What Our Clients Say

My girlfriend and I bought the sweetest boxer puppy (Scout), or so we thought. As she started getting older she started barking at us, biting us and humping us.


It was getting so bad that we were considering getting rid of her. I made the call to Happy Tails and liked what I heard. We sent her to the board and train, while we went on vacation and I remember thinking that there is no way this is going to work. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Our barking, biting, humping boxer is now the sweetest dog in the world. Scout doesn’t bark, bite or hump us anymore. In addition she now comes when called, sits and lays down on command. Debbe is an amazing trainer, we can’t thank her enough.
