Puppy Classes and Socialisation in Bristol

Two puppies attending puppy socialisation sessions in Bristol.

Have you just welcomed your new puppy home?

Congratulations on welcoming your new puppy home!

Having a puppy can sometimes feel a little overwhelming, but with the proper support, you can survive and even thrive during that fun but delicate time that is puppyhood.

By joining our puppy classes, you will learn more about your pup and how to help them become a happy, healthy, and well-balanced adult dog.

Learn more about puppy socialisation and training with your Bristol puppy specialist!

During this 6-week course, we will cover all the most common puppy problems and challenges, coupled with some incredible trust, play, and bonding activities to help you create an incredible relationship with your puppy.

These classes are run by Giulia Danielis, Animal Training Instructor with the Animal Behaviour and Training Council, and Isabelle Lawn, MRCVS.

There are only 4 spaces in the classes, meaning you and your puppy will receive a lot of individual attention and tailored advice whilst being able to work around other people and dogs.

Please note that puppies need to have had their first vaccination to be able to join and be under the age of 18 weeks by the start of the course.

The classes take place at Animal House Vets in Westbury, and the training area will be cleaned and sanitised before each class, making this a safe and appropriate environment for your puppies.

PLEASE NOTE that the first week will be an introduction talk for humans only, so we can share some valuable information and allow you to ask any questions you might have without worrying about taking care of your puppy at the same time. The following five weeks will be practical sessions with the puppies. 

For any further questions or information, please contact Giulia at – or you can book directly online using the link below!

Looking for Private Puppy Training?

Puppy classes can be great, but they don’t suit all puppies.

You might want to choose private puppy training instead for many reasons, and the good news is that I can help you with that!

"I feel more in tune with my dog’s natural needs and how I can use them to develop her training further"

I can’t recommend Giulia and her dog training sessions enough - she is kind, approachable and understanding. I felt listened too, and every session she ensured I was happy with the exercises we were doing.

"She has taught me valuable skills and really helped me with my confidence and in turn with Teddy’s confidence and trust in me"

I contacted Giulia after a recommendation and I was not disappointed. I had a new puppy and was struggling with being a first time fur mum to know how to handle everything that comes with a puppy, I wanted to ensure I dealt with things well and was teaching him valuable skills. Teddy loved Giulia from the get go, in fact every time we saw her he was always on his best behaviour (cleaver doggy), she is very modern in her knowledge and approach which I really liked. She has taught me valuable skills and really helped me with my confidence and in turn with Teddy’s confidence and trust in me.

"We have been super impressed with Giulia and her knowledge"

We booked 4 sessions with Giulia for the time period just before our puppy arrived to the time when she started her first Kennel Club Puppy Foundation Class. We have been super impressed with Giulia and her knowledge - here's how we'd describe Giulia and our experience with her: - Giulia is really friendly and professional - Giulia is super knowledgeable (her qualifications prove her worth but she always answers any questions we have, breaks things down really well and demonstrates her explanations really clearly) - The fact that Giulia is on hand in between sessions to help with any queries is worth it’s weight in gold - Giulia helped us with all the queries first time puppy owners are faced with…it’s a worrying time, wondering if you’re doing everything the right way so having Giulia to check in with and reassure us was brilliant - Giulia's deep knowledge of canine cognition/behaviour really helped us understand both the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of her methods. This has the added bonus of making sessions with her not only fun, but also absolutely fascinating! - Giulia was an absolute pleasure to work with and we already know we will be booking more sessions with her as our little girl grows to help us get her recall, lead walking, ‘stay’ etc as perfect as they can be - we would highly recommend her!

Area not listed? Don’t worry, we can train together online! It’s just as effective as in-person training and for some training issues, it’s even better!
