Training & Behaviour 1:1's

Our family-friendly Training & Behaviour 1:1’s take place at your home, your local park, or at one of our secure private fields. These sessions are ideal for getting crucial training under way and those that need a little more support.


Agility is a great way to give your dog the physical exercise and mental stimulation they need. Whether you want to tire your dog out, try a new sport or compete – it’s a great way to build an excellent bond with your dog!

Me and my partner approached Connect Behaviour to further our training for our Labrador puppy. The adolescent group training has really helped with general obedience as well as socialisation. The trainers are always happy to give advice/help with any queries. We have recently had a 1:2:1 with Kerry and have noticed fantastic results in such a short space of time. Not only has our lab learnt a lot, we as owners have too! 100% recommend 🐾

We have been working with Nikita from Connect Behaviour since our puppy was nine weeks old and she has done wonders for us. Bear is really receptive to the training and Nikita is fantastic at giving us tips and guiding us through all the training so we have an obedient but very happy dog. We are so impressed that we have signed up to the adolescent classes that are being run by Connect to keep her well socialised and ensure her good behaviour continues into those teenage years 🙂

We found Connect on the Web and booked sessions easily. The trainer, Nikita, has been briiliant and she has taught our Jack Russell pup Alfie masses. The methods are fantastic and Nikita really gets the best from the dog, and us! Alfie has great fun during the sessions and Nikita keeps him engaged and learning for the whole time. We can't recommend Connect highly enough.

Finished my puppy's Stage 1 training and ongoing with 1-1. Would definitely recommand connect behaviours as they are very professional and really helpful. Kerry is really nice and always very patient to answer questions and doing very well on my puppy's tranining. My Puppy loves her. And Nikita working on my puppy's 1-1 now is also a very good trainer and helped me find the best way to train my puppy and make him happy. I'll also consider the next stage training once finish the 1-1! It's really worth trying with reasonable price on such great sevice! !

Have been lucky enough to have a couple of 1:1 sessions, and complete the adolescent puppy training classes with Kerry, and we are so pleased we have! The difference in our Sprocker is clear for all to see. Kerry is very knowledgeable, after being very nervous Luna now can’t wait to see Kerry at the training classes! We’ve managed to transform bedtimes and seen a significant decrease in her resource guarding. Highly recommend Kerry and Connect Training, only wish we’d found her sooner !! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Really enjoyed participating in the adolescent course with connect behaviour. Both me and my dog learnt lots and as a first time dog owner I feel much more comfortable/confident in handling and training her. The sessions all felt well planed out and everyone had a really positive and patient mindset towards the classes. I would really recommend it to anyone with a young dog who is a bit unsure on how to teach the basics and also for the socialisation aspect. I’m looking forward to taking my dog onto the next stage with Kerry and her team!

I have undertaken 1:1 training with Kerry and also attended a beginner adolescence group class. It was very easy for both me and my pup to build a great rapport with Kerry. Both the class and 1:1 sessions were brilliant. Kerry has given me confidence in being a canine parent. She is very knowledgeable and provided me with the technique and skills to continue with training independently although I will be booking more 1:1 for sure!! Could recommend highly enough.
