I’M HERE TO HELP

My name is Louise and I am a qualified, reward based dog trainer offering dog training services including private one to one dog and puppy training. I offer dog and puppy training in Braintree, Hertford, Wickford and all surrounding areas. I also offer online dog training nationwide.

Dog Training in Hertford

& surrounding areas

I’m so happy to be offering one to one dog training in Hertford and the surrounding areas as I am back from maternity leave.

I’ve met so many wonderful clients in Hertford since I started Happiest Hounds Dog Training in 2014.  I am really glad to be continuing dog and puppy training in Hertford even though I’ve moved to Braintree since having my baby (house move was in the same week as giving birth!).

Please do get in touch with any dog or puppy training queries: louise@happiesthounds.com

Hertford 1:1 dog and puppy training appointments available on Mondays.

Does your dog or puppy:

  • Pull on the lead?
  • Mouth you?
  • Ignore you when you try and call them back?
  • React to other dogs?
  • Bark excessively?
  • Jump up?
  • Not listen to you?

Using reward based training techniques with an understanding and adaptable way of teaching, I can help you and your dog.  I offer a range of package options suited to you and your puppy or adult dog.

The Benefits of Private Dog Training

Puppy training sessions can begin even before your puppy arrives, this gives you time to ask as many questions as you wish plus be super prepared for the impending arrival!

Dog and puppy training sessions are held in your own home, garden and out on normal walking routes.  This helps you and your puppy or dog feel comfortable in their familiar environment and therefore get the best out of their training.

You receive personalised and tailored written session recaps which means you don’t have to remember everything from the session and can refer back to the written recap easily.  Sessions can be fitted in to slot around your commitments.

Alternatively, I can help you train your puppy or dog via Online Consultations.  Via Zoom or FaceTime, you can use your phone, iPad or laptop for the sessions.

Online Consultations are an excellent alternative to in-person meetings.  Using your phone / iPad or laptop we can meet via Zoom or FaceTime.   I can coach you live on how to teach your dog to do the things you wish, eg. not jump up, come back when called, walk nicely on the lead.

This method of teaching gets fantastic results and I can even join you on a virtual walk if you have a second person to hold your phone to film for you.

See package options below.

Do you have specific problems your dog needs help with? 

Pulling on the lead?

I can help you teach your dog to walk nicely beside you without pulling you down the street to the park.  I can come to you for a bespoke 1:1 sessions and we can fit sessions in at your convenience.

I can help you to teach your dog to enjoy running back to you when you’re out on a walk.

Other behaviour issues such as excessive barking or reacting to other dogs?

I can help you by tailoring training to you and your dog’s individual needs via bespoke 1:1 sessions and we can fit sessions in at your convenience.

“Our course with Louise gave Fidget and I a big start in the use of reward based training. The location is perfect – lots of real life distractions to be coped with during the session, which makes park life much easier to handle on morning walks…..The homework is great fun – the balls in the muffin tray game is a particular favourite. Thanks to Louise from Fidget and me!!”
