Dog School Bristol

Get in touch to find out more!

Dog School Bristol 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, rescue dogs and adult dogs.  

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

We are proud to be the first Dog School where all the coaches are fully qualified members of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, UK
