About Us

Our History

Best Behaviour K9 is a family business run by husband and wife Neil & Claire Losada.  Neil has worked as a Police Dog Handler and has a great affinity for dogs. The company first became a reality following the untimely death of Neil’s German Shepherd Mac who through his severe behavioural issues encouraged Neil to study dog behaviour and learn how to effectively communicate with them in a way that minimises confusion.

In the beginning friends and colleagues asked for advice and assistance dealing with their own dogs’ training and behavioural needs. Word quickly spread and demand for help grew. He began receiving referrals from local veterinary practices and eventually decided to offer these services to everyone.


Best Behaviour K9 are now referred to by more local vets and pet services than any other dog trainer/behaviour specialist. Neil and Claire now has a team of specialist trainers who have developed their individual training styles based on Neil’s methodology and ethics of training.  They are committed to helping clients bridge the communication gap between dogs and their humans, so that all dogs have the chance of a happy and fulfilled family life.

We work across, Barnsley, Rotherham, Doncaster, Sheffield and all of Yorkshire and beyond.
