About Our Trainers


Lyn Wilson

Hi, I’m Lyn Wilson, owner of Happy Dogs Training in North London. I have two dogs who also participate in a wide range of classes all for fun; they have both passed their Gold Good Citizen Award and take part in our Display Team and promoting responsible dog ownership. I have been involved with dogs all my life and for the last 20 years have been interested in dog training and behaviour. I am passionate about responsible dog ownership and the healthy balance of owning a well-trained dog and still have a life with work, family, and hobbies. I have attended and assisted at many different training clubs before deciding to set up a training centre which could offer everything that the owners I speak to want. We now have an amazing facility that boasts a wide range of classes to satisfy everyone. We have a display team that attends local school fetes and shows to promote responsible dog ownership and to show what fun a well trained dog can be.

I am experienced in the fields of pet obedience, working gun dogs, scent work, Hoopers and agility using a variety of training methods. I have attended college for canine studies (theory and practical) and I am working towards Kennel Club Accreditation. I am an Affiliated Member of the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers and the RCDTBP and Instructor qualified with the I.A.B.T.C as well as being a qualified Agility Instructor and a qualified Advanced Instructor with the P.D.T.I.
