At about one year old Max had several behavioral issues including chewing on furniture. He is now a completly different dog after completing the basic and advanced classes. The most valuable skills Max and I learned are how to comunicate. He now knows what good behavior is and is all around a happier dog.
We will be forever grateful for all the amazing things Nick did with Tank. He made it possible for my mom to have more independence by training Tank to be the best dog he could be!
Nick is an awesome trainer! Gizmo, our Chorkie (Chihuahua/Yorkie), graduated from Puppy 1 Puppy 2 & the AKC Canine Good Citizen program with Nick as his trainer in each of them. Gizmo was an only child in our very quiet house so when we brought him to the first program, he was very shy. I also had doubts about whether toy breed dogs could actually be trained so I came to class very skeptical. Nick worked patiently as Gizmo dealt with his anxiety of being around strangers and other dogs. As Gizmo progressed, my faith in training a toy breed grew. Not only does Nick have a love for animals, but he also understands animal psychology and teaches using positive reinforcement. Nick spent just as much time educating us as parents so we would be able to continue the learned skills at home. He also helped educate us on canine nutrition and helped us select a healthy, good quality dog food. It is now 3 years later and Gizmo is still following commands and enjoying a great life! I would certainly recommend Nick to any and all people looking for dog training done via pure love.
Nick helped me a lot of ways I didn’t realize he was going to help me. He trained me how to handle the dog as much as he trained the dog. I now trust my dog to do off leash exercises. I know he will listen, and my trust in the dog and the dog’s obedience I can attribute to Nick’s influence.
