At Happy Hounds our mission is to help you to have a great family dog and to enjoy life with your canine companion.
Our 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.
At Happy Hounds we’re dedicated to providing your dog with the best care, while you’re away. With our dog boarding service, we provide a real home from home environment, and our aim is to make sure that your dog feels right at home when staying with us.
Your dog will be treated as part of our family, and will enjoy the benefits of living in a lovely Lincolnshire village, with access to fabulous walks and open space.
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.
If you’re experiencing behaviour issues with your dog, our behaviour consultations can help.
We take a holistic approach to behaviour issues – looking at the cause, not just the symptom of the unwanted behaviour. We do not offer a ‘one size fits all’ approach, as all behaviour problems are different and every dog is an individual.
We provide a real ‘home from home’ environment for your dog with our home boarding service. We are fully licensed and insured and aim to provide your dog with the best care while you are away.
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 ‘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.Marie Hine
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.Sarah & Spencer
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.Margaret & Gracie
