“Louise from Happiest Hounds provides all the dog training you need with a friendly outgoing personality. She has worked wonders with ‘Bertie’ showing me what an intelligent dog he really is. The small classes are brilliant and you get lots of one to training. All for a good price too. I really recommend the classes”
