Client Testimonials

Our family adopted an 8 week old puppy back in June. We loved him so much, and he has been a great addition to our family but he was a real handful in the beginning. We struggled with some of his behaviours. A friend of ours suggested we call Nick. So glad that we did!
Nick was awesome right from the start. He was kind and patient but firm with Zeppelin. He was patient with us as well. He helped us to understand the behaviours, how to correct them and armed us with the tools we would need going forward. We now have an amazing dog that is calm, super friendly, confident and very well behaved. On walks he doesn’t bark or even bother with other dogs he just keeps on walking at our side. Thanks Nick! People can’t believe he is 5 month old puppy when they see how well behaved he is.

The Griesinger Family

We were having some issues with our boxer Bowser to the point where we needed help as he was getting bigger and stronger and harder to manage. We called Nick and he came out and met with us and explained the program in detail and told us that he could help us.

With Nick’s guidance and methods we started to see quick results with Bowser. He became much more obedient and we were able to solve the issues we were having with him. After the eight weeks with Nick we can honestly say we have a much better and well rounded dog who is very obedient. We are now much happier and we have become even closer to our dog and he is now eager to please and thanks to Nick we have the tools and methods to continue his progress for years to come.

Sue, Andy and Bowser
