Welcome to Canine Connection Company

Welcome to Canine Connection Company



Here at Canine Connection, my aim is to teach owners to communicate effectively with their dog and to see the bond and connection grow and develop between them.

I am a positive, force free trainer, using compassionate teaching methods based on scientific research. Training using positive reinforcement is the kindest and most effective way to teach dogs. My approach to training, whether it be in a class environment or 1:1 is to help the owner create choices for their dog and to in turn help the dogs make the right choices to live harmoniously together. Emphasis at Canine Connection is to have fun with your dog, whilst still working on a variety of exercises depending on which class or 1:1 session is being undertaken.

Behavioural Consultations

Most behaviours that owners find unacceptable are perfectly normal for dogs. It is important to search for the root cause thinking about what the dog needs and how we can satisfy those needs in an acceptable way rather than just trying to fix the behaviour and suppress their natural instincts.

Puppy Life Skills


Puppies are hard work! That’s why it’s so important to invest time into training when they are young, so you can lay the foundations and set them and you up for success. Puppies can start coming to class as soon as they are vaccinated, up until 20 weeks of age.
