Why Happy Hills Hounds

Donna lives locally in Ferny Creek and loves nothing better than walking through the forest.  Having left her former life in performance mostly overseas she returned to Australia to pursue her passion working with dogs.  Currently studying with the Delta Institute she hopes to be able to offer reward-based behaviour training but in the meantime bush dog walks is her pleasure and also does pet minding in your home or hers depending on suitability and availability.  If you'd like to find out more feel free to send Donna a message or call her on 0424 240 984

OUR vision

 -  To improve the lives of dogs in the hills and to help owners’ understand, connect with and appreciate the animals in their care.  We don't just ask for the dogs’ co-operation we ask of ourselves to listen, observe and understand

 – To offer your dog the best chance of success in their development by offering the most up-to-date reward based training methods that encourage good manners and self-control, which in turn allows the dog to become confident.  A confident dog is a happy dog and a dog’s happiness is contagious.   We will offer a high level of service by being available, caring, understanding, reliable, trustworthy and be willing to help.   We are good at reading body language; sensing what is happening for the dog i.e. his/her emotional state and we will manage any potentially stressful situation that may arise during the walks so that the dog doesn’t have to take the matter into his own paws.  We are strong, consistent & concise leaders.


Donna loves dogs!!!!! I often spend time with Donna and the dogs that she's minding or walking and I see such a bond between them. She's a natural!! Any one who is considering using Donna for walking or minding their dogs will be assured that their pooches will come back to them relaxed and happy!    Carol Tregonning

Donna used to work for me in my pet business. She has now branched out on her own with Happy Hills Hounds. Donna is a natural with animals of all types (domestic and wild) and is currently studying with Delta Society to consolidate her knowledge and experience. I'm very happy to recommend her to care for your pet/s.    Nicole Stevens 

Donna has looked after our beautiful old dog Bella and she couldn't have been in more loving and safe hands! I would recommend her to all without a second thought.    Michael Tregonning

Donna is a great doggie walker and minder.  So great with pets I fully recommend her services.  She walks my Minda weekly which has been so good for her to feel confident amongst other doggies!!!    Robert Stephen
