I am a qualified reward based dog trainer offering highly recommended classes in Bramfield (near Hertford) and Harlow.  I also offer extremely popular in-home training across West Essex and East Hertfordshire.

Dog Training Classes

Looking for classes to help your dog be better behaved?  Is your dog pulling you on the lead, distracted on walks, more interested in other dogs than you?  Have you completed puppy classes (anywhere) or private puppy training and looking for further training for your dog?

Want to teach your dog to listen to you as well as learn some fun tricks too?  Happiest Hounds classes on Wednesdays at Bramfield are for you.  Using reward based training you will learn how to teach your dog to focus on you instead of distractions, walk nicely on the lead, come when called as well as learning fun tricks, clicker training and scentwork.

Choose from follow-on, intermediate and advanced classes.

With a maximum of just 6 dogs per class, you get lots of attention and tailored advice for your dog.

These classes are for 50 min and start at 10:45 am (follow-on), 11:50 am (advanced) or 12:55 pm (intermediate) on Wednesdays.  

You can choose a start date to suit you.  The cost of the classes is £90 for 6 consecutive Wednesdays.

“Having been to both the 1:1 and the group sessions Louise makes the activities great fun but is very professional. She has empathy with both the dog and his/her owner responding to our various individual needs. We have learnt so much from someone whose love and enthusiasm for working with dogs and their owners is boundless. A great positive trainer whose sessions we both loved and learnt from. Thanks Louise”
