Reviews from Customers Around Wakefield

“We feel so lucky to have found Yorkshire canine academy and have been supported by Jacob for the last few months. Not only did we have the 4-day kick start but a programme of 1-1 sessions to get us to the point of group classes. Jacob supported us with lead work and, most of all, distraction.”

“I would really recommend YCA. The team are all truly committed to helping owners and dogs. They fully engage with people to understand the needs of individuals and apply proven techniques to develop dogs. It is a pleasure to work with such great people.”

“We would definitely recommend Yorkshire Canine Academy to anyone wanting excellent dog training.”

“Such a lovely gang there at the Yorkshire Canine Academy!! My little French bulldog has only just started his training journey but I can already see a difference. Having them coaching you keeps
up your motivation to keep going, course corrects you when you go wrong, and keeps you smiling when your fur baby is being a monkey lol.”

Hi there 👋! I’m Jacob, the Academy’s Wakefield dog trainer with over 5 years of experience.

With so many dogs under my belt from owning them as babies to today where they’re all grown up and pulling their weight in the family – it might be hard for you not to see what type is right for your needs because trust me: no matter how much we love our animals sometimes they need help figuring out life’s little lessons on how best handle certain situations or people… but don’t worry about any of that just yet ;)

Let us walk through this together step-by-step until everything makes sense at least

How it works

We like to keep things simple; our steps below show our 5-step approach.

1. Book.

Our friendly admin team or user-friendly booking system makes it easy for you to book an assessment for your dog at a time that suits you.

2. Meet.

Our initial assessment allows us to identify and address the needs to be met or problems that need to be solved.

3. Plan

Once we have an understanding of what your dog needs, our training team will create a training programme that suits both you and your dog.

4. Train

This is where the hard work starts. Our training team will guide you through our tailored programme in person and remotely when you need it.

5. Graduation.

On completion of the course, you and your dog will graduate from the Yorkshire Canine Academy and will gain access to exclusive member services such as day-care, boarding and store discount.

One Happy Dog.

Why Choose us?

We promise a personalised professional training service with no compromise.

I have had a fantastic experience with Yorkshire Canine Academy! The trainers are knowledgeable, patient, and truly dedicated to helping dogs thrive. The positive reinforcement methods used are effective, and my crazy spaniel is responding incredibly well. The facility is well-maintained, creating a comfortable environment for both dogs and their owners. I highly recommend Yorkshire Canine Academy for anyone seeking professional and positive dog training.

Not only a great place to train your dog, which I have been a loyal customer to for about a year and a half now, but also a professional organiser of many insightful and often completely free seminars, filled with interesting topics and helpful advice that I’ve been able to take away and incorporate into training of my dog. I highly recommend this place, run by people who are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and experienced.

Attended a seminar at Yorkshire Canine Academy which I found really useful with some good tips to take home and use with my dog training. Would definitely recommend attending future seminars.
