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!
Training you Rescue Dog is vital from day one! Rescue dogs or puppies may have been mistreated or may simply have bad behaviour so it’s important that you get expert help as soon as possible.
We have trained Rescue dogs for many years in Yorkshire and this experience means we can deal with the problems you are likely to encounter. In recent years as well as UK Rescue Centres, we have trained dogs from charities in Romania, Greece, Cyprus, Bosnia, Macedonia and many other countries with considerable success and in all cases the dogs just needed to learn good manners and had no major problems.

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.

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.Tammy Majchrzak 01 Jul 2021
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 😊Lisa Duffy 30 Jun 2021
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 👍Margaret Hudson 23 Jun 2021
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.Jill Davey 27 May 2021
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
