“We learned so much not only about training but about dogs in general“
Amanda is a great trainer - calm, patient, kind and fantastic with the puppies. Our cockapoo Nova had a great time socialising with the other puppies and we learned so much not only about training but about dogs in general. Would highly recommend these classes to any new puppy owner.

“It was always fun for puppy and owner and my children have become more involved in training as a result“
Amanda’s puppy school classes were invaluable for Bosco. She provided a large but manageable amount of information, with time to put what we learned into practice in the classroom setting. It was always fun for puppy and owner and my children have become more involved in training as a result. We are keen to continue and progress to Happy Buddies Canine College soon!

“In the last 5 weeks not only has rosie learnt so much but we have too as first time puppy parents”
Taking our little cockapoo puppy rosie to happy buddies puppy classes has been the most amazing experience. In the last 5 weeks not only has rosie learnt so much but we have too as first time puppy parents. Amanda has such a great way with not only the puppies but their families too. on each demonstration she will pick a different puppy and will adapt it to the level that they are at. the puppy classes have been such an enjoyable experience and we would highly recommend other people to go!
"The course was really helpful for us to fully understand on how to be with our puppy"
Happy Buddies is amazing. Amanda is fantastic trainer. She provides the best guidance, support, advice and knowledge. Her program has helped us with our puppy. We are first time dog owners, the course was really helpful for us to fully understand on how to be with our puppy. The program provides the best for our puppy, with socialising, interacting and play time for all the puppies. We will be signing up for the adult doggy classes. Thank you Amanda.
"You can tell she has a big love for dogs and her job and every lesson is interesting"
Both Amanda and Beth are amazing! we would highly recommend her puppy classes Brutus now knows where he is going and rushes through the door (probably as he knows Amanda has chicken or ham🤣)and often sits and waits for her! you can tell she has a big love for dogs and her job and every lesson is interesting with information and advice! Thank you Amanda.
"Joining Amanda’s course was the best decision, and has given me so much more confidence"
I can highly recommend Amanda and her assistant Beth. With a black Labrador puppy, and three young children at home, at times I was feeling overwhelmed. Joining Amanda’s course was the best decision, and has given me so much more confidence in bringing Tilly up and integrating her successfully into our family. There has been so much useful training, advice, top tips and reassurance along the way. The children love helping to train her at home, doing our ‘homework’ together! She’s a joy to walk now, always coming back when called, playing confidently with other dogs. So grateful, thank you Amanda x
"Fun,entertaining and useful"
Going with Max to the puppy school was a good plan!! Fun,entertaining and useful. I’d happily recommend Amanda to anyone who wants to get the best start possible out of a puppy.
Thank you x
"Highly recommend doing the classes with her and Beth... but book asap as they are highly sought after"
Amanda is amazing. Full of knowledge. I have learnt a lot in the 6 weeks of puppy school. Small size classes shich allows Amanda and Beth to adapt to the needs of your puppy. I will be taking some one on one sessions to help me with some quirks my puppy has but the classes have given me a good grounding. Highly recommend doing the classes with her and Beth... but book asap as they are highly sought after.
“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.
