Hi, I am the owner of Happy Yappies dog walking. I've always had a natural ability when it comes to dogs, growing up I had a Staffordshire bull terrier and a Lurcher, I now have my gorgeous Border Collie, Harlow.
I set up my little business around 6 years ago, and it's taken a long time to achieve what you all see today, but it's been a journey well worth taking. I have studied in Dog Training, Dog Psychology and Behaviour as well as Dog Care and I have Distictions in Dog Training, Canine Communications, Canine Behaviour and Animal Assisted Therapy Diplomas. I am continuing my professional development in Puppy Training.
I am Pet First aid trained, DBS checked and of course, insured!
Due to being so popular in Portchester and surrounding areas, I now have a well established pack of dogs whom I take on fabulous adventures, which are both mentally and physically stimulating for the dog's. Plus regular clients coming to me for help with dog training and behaviour.
I am popular for my flexibility, meaning some day's I can cater for up to 20 dog's different needs.
Due to my increased popularity I've since recruited some new invaluable members to my team, meaning we have availability for new pooches and also now cover Portsmouth and Southsea!

Hi I'm Lauren. I have always had an interest in animals but my passion has always been towards dogs in particular from a young age. I studied animal care at college but have also had a range of experience from volunteering at a stray dog kennels to dog hydrotherapy and working in a doggy day care environment and working exhibitions at dog shows. I have also attended courses on dog behaviour and learnt alot from them.
I currently have 2 dogs of my own, George an 11 year old Jack Russel cross and Dave my 6 year old chihuahua. I took a little break from the world of dogs due to having my daughter but I am happy to be a part of Lily’s team and helping out with dog walks etc. Who doesn't want to spend their day having fun surrounded by dogs!
