Welcome to Haines Hounds Dog Training

At Haines Hounds we provide dog walking, puppy pop-in’s, pet sitting, one-to-one training sessions in the home, private training courses and a variety of fun classes. 

All of our handling and training is positive reinforcement, based around the dogs own choices. We use a combination of Clicker Training, Whistle Training, Look At That (LAT), Behaviour Adjustment Training (BAT), “It’s Yer Choice” and Premack Games.

We all firmly believe a calm approach to dog training gets the best results.




Ellie – I have gained a wide range of experience with lots of breeds and crossbreeds, spending a lot of time working in rescue kennels in Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire & Northamptonshire helping with issues such as aggression, phobias, hyperactivity, boredom and anxiety.

I have also fostered for different rescues and have re-homed many dogs myself, including those with quite severe behavioural problems. 



There is no such thing as a “bad” or “broken” dog. All dogs love to learn, you just have to find the right reinforcement for each individual. Training helps to build and strengthen relationships as well as recalls and lead work!

We provide a wide range of group and one-to-one training classes including behaviour sessions covering issues such as resource guarding, dog-to-human aggression, dog-to-dog aggression, handling/grooming fears and more.
