Happy Dogs Training

At Happy Dogs our mission is to help people understand and effectively communicate with their dogs to achieve greatness in dog training and everyday life.

We value relationships, with people and with dogs. We are just as passionate about teaching our human students as we are about the dogs and we strive to create a positive, fun and successful training experience for everyone.

Happy Dogs Training follows a force-free training philosophy based on the most current scientific research and evidence.
Our methods focus on reinforcement and never include the use of fear or pain.

About Me
Happy Dogs founder and head trainer, Piper Novick, is an ABCDT Animal Behavior College Certified Trainer. Her “train happy” philosophy has helped owners understand and communicate with their dogs for 10+ years!

Happy Dogs started as a dream for Piper when she started learning about the dog training business through an apprenticeship with another trainer. Soon after she began working with her own clients and built a reputation under the business name “Piper Novick Dog training”

Piper continued to develop the business while pursuing her education goals and gaining experience through various jobs in the dog industry, including pet-sitting, boarding and other training facilities. In 2019 the business name was officially changed to Happy Dogs, a name that honors Piper's first dog Happy, and represents her philosophy that training should be a Happy experience for the dogs and the people.
