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!

I cannot thank Lisa enough for all the training and help she has given us. We had so many questions and Lisa was always on hand to answer and come up with some top tips. There is no one better than Lisa and I would thoroughly recommend attending one of her classes!
Fantastic puppy course. Fun and engaging for puppies and owners, using positive reinforcement and no force. Looking forward to the next course. Highly recommended.

Lisa and her team are highly skilled and brilliant and poppy had lots of fun while learning some wonderful new skills, Training her recall was most important to us and she is brilliant after attending training as well as our connection improving especially on walks, We couldn’t have asked for more including enrichment techniques that have been beneficial for our pup that wants to work for her food, for anyone with a new puppy it’s definitely worth doing 😊
Thanks for all your hard work, love
