Narrow down your search

There’s more to dog training than “sit”, “stay” and “heel”. Dogs are complex animals and have the potential to learn various tricks and behaviours. While some people may want their dogs to learn basic commands or how to walk on a lead, others may want an agility training specialist. Whatever training your dog may need, Bark can help you find the best dog tutors in your area. All you have to do is tell us what training you’re looking for and we’ll do the rest.

Dog trainers across Bristol

Bristol is a city of dog lovers so there’s no shortage of great dog trainers to choose from. Get involved in Bristol’s dog-loving community, find trustworthy trainers near you and make new furry friends along the way. Remember, it’s never too late to train your dog or correct behavioural problems. From group classes in Victoria Park to house-call lessons at home, Bark can match you with the most suitable dog trainers in Bristol.

Puppy training experts

While dogs can be trained at any age, most dog trainers will advise you to start while they’re young. Puppies are generally more susceptible to training than older dogs, as good behaviours can be established early on. From house training to socialising to simple commands, there are puppy training classes for everything. Group training can be particularly beneficial for puppies. Group classes allow younger dogs to socialise and develop obedience in a stimulating environment.

How did you get into dog training?

I come from a family of dog lovers so we always had dogs in the house when I was growing up. As I got older, my love of dogs developed into wanting to train them. Watching Crufts on TV as a kid was a huge influence as I got to see what these clever animals were really capable of. I started by training our family dogs to perform simple tricks and can now provide professional training for agility and show dogs. It’s amazing what most dogs can do with a little bit of patience. I’ve been training dogs since I was about 11 or 12, if you count my childhood pets. Professionally, I’ve been training dogs for over five years. I achieved my IMDT qualification in the ‘Principles of Dog Training and Behaviour’ three years ago.

What has been the proudest moment of your dog training career?

This one is hard to say because I’ve had so many proud moments in my career so far. A recent one that springs to mind would be a stubborn little Boston terrier called Charlie. He joined my training classes about six months ago. He was so full of energy and couldn’t wait to say hello to the other dogs in the class. His energy and excitability were a big part of his owner’s problem as he couldn’t be trusted off the lead. By establishing good behaviours, a little help from a clicker and practising with a long lead, Charlie quickly learned what his owners expected of him.

Are particular dog breeds easier to train than others?

Dogs are very intelligent and receptive animals, even the supposedly “naughty” or “disobedient” ones. While I am yet to find a dog that cannot be trained, there are certain breeds that are quicker to respond to training than others. Dogs that have traditionally been bred to work, such as terriers, retrievers, pointers and sheep dogs, generally love to learn. Dogs such as pugs, Yorkshire terriers, French bulldogs, poodles and other typical companion breeds normally need a little more encouragement. But, as I say, every dog has its own personality and no dog is untrainable.
