My name is Jarred Hodgson, I am the Owner and Founder of Happy Days Dog and Puppy Training, and these are just a few characteristics that describe me. I know each animal is different, and I’ll work with yours to give them the specific guidance they need. Whether you’re thinking about getting an animal, have a new pet, or already own a dog with behavioural problems, I am here to help.
My puppy training involves intimate understanding of your animal’s natural and individual history. Your pet has plenty of potential to learn and understand commands, and my techniques will lay the foundation for further training to build upon. I combine your needs and wants with the natural attributes of your pet. Basic puppy training includes, but is not restricted to: sit, stay, down, eye contact, recall, walking nicely on a leash, stopping jumping and biting, and good behaviour around food.
This training focuses on dogs who are older than 6 months. They should know some basic commands like sit, stay and lay down as the intermediate training will be a more advanced training focusing on commands at a distances and dog self-control. These are very important for your dog as it starts getting older and more confident. Responding to recall when there are distractions around is a major part of this and an area where many people battle.
If your animal needs help with a specific physical or behavioural issues, Behaviour Consulting with Happy Days Dog and Puppy Training may be a great option for you. Sessions can be done in the comfort of your own home, with personalized plans to fit your pet’s needs and your lifestyle.
Training the likes of agility, and flyball, dog sports are becoming ever more popular in the UK. I work closely with each one of my clients and their animals to implement my training techniques to get the best out of their dogs. I know you have a busy schedule, so I will customize a plan that suits your lifestyle. This is best for working dog breeds with endless amounts of energy.

Joey was signed for the 6-week puppy training as the whole family was doing their best to get him used to his new home. Thanks to Happy Days Dog Training Joey has learnt some basic commands that makes such a difference to our lives. Thanks to Jarred’ s advise I feel a lot more comfortable walking Joey and not feel afraid of perhaps been attacked by bigger dogs. My 2 boys played an active role during the training and therefore Joey also responds to commands from them. Onwards and upwards for my family as we feel a lot more settled and at ease after Joeys training. I highly recommend Happy Days Dog Training.
We booked a 6-week training course with Happy Days Dog Training and couldn’t be happier with the service we received. The classes were scheduled around our work commitments which was hugely appreciated. Our-10-week old puppy has learnt basic commands, and appropriate behaviour while walking on a lead and is growing into a well behaved pup at 16 weeks. I highly recommend basic training with Happy Days, especially if you have a young puppy!
Truly outstanding. Cannot recommend Happy Days Dog Training highly enough! Jarred, our trainer, has an excellent understanding of dogs and from the very first session our dog was learning important skills, he also taught us as owners (also very important) how to train ourselves when dealing with dogs and potential issues at home such as begging at the table, toilet training, etc… Please use his great service, as he obviously love dogs and care for their welfare 10/10.
I only had one and a half hrs training over 2days with Mya a border collie. She was 3-4months old. I had leash training mainly to stop her pulling and because she was rearing up at traffic. After such a short time she walks alongside me with no pulling and traffic is no longer a problem. She is now five and a half months and is such a good dog. I would highly recommend happy days dog training. He really knows his stuff and nothing is too much trouble whatever problems you may have with your dog.
