WHY WE EXIST
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.

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.
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.
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.
