Dog School Bristol & Bath

Dog School Bristol & Bath is here to support our community, learning about dog behaviour in a fun and interactive way!  Our aim is to pass on the knowledge and skills needed to help dogs fit in with modern life, whilst being happy and confident.  Welfare is always at the forefront of any advice or training we recommend, and we use the most up-to-date techniques provided by qualified dog behaviour and training professionals.

We would love to have you have you on board!  Get involved by bringing your own dog to our weekly training classes, specialised for puppies, adolescents, rescue dogs and adult dogs.  

Looking for some more specialised information about dog behaviour, or a class to attend without your dog?  We also run regular seminars aimed at giving everybody the opportunity to learn more about dog behaviour.  We cover a range of topics, so please keep an eye on our upcoming events and book quickly to avoid missing out!

Trainers' profiles

Sophia previously worked as a Training and Behaviour advisor with the Dogs Trust in Newbury, helping many dogs in need find loving homes. Before coming to Dogs Trust she ran her own business as a dog behaviourist in the UK and Ireland, providing individual consultations for owners as well as running mixed classes where her emphasis was on positive training techniques and life skills.


Sophia has a degree in Animal Behaviour Science from Lincoln University and a Certificate of Higher Education in Companion Animal Welfare and Rehabilitation. Her previous jobs include Puppy Socialiser for an assistance dog charity as well as being a Behaviour Advisor for Bath Cats and Dogs home.

Maria is a graduate of Bristol University’s Animal Behaviour and Welfare BSc degree and is currently studying for her Masters in Clinical Behaviour with Edinburgh University.


Before joining Dog School, Maria worked at rescue centres where she has helped many dogs overcome behavioural problems and eventually find their forever homes.

Giulia moved to the UK after completing her Masters in Law and started working in marketing within the Sustainability sector.  However, after getting her first very own dog, she realised her true passion was working with dogs.  Being a self-motivated individual, she enrolled on multiple courses to ensure she had the required knowledge to make this happen.


After completing her Level 3 Diploma in Dog Training and volunteering for Dog School Bristol and Bath for a few months, she joined as their brand new Coach in August 2018.


Enthusiastic about sharing positive reinforcement training methods, she enjoys helping owners develop a strong and happy bond with their dogs.
