Frequently Asked Questions

You’re in luck, our group sessions are small, friendly and relaxed. With plenty of 121 support to get the most out of the session. If working with me privately, we go at your pace and tailor all sessions to your needs. 

We will ensure that all learning is working at the rate of both of you and you can both enjoy the process. Teaching both ends of the lead with lots of support to get you exactly where you want to be with your dog. 

You can book via our Booking System Here.

Group Sessions are 45 mins long, Workshops vary from 90 to 120 mins depending on what you’re attending. Working with me privately will have different timings depending on the package you purchase. 

Always bring your dog’s favourite food or high-value treats for your dog. A non-squeaky toy can also be bought to the session. A flat collar and preferably a harness (I’m a stockist of perfect fit if you would like a fitting) and a lead. Flexi Leads are not accepted in training sessions.

For young puppies, all learning is in a safe and controlled environment indoors. Currently, these are held at Coleshill Town Hall and Shelly Farm Community Centre, Monkspath, Solihull. 

You can make payment via the booking system using a credit card or paypal when booking your sessions.

All dogs will need to eat to survive, bringing their own dog food can act as a great reward system. If your dog isn’t eating outside of the home please call to discuss your dog to see how we can help further understand what is going on.


Here’s what our happy dog owners had to say about our services:

Would highly recommend. My Happy Dog is so much more than dog training classes, it’s a way of life! Charlotte is enabling me to develop my puppy into a happy, confident dog and me into a responsible dog owner.

Charlotte offers a range of ethical training programs to suit you and your dogs needs and is always available to answer your questions and guide you through your training. We love going to the training sessions which are small groups and lots of fun. Thank you Charlotte.

Andrea & Ralph, Puppy & Dog Coaching Programmes

Would highly recommend !!! Charlotte is fantastic, very patient and just totally knows what to do! Has helped me understand the needs of my nervous puppy, I’m a 100% sure I will be back for more advise and look forward to more socialization walks

Thank you Charlotte

Selina & Alpha, Puppy Home Training Programme

Only two sessions in with Charlotte and we’re amazed….can’t wait for session 3!

Yvonne & Lola, Behaviour Modification Programme

Thoroughly recommend my happy dog, Mario loved the walks and classes and learnt some very key skills. Charlotte is a dog whisperer!

Kirsty & Mario, Puppy Socialisation & Training Programme

Seth was 3 when I first took the plunge and went to My Happy Dog Training & Behaviour and OMG what a fabulous experience! None of the regimented training I had experienced at other clubs, which to be honest put me off training. Charlotte has extensive knowledge about all things dog and exudes a passion for ensuring positive reward based training which totally shines through when attending a class. All sessions are small (ensuring plenty of quality time), fun packed and rewarding (for both dog and owner).

Sonya & Seth, Dog Group Coaching & FUNactivities

Charlotte is a fantastic lady who really cares about dogs and reward based training. Coco has come such a long way in gaining confidence and being a happy puppy with Charlotte’s guidance. Charlotte goes above and beyond with her advice and has supported us in helping Coco to socialise with other puppies. I highly recommend My Happy Dog, wish we had found her earlier!

Shabnam & Coco, Puppy Socialisation & Puppy Home Training Programme

My Happy Dog classes offer variety, fun and positive learning with a highly qualified and talented instructor.

Sue & Theo, Dog Group Coaching, Private Coaching & FUNactivities

I was so worried about going somewhere and being told to do something aversive/forceful with her! I was worried about how she would behave in a class environment and as I’m shy I was worried about being put on the spot for activities with people watching!

Almost immediately at our first class all of my worries were forgotten. With the industry changing each day, it’s inspiring to see My Happy Dog at the forefront of it all, learning and adapting to the latest science-based methods and ideas.

3 words to describe my happy dog are (extremely) passionate, inspiring and kind

Ellie & Lola, Dog Group Coaching

The teaching for both human and puppy has given us the knowledge and tools necessary to enjoy our new addition to the family. Fabulous, many thanks Charlotte

Sarah & Bernie

I was worried about looking an idiot and not knowing enough about my dog or training. I did have a bad experience prior to finding you which did not help. Stand out things about Charlotte, her

Knowledge, confidence building, friendly

Niki & Nelson

I was worried that we would never be able to get through to Jeff because previous trainers were useless.

Fun, friendly, confidence-building – in a relaxed small group setting

Nicola & Jeff, Dog Group Coaching

I was worried about not knowing enough about dog behaviour to choose a suitable trainer and that we were doing things wrong.

We found the sessions encouraging, interesting and community

Laura & Archie, Puppy & Dog Group Coaching Sessions

We wanted someone that would be teaching modern methods, small groups and offer a variety of courses etc. My Happy Dog ticked all those boxes and many more.

Our journey was supportive, knowledgeable and fun

Liz & Freddie, Puppy & Dog Group Coaching & FUNactiviites

we were worried that we wouldn’t choose the right trainer for our two very different dogs and that we’d not understand after all it was us that needed training. You are patient, knowledgeable and passionate.

Adele & Smudge and Tinks

We had a bad experience so were worried all trainers were the same – thank goodness that’s most definitely not the case! We were blown away by you in our first meeting – we are so grateful to have found you! You are Knowledgeable, positive, caring.

Linda & Burth, Puppy & Dog Group Coaching Sessions

We had a  bad experience before we found you. I was worried I would be judged for lack of previous training experience as Olive was already 2 when we came to you. 

You were incredibly supportive, encouraging and judgement-free.

Laura & Olive

I’d had no previous experience of dog trainers so I don’t think I was worried at the time. I met you at Melbics and thought “shes lovely, let’s go to with her”. My worries came after. “How the heck am I going to remember all of this and why isn’t Teddy as patient as the other dogs. I still don’t remember everything all of the time but by keeping in touch I am reminded by you and the MHD community.

Michelle & Teddy, Puppy & Dog Coaching Sessions

 We were unsure during training but Charlotte gave us the confidence and tools to succeed.

We found Charlotte experienced, patient & caring

Sue & Louie

Even though I’d researched, read books, it still doesn’t prepare you for the challenges ahead. My first dog trainer only did one to one. Looking back given Bobby’s health history and his age, it was a mistake and it would have been better for him to be in a small group with other dogs rather than one to one training. I think if I could have found My Happy Dogs sooner, I wish that would have been the case.

Charlotte is a good-communicator, fun and rewarding

Jayne & Bobby, Puppy & Dog Coaching Sessions

All I knew when I decided to get a dog I wanted to take her to train and did not know where or who to go too. I was so lucky to choose My Happy Dog and the best Trainer in Charlotte I have learnt so much, we found Charlotte Knowledgable, approachable & patient.

Penny & Flo, Puppy Coaching Sessions & FUNactivities

Sizes of classes; many of the local training courses(?) operate large groups which I do not agree with as dogs cannot concentrate in such an environment and their handlers/owners cannot get any useful amount of individual support.

Training should be enjoyable and fun for both the dog and it’s handler/owner which is what My Happy Dog delivers, so “friendly, focussed and fun” would fit the bill

Michael & Guiness, Puppy & Group Coaching Sessions

I was worried we would fail not owning a dog before and having a child that never wanted anything but a dog for 9 years. I was worried it will be too expensive and a waste of money and we would end up breaking her heart. 

The reality is; I was blown away after 5 mins of meeting you by how supportive you and knowledgeable and caring you were. My Happy Dog is definitely not a business is what I tell everyone I recommend, its love, caring, passion and support.

Shereen & Darcy

Honestly, I knew I was failing Seth and worried I would be judged. Would I be able to retain the information and keep up with the rest of the class. My Happy Dog approach is Compassionate, inspiring, awesome
