WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Amberlee & Maric
Nikki helped us teach Maric to sit, wait, and walk on a leash. We REALLY appreciated her help when Maric went through his mouthy puppy phase.
Liz & Ellie
We've taken many classes with Nikki ! She has helped me understand and work through all of my dog's individual needs. She is very positive, knowledgeable and experienced!
Kim & Maggie
Nikki set us up for success from day one. It was immediately apparent that she has extensive knowledge in dog behavior, a solid education in training, and years of experience. With Nikki's help, Maggie and I have fostered a trusting relationship that will last a lifetime.
