Our philosophy centres around helping you build a better connection and relationship with your dog by using fun activities and games that channel your dogs energy, drive and natural behaviours in the right way. We want you to feel that maigc when your dogs chooses you over everything else! We run Puppy Foundation, Beginners and Improvers classes in our fully enclosed field in Stapleford, near Hertford using fun, force free methods. We also provide recreational agility classes for active dogs and handlers. All our trainers our fully qualified with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers and also hold qualifications in other specialist areas such as puppy training, agility, scent detection, tracking and concept training. If classes aren't suitable for you and your dog we also offer 1-2-1 training packages to help with any training struggles like recall, lead walking, jumping up etc.
Can’t commit to a regular class this summer due to holidays? Want to keep up with your dogs training during the summer? Or do you want to try something new with your dog like agility or scentwork? We are running lots of different workshops during the weekdays both daytime and evenings through out the summer holidays:

Agility training is a great way to improve your relationship with your dog, channel excess energy in a controlled way and build behaviours that help with your dog's general obedience. Find out about our recreational agility classes.
This course is well planned, with great training & fun to enable all to teach any dog scent work. Halyna’s zeal for scent work makes the course great fun for your dog & you!! I highly recommend this course….& let the fun of scent work begin!!

Excellent first course if you have just got your puppy and don’t know where to start! The classes are both fun and informative, extra help is always on hand if your puppy needs some extra encouragement or help. Lovely caring trainers who are passionate in what they teach. So glad Canine Connections were recommended to me!

Fantastic puppy course. Fun and engaging for puppies and owners, using positive reinforcement and no force. Looking forward to the next course. Highly recommended.

With our male Border Collie we are with Canine Connections since he was 3 months old so over 3 years now. Starting from foundation classes, through, basic training, obedience and now agility training. Lisa is a great coach and I would wholeheartedly recommend Canine Connections to everybody!

I have really enjoyed the classes with Lisa and her team! I have learnt so much and my pup has really benefitted from joining. I first joined the foundation puppy course and have attended other courses since. The sessions are always fun and you get the individual help you need. Defo recommend!
