Happiest Hounds Dog Training classes are taught by Lou Bater who is a fully assessed member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT, UK membership no. 01275) and teaches using reward based, kind, fair and effective methods.

Happiest Hounds classes are unique, fun, relaxed and family friendly.  The small class sizes mean that handlers are provided with lots of support and attention.

Happiest Hounds Puppy classes are based on the Life Skills for Puppies curriculum developed by behavioural scientists at The University of Lincoln.  The best selling book ‘Life Skills for Puppies’ is provided to puppy owners as well as exclusive James Wellbeloved puppy packs.


Want a well behaved dog who doesn’t pull on the lead, comes when called, happily trots off to their bed when you’re preparing food and settles at your feet when in a dog friendly pub or café?  Then these are the classes for you!  Please contact Lou on info@happeisthounds.com for enquiries and booking details.
