There are a lot of "buzz words" out there with regards to dog training and it can be difficult for owners to sift through the jargon and be sure they are making the right choice when they choose a trainer.


Furry Frolics aims to talk in plain English and with a friendly approach to ensure owners always feel comfortable to ask about anything they don't understand.


Furry Frolics uses rewards-based dog training methods, whereby there is a focus on teaching the dog what is expected in certain situations, and ensuring good decisions are then reinforced to create a reliably obedient dog who actually wants to do the job we are asking, be that coming when called, walking nicely on a lead, or settling on their bed when asked.


However, in return for their side of the bargain, as humans we must keep ours, so our training plans always have a focus on presenting the dog with appropriate outlets for species- and breed-typical behaviours, play and a lifestyle appropriate to the individual dog.


Furry Frolics' main aim is not to turn your dog into a performing robot but rather to focus on developing important life skills, social skills and the ability to make great decisions that work for both human and dog. This approach will help your dog be set up for life in the fast-paced and sometimes confusing human world they live in.


We will look at the whole lifestyle of the dog in order to gain an understanding of what motivates him or her, and then build a training plan around the findings. The end result is a happier life for owner and dog.

Furry Frolics has a fantastic reputation in North Bristol for providing an excellent dog walking service.

Ellie is often asked why she still walks dogs 8 winters later, and the answer is simple- she loves spending time with dogs!

"There is just something special about looking round and seeing 5 waggy tails, and dogs just being dogs with no expectations upon them"

We walk dogs in small groups, with numbers and group members based on the  dogs' personalities and walker's experience levels, with an absolute maximum of five dogs per walk.

All of our walkers partake in continuous professional development, and are fully insured, DBS-checked and qualified in Canine First Aid.

"Education is so important for dog trainers, but having such a close, long-term bond with so many different breeds, navigating their behavioural issues with their owners and watching them grow up in the social group has taught me, and continues to teach me, so much about who dogs really are as a species"

Our dog walking service is almost always fully booked, but please contact us to be added to the waiting list.
