Dog Training and Behaviour Consultations

Dog Training Classes in Dowlais and HirwaunHappy Tails Training is a Dog Training & Dog Behaviour Business providing One-to-One Dog Training, Dog Training Classes and Behaviour Consultations.

I also offer home visits for other small animals such as cats or caged animals where I will feed and/or clean as required.

Please note I do not offer residential training as I believe that by being fully involved in the training you will build a much stronger relationship with your pet. All training is carried out at one of the training venues, at your home or a public park.

Dog Training Classes in Dowlais and HirwaunBased in Merthyr Tydfil in the South Wales Valleys, Happy Tails Training is owned by Nicky Evans (Master Trainer & Behaviourist).

After previously running a successful Home Boarding, Grooming and Training business until 2016, a change of location to a new home provided a great opportunity to re-brand the business to highlight a change of focus to Dog Training and Behaviour Consultations; and so the Happy Tails Training story began.

You can find out more about Nicky on the About Us page where you will find more details on the extensive qualifications and experience that can help you decide whether Happy Tails Training is the best place for your Dog to be trained.

Happy Tails Training

Why is Bakers dog food such a poor brand to feed your dog? Well the following ingredients list may explain why…

E320 – has been found to be tumour-producing when fed to rats. In human studies it has been linked with urticaria, angioedema and asthma
E321 – banned for use in food in Japan, Romania, Sweden, and Australia. The US has barred it from being …used in infant foods. So bad McDonalds have voluntarily eliminated it from their products.
E310 – Banned from children’s foods in the US because it is thought to cause the blood disorder methemoglobinemia
E172 – Banned in Germany
E132 – Can cause skin sensitivity, a rash similar to nettle rash, itching,
nausea, high blood pressure and breathing problems. One of the colours that the Hyperactive Children’s Support Group recommends be eliminated from the diet of children. Banned in Norway.
E102 – TARTRAZINE – A trial on 76 children diagnosed as hyperactive, showed that tartrazine provoked abnormal behaviour patterns in 79% of them
E110 – Sunset Yellow has been found to damage kidneys and adrenals when fed to laboratory rats. It has also been found to be carcinogenic when fed to animals
E104 – One of the colours that the Hyperactive Children’s Support Group recommends be eliminated from the diet of children. Banned in Australia, Japan, Norway and the United States.
E171 – Banned in Germany
E153 – Banned as a food additive in the United States of America. Suspected as a carcinogenic agent. See MoreSee Less

There are no Hirwaun classes next week sorry!

From the 18th of March it will only be the Tuesday class. I have tried hard to keep the Friday class going but it is costing me time and money to drive over from Merthyr and have only 2 people attend. As I also work full time I can’t keep doing that sorry!! See MoreSee Less
