Harrogate Dog Training Reviews

“Had my consultation last night with my 10 month old German Shepard Storm. Ian was super reassuring with me and was great with Storm. I was extremely nervous as I’ve never had to take any of my 6 Alsatians to a dog trainer before. Can’t wait to get started.”

“We had a home consultation with Jacob regarding our four month old Whippet. We found Jacob very personable & he was great at explaining our puppies behaviours and why. He made a few suggestions for us to start straight away and we have already seen the impact of this.”

“We took our naughty Boxer Missy to Jacob and Co to address some basic issues. 3 sessions in, she’s walking to heel, so much more calm in the house and is a much happier dog. Thanks guys!”

Jacob Morgan - Founder & Principle Trainer
Jacob Morgan - Founder & Principle Trainer
Hi👋 I’m Jacob, a proud dog trainer and our principle trainer for Harrogate. With over 5 years experience, I love working with reactive dogs and behaviour modification to get the most out of them. I grew up surrounded by dogs as a boy, from owning my first German Shepard when I was just a baby, till today where I have 4 dogs – Ranger (Staffy X), Darla (Romanian rescue) and Bob & Tofu (English Bulldogs).

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.
