It’s generaly agreed that Pomeranians are difficult to train. They tend to be dominant and don’t like someone telling them what to do. They have a stubborn streak and they need firm handling. They can also be aggressive and barking can be a problem. Leeds Dog School training will correct this and help the owner to control their Pom.


Obedience is vital for your Pomeranian. 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.

Owners with obedient pets get more satisfaction and have a stronger bond with their pet. As Poms are highly energetic dogs owner training is vital so that the owner can enjoy having such an energetic pet.

A well-trained Pom is safer to have around family,children, friends, and other dogs.

  • Heel Work –  walk to heel on the lead
  • Heel Work – walk to heel off the lead
  • Down – “down” on command
  • Sit – dog will sit when you stop walking
  • Come –  come to you in the “frontal sit” 



Puppy Training of your new puppy should be done as as soon as possible. You’ll be amazed just how quickly they learn and at a very early age.It’s just fun for them and they love it! We train all breeds from just a few weeks. They are taught obedience just the same as an adult dog. Then we train you so that you can keep up with it.

We do not offer classes. All our training is 1-2-1 with you and your puppy at your home and where you would normally go on a walk. We are convinced that this is a much more effective way of training your puppy. We can deal with your specific problems with your puppy and your specific training requirements. We help you to train your puppy. In our opinion, this cannot be achieved in a classroom with lots of other puppies who are more interested in playing with each other than listening or learning.

  • Toilet Training - we will show you the easiest way to toilet train your puppy
  • Crate Training - we will show you how to crate train your puppy
  • Biting - we will show you how to stop "mouthing" or biting
  • We stop Puppy Aggression
  • We stop barking
  • We stop jumping up
  • We stop jumping on furniture


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 particularly with a Pom. 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. Our Pomeranian 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 any problems you may have.

  • 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

    What a difference a Dave made. We had been having difficulty with our young Springer, Sherpa, pulling hard and not walking to heel on lead. Not any more! Dave listened to our “problem”, talked us through why it was us (not Sherpa) and explained what was needed. After a very short time we were walking Sherpa on lead to heel. What a pleasure! In the garden we were walking him to heel off lead. A real feeling of progress. It’s now down to us. Thank you, Dave.

    From the moment Ruth arrived I felt comfortable, she is just lovely. Ruth came to advise me on our 5 month old Rottweiler and she was brilliant. She made sure I understood each part of the training before leaving (30 minutes later than she should have at no extra cost) and has definitely restored my confidence. Ruth has sent me messages on the training we did so if I need to refer back to it I have it to hand. She also sent me links on what collar and lead to buy. I would definitely recommend using Leeds Dog School without hesitation

    Recently got a German shepherd 4 years old and poorly raised didn’t stop barking at any and every dog and sometimes people as soon as we got to the park with Leeds dog school there was an immediate change we could take her attention away from the other dogs and stopped her from barking. She was able to walk past other dogs at the end of the session no problem there’s still some work to be done and yet Leeds dog school made an incredible difference in just 1 session so worth the money!!

    I can not recommend Leeds dog school enough. Today we had our session with Dave who was brilliant. We have 2 very energetic border collies who pull hard on the lead and jump up at everyone. I wasn’t sure 1 session would make much of a difference but I was very wrong. After just 1 session with Dave I can see a big difference in both of them. With the techniques he showed us for all the behaviour issues we are having, I am 100% confident we are going to have them trained in no time. Thank you!!

    Ruth came to our house to help us with 2 Patterdale terriers, she was amazing! Knew her stuff, gave us tips we didn’t know about, she also followed up the training session with an email containing extra help, she was very friendly and down to earth, would highly recommend her, thank you 👌

    Just had Dave with us for a couple of hours and I have to say he was amazing. In a couple of hours we actually feel confident with our wire Fox Terrier. I’m so very grateful to you for helping us in such a small space of time. Very professional. Straight in there and got on with what needed to be done and I’m totally amazed. Thank you I will call on you again when we get our new puppy! Thank you so much. Highly recommend you.

    For review readers, listen to the Trainer and follow what they say.

    Dave came to help me with my rescue greyhound who is terrified to go outside & this has led to toilet training being an issue. She is also incredibly nervous of people & children. We managed to take her for a walk and she shivered, pulled & froze. Dave taught me some really helpful techniques & explained the mindset behind them. I found him to be really encouraging & eventually my dog ate treats from him. Our session is by no means an immediate cure for my dog but Dave has given me the tools & advice that with a bit of patience & practice will help us both immensely. Also video's to watch too which will be valuable. He reassured me & left me feeling confident that I can do this. I also appreciate that I can contact him if I have any questions. Would not hesitate to reccomend. Dave you are awesome, thank you 😊

    Well what can I say but sooo impressed with the training. Rob & Dave came to see us and our new rescue dog who was a huge puller on the lead. Within literally a few minutes our dog was walking to heel on a loose lead. We went out for a walk and only saw a couple of dogs but our dog was amazing with Rob & Dave teaching us and her what to do and how to behave. No more pulling all over the place and no barking at other dogs when greeting them.Best of all a much happier,calmer dog and much happier owners. Thanks lads 👍

    Wow! This place is brilliant. Isaac was fantastic! Our dog absolutely loved him and he transformed her from a dog that constantly pulls to one that enjoys walking perfectly to heel and more importantly; he gave us the tools and confidence to be able to hold her attention whilst out walking. We are so very grateful and Isaac now has a new friend for life. We are definitely coming back for more training as she gets older.

    Saw instant results. Literally from our door to the top of the street. Incredibly clear guidance for us. We feel really confident with the training he has given us. We had Olly he is a super sound guy, very experienced and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

    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 😋😋

    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.
    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.

    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 )
