Lisa and her dogs

About Us

My name is Lisa and I am the owner and principal trainer at Hunts Happy Hounds. I have owned and been around dogs all my life. Large dogs are my passion but all dogs are special to me.

At the moment I own a Jack Russell and a beautiful Rottweiler who gave me the inspiration to start Hunts Happy Hounds back in 2014. Training them is a privilege and gives me great enjoyment. I would like to share the knowledge and experience I have gained, along with the training I have received from organisations such as the IMDT (the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers), to help owners understand their dog's behaviour and needs to get the most from the training. Training should not be a chore, it should be a way of bonding and having fun with your dog and the welfare of the dog is paramount.


As a full member of the IMDT I am re-assessed every two years and keep myself up to date with the most effective, science based, training techniques by attending courses and workshops.

HHH Testimonials
  • "Thank you for all your help and support with Ralph. We are really enjoying life with a dog and a lot of that is down to our increased confidence as a result of your classes." [Jen R]
  • "...after only 3 training sessions with Lisa the difference in Diesel was remarkable. He's a joy to walk on the lead now whereas before it was a bit of a nightmare. Off lead he's coming back every time even when the bunnies are playing chase! Thank you!" [Rae W]
  • "...since you've been helping us with Rosco his recall has improved and he is much happier and more interested in what's going on. He always looks forward to his training." [Bronny]
  • Thank you for all the training help with Poppy. She is now fantastic when taking her for walks off lead, she never runs off." [M T]
