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.
Training owners is very important as you must learn the commands and the proper way to correct your puppy as they can forget. This why all our training is one to one with your dog and we do not offer classes. We believe that classes involving a number of young puppies can be very distracting for your dog.
Toilet training you new puppy can be very frustrating. We can show you how to get your puppy into the routine of going outside. We don’t suggest puppy pads as we believe your puppy should be trained to go outside from day one.

MOUTHING & BITING
"Mouthing" and biting is very common with all puppies particularly when they are teething but it can last until they are older. A bite from a puppy can be very painful and it needs to be stopped. Mouthing can also be intimidating for young children. We can show you how to stop this.
Jumping up at visitors or at strangers on a walk is a very common problem with all dogs. It can be very annoying for visitors to your home and it needs to be stopped as soon as possible. It's best to start early with your puppy as when your puppy grows it can be alarming.
Your puppy should be taught to walk on the lead. Particularly very young puppies find their first walks difficult and do not understand that they have to be on a lead and can often refuse to walk. We can show you how to encourage your dog to walk on the lead.
PULLING ON THE LEAD
All young puppies pull on the lead as they are interested in everything and want to play with every dog they see. This is not usually aggressive but can turn into this as your puppy grows. We will show how to stop pulling and show you how to get your puppy to walk at your side.
All dogs bark but if it becomes constant then it becomes a problem. As well as being irritating for the owner, it can be very annoying for the neighbours. Barking should be controlled and we can show you how to do it.
JUMPING ON THE FURNITURE
Your puppy will think it's great fun to jump on the furniture but it should not be encouraged. Furniture is for people to sit on not for dogs as they have their own bed. We will show you how to stop this.

FULL PUPPY OBEDIENCE TRAINING
Training your puppy in obedience must involve the owner. It’s vital that the owner knows all the commands and can work with their puppy to follow up the training. Sheffield Dog School and the owner work together to progress the training. The puppy enjoys the training and the bond between the owner and their dog becomes increasingly strong.
- Heel Work –walk to heel on the lead
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
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!Helen Parry-Jones 06 Oct 2021
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).Nick Knight 27 Sep 2021
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.Amanda Jenkinson 08 Sep 2021
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.John Rawson 04 Sep 2021
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
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.Cherie Carter 16 Aug 2021
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.
T H A N K Y O U ! ????
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!Georgina Owen 09 Aug 2021
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.Paula Clarke 21 May 2021
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.Lavinia Bell 18 May 2021
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.Amy Skelly 15 May 2021
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.Rachel Mills 09 May 2021
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.Leigh East 05 May 2021
