Hard to believe Marlot turns 6 years old this year! I needed you to know that he has been one of the best gifts I have ever received in my lifetime. I choose to believe that he is truly the MOST loved dog in the world and everyone who knows me, knows Marlot is my 3rd child 😊
When I originally reached out to you looking for a dog, I asked for temperament first: I wanted a calm, confident and well behaved dog. I never imagined that you would deliver on that request and actually exceed it! People in the neighbourhood remark at how wonderful he is – many are surprised we even have a dog because he never barks.
I cannot imagine life without him – I know that day will come too soon and I try not to think about it. I have never felt such a bond with a dog and I have had many, many dogs in my lifetime. I wanted to thank you for picking him for us and picking us for him. Truth is, we are the lucky ones to have been chosen as his fur-family and we are forever grateful.”

I invested in Marcia Scott’s training, techniques and positive methods years ago which had very successful results. I recently called Marcia to help transition my new dog to a completely new environment. Marcia solved various issues we were having and we solved these challenges in one training session!
Thank you Marcia and if we ever need help with our dog, we will definitely call you.

Thanks so much Marcia for teaching me to control Cedar’s barking…and only after two sessions! We both are much happier now. Your patience and practical solutions were a welcome relief not only to me but to my neighbours… Cedar wanted me to tell you that she misses you and your visits!

Isabelle, Kayla and I want to thank you for our training session – we are absolutely thrilled with the results! Your enthusiasm was contagious and your knowledge and experience are a godsend. All three of us are now walking around much happier and calmer AND we understand each other better!! We continue to practice the exercises you provided us with as we saw the results immediately.
A heartfelt thank you and if you need me to tell anyone how fantastic you are just give them my number! Best regards from all of us.

Miraculously, at the very first moment Marcia began to work with Marley we saw immediate results. She showed us how easy it was to get positive results with positive reinforcement. The first visit, she had him even rolling over, crawling and ringing the bells on the door to go outside! Amazing!! Marcia had us all standing there with our mouths open within the first 15 minutes! We had 3 sessions with Marcia, and she covered everything in her brochure and definitely more, showing us quickly how eager our puppy was to learn when we used positive reinforcement. I could have watched her work with Marley all day! This gal knows her stuff!
It truly is the best money we ever spent on our family pet. Not only did Marcia help us feel content having an obedient dog as our new family member, but when people visited, they could trust Marley because they could see immediately that he was obedient to the subtle commands we gave him.
Thank you Marcia for helping Marley truly be the wonderful, happy and obedient pet and for giving us tools to communicate with him.

I so want to thank you again for your help with Maya. She is a changed dog. It is amazing. Thanks again,

The thing that immediately impressed me was Marcia’s wonderfully gentle, patient, and positive manner. She quickly established a good rapport with our dog who was quite happy to respond to her. Marcia took the time to talk to us about the issues we were having with our dog, an adult rescue from a puppy mill. Her insight into the behaviour of dogs, her enthusiasm, and her concrete and practical suggestions provided us with a hopeful path to rehabilitating our rescue. We saw very quick results. Marcia definitely has the gift. It’s clear that she deeply cares about dogs and their owners, helping both to achieve their best. We now have a calm, well trained, well behaved dog, and much of this we owe to Marcia.

Purchasing our new pup, Finn from Happy Hound was the best decision!
Both Sue and Marcia are efficient and easy to work with. The Happy Hound facility is beautiful, clean and filled with love! Finn is a great addition to our family. He is so friendly, playful, cute and has a mellow temperament which is exactly what we wanted!!
The training packages that Marcia offers are so worth the investment!! Finn came to us as a 12 week old puppy that already knew how to sit, ring a bell to go outside and lay down! We stayed consistent with the training and he caught on so fast!
If you are thinking about getting a golden doodle look no further then Happy Hound!!!
