Lisa and her dogs

About Us

My name is Lisa and I am the owner/founder of Hunts Happy Hounds which is an independent, family run business in High Wycombe. Dogs have always been my passion and at the moment I am the proud owner of a beautiful Rottweiler and a cheeky Jack Russell.
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 their training. Working with your dog should not be a chore, but a way of bonding, learning together and having fun.

As an IMDT member, my membership is reviewed regularly to ensure my continued development is in line with other professionals.

Testimonials
Rosco
Bronny & Rosco

...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.
Ralph the terrier
Jen & Ralph

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.
Diesel the German Shepherd
Rae & Diesel

...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!
Eric the Schnauser
Derry & Eric

Fabulous - Lisa is clear, supportive, direct and fun with her approach. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone without any doubts.
M T & Poppy

Thank you for all the training help with Poppy. She is now fantastic when taking her for walks off lead, she never runs off.
