and "down" as well as focused heeling and much more.

The video shows just what we can achieve. Of course, it's just as important for the owner to be able to achieve the same results so Rob Dye ensures that you are confident with the commands so that you follow up with the training.

Castleford Dog Training

Training a your puppy should start as soon as possible. Wakefield dog training  gives the right foundations from the start. 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.

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.

DOG FRIENDLY PUBS NEAR CASTLEFORD

Once your dog is fully trained and any bad behaviour corrected it can be pleasure to go to your local pub and sit with your dog without worrying about any problems with other people or other dogs. Many pubs are "dog friendly" CLICK HERE FOR A LIST OF DOG FRIENDLY WAKEFIELD PUBS

PLACES TO WALK YOUR DOG IN YORKSHIRE

Many towns do not allow dogs to walk off the lead.

This understandable but but allowing your dog the freedom to run off the lead is great fun for your dog.

Obviously, being able to recall your dog is very important and this is one area that we focus on in our dog training.

Once this is achieved, luckily, there are some really good places where your dog can be allowed to run free in Yorkshire. CLICK HERE FOR A LIST OF DOG FRIENDLY WALKS

DOG FRIENDLY COTTAGES

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! CLICK HERE FOR DOG FRIENDLY COTTAGES

    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!
