Our Dog Training Mission

Our dog training mission is to create the best possible relationship between human and dog by forming clear communication paths. By implementing calm and consistent leadership, you will have the foundations on which to build the most beautiful relationship with your dog.


Our motto is ‘'Leadership is Love!’ A lot of the dogs we see have been to numerous other dog trainers and dog behaviourists with no, or very little success. Unfortunately, some (not all) people within the dog training community aren’t able to achieve the desired results due to their limited dog training methods. We apply balanced dog training methodologies to the dogs we work with. This, in our opinion, is the very best way to train and communicate with your dog.

Our Dog Training Team

Ruth - Yorkshire K9



Ruth started out working at the dog's trust when she was 17 years old. After this she ran her own kennels as well as a dog rescue charity, during which time she recured and rehomed over 400 dogs! This opened the door to dog training and protection work for Ruth. Starting when she was 19, she has now trained over 10,000 dogs of all shapes and sizes, each one with different requirements and goals. Ruth has studied a variety of different training methods, and attended courses like ‘Thinking like canines’ by the world-famous Barabra Sykes! She also achieved a distinction upon completing her diploma in Animal Behaviour. Ruth is dog first aid qualified.

Martin - Yorkshire K9



Before he met Ruth, Martin was always interested in dog obedience. Particularly of interest was behaviour modification training, and working with high drive and working line dogs. Martin found he had a natural ability to connect and communicate with dogs, in a way that maximised the dog's potential. Martin has mastered his craft working with Rocco, as well as numerous other dogs over the past 3 years. Both Martin and Ruth have perfected their own personable and unique training methods that sets Yorkshire K9 apart from everyone else. Martin is dog first aid qualified.

Aylish - Yorkshire K9



Aylish's journey in dog training began alongside her loyal companion, Rocky, as Ruth helped her train him as a puppy. This encounter led Aylish to join Ruth and the rest of the team at Yorkshire K9. With a deep connection to canines and a commitment to balanced training methods, Aylish embodies the ethos of Yorkshire K9. Outside of work, you'll find Aylish hiking nature trails, experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, and enjoying a cuddle on the sofa with her three dogs. Aylish is dog first aid qualified.

Joe - Yorkshire K9



Joe's journey with dog training started shortly after starting my own business as a dog walker when I purchased my first dog, Rupert the Sprocker. After doing some basic obedience with him and gaining my second dog, Bernie the Border Collie, paired with working closely with other peoples canines I wanted to train full time. This is where I found the perfect opportunity with Yorkshire K9 I couldn’t refuse! Joe is Dog First Aid and dog training qualified.

Back at the beginning of 2020, Ruth and Martin met when Martin got in touch with Ruth to help him train his working German Shepherd, Rocco! Ever since they met and worked together, they have shared a vision for what is now Yorkshire K9.
