What Happier Hounds offers
Happier Hounds Dog Training offers a variety of weekly training classes for dogs ranging from 12 weeks to 12 years and above! All the family are welcome at classes and to participate where possible. Happier Hounds Dog Training aims to advise, support and instruct new and experienced dog owners in fun and effective training methods that all dogs will enjoy. Training should not be stressful for either owners or dog so class numbers remain small with plenty of time for dogs (and owners!) to socialise making the training process a little easier and more relaxed.
Should a dog not be suitable for combined classes Alison offers individual training sessions with dog and owner that may also include advice on behaviour modification.
