Thank you for all your hard work during the last ‘season’ of puppy classes, young dog classes, advanced puppy and dog classes, agility classes, socialisation sessions and for all the help, advice and friendship you have given us.


R & A Jenner

Many many thanks for all of your help with Pip. She really has come a long way since the first session and it was so nice to actually be interacting within the group at the end. You really have been a massive help to Pip and I.



Fun Dog Agility is the high point of our week. Sarah is a calm, understanding and conscientious trainer who I would recommend to any dog owner, whether you have a puppy, your dog has issues or is just full of energy that needs directing. Agility has been a great way to build a bond with our reactive dog and give her a ‘job’ to do that she clearly loves. She has also gained confidence around other dogs, all under Happy Tails care.


Jo, Martha & Lottie

I am so glad that we came to your classes and puppy meets – you taught us so much. I have recommended you to many other puppy owners!


Lizzie & Toffi

Thank you for all your kindness and patience with the puppies at classes and your extreme dedication to owners and dogs. We are all so lucky to have such a caring trainer.


Lucy, Katie & Bay

Thank you for all your support, help and love that you have given us. Fun Dog Agility – Definitely the highlight in Waffle’s week. Valuable time with our dogs is so precious.


Tabbie, Hattie & Waffle

Thank you for saying ‘yes’ to us joining your agility classes. We thoroughly enjoy your classes each week. They are always so much fun.


Trevor, Janet & Tilly

Molly is an incredibly happy, sociable and (mostly) obedient dog and we owe that to your words of wisdom. You have taught us both so much. Thank you.


Catherine & Molly

Benny wouldn’t be the lovely boy he is without your help and guidance. I still think ‘what would Sarah say’ if I have any naughtiness from him!!


Carol & Benson

AKA Canine Concern Therapy Dog

The advice you give about understanding and dealing with my unruly puppy behaviour has been invaluable. I will be continuing with classes as long as possible as my puppy and I both enjoy them so much and there is always something new to learn.

I bless the day we met you and you took Holly and me under your wing! You are the best teacher and friend, and it is clear for all to see how much Holly loves you – she has come on in leaps and bounds thanks to your advice and encouragement. We couldn’t have done it without you!


Caroline & Holly

Sarah is really friendly and non judgemental which puts everyone at ease. She teaches ‘generic’ good practice and gives tips and learning for any areas that you are struggling with. She is clearly passionate about dog training and ensuring owners can genuinely enjoy safe and happy dogs. It has been a pleasure to have been taught by her.


SJ Brown

Can we thank you for everything you have done. We have really appreciated your fantastic teaching. You’ve helped to make having our first dog extremely enjoyable and a little less stressful!!


B & M Howden

My parents have been looking after Poppy and they have loved having her. They phoned today to say how proud I should be as she has been so well behaved. I just wanted to say thank you as without you and your knowledge I would not be the dog owner I am today.


Diane & Poppy

We both enjoy Saturday Socialisation so much and I feel very lucky that we have found you. I really appreciate the effort and consistency you put into your classes and can see how much the dogs enjoy themselves in them


Mitch & Saffi

We thoroughly enjoy your classes and have learnt so much from you. My husband was also saying how great they are and how much he has learnt too!


J Long & Quinn

New Puppy Home Visit 5* Very comprehensive, reassuring and practical. A major plus has been your advice in between classes too – a lifeline. We think you are amazing!


Jan, Mike & Mabel

Sarah’s calm confidence and encouragement was exactly what I hoped for – the puppies were able to think they were doing what they wanted. No forcing. No bullying – just rewarding the right behaviour. Now I understand what motivates my dog and feel so much more confident. I am sure we can learn to do anything with this approach. Loved it!

3 years later we have come back for puppy classes with Malcolm, confident that Happy Tails will help him to be a happy well behaved dog whilst retaining his character and bouncy enthusiasm.


Val & Duncan

It was useful having our 1-2-1’s and being able to address our concerns. Would definitely recommend.


Catherine & Cody

Classes were much better than expected and very worthwhile. Sarah is an exceptionally good teacher who goes beyond what is required.


Alan, Carol & Rupert

Thank you for the confidence you have given me with my dog which has created a special bond.


Daphne & Connie

Thanks for making the puppy experience such a pleasure


Julie Goodman & Bruno

We would like to thank you for allowing us to join the Advanced Puppy Foundation Course with our dog and knowing that you are only a phone call away if a problem arises.


Dawn, Pat & Troy

We first attended Happy Tails training classes when our beagle was around 4 months old and went on to complete 4 training courses. Sarah is a fantastic trainer and has provided us with so many tips and tricks of the trade! We regularly attend the Saturday socialisation sessions (which we honestly enjoy just as much as our pup), they’re a great way to maintain training and social skills with our dog whilst with other dogs and people. Sarah is always available to offer advice and answer any questions at these sessions and provide a lovely safe friendly environment for our dogs to enjoy! My husband and I can’t recommend happy tails enough & look forward to attending some agility sessions in the new year!


Serena, Tom & Bree

Monty loves Happy Tails. To go to school, be taught and learn and love your teacher with huge puppy dog eyes has to be a thumbs up!


Wendy & Monty

Sarah came to our house for a Puppy-visit when we got our beautiful mini-Schnauzer. She’d been a huge support and advisor before Poppy even arrived at our forever-home; recommending reading material, how to create a safe and loving home environment, and advice on those first few tricky nights.

Poppy has adored the Saturday Socialisation classes, and I’d say these have been the most beneficial to creating a happy, social, and playful puppy. We’ve made great human and dog friends, and Sarah is always on hand to answer individual questions, advise, and tailor training to issues that one or more might be facing. Nothing you say is ever something she’s not before encountered, so her experience is very reassuring.

Young adolescence brought about a fearfulness in Poppy in certain situations. Sarah came to the rescue with some one-to-one sessions and she introduced us to clicker-training, and other training adjuncts, allowing our dog to regain her confidence and joyful character.

I have recommended Happy Tails to anyone I meet with a puppy or dog.


Claire & Poppy

Sarah is a fantastic dog trainer, with superb knowledge of puppy training and canine behaviour which she just loves to share with her clients. Classes are friendly, welcoming and most of all such good fun.


Katie Betsy & Parker

Words alone cannot express our gratitude to Happy Tails, for their wonderful, professional, yet friendly and fun training of ‘us’ over the last 20 months or so, and for the love and affection that our puppy Murphy, has for them. He really cannot wait to get to school or class.

‘Happy Tails’ has given us the best dog/human training, socialisation, one to ones, help and assistance at all stages, issues and problems during our and our puppies lives together so far and continues to do so.

Far more than that ‘Happy Tails’ has for us, created a ‘Happy Family’ of puppies/dogs and like minded owners who continue to this day to meet, socialise and enjoy the relationships which ‘Happy Tails ‘ has inadvertently created for us.

We cannot not recommend ‘Happy Tails ‘ highly enough.
