Happy Hound Dog Training is simply the best! Elisa is knowledgeable, patient, and full of positivity. She taught us how to properly train our energetic Golden, Charlie. Now when we take him out, so many people call him perfect, mannerly, and obedient. All of his progress is thanks to Elisa. I can’t say enough great things about her.

We've been clients of Happy Hounds Dog Training since April 2015 when we adopted our male rescue Canelo. Within minutes of her arrival to our home, we were taught how to train and reinforce what was taught to, not just us, but Canelo and our other dogs. 

Since then, Elisa has been there for the loss of Canelo and to help us with our additions to the family. All of our pets have benefited and continue to progress because of her and her team.  Without a doubt, our family will always recommend Happy Hounds Dog Training.

When we found out I was pregnant last year, everyone told us that our dogs were too big to have around a baby. After completing the board and train program with Elisa both of our 100+ lb dogs are amazing around our newborn, guests, and their training allow us to take relaxing walks as a family. All of their bad habits have been corrected with positive redirections. Our dogs behaviors have truly been transformed thanks to Happy Hounds Dog training.
