Meet Lou Bater

Lou Bater, BSc (hons), APDT, UK (01275), ABTC Registered is an experienced reward based dog trainer and has enjoyed competing in an array of dog sports including Agility, Flyball and Canicross with her own dogs

“Happiest Hounds was a wonderful course for both owner and dog alike. Great fun, very interactive and the small class with a maximum of 6 dogs gave us individual, tailored advice.   We went from a nervous rescue dog to one with growing confidence, even doing the last day off-lead and totally focused on me.  Louise is very knowledgeable and professional”
