'Lady & the Hound' is a tailored Canine Care and Coaching service providing puppy classes and private 1-2-1 dog training as well as doggy day care and boarding.
Founded by Imogen Haley after she became a dog owner herself, the business aims to help owners raise and coach their dogs to become well adjusted pets in an environment which feels safe and friendly to both dog and owner. We believe it is important for us to work in partnership with you and your dog in a kind and constructive way and to achieve this we use only 'reward based training' methods. Whilst caring for your dog, we look after them as if they were our own - from our own home in beautiful Battersea.
Imogen is a certified trainer with Puppy School UK and is a fully insured and accredited member of the 'National Association of Registered Pet Sitters' (NarpsUK).
'Lady & the Hound' is based in South West London, covering all SW postcodes and our Puppy School classes are currently held in Richmond and Twickenham.

We have a team of dedicated and experienced walkers who are available to walk your dog or simply visit them at home to check in on them and to keep them company.
Our walkers are all insured and never walk more than three dogs at any one time. Your dog will be matched with other suitable dogs for their walk so they can happily play and bond with their other walking pals without feeling intimidated and overwhelmed.
Hourly walks cost £15.00 and this includes pick-up and drop-off time.
Please contact us directly to discuss your dog’s individual walking needs.
