Dog Training Classes

Is your teenage or adult dog running wild? Is your cute little puppy something of a distant memory? Maybe you have a rescue dog that has just come to live with you and needs some basic training.

Would you like to be the owner of a well behaved, loveable dog who responds to your commands, and is attentive to your every word?  The good news is you can! The Delightful Dog course is the perfect option for you. Dogs don’t come knowing all the key skills needed to be a Good Boy or Girl and just like young children, they need teachers to show them the way and you can be their best teacher. By using simple, proven training techniques, you will be able to build a lasting, fulfilling relationship and connection with your dog.

I started training my little doggie when he was 12months. He’d had no training whatsoever. I’d tried but didn’t get very far until I met Rachel. She is amazing! We have been brining Charlie to classes for 26 weeks today and what can I say, he can sit, stay, lay, roll over, jump, speak, walk backwards, beg, give paw and take my hat off! If someone had told me he would be able to do all that in just over 5 months I would have never believed them! I’m so proud of how far my little fluffy friend has come in a short space of time and its all thanks to Rachel with her time and effort and believing in him

As first time dog owners of a high energy breed puppy and the many challenges faced, Rachel and Canine Connection have been essential to guide us through every step to build a healthy, happy and loving relationship with our little one

I was very nervous about going to the classes with Layla. However, Rachel was very welcoming and put me at ease straight away. Rachel and Rachel always have Layla’s best interest at heart and are very happy to let her settle in her own time and work at her own pace. Within a short space of time I already have a better connection with Layla and walks are far less stressful. Hiring the secure field has brilliant for Layla it is a delight to see her off the lead and running safely and free in the field chasing her ball or just roaming around.

Fun training classes in a lovely environment, taught by people that our dogs adore! – Una and Freddie came to us as two lovely, but nervous and troubled rescue dogs, who hadn’t had the best start in life. The Rachael’s helped them, and us, gain some confidence, and focus, with lots of fun and games thrown in to make it as enjoyable as it is worthwhile. The training field is in a lovely spot, meaning the children can disappear off into a far corner to enjoy themselves in the long grass whilst we and the dogs ‘work’.Away from the training field, we’ve relied upon Canine Connection to walk these two, as well as our previous, lovely old Great Dane, Jerome, and – as the dogs don’t travel well – we are delighted to trust them to house- and dog-sit, allowing us to spend time away with family.
