Paws for Happiness started out of a love for our little fury friends. Our founder, Louise, is an experienced dog trainer who started out walking dogs over 17 years ago. She trained under her dad, Stan Rawlinson “The Dog Listener” and has now trained thousands of dogs herself!

Paws For Happiness is a rare-find as Louise has been training and looking after dogs for so many years that her incredible knowledge and love for dogs makes all of her services incredibly safe and a reliable place for your furry friend.


The relationship between people and dogs is incredibly dynamic and truly unique. Among domesticated animals, only dogs are capable of performing such a wide variety of roles for humans: herding sheep, assisting with disabilities and above all, being our beloved companions. This is why we wanted to create a safe place for dogs to be walked and trained!
