What are the Bristol Good Dog Classes?
These classes are designed to take you from no training all the way to having a extremely well behaved dog. We've created five different levels for you to work through all centred around having the perfect pet dog.
Here's your first mission, level one:
- 15 steps of loose lead walking
- 1 minute long stay
- Greeting somebody politely (no jumping up)
- Recall from another dog
- Emergency whistle recall from a food distraction
- Send to bed
Think you can whizz through Level One and go on to become our first 'Black badge' Bristol Good Dog? Our awesome dog trainers are here to help guide you through the task.

What age is appropriate for these classes?
This class is appropriate for dogs of any age.
What happens after I buy this?
You'll get an automated email. The email will contain a link to a form asking you to tell us more about your dog. At the end of the form there will be a link to download our exclusive app. On the app you can use your class credits to book onto whichever classes work for your schedule.
You'll also find a 'Social' tab where you can connect with other class attendees and ask questions.
Hate tech? Don't worry. If you get stuck we're always here to help just send us an email on email@example.com and we'll help you get set up.
Should I buy 4 or 8 Classes?
Four classes is perfect if you're not in a rush and just want to get started.
Eight classes is perfect if you're aiming for the "perfect pet dog" and want results in a shorter period of time.
Do I have to use my classes within a certain timeframe?
No, your class credits will remain on your account indefinitely so you don't have to worry about taking breaks or not being able to make classes.
Achievement Bandana & Certificate -
We believe that learning doesn't stop at the end of your course. That's why we give all attendees an achievement bandana, if your dog passes the Bristol Good Dog Level 1 you will be awarded your White Bristol Good Dog Badge. This is the equivalent of a martial arts belt or Brownies badges.
If you choose to keep training you can earn various badges through our different classes and prove to the world just what an awesome team you make.
