About | Hounded

Hounded is a canine wellbeing company that’s on a mission to improve the health of dogs. From the busy owner who works full time and needs their dog exercised, to the new family struggling with a new rescue dog – we’ve got you covered.

ABOUT MEGAN WILDMAN, DIRECTOR OF HOUNDED

I started Hounded in 2016, with a vision to get city dogs out in the countryside, running and reaping the benefits. I love the countryside and gain so much wellness from being outside – it’s a no brainer that it benefits our dogs too.

My journey into the world of training and behaviour came through my work with foreign rescue dogs from overseas. Having worked at rescue centres abroad and (inevitably) coming home with my first dog, a rescue Podenco from Spain called Smiley, I realised she needed more behavioural knowledge and support – beyond training traditional obedience such as ‘sit’ and ‘stay’. That started my learning journey, and I’ve not stopped since. I share my life now with four rescue Podencos who have taught me so much and given me a special place in my heart for both foreign rescue dogs and sighthounds.

I am a fully qualified and assessed member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT) and a member of the International Companion Animal Network (ICAN). Professionally I’m committed to developing my knowledge and keeping my practice current. As such here are just some of the conferences and courses I have attended nationally:

“Megan is hugely personable and her easy going manner instantly put me at ease.”

“Archie’s Fuel subscription has been such a weight off my mind, especially this Christmas when I don’t have to think about delivery dates and freezer space!”

"I was skeptical, but she is less reactive out on walks and is now acting like a normal dog at home - I'm amazed!"
