Dog School West Yorkshire

Welcome to Dog School West Yorkshire! We offer fun, positive training for puppies, adult dogs and rescue dogs, based on the very best scientific knowledge currently available. We know just how important the bond with your four legged friend is, and understand how much it matters to have a good bond with your pet – our aim is to get you off to the right start, or back on track, so you and your dog can enjoy your life together.

We believe in teaching you to teach your dog how to make good choices about his own behaviour, so he can behave appropriately without constant instruction from you.  Our classes aim to provide skills that are relevant to the real world, and that give you the understanding to continue training outside of classes. 

So whatever the age of your dog, and whether you need help preventing or tackling problems, get in touch - you are guaranteed a friendly and understanding welcome.

We are currently recruiting volunteers! Please click here and scroll to the bottom to find out more.

Trainers' profiles

Holly started working for Dogs Trust Leeds as a Canine Carer in 2014 where she developed a love and passion for working with Rescue dogs and puppies. Staying within Dogs Trust she moved to Dog School Manchester in 2017 as a Senior Coach to pursue a career in helping dog owners with their dog's training needs. Now working as Head Coach in Dog School West Yorkshire Holly is looking forward to running fun, informative and practical classes in the area.  


Holly gained a BTEC National Diploma in Animal Management and is currently working towards her APDT Accreditation (Association of Pet Dog Trainers). 


Holly has two dogs- Louie, a 4-year-old Miniature Dachshund and Nellie, a 1-year-old Miniature Dachshund Cross from Dogs Trust Merseyside!

Holly has been working with dogs for over a year now back down South in Buckinghamshire at a local rescue centre as a Dog Carer. Having wanted to move up to Yorkshire for a while now she jumped at the opportunity to become a Coach with the Dog School in Yorkshire. The idea of running classes and educating the public on correct training methods for their dogs was one that was very enticing. In her previous job Holly created a popular blog called ‘Tails of a Rescue Dog’ and was able to share some interesting articles on dog welfare.


Holly has achieved her Diploma in Animal Care and Management and a certificate in Canine First Aid. She likes to keep her canine knowledge up to scratch and enjoys attending courses and seminars. Most recently a workshop she found to be very interesting was one on Clinical Canine Massage to help dogs suffering from arthritis and hip dysplasia.


In her spare time Holly loves to cook, bake and go on adventures with the family dog Mckinley who is an energetic Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

Beth is super busy getting settled into Dog School, check back here soon!
