Tracy is the company director & head dog trainer for Happy Hounds DTS that also run some of their dog training at Academy 4 Dogs.
Academy 4 Dogs has a large team of staff & are all trained in dog signalling, first aid & Tracy tops her their knowledge regularly with staff training, whatsapp chat groups & newsletters.
Academy 4 Dogs Ltd is based in Stockport catering for daycare & pet services for pet dogs.
The daycare is designed by Tracy making sure every part of daycare strengthens your dogs behaviour & learning.
Happy Hounds Dog training team do come in to daycare in the day to train some of our daycare dogs & make sure mixing of new dogs & interactions are going well.
Academy 4 Dogs Ltd is more of a school for dogs than a daycare as we educate, give one to one training, separate in to temperament groups which makes us different to other daycares in the area.
