What can I say other than brilliant people who know their stuff and are totally committed to helping everyone get the best from their furbabies and be the best dog owners they can be. Really friendly and approachable. The difference they've helped us make with our rescue dog is fab. Cant recommend or speak highly enough. More...

We had a home visit with Neil and Clare and within a week I had a totally different dog. Neil showed me how to walk max as he was very anxious about everything , I can now have visitors in my house with no issues , it takes patience but with time what a difference, can’t thank them enough well worth it and great advice from Neil . Can’t wait to start training classes in January. We called in to the coffee kennel to book the classes and saw Clare she was so friendly and stopped for a chat to see how things were going , coffee and scones , yummy , do not hesitate to have a home visit it is so worth it .. Thankyou Neil and Clare we are looking forward to the classes More...

Called today for some advice on my 13 week old Cockapoo who is starting to show signs on separation anxiety... Gave me some really good advice and tips for crate training and helped me feel at ease by reassuring me that I’m not the only one (my mum guilt is bad) hopefully now I’m on the right road! Generally felt like the lady (sorry I missed your name) cared and wasn’t pressuring sales and classes on me! Thank you again x More...

I recently went to see Neil for a one hour, 121 behavioural consultation at Best Behaviour K9 in Darnell (which was very reasonably priced) with one of my dogs who is nervous. Having previously sought advice from other professionals which resulted in little progress, I had felt that the outlook was rather bleak. Neil was super; I really cannot speak highly enough of him. He immediately pinpointed the issues my dog has, offered an insight into what my dog is feeling (explaining his reactions), and gave me a tailored training programme to work on. His communication was very clear and non-judgmental, which contrasts with some of the experiences I’ve had in the past. I feel I have a good understanding of what I need to work on with my dog, and how to go about this. Additionally, I now feel optimistic about the future with my dog and am motivated to work with him in the hope of building his confidence.Furthermore, I should add that before I came to see Neil, I spoke with Claire over the phone who was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and friendly, and very generous with her time in an effort to offer the best service.I have been so impressed with Best Behaviour K9, that I am in the process of booking a class for my other, non-nervous dog. I have already recommended Best Behaviour K9 to other dog owners I know. Many thanks Neil and Claire! More...

Neil came out to see our dog Sandie as she was reacting badly with other dogs and strangers and it had got to a point where walking her or taking her to different places had become quite stressful. After spending nearly 4 hours with us and assessing what we needed to do, Neil showed us how we could work with Sandie to make her a calmer dog. I can honestly say that we were on a high after Neil left us as we could finally see light at the end of the tunnel. We started the training straight away and the day after even the postman was shocked as no barking or snarling. We know we have some hard work to do but Neil made it an enjoyable experience and I would recommend him and his team to anyone. Keep up the good work :) More...

Enjoyed my first walk today with my girl, without nearly being pulled over and my arm pulled off. It's been less than a week since our home visit and the difference in my girl is amazing. We enjoyed a calm walk, played some games on the way and loved every minute of it. She's more calm in the home, and you can see how much she loves learning new things. Thank you to Ian for all his help and advice . If anyone out there is undecided about whether to have the home visit, it's so worth it. Thank you again! More...

We had a 3hr behaviour course with our ridgeback x Weimaraner, just after a few days we were noticing a calmer more relaxed dog Our trainer Ian was excellent with extensive knowledge, he made me feel at ease with asking questions and didn’t make me feel like I had been doing things wrong. I would definitely recommend this service, the difference in behaviour is amazing and in just a short period of time. I can’t wait to see how in the long term how the results pan out. Many thanks, Zoe, Tive & Ziggy More...

We visited the Sheffield training centre and coffee shop on Saturday and was extremely impressed. Having spent time in the indoor facility, talking to one of the trainers who was extremely knowledgeable and helpful regarding types of collars for training I will definitely be booking a course.

We contacted Best Behaviour K9 to help with our anxious but spoilt dog. Neil and Ian gave us the best three hour service, going through techniques and advise on how to handle the issues correctly. We are so grateful for the experience that you have gave us and are excited to carry on using the training plan you have provided us with. Oskar is already showing great improvements and already seems more relaxed and happy. Thank you to the team for your support your amazing! Thanks Mollie, Lee and Oskar More...

Just want to say a massive thank you for your advice recently. After visiting my daughters ( Mollie Jones - Heaton ) home we are following your instructions to the rule to improve our very loved ( but spoilt ) doggy Oskar. We have seen much improvement almost immediately and makes lots of sense. I think when of everyone gets themselves a dog it should be the law to attend a course to understand doggy behaviour. I’m sure this would stop lots of problems and less dogs been put to sleep after biting someone because people don’t understand the poor dogs warnings before biting. Humans should not blame the dog they can’t speak but try to tell us it’s us that don’t understand them. I highly recommend your training thanks again xx More...

Had a one to one with Neil and the results from gaining tips and listening to common sense ways of interacting with my golden retriever Stanley, this led me to sign up for rookie class I had previously been recommended to k9 by friends and colleagues. been to the induction session expecting to fill some paperwork out to find it was the most informative and fun way to spend Saturday night playing games!! I actually felt what it must be like for all puppies first time in a class x all the team were lovely caring people who really do love there work. Can't wait to start training with Sam and the team thank you for a lovely evening Marie halliday and Stanley x More...

We had a 1-2-1 with Neil a couple weeks ago with regards to our border collies reactivity issues with other dogs. Learnt new information about his body language and how best to handle when he is near dogs he doesn't know. Progress is definitely showing so thank you for helping us and highly recommend Neil & the BBK9 gang if you need help! P.s. Zeph says he loves the treat games! More...

Me and Bella had a one to one session on Friday with Niel, it was amazing! He makes things sound so simple and that allows you to understand the behaviour Bella shows. Now just to put it all into practice and hopefully start to enjoy walks again! I can already see a massive difference with her! We had tried everyone with Bella to stop her pulling on lead and being reactive, so BBK9 was our last change with her! More...

Frank the Great Dane and I have loved coming to puppy classes! We've learned so much and Leigh was fabulous. She explained things really well, and also explained why using s certain methodology would work, based on how dogs thought. Frank has come such a long way since the first class, and even though we have more work to do, we feel confident that we know how to continue training at home. Thanks for being so great, we can't wait to start Deputy Dog. More...

We absolutely recommend Best Behaviour K9, we had one to one training this morning with our 3 year old litter mate German shepherds with issues such as leash reaction & barking at visitors, everything we were told made perfect sense & by the end of the session the results were amazing.

Just have to say yesterday we had a trainer from Best Behaviour K9 come to our home to see Ozzie our 2 year old samoyed and put a plan in place and give us advice on how to deal with his reactive behaviour towards other dogs and his constant barking and hyper behaviour. ..we have started with the training and following all the advice we were given. Today it's like we have a new dog ...no barking ...no sitting on the furniture. ..he's a totally different dog so calm and relaxed I'm amazed in the change in him..so thank you ...you have made such a difference to our lives already...you guys are awesome and I would recommend you to anyone who needs advice or wants to come to your classes More...

Neil visited us today to help us with our 12 year old patterdale terrier, as we have just had a baby. Over 3 hours he gave us lots of tips to help us integrate baby and dog. Neil was very knowledgable and assessed our dog’s behaviour, tweaking advice to suit our needs. We have been following his advice this evening and can see our dog responding positively. After Neil had left my husband and I agreed that it was reassuring knowing there was lots we could do to improve his behaviour and calmness. Thank you. More...

Would 100% recommend to anyone wanting a little help with their fur babies. We have had a one to one session with Neil and in just a few hours I cannot believe the change in Molly's behaviour when out on the lead and around other dogs and people! We cannot wait to continue her training and will be sure to book her on some more courses! Fantastic! Thank you! More...

30 July 2018

I don’t even know where to start in saying how happy we are! From getting in touch with Claire who wasn’t even in the country but still got back to us, to meeting Neil at our home they have been fantastic! Our dog was a different boy by the time Neil left, so much calmer and happier in himself! We’ve got a long road ahead of us getting him out of his bad habits but we’re definitely on the right track now!!! Can’t recommend Best Behaviour K9 enough xxx ♥️ More...

23 July 2018

We have been training with Neil for the past 2 years and he has been fantastic throughout! We started obedience classes with Best Behaviour K9 for our rescued German Shepherd in 2015 based on a recommendation from the German Shepherd Rescue Charity.

Initially we had a lot of behavioural issues with our dog and it is such a pleasure to see the incredible improvements since beginning our training with Neil. We also had Neil out for a home visit and he sat down and listened to all the issues we had and taught us how to address each issue step by step.

We started agility classes this year and our boy has absolutely loved it! He gets a great work out both mentally and physically and finally gives us some peace and quiet on a Sunday night!

Neil has a great personality and an excellent way of making you think around any problems you stumble across during your training. We have thoroughly enjoyed both obedience and agility classes and I'm confident our now (fairly) well mannered dog has too!!

I have already recommended Neil and Best Behaviour K9 to friends and family and will continue to do so in the future!

Had the pleasure of meeting Neil today. He came to meet my Bullmastiff - Angus. The information he gave us was very clear and easy to understand for us.

Neil visited our home yesterday to help and teach us how to manage our dog Minnie’s behaviour towards other dogs walking by our property. Brilliant advice and techniques given to us.

Neil has worked with Blue and us with great patience and humour. Blue initially seemed fine but then all his anxieties came out, people visiting the house, noises, strange objects, everything you could think of scares Blue. Dogs are his big thing - he doesn’t want them too close! Blue trusts a few people now and walks with his dog friends Millie, Dew, Milo, Daisie and Bertie thanks to Neil. After working with Neil and finding strategies for Blue and us, and building our confidence Blue is doing great. He is still very anxious and frightened of the world, especially snowmen � yes snowmen and big blow up Santa’s but he trusts us much more to protect him and take a lead. We have a way to go with our own confidence but with Neil, Ian and Claire we will get there. A huge thank you Best Behaviour K9 you are brilliant thank you for being there. Thank you from Blue too. Xx More...

Would recommend these for any formal dog training or behavioural problems you may have with your forever friends.

Just finished 6 week puppy course and it's been great. All the staff were very knowledgable and clearly love dogs. It was very well organised all the dogs in my class worked great together. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend BBK9 to anyone looking for a good training school. We have a good grounding now to keep moving forward with our dog and may even sign up for the next level!! More...

23 July 2018

Neil is brilliant. He was with us and our shihtzu for 3 hours and we could already tell a difference with the dog when he left. To say we were reluctant to get a behaviourist, it's the beat choice we ever made. Can't wait to see how much our dog improves over the next few weeks once we have the training pack. Best money we ever spent! Thank you Neil. More...

A
23 July 2018

A1+ That's how I would score Neil after a one to one visit at our home!!!!
Have always had well behaved dogs but was out of my depth with these two litter sisters, Neil was patient and very understanding and when explaining things I was doing that was causing some of their issues it all made perfect sense, so now putting in to practice what Neil explained to us and slowly seeing results, had tried other trainers and their training methods seemed to make my dogs worse!
So Thankyou very much Neil
Anyone reading this give him a try you won't regret it

I just want to say a massive thanks to Neil and Claire, they came to my home on Thursday 10th to do a home assessment on my dog Lexi, I'm not going to go into massive details but I just want to say thanks we're only really on the first days full training and I can already see a massive difference in her, less growling, she is now barking at the door, she walks better on the lead and barley reacts if she sees another dog, I am so happy with her progress and I can't wait to see what the next couple of weeks will bring. So thank u so much for your advice and time 100% worth it. �� More...

We have better quality time with them now and walking them is a pleasure! Thank you very much Neil! I can't recommend you enough!!!!! More...

I could have cried at the end of our first session. Our badly behaved Jack Russell had his first session yesterday and I can't believe the transformation. Being taught how to cope with him around other dogs is amazing. Five years of anxieties and lack of correct knowledge had made walks almost impossible and traumatic. One session has boosted our confidence. Looking forward to the next one and continued improvement. I'm so proud that our little one can be helped and I almost welled up at his good behaviour. Would definitely recommend!! More...

Had a great 1:1 session with my 7 month old Lhasa Apso puppy Frankie today. Sam the trainer was great she showed us lots of training methods to take hope which we are already putting into place. . Also received some helpful & useful advice from both Sam & Neil.

23 July 2018

Having Neil visit our home to help with my rescue jack Russell cross was worth every penny!! He explains dog communication really simply and after I have adapted the way I communicate with my dogs has had massive impact already! My jackrusell always chased cars, now he walks to the heel! I can't believe it! He got really stressed when visitors came to our home, leading to unwanted behaviours, now I know how to best deal with this to help him eventually relax!There is still work to do with him but hopefully following the training plan we will get there!

If you are in two minds to book Neil for unwanted behaviours, go for it, my only regret is I did not book him sooner!

19 June 2018

Great service. Can't fault them. Prompt response to my enquiry. Obvious in depth knowledge. Gave their full attention during the visit, detailing why my dogs behave as they do, and giving ways to correct it - all without making me feel useless or at fault for any behaviours. Very patient and left me feeling confident I can make positive changes to my dog's lives. (In fact, saw positive results in my very first trip out after they left, following their advice).

Well worth the money. I highly recommend.

My Puppy started in the 6 week puppy class at 13 weeks old. This wasn’t my nearest training venue but having visited various trainers prior to joining Best Behaviour k9, I found their reward based training was the type of training I wanted for my dog. She loved it from the off, controlled socialisation and you will learn all the basic skills you need to know. Sam the trainer is great, really friendly and knowledgeable. A must for anyone that has just acquired a dog or needs help with particular issues. At nearly 8 months my dog has come on leaps and bounds. Highly recommend. More...

He got really stressed when visitors came to our home, leading to unwanted behaviours, now I know how to best deal with this to help him eventually relax!There is still work to do with him but hopefully following the training plan we will get there!

I would recommend Best Behaviour K9 for your puppy or dog. I've learnt so much having never owned a dog before. The training team also give you an understanding of why your dog behaves the way it does.

Neil is a great trainer and trains on the positive reward method and if you follow what he says in time you will have a great trained dog, the human handler sadly can be totally out of kilt of the dog lol Atmosphere is brilliant with plenty of humour which really makes the training sessions fun and enjoyable. Our Dog Dfor used to love going to his sessions even if he was not the quickest in his recall with distraction but that was always a moment of humour! We loved our sessions and I am confident you will as well. More...

Neil is an excellent, calm, experienced trainer who uses his considerable experience and a gentle sense of humour to get his message across. Training with kindness and understanding of both the dog and the owner. I would recommend him to anyone whether to socialise and train a pup or overcome more difficult issues More...

I own 2 German Shepherds and have been attending Best Behaviour classes since they were puppies. My 2yo has recently been promoted to the advanced class. (..proud mum.. ) so if you listen and work hard you will see fantastic results . The classes are fun and very informative and all the dogs vie for Neil's attention as they love him. He really is a dog whisperer! I now have 2 dogs that are a pleasure to own and get excited when i tell them its time for "school" as they get to meet their doggie friends and use their brains at the same time.The new premises at Wombwell are fantastic and i would recommend anyone wanting a dog trainer to give Best Behaviour a call.

Just finished my puppy course and from day one saw a great difference in my dog. Now at the end she is very well behaved and the training was really great. I can't wait to start the next course. A massive thanks to Neil, Sam and the rest of the team for great training and also the explanations behind doing training a certain way. It all makes sense and works like a charm. More...

Q&A

Since the birth of Best Behaviour K9, I have successfully rehabilitated thousands of dogs and provided their owners with the knowledge of how to effectively communicate with their pets. I thoroughly enjoy the new challenges that each and every client and their dog present. Occasionally I find myself being the last chance for some dogs due to their severe behavioural issues. I take great satisfaction helping owners and their dogs to realise their role in life and within the family

I have had the pleasure of owning dogs of various breeds for most of my life and I have always enjoyed the usual aspects of pet dog training. However, I began studying canine behaviour in earnest shortly after being given my first Police Dog, Mac, a German Shepherd. Mac had been re-homed due to a number of behavioural issues including serious aggressive tendencies. After learning how to read and understand dog behaviour, I successfully integrated Mac into our family and worked with him until he passed away at seven years old.

Our Puppy Foundation Course is a six week programme and is designed to provide you with the means of socialising your puppies and to lay down a foundation for education and training whilst proving you with a working understanding of dog training methodology. On successful completion of the course your puppies will respond to you.

Our Dynamic Dog Classes are aimed at offering fun Agility Training for owners and their dogs. This is NOT a sport agility or competition agility course. The aim of these classes are for owners and their dogs to learn new training skills while having fun with their dogs.

In addition to group training classes, Best Behaviour K9 offer one to one training. These sessions are usually held at our training school or at a place of your choice; your local park for example. These training sessions aim to provide you with exclusive one to one instruction and can be tailored to suit the individual training requirements of you and your pet. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can share the session with a family member or friend. Please ask for further details and prices.

At Best Behaviour K9, we appreciate that when it comes to the behaviour of a dog and it’s interaction with the human family members, every situation is different. Your dogs are expected to fit into an ever changing world that they simply do not understand. Despite being the most adaptable animals on the planet, they sometimes have difficulty figuring out exactly what you want of them. This misunderstanding and the stress and anxiety this regularly causes, is more often than not one of the contributing factors to the unwanted behaviours. It is during this time, we can encourage the wrong behaviours if we are not careful.
