Measuring, tracking and continually building your connection with your dog is hands down the fastest and most fun path to incredible training results (in REAL LIFE, not just in training sessions).
…And the Canine Connection Roadmap show you exactly how to do it!
Learn how to truly understand your dog and strengthen your relationship. Nurture a dog who WANTS to listen to you and who you can take anywhere & trust in any situation
The truth is that bringing up a puppy is hard work and it can feel totally overwhelming. Lots of new puppy parents find themselves in tears on more than one occasion, or feel so frustrated that they accidentally raise their voice at their puppy, without meaning to.
If you’re anything like the clients that come to me for help, you may have wondered if the biting will EVER STOP, because no matter how many times you re-direct them, they still want to bite your hands or arms over any toy! Or how to manage toilet training when you’ve just spent 15 mins outside and they still come in and pee on your carpet!
Looking after a puppy is a full time job (in addition to your existing job and other responsibilities) and we can feel a real pressure to “get it right”. That pressure, coupled with the exhaustion that comes with the 5am wake up call (!) might even have had you questioning if getting this puppy was the right choice. I get it, I really do, and I’ve been there too.
This is where lots of us turn to a local group class for help…..
This is such a common struggle for dog parents and it’s not that you’re doing training “wrong”. It’s not even just adding in distractions that makes things harder for your dog.
It’s just that there’s a really important ingredient that is so often missed when you attend a class or watch a demo video online.
And that is adapting your training to build a connection that fits the needs of YOUR individual dog.
CANINE CONNECTION SHOWS YOU HOW TO:
Because when you don’t have a trainer living in your house to give you individualised advice (as most of us don’t!) trying to figure it all out on your own can mean progress is SLOW.
It can also lead to a very serious and compulsive condition known as MGS “midnight google scroll” for dog training answers and that’s not fun for anyone!
There’s no need for the MGS when you can do a quick search for answers in the Canine Connection members portal or jump in the group & get your question answered.
But more than that, the CC is about feeling part of a community of pet parents that have your back. Because training can feel lonely sometimes and we are always better together
You can either search for something specific (e.g. “counter surfing”) or you can work with your dog using one of our connection pillars that you see below.
Canine Connection is your complete guide to training your dog, no matter what it is you are working on…from focus, to recall, to trick training, to barking, to overexcitement, to separation anxiety. The list is endless!
We start by identifying where you are on the “Connection Roadmap” (you can do this in your welcome call with Holly if you want!) & then it’s just a case of making your individualised training plan to propel you forward!
All our training is designed to be taken at yours (and your dog’s) pace, so you can practice the training stress-free and ask for any support you need before moving on.
Instant access to the CC Membership Hub where you will see all your training resources & will receive a new resource each week
Live group coaching every other week for real time training support. Jump on a call and get your questions answered (includes searchable replays – find your answer quickly if you’re in a rush!)!
Instant access to the private community: The Private Canine Connection Members Lounge, where you can touch base and get support from me , the Paws Up Team and your fellow members and share your training wins!
Free access to Paws Up Dogs paid specilaised workshops & discounts on other programmes
Regular Mini Challenges join in whenever you fancy an intensive 5 day training boost
PLUS immediate access to one of my most popular courses: Zen Dog: 30 Days To A Calmer Dog (retailing at £197 when sold as a standalone course) for as long as you remain a member
Canine Connection isn’t a traditional, boring dog training course
Instead it’s your complete blueprint to bringing up a happy, loving four-legged member of your family!
There are 8 key modules and there is no rush, just take them at your own pace.
You can practice the training games stress-free and then ask for any feedback you need from me before moving on
You can either search for something specific (e.g. “counter surfing”) or you can work with your dog using one of our connection pillars that you see below
Learn how to teach wonderful focus from your dog regardless of the situation! Think recall, lead walking, sports and more!
The ability to be calm and confident is such a strong basis for a happy dog that you can take anywhere. We work with noise sensitivity, reactivity, new places etc.
It’s all very well teaching your dog a skill, but it can be disappointing when it goes out of the window in the face of distraction. Learn how to get results even when there’s a bird/bike/squirrel/stranger etc.
Training should be fun…for both of you! We have so many awesome little games that you and your dog can play together to take your relationship to the next level
This section is all about understanding dog behaviour, our training mechanics & skills and also how to overcome frustration, motivation dips and more!
I am a certified dog trainer now and I love sharing my Connection Roadmap with other canine parents but this all started because of my own little rascal and the many challenges that he brought up for me.
This lovely lad was full of love but a real challenge to train. He was hyper 23 hours of the day, had severe separation anxiety, he stole everything within paw height, counter surfed, pulled on the lead, barked at other dogs, was distracted by everything in sight, mouthed HARD and was generally as mischievous as a sprite!
I took him to puppy classes, adolescent classes, had behaviourists in, googled every term imaginable and had MANY a sleepless night.
I came to realise though, that in some situations, we just didn’t understand each other, there was a break in the connection. And although he bounced around and wagged his tail whenever I came in the room it was more over-excitement than evidence of a trusting and secure bond.
The Connection Road Map that you’ll learn in Canine Connection turned that around and now we have a wonderful partnership that I hope will continue for many years to come.
‘When it comes to dog training the mistake a lot of people make is to think it will be cheaper to just pick up some tips on YouTube or to wait and hope that their dog becomes more confident, learns to focus or grows out of their more challenging behaviours over time.
As we know, the problem with the YouTube search is that there are a million different solutions and none are suggested with YOUR dog in mind.
The problem with waiting for your dog to “grow out of it” or “grow into it” is that a) they might not and b) you both suffer in the meantime.
As you’ll know from the challenge, at Paws Up Dogs we teach skills based on building your connection with your dog. This is magical because they then WANT to listen to you, and it is no longer a fight. You get to build a rock solid life-long bond that is built on FUN!
And you can have access to all that great training know how for just £27/month, or pay in full and save!
That’s less than £1 a day and about a tenth the cost of a single behavioural consult. For training that you can access every, single day!
Canine Connection gets better and better each month and so the price goes up each time we open the doors (we are only open for new members a couple of times a year) but you’ll lock in this price now forever. For as long as you remain a member in good standing, the price will never increase for you.
We believe in Canine Connection and the results our training can get for you and your dog. So, if it any point you decided the CC isn’t for you just email our support team, let us know you want to cancel & we’ll process it right away. For annual members we’ll refund you the remaining months at no cost.

Here are the answers to some common questions
Time is precious! Fortunately each of the training games are designed to be played for under 2 mins a day. You also have access to the course for as long as it exists (hopefully a very long time) so can work through it at your leisure.
The great thing about the CC is that it offers “real life training”. Rather than just teaching “sit”, “down”, “stay” like a lot of classes do, Canine Connection is designed to tackle some of those real-life struggles and to set your dog up for success. You also get access to personalised training on the live coaching calls and in the members group so we can offer solutions to the difficulties you might be having with your dog, when you need them
The members’ community is a wonderful place full of like-minded individuals who will be going through similar stages with their dogs as you are. There’s nothing like the support of someone else in the trenches!
I have complete faith that the skills you will learn in Canine Connection will help you and your dog. That is why we take the risk of investing away. Decide it’s not for you at any point and we will cancel your membership no questions asked.
We use a variety of different dogs in our training game demos, showing examples of dogs learning things for the first time, or breaking a skill down into tiny components. The training games are so simple to teach that you will see some easy wins with your dog in no time, just like you did in the challenge!
We know everyone learns differently. That’s why our training games have both a video component and also a pdf written success ladder, to help you learn and progress the skills. You can also ask your questions in written format via the members group
Yes! I’m in the Facebook group every, single week day answering your questions. You can also speak to me directly on one of our group coaching calls
Please don’t worry! We provide. a video walk through of the members portal to show you around. Everything is designed to be very intuitive so that you can find things easily and if you get stuck you can always ask for help!
Believe it or not I used to HATE being on video…so I get it! No is the answer. You don’t have to share your videos. I recommend you film your training so you can see where to make changes, but you only share what you want to
I can’t vouch for other training programmes, but put simply, Canine Connection shows you exactly how to achieve wonderful results with your dog training and a life-long bond without the need for any special equipment, unkind or aversive methods or months of stress. We care about you and your dog and want to be there for you every step of the way
There’s nothing more powerful than being in an environment with other people who are doing the same thing.. because all it takes is one idea to spark the “breakthrough”. It’s never too late to start.
