Taylor Made Training - Dog and Puppy Training in Skipton, Yorkshire

At Taylor Made Training I offer pet dog training and puppy training classes in Carleton, Skipton (North Yorkshire) and also home visits either to deal with a specific training problem e.g. recall or for behaviour problems affecting you and your dog.

As a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers my classes have been assessed as adhering to the APDT Code of Practice. I offer you the ideal combination of theoretical knowledge and practical experience built up over many years. In addition - I have a maximum number of SIX DOGS in each class!

To find out more about my pet dog training classes, puppy training classes and home visits within the Skipton area, please take a look at my website. If you have any questions, simply fill in the contact form, or email me direct and I will be in touch with you as soon as possible.


Maximum of SIX dogs in each class

Classes take place on Thursday evenings in Carleton Village Hall, Skipton. Both pet dog training and puppy training courses are guaranteed to be a fun learning experience for both ends of the lead!

There will be no more than six dogs in the class. Whilst this ensures there is time to give everyone individual attention, it also helps to decrease stress for your pet. I do not believe in cramming lots of dogs into the hall, putting your dog under unnecessary stress. You will know from your own experience that if you’re under stress, learning is difficult, if not impossible.

Classes are fun, informal and enjoyable. Methods are kind, fair and effective resulting in a successful and rewarding relationship with your dog. No shouting, yanking or pulling and certainly no ‘alpha rolls’ or pinning dogs to the floor.
Dog and Puppy Training in Skipton

Classes are not suitable for all dogs - dogs that are aggressive or bark excessively for example. To have such dogs in class is completely unfair on everyone – dogs and people. One to one work is recommended for these dogs.

Life Skills Classes are for dogs of all ages. The top threerequirementsfor most people from their dog are - to walk loosely on the lead, to come back when called and not to jump up! These and more will be covered during the course enabling you both to enjoy your time to the full.

You will receive a pack of informative handouts which will support your learning over the course and can be used as a reference at a later date.

Puppy training classes for puppies up to 18 weeks at the start of the class. Puppies are very cute and entertaining yet can also be incredibly hard work. There are probably few who have not, at some point, questioned their sanity when deciding to get a puppy!

During the course you will learn how to guide your puppy's learning to produce a confident, well behaved young adult.

We will cover everything you need to know to get your puppy off on the right paw. In addition, you will receive 'Life Skills for Puppies' book which, together with attendance at class, will ensure your puppy gets the best foundation for life.

One To One Training
Classes are not for everyone. Some dogs or their owners, can find the whole class environment unsettling and then a class is not the right place to be. Sometimes a private one to one lesson can get you started before you sign up for a class, or sometimes life is just too busy to commit to a regular slot each week.

For all of the above reasons (and probably many more!) I offer one to one private training. During a private lesson we can look at any of the training issues you may have, such as loose lead walking, coming back when called, jumping up etc. A one to one can also be useful for new puppy owners, when you can have the chance to ask any of the questions that you might not get answered elsewhere.

My ultimate goal is to improve your understanding of your dog in order to enable you both to enjoy fun, quality time together.

Problem Behaviours
Sometimes our dogs display behaviours we find unacceptable which may leave you feeling stressed or even embarrassed.

I will visit you in your home and take full details of your dog's history and the issues you are facing. I will then recommend a course of action to modify your dog's behaviour and will show you how to carry out any training exercises etc. required.

The programme will, as always, be based on sound science and understanding of your dog’s psychology.

The initial visit will take between 2-3 hours and whilst a follow up visit may be required, there will be on-going email and telephone support available for a period following the consultation.

There may be occasions when your pet will need to have a veterinary examination to rule out a physical cause for their behaviour.
