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 York 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.

YORK 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 York 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.

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.

    Amazing work from Ruth, saw a massive difference with my dog within the first half hour and can’t wait to further improvements. We will definitely be using Ruth again and would highly recommend. Thank you again!

    Ruth came to our house and in 5 mins had our dog completely listening to her commands which I was amazed at. Ruth really knows what she is doing and is extremely knowledgeable and so helpful in giving us advice on how to deal with our dogs play biting and how to stop her pulling on the lead when wanting to meet and greet everything she sees on walks! Ruth was very kind and caring to our dog and we would definitely recommend her to anyone. We have been keeping on with the training and our dog is getting much better and calming down now. Thanks Ruth!

    Ruth spent 90minutes at our home and local village with our dog, Nell and was completely brilliant and giving us digestible, effective and reproducible advice and tips to have a happy and obedient dog. We would thoroughly recommend York Dog School and Ruth! Thank you! Nick and Jess (and Nell).

    Ruth is very skilled and we would highly recommend. Ruth came for one session with our very young puppy and we were amazed just how quickly the puppy grasped the commands. We have carried on with the training and have a very obedient young puppy. Well spent money and wouldn't go anywhere else.

    We have a Rumanian rescue dog who has settled in brilliantly except she has absolutely refused to have a lead on and therefore we could not go out for a walk.
    We sourced someone to help and Ruth came to the rescue. Within an hour Ruth had her walking, and now(48 hrs on) she walks and walks.
    Thanks Ruth, you were fantastic, and would recommend her highly

    The session was excellent. I have a new, loving and obedient dog that requires no stress, shouting and chasing by us. You stopped all the bad behaviour straight away and left us with all the tools we need to start her on a life of success. Thanks so much.

    Ruth came to help train me to train my dog for reacting to other dogs!! She was marvellous - could make my chihuahua do anything- we did loads of exercises with him and he was totally responsive to their training methods!! I would highly recommend this dog school

    Ruth was amazing. We only had 1 session and the value I got from the time spent with her was unbelievable. Wasn’t instant has home work to do with our dog Buddy putting into practice the techniques Ruth recommended.

    Buddy is now off the lead most of the time and is recall is amazing even when seeing other dogs which was our real big issue.

    This 1-2-1 session was really helpful, Ruth knew exactly what she was talking about and proved it with the respond from our dog! We decided to get Ruth in to help with our 12 month old Cocker Spaniel who has always pulled on the lead and extremely food focused, within the first 5 minutes we honestly could not believe the change in Oscar and how quickly he was responding to her training! We really felt at ease with the training steps and we are definitely seeing results from the practice and tips Ruth taught us. Very happy with the results so far!

    Excellent session. I am an experienced dog owner but still found this of value! Ruth is lovely. Very calm and authoritative with training and listens carefully to any concerns around the puppy! Great service and highly recommend ??

    Ruth was absolutely fantastic! We decided to look into getting some training sessions for Ollie, our 7month old Golden Irish puppy to work on jumping up, walking on the lead and recall.

    We were a bit apprehensive as we were worried we would be made to feel like we had been training him wrong however it was the complete opposite. Ruth was lovely, calm and very professional. She really put us at ease and went through each training step in a way that was easy to follow and was very patient when we were practicing. She uses a correction and reward technique that really works!

    The session was very personal and we all (including Ollie) really enjoyed it. We have been practicing all that Ruth taught us and it is working really well.

    Thank you Ruth, love Paula, James and Ollie x

    Amazing. Ruth is so lovely and so knowledgeable. Within a few minutes of our puppy training session our puppy was responding to her behaviour training. The session was so informative and she worked with the whole family. We were left feeling confident and happy that we knew how to proceed and were given so much useful information both during our session and helpful videos to watch after. Our puppy clearly felt really at ease with Ruth straight away and we can’t thank her enough.
    We will definitely be recommending York Dog School to all of our dog owning friends.

    We had a 1:1 puppy/obedience session this morning with Ruth and it was more than we could have hoped for. We worked on so many skills including heel and avoiding distractions. It really built our confidence and we can see it working already with our pup! I would thoroughly recommend the dog school, it was effective, personalised and they follow up after the initial consultation so that you feel fully supported. Give it a go, you and your dog will be glad you did.

    Ruth was very calm and understanding from the start and was quietly confident in her approach. Our 8 month border collie was having real problems with lunging at traffic. However, with the right tools, she quickly showed us how his behaviour could be instantly improved. He was a different dog by the end of the session and we were very impressed and super happy how more relaxed our dog was. She sent helpful additional information which was greatly appreciated.
    I would highly recommend Ruth if you are having any problems with your dog.
    A trusted and capable trainer.

    Our dog is a re-home and while quite well behaved didn't walk to heel and did not come when called. In just one session, he grasped both concepts. Ruth has been fantastic, very friendly and very skilled. In that session she helped us develop our own commands and everything we needed to be able to carry on, on our own.
