Dog School West Yorkshire

Welcome to Dog School West Yorkshire! 

We offer fun, positive training for puppies, adolescent, adult and rescue dogs, based on the very best scientific knowledge currently available.  We know just how important it is to have a fantastic bond with your canine companion!  Our aim is to get you off to the right start, or back on track, so you and your dog can enjoy life together.

We believe in coaching you to teach your dog how to make good choices about their own behaviour, so they can behave appropriately without constant instruction from you.   Our classes aim to provide skills that are relevant to the real world, and 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 now recruiting volunteers! Click here for more information.

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 dogs' 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 has her Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) accreditation.

 

Holly has two dogs: Louie, a 4-year-old Miniature Dachshund and Nellie, a 2-year-old Miniature Dachshund Cross from Dogs Trust Merseyside!

Beth has recently graduated from Bishop Burton College with a BSc (Hons) in Applied Animal Behaviour and Training.  Whilst studying, she volunteered with local dog trainers, attended seminars and trained her own dog, which helped develop essential knowledge.  Since graduating, Beth has run a dog training school for two years, which has given her experience with dogs of different breeds, temperaments and ages.  During this time, a soft spot for Border Collies developed.

 

In her spare time, Beth enjoys training and competing with her four Border Collies (Hazel, Ollie, Bella and Evie) all around the country!

Annie graduated with a degree in MSc Clinical Animal Behaviour from the University of Lincoln in 2013.   After that, she set up her own business running puppy, adolescent and adult classes in the local area, as well as doing 1-2-1 training and dog walking.  She joined Dog School West Yorkshire in late 2018 as their new Coach.

 

Annie owns one rescue crossbreed called Buddy and enjoys walking him in Yorkshire hills in her spare time.
