Puppy training & dog training in Bristol

We care about you and your dog and pride ourselves on offering a professional yet personal service. As leading experts in dog training and behaviour, we believe we can help you achieve your dogs’ potential.

At Talk to the Paw we understand what it’s like to raise a puppy. We have experienced the ups and downs of owning a difficult teenager who doesn’t listen and seems to forget all their training. We know the joy and worry of taking on a rescue dog. We understand what it’s like to live with a dog with aggression issues towards people/other dogs as we have been there ourselves.And because we understand how you are feeling, we can listen and work with you. We combine our knowledge of behavioural and learning science with our compassion and understanding of people to provide an all-round supportive service for you all your dog needs.
