Dog bad behaviour like human behaviour is a very complex subject but bad behaviour in a dog can make an owner’s life a misery. Solving problems with bad behaviour and aggression is our speciality at Leeds Dog School.
Many of the problems are very common and with work with your dog and just as importantly, with you, they can be solved.
LEEDS DOG SCHOOL STOPPING BAD BEHAVIOUR
Many owners have a mistaken belief that dogs should somehow know “naturally” how to behave well. The truth is that “behaving well” is a human concept: dogs can’t be expected to know the difference between “good” and “bad dog behaviour”. They need to be trained to behave in a way that their owners want them to behave. Simply saying "bad dog" is pointless as the dog has no idea what you mean.
At Leeds Dog School we train your 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.
This training is probably more important for your new puppy as it’s vital to get them on the right track as soon as possible.Puppies 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.

THE DANGEROUS DOGS ACT
Many dog owners are unaware that the Dangerous Dog Act concerns their dog as most people think it only refers to banned breeds such as Pit Bull type. This is simply not true as the law covers all breeds.
Section 3 makes it a CRIMINAL OFFENCE for any dog of any breed from Chihuahua to Great Dane to be dangerously out of control in a public place and the offence is committed both whoever was in charge of the dog and also the owner even if the owner was not there at the time.

Leeds Dog Training School train your puppy on a 1-2-1 visit to your home in Yorkshire rather than in classes as we believe this is much more effective.
DOG BOOTCAMP - RESIDENTIAL TRAINING
Residential training for your dog takes place in a 5 Star Licenced Kennel where your dog will receive the very best care and attention.
Residential training is in blocks of a week at a time and is totally flexible and clients can book a single week or more according to their requirements.
Daily intensive training sessions will ensure that your dog’s obedience will improve with a tailored programme to your exact needs and resolve any particular problems you may be having
Owner training is a vital part of the process and working with the owner is a major part of the training. We work extensively with the owner at the kennels to make sure that they understand the commands and can take control of their dog following the training.
AREAS COVERED FOR TRAINING YOUR DOG
Thanks to Isaac Ollie and Rob .... awesome team. Real improvements with my dogs. Guys are helpful and supportive even after residential ended... really like these guys and seem honest knowledgeable and very very nice bunch, down to earth and good teachers ... working towards high obedience training for my gsd dogs. Thanks for being supportive... and teaching me how to carry on the good work. Definitely recommend and the kennel people at Laburnum Kennels they were super too (had never kennelled my dogs before). Not easy to hand your dogs over to strangers but these guys/Kennels made it feel easy, like a home from home. THANKS FOR BEING SO DECENT AND FRIENDLY ❤️❤️❤️ Would recommend and use again 😋😋Alison Noscoe 12 Apr 2021
Impressed!Danny Speight 28 Mar 2021
I contacted Leeds dog school for help with some basic obedience issues that we were having with our Dobermann puppy.
Ollie arrived promptly and was able to immediately identify the areas we needed to work on.
He was able to demonstrate and explain a simple system to communicate with our dog more effectively and did so in a clear, concise no frills way.
In the 24hrs that have followed we’ve seen a huge improvement in our dogs compliance and in our consistency.
We’ll definitely be returning customers.
Our 6yr old Jack Russell Cross, had started to display aggressive tendencies on the lead to passers by and some others dogs but was fine off the lead. We had started to get really stressed about taking him for walks as living semi-urban we often have to get passed lots of people to get to open spaces.Zoe Towers 22 Feb 2021
Immediately Ollie showed us how to get Oscar back under control and us back in charge and take the emotion out of the walk. We now have to practise but I just feel so relieved that we can now walk Oscar stress free again after just one session. Ollie had also sent us lots of You Tube videos to study and is there for any future questions.
Fantastic results with my Dobermann pup 'Judah' being trained with Rob and Issac for the last four weeks. I am astonished at how much has been achieved in such a short period of time. This was Issac's first major project and all credit to Robs training technique what an amazing job you have done! Thank you all, Jack, Ollie, Rob and Issac for producing an amazing pup. See you soon for round 2. All the best, Jeff Evans.Jeff evans 14 Feb 2021
Ollie came to us this week to help us with a very over playful Boxer puppy ! Our dog Max took US for a walk rather than the other way around 😂 Ollie showed us the right techniques and helped us to understand what we were doing wrong, after just one session Max is like a totally different dog! We can not thank Ollie enough for what he has done in such a short time THANKS AGAIN DANIELLE AND BEN (and of course Max )charlotte thomas 13 Feb 2021
We would highly recommend Leeds Dog School! Our trainer Ollie was fantastic with our pup Otis and we saw an instant change in his ability to walk to heel on a loose lead and being able to walk past another dog without reaction! It’s great they come to see you in your home and go on a walk with you so they understand the issues you may be facing. Overall a fantastic experience and we feel so reassured and confident with the advice we have been given and we know if we have any questions we can contact Ollie to support us further 🙂Robert Gidman 05 Feb 2021
I had one lesson with Ollie yesterday to address our bull terrier’s pulling on the lead. Her reaction was like a miracle. I have been out on walk with her today, practiced the technique I’ve been told to do and she’s like a new dog. I have not returned home drowned in sweat and absolutely tired after first time ever. It’s amazing what seeing someone else controlling your dog can do to your way of thinking and confidence with controlling your dog. Thank you.Marika Calvert 05 Feb 2021
Ollie was great with my 16 week rottweiler. From the moment he came in to when he left was very informative & confident which is always reassuring. He’s kept in contact and provided me with much more content and information regarding the subjects we spoke about. Highly recommendConor Good 02 Dec 2020
Oliver was brilliant in helping us with our new dog who is a professional at escaping from the lead and refusing to go for walks. Oliver has helped give our confidence back and now Jake is walking to heal! We are amazed! Thank you Oliver we can now enjoy walks once again! NicolaNicola Lunn 24 Nov 2020
My Jack Russell Terrier Bubbles was pulling on her walks and aggressive to other dogs after one session she walks nicely and during the session was able walk nicely past another dog. Ollie gave me some great tips and on our next walk I could already see the improvements. I would absolutely recommend the Leeds Dog School for any training requirements.Karlene Arewa 27 Oct 2020
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 🙂Victoria Ferguson 18 Oct 2020
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.MsFive0 14 Oct 2020
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 OllieMatthew Hird 12 Oct 2020
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.Joseph Egglestone 09 Oct 2020
