Bristol Dog School

(5 reviews)

Reward based dog training classes and private training for puppies and older dogs

Read More

Bristol Dog School is run by Clair Litster Huckle BSc (Hons) who set up the business with the aim of teaching owners how to effectively communicate and have fun with their dogs using positive reward based methods.

Bristol Dog School has smaller class numbers that are calmer and are better for learning and easier for us to get to each puppy and give a little more attention.

Reward based training is paying your dog for a job well done often called Positive Reinforcement (+R) it rewards correct behaviour so that unwanted behaviours are not rewarded and are then forgotten this avoids using punishment or aversive

training methods.

The reason we use reward based training is because science has proven that an action learned in a nice way that is reinforced with something the dog finds rewarding is leaned and retained for longer, alternatively an action punished may never stop as the punishment may still be rewarding to the dog if all it wants is attention.

They are amazing. Friendly to both human and owner. They teach you in a way where you can go home and continue training in the same way with your dog.

Ellen Roberts, October 2020

Clair the dog trainer gave very clear instructions which was backed up by video. So you could refer to tasks taught in previous lessons. Clair also made time to listen to individual issues providing good advice and help.

Went to puppy class with my mini dachshund Barney and was able to teach him basic commands and classes were very informative!!
