Happy Dogs & Happy Families


At Happy Hounds our mission is to help you to have a great family dog and to enjoy life with your canine companion.

Our classes and services are tailored to the needs of busy families and modern life. Whether you live by yourself, with a partner or have a family (of the two-legged variety), we can help your dog to learn how to be well behaved and cope with the demands of 21st century living.

Happy Puppy Life Skills

Our Happy Puppy Classes are designed to help prepare your puppy for everyday life and the experiences they will encounter. With small class sizes our Happy Puppy courses are fun and family-friendly.

Happy Dog Foundation Skills

Our Happy Dog Foundation Skills classes are designed to provide you and your dog with the foundations for a happy and successful relationship.

Class sizes are kept small with a focus on making learning enjoyable and fun for both you and your canine companion.

Greyhounds & Sighthounds - Specialist Expertise


If you live with an ex-racing greyhound or a sighthound, you may have noticed that your dog has some particular traits or quirks that can leave some trainers baffled. But don’t fear, help is at hand!

Happy Hounds is owned and run by Susan McKeon, who is widely recognised as an expert in greyhound/sighthound behaviour.  Susan works for a national sighthound charity and has worked with sighthound clients across the UK. She has also spoken at national and international conferences about greyhound behaviour and training post-racing.


Our Services

Training Classes

Would you like a dog who comes back when called & who walks nicely on lead?  Perhaps you’d like your dog to greet people without jumping up, or to settle quietly when at home or out and about.  We can help!

Our Happy Puppy and Happy Dog training classes are designed to help prepare your dog for everyday life and the experiences they will encounter. Classes take place in Grimsby, and are fun and friendly, with a maximum of 6 dogs per class.

Behaviour Help

If you’re experiencing behaviour issues with your dog, our behaviour consultations cover much of Lincolnshire, including North and North East Lincolnshire and neighbouring areas.

Specialist Expertise with Ex-Racing Greyhounds

We have extensive knowledge and experience of working with and training ex-racing greyhounds, and travel across the UK helping greyhounds to adjust to their life post-racing.

Happy Puppy Classes

Our Happy Puppy Life Skills classes are kept small & limited to 6 puppies per class.

Happy ‘tails’ from our clients…

You had our Akita, Mika, in your puppy group in March this year.

Thanks to you Mika has grown into a well rounded 1 year old who socialises so well with other dogs.

I just wanted to say thank you and send you a ‘pupdate’ on her.

Happy Puppy Classes

We are very happy with the classes and Spencer is doing really well. I used the Leave it!’ last night (when he went to eat something he shouldn’t )and he did leave it – he preferred the cooked sausage!

It’s nice to have a dog trainer who isn’t rough with the dogs.

Happy Dog Classes

Thank you so much Susan for all your help and advice on training Gracie.

We both enjoyed the one to one training sessions and Gracie is a happier dog.

Walks are now a pleasure.
