4 stars for work w/dogs, but 2 stars for admin. Scheduling & billing, a nightmare.

We first came across Rachel when we looking for a secure field to hire for our three dogs who were becoming increasingly hard to walk together. It was lovely to be able to relax, breathe and actually enjoy being out with them. We then started Rachel's classes with one of them and only wish we found her when they were younger. Her patience and positivity have changed the way I feel about George and has given me the confidence to feel I can help him to make the right choices. He loves her to bits and although he's got a long way to go she is able to show us glimmers of how he can be every week and always notices the improvements he has made and gives the encouragement to keep going. Rachel always has time to talk about any problems going on and listens patiently whilst being jumped at! She is full of great ideas and experience and I'm not sure where we'd be if we hadn't found her. I love that the classes are in a natural, real dog walking environment rather than a hall so it allows space and freedom when you need it and the opportunity to mix with the other dogs in a controlled way. I'm amazed at Rachel's manner with the dogs and how she sees the positives in them all and knows just how much to stretch them so that they have fun whilst learning how to cope with the expectations we put on them.

Canine Connection has two wonderful secure fields in which dogs can run freely and safely and this is how we met Rachel. We have two dogs, one suffers from anxiety we think through being attacked a number of times and so finding the field was amazing. Rachel and her colleague Debbie now walk our two dogs on a daily basis during the working week. Both of them adore Rachel and Debbie and are much more settled . We also attend training with our eldest (the anxious one) and his development has been amazing. Previously he was hyper focused constantly watching his surroundings and ready for action. Now he is much more foccused on us and less so on his surroundings. He is more relaxed and his anxiety is definitely less than before. I never thought we would be able to bring down the way he focuses on his surroundings but Rachel’s training classes really work and it’s wonderful to see our baby happier and more settled than he has been for quite some time. Rachel and Debbie really look after and care for our dogs and they are always exhausted after their daily run. I cannot recommend Rachel and her team and enough.

Have been going to training classes with my dog for about 4 months now and he literally has come on in leaps and bounds. The classes are taylored for group and individual needs with project work so you can practice with your dog at home. The advice given is excellent. Highly recommended.

I have used Canine Connection since my dog was 12wks old, starting from one to one puppy advice onto advanced training classes Rachel and her team have been fantastic. I also use their dog walking service and cannot recommend them highly enough, Logan loves his walks and always comes home tired and happy.

I attend Canine Connection training classes weekly. I have a Poodle and a Greyhound. Rachel is an incredible teacher/trainer, a joy to find! The classes are well organised, fun, enlightening and extremely positive. Rachel's ethos is one of patience, understanding and kindness which in my opinion is priceless. The classes are held in a large field which is perfect as it allows dogs and handlers as much space as they need. Happiest and Best classes I have ever attended. Thank you Rachel.

I couldn't have found a better dog trainer for my small chihuahua with a very big character! I had no idea what I was doing with a puppy so we had puppy one to ones from 10 weeks where i learnt the basics about positive reinforcements including toilet training etc, Rachel is always happy to give advice when needed. We have been at classes since he was 18 weeks old.
Winston has learnt so much and keeps up with the big dogs In the classes , every time we get a new project I think he'll struggle but he thrives from learning new things.
Winston also goes for walks whilst I am at work and when he hears Rachel's voice at the door he just gets so excited and can't wait to go and see her and loves playing with other dogs on her secured field.
Winston found it hard at first going out without me but Rachel was so patient and kind with him and took time to build his trust and now she is his favourite person outside of the family!
Thanks Rachel for helping me to making him into the gorgeous and friendly dog that he is today!

Good place to let your dog run free without being able to run off.

Two large closed off fields with lots of room for your dogs to run and around and play and great for training too.

Canine Connection Q&A

Canine Connection Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

What I love most about my job is teaching owners to communicate effectively with their dog and to see the bond and connection grow and develop between them. I like to give dogs choices and teach owners how to reinforce the most desirable behaviour so in the end the dog will want to make the correct choices.

What inspired you to start your own business?

My very first dog, who is still with me today at 12yrs old inspired my decision to take a completely different career path. We faced many challenges together at the start and together have been on an unforgettable journey.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am a positive, force free trainer. My approach to training, whether it be in a class environment or 1:1 is to help the owner want their dog to do things, not force them. I use compassionate teaching methods based on scientific research. Emphasis is based on having fun with your dog whilst still working on a variety of different exercises depending on which class or 1:1 session is being undertaken.
