Excellent classes with superb advice and my dog Ellie has greatly benefited from the experience. And will be returning. For further classes

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.

After only a few hours. Our little boy Zeus appears to have taken something. He is very chilled and calm. I know early days, but a noticeable improvement .... Thank you Neil for your help today..... We shall continue to keep you updated.....

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.

Excellent trainers, very understanding, with excellent advice, they always have time for you and nothing is too much trouble. You always feel welcome. If you are considering taking you dog to training school this is the one! I would highly recommend coming here to anyone.

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

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.

Fantastic! Had a 1-2-1 with Neil yesterday on lead training with Bruce. Such good advice and help and you can tell Neil loves what he does :-) Neil also gave us tips on our clicker training. Took Bruce out this morning and he was great on his lead, we followed what Neil told us and it worked :-) thank you so much! Can’t wait for the puppy classes.

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 🐾 🐶♥️

Best behaviour K9 was recommended to us by a work colleague. Neil came to our house to teach us how to better control and understand our two wire haired fox terriers. Neil is so professional , polite and knowledgeable! He has a very good way of explaining how dogs tick. We noticed a difference the very same day, and by changing a very few things ourselves we have managed a massive change in our dogs! 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!!!!!

Review of Best Behaviour K9 by Emily Elizabeth Johnson
5 Emily Elizabeth Johnson

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!!

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.
I would definitely recommend Best Behaviour K9 to any dog lover...
Many Thanks Sam & Frankie Frost ��

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!! 🐶👍🏻

Review of Best Behaviour K9 by Lauren Jones
5 Lauren Jones

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.

Review of Best Behaviour K9 by Bernie Westhof
5 Bernie Westhof

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.

I would definitely recommend BBK9 to anyone and everyone

5 Anthea Quail

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

Review of Best Behaviour K9 by Sarah Cutts
5 Sarah Cutts

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. ��

Review of Best Behaviour K9 by Sam Watson
5 Sam Watson

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!

Review of Best Behaviour K9 by Lisa Kelly
5 Lisa Kelly

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!

We had Neil come round to help our rescue dog be less responsive and excitable around other dogs whilst on walks and become more relaxed at home, we have been using our training plan for a little over a week now and the change we have seen so far is brilliant

Had a 1-2-1 with Neil yesterday to sort out Luna’s responsive behaviour and barking. Very patient and showed me how to better cope and amend her behaviour. She will soon be more confident In herself and enjoy our outings more . Fantastic training for dog and owner! Thank you

Review of Best Behaviour K9 by Anne Hunter
5 Anne Hunter

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

Best Behaviour K9 Q&A

Best Behaviour K9 Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

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

What inspired you to start your own business?

I am a Nationally Accredited Trainer responsible for training Police Dogs and their handlers in a variety of roles. I am an Approved Trainer and Committee Member with the National Association of Security Dog Users, training and assessing security dogs and their handlers and I hold a City and Guilds qualification in teaching. I am also a trainer with The Guild of Dog Trainers.
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.

Best Behaviour K9 Services

Puppy Classes

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.

Dog Agility Classes

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.

One2one Training

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.

Behavioural Visits

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.
