Client Testimonials

I adopted Charlie from the Humane Society in October of 2012. Charlie was a stray that they picked up and had for adoption. Soon after, I found out that he had some aggression issues. Walking Charlie was more of a chore than an enjoyment. Charlie would lunge at bike, strollers, people walking, motorcycles, basically anything that moved. However, he was really bad with other dogs. Charlie has seen 2 other trainers previously with me and although they helped with the obedience, they were unable to have success with his aggression. I found Nick’s website and sent him an email. Since working with Nick, Charlie no longer has issues with bikes, people walking, strollers, etc. We are still currently working on the issue with other dogs, however he is coming along great. Just the other day, we were able to have Charlie walk side by side with a German Sheppard with Nick’s assistance and I’ve never been more proud of him. The difference in Charlie is amazing and I never thought it would happen. Charlie is happier, and more relaxed now. I am forever grateful. I was almost to the point of giving up on Charlie and accepting that this is how it was going to be, but Nick showed me he is capable of this and I will continue to work with Charlie. I would recommend (and already have) Nick to all my friends and family currently looking for a trainer. Nick takes the time to tell you WHY your dog is doing what they are doing instead of just telling you how to correct it. A lot of it seems like common sense, but I never realized it or thought of it until he said it. Thank you so much Nick! I have gained the confidence and skills to deal with Charlie thanks to you.

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
