“I love seeing the results that we get for people and their dogs!”

I have a balanced approach when it comes to working with dogs. As long as I can remember, I could be found with a dog and lead in hand. I have had a lifelong interest in the way dogs act, and have constantly wanted to bring the best out of every pet.  Read more about Chris >

“I am most interested in dog obedience.  I prefer a dog that is well behaved, rather than one that does tricks.”

With brilliantly practical advice, Nicki helps dog owners and our Obedience Classes develop skills that allow them to safely navigate their neighbourhood (loose leash walking, of course) and socialise with other dogs and people along the way.  Nicki’s top piece of advice for dog owners… Breathe and relax!  If you get frustrated while training, just stop for a while.  Dogs feel the tension and you’ll likely get better results when you’re calm.  Read more about Nicki >
