Testimonials - 2019
“Amanda is amazing and so enthusiastic which makes her trainees enthusiastic as well. My puppy Kevin just loves her and gets so excited when she comes for training. Kevin started with the basic puppy training and now does puppy college on a 1-1 basis with Amanda.”
“Myself and my Daxie enjoyed it so much we signed up to the follow on Canine College”
I'm so glad I choice to do Puppy School with Amanda, she is a great trainer and extremely helpful. Being a first-time owner I really needed guidance which is what Amanda provided and more. She would always go out her way to provide some breed specific information and tips and never judged when homework didn't quite go to plan. Myself and my Daxie enjoyed it so much we signed up to the follow on Canine College. Amanda's assistant Bethan is also a credit to Happy Buddies, she was a great help playing and calming puppies during the class.
“Amanda created a fun learning environment where we learned so much”
Amanda’s puppy school was fantastic! We attended with our pup Billie and it has made such a difference to how Billie has settled into our family. Amanda created a fun learning environment where we learned so much. Most importantly Amanda gave us knowledge and confidence as dog owners.
“Definitely recommend Amanda and Happy Buddies, not forgetting Beth too! I had no clue about what my pup was capable of before we started the course, and now my pup is easier to manage and a whole lot more rewarding too.”
“Her training techniques, patience and love for dogs is evident from the moment you meet her“
Amanda is brilliant!!!
We were so happy that we were able to join her Puppy School classes last year. I’d highly recommend them to anyone! Not only does your puppy learn fundamental skills but you as owners learn things you didn’t even think about.
Her training techniques, patience and love for dogs is evident from the moment you meet her. She helped us from the very beginning and continues to offer her advice and support.
So glad we found Amanda, we wouldn’t want to be trained by anyone else!
“Our five year old announced tonight that she loves Amanda and doesn’t want the classes to end. I think Monty our puppy feels the same“
We have really enjoyed our puppy training with Amanda. From an early one to one visit to the series of Puppy School classes she has provided guidance and advice that has helped our puppy quickly become one of the family, and one of the better behaved members of it! Our five year old announced tonight that she loves Amanda and doesn’t want the classes to end. I think Monty our puppy feels the same. We would recommend her to anyone.
“We are so pleased with the results! Thank you!“
Can not recommend Amanda and Happy Buddies highly enough! We started the puppy school course with an over excited hyper Beagle who we didn’t think would be able to listen and pick up new skills however she is now able to do lots of positions such as sit, down, stand, stay and settle! We are so pleased with the results! Thank you!
“Everything is treat based and no one is made to feel like they aren’t doing it right“
I have had a few dogs in my time and done dog training but never been to one as relaxed and informative. Everything is treat based and no one is made to feel like they aren’t doing it right. Amanda is a lovely lady and Benny and I would recommend her.
“Amanda is a brilliant teacher, with so much patience“
We have learnt so much from Amanda at Happy Buddies. The courses are very well organised. It is reward based training which my puppy responded very well to. Amanda is a brilliant teacher, with so much patience.
I thoroughly recommend Happy Buddies for training your Puppy.
“Puppy school gave us the structure, information and help that we desperately needed“
Extremely grateful for Amanda and Puppy School. It's hard enough having a new puppy let alone trying to juggle work, life and puppy training. Especially since Lily was an excitable, 'bounce off the walls' Lab puppy with an 0.2 second attention span! Puppy school gave us the structure, information and help that we desperately needed. Amanda is brilliant, very informative, with great training techniques, clear direction and her passion and commitment to dogs shone through every training session. Couldn't be happier with Happy Buddies Puppy School, the value for money is exceptional, and both humans and canines get so much out of it. Highly recommend Amanda and Puppy School to anyone with a puppy.
“ I would highly recommend Amanda at Happy Buddies to anyone getting a puppy”
Amanda is a brilliant teacher and gave out a lot of useful tips and advice. Our 4 month old Labradoodle puppy Marley loved going to his puppy school each week and was very settled and contented there, which reflected in his eagerness to learn.
Amanda was very kind and patient with all the puppies there and helped each one to learn new skills in a happy and relaxed environment. The six week course was well worth the time and money. Marley developed amazingly and is now a very well trained and happy dog.
I would highly recommend Amanda at Happy Buddies to anyone getting a puppy. The peace of mind that knowing Marley is now trained, is priceless.
“Alfie loves seeing Amanda each week and we have both come on in leaps and bounds”
Alfie and I have done 121 training sessions with Amanda as we are both new to the whole owner dog relationship. They have been amazing! Alfie loves seeing Amanda each week and we have both come on in leaps and bounds. I would highly recommend Amanda as a dog trainer and we hope to join her Canine College later this year. Many thanks.
“We are all much more confident with our training and handling“
The whole family, including Bramble, has enjoyed puppy class and learned such a lot from Amanda. We are all much more confident with our training and handling - although admit we’ve got a long way to go! We’d definitely recommend as a must for any new puppy owners and their pup 👍
“I have happily told all who will listen about the fabulous advice from Amanda“
After a 16 year break of having a puppy. Amanda’s help was invaluable. Toffee is a very happy, beginning to be a well trained family member. I have happily told all who will listen about the fabulous advice from Amanda and the positive training she gives.
“Our pup Molly has grown in confidence so much over the 6 week puppy course“
Amanda & Beth are a great team, very knowledgeable and helpful with clear instructions to follow for ‘homework’. Our pup Molly has grown in confidence so much over the 6 week puppy course as have we. Highly recommended!
“My two younger children have loved being involved with the training and have learnt so much”
Amanda and Beth are fantastic! Being a first time dog owner with three young children I was very keen to get our toy Labradoodle, Frankie, trained as quickly as possible! Their lovely calm approach and easy to follow sessions have given us so many useful and helpful tips and training ideas. My two younger children have loved being involved with the training and have learnt so much from the sessions too. I would highly recommend Amanda and Beth and Happy Buddies to all new puppy owners. We have really loved the training course and found it invaluable, thank you! The Bell Family and Frankie xxx
