Private Adult Dog Training in Bristol

border collie in dog training in Bristol

I work with adult dogs of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds. Whether your adult dog is new in your home or has been with you since puppyhood, I will create a dog training program that matches your needs.

You may be looking for help settling your new rescue into life with you, assistance with challenging behaviours or to advance your training with your dog.

We start with a consultation where you can share your personal journey and experiences with your dog. I will then design a training plan tailored to your individual dog, lifestyle, and wants so we can get you living the life you dream of with your dog.

Here are a few of the areas we can focus on (depending on your dog’s specific needs):

★ Solidifying and perfecting basic training and cues
★ Developing your dog’s focus and concentration skills
★ Strengthening the bond with your dog
★ Advanced (and fun!) training such as scentwork and trick training to inject some joy into your training
★ Preparing for changes in your dog’s routine so you can move house, change jobs or welcome a new member of the family into your life in harmony

Don't Just Take My Word For It!

It was refreshing to have someone support not just my dog but me as well

Her calm and knowledgeable approach was reassuring and gave both me and Bear confidence in what we can do. Giulia was very understanding of our situation and in particular my worries about handling Bear when out and about. It was refreshing to have someone support not just my dog but me as well. I would highly recommend Giulia's approach to training as it was such a positive experience and has only strengthened our commitment to helping and supporting Bear with his fear triggers.​

Tina and Bear

Excellent advice and support throughout

I really enjoyed the training experience with My Kinda Dog. Giulia set us small, fun challenges in each session to practice afterwards and introduced me and my dog to the snuffle mat which has been extremely useful when visitors come over, and in busy environments. Giulia tailored the sessions to address what we wanted to work on and gave excellent advice and support throughout. Thank you Giulia! I definitely recommend her services.
