Chris H Yorktown Heights, Westchester, New York | May 14 2021
When our rescue dog began to show signs of aggression in the house we were unsure of what to do. We wanted to help him and make him feel comfortable in our home, while also keeping our family safe. Unsure where to turn, we reached out to Nicole and have been working with her for close to a year now. The progress our dog has made (as well as our other two dogs who we didn't initially think needed that much training) has been priceless. Simply put, Nicole's approach to training has been exactly what we had hoped for. She is well versed in a variety of training exercises because all dogs are different and some respond better to certain things. When we first began training with our dog Copper he was terrified to even be outside. He was hypersensitive to certain noises, specifically large passing trucks and horns. He would cower at the back door outside, or if he heard one of these noises while in the house, would have a barking fit out of fear. Working with Nicole has allowed him to flourish and while he still has some work to do, he no longer barks at these noises and loves to stay outside and play. The exercises and training Nicole teaches are simple enough for anyone to handle as long as you are committed to helping your dog. She is extremely professional, quick to respond to any questions, and makes herself available to fit your schedule. She will come to your home or a neutral site such as a park. I would recommend Nicole to anyone who is having any difficulty with your dog, from a larger issue like we were having, to just trying to get your dog to listen to you. Nicole's passion for training is evident, and she can help you get to where you want to with your dog. Permalink

Marc did an exceptional job training us on how to speak Zeke's language. In a matter of minutes Zeke had mastered the rules of engagement. We are working on our part equally as well. We are confident that Zeke will continue to grow and develop his behavioral modifications. Permalink

Kevin is by far the best Dog Trainer ever! We wish we found him before we wasted so much time and money on the two we had before him! Our dog, Cody , is a rescue-- and is 2 1/2 yrs old -- is everything we wanted in a dog-- except has some major issues--that's why we are so grateful for Kevin--he is very calm, very patient, very kind and has this wonderful energy that we felt [ and so did Cody ] the minute he comes in the room. Kevin knows what he is talking about-- and it works--he is a great listener too--we see improvement in Cody because of Kevin's love and understanding of dogs. We feel, and so does Cody, that he is a member of her forever family too ! Lora & Danny Permalink

Kim D Milltown, New Jersey | May 12 2021
After one session, we have already seen a change in our 2 yr old Pitt mix. She is a rescue that has many fears and anxieties. With a young child in the house, it was imperative to seek outside support. Keith is very patient and knowledgeable. We appreciate his guidance and support. I can already see confidence building in our son, too. We are looking forward to our next sessions. Thank you Keith! Permalink

Harley started the session with lots of barking and anxiety, but over the course of 3.5 hours we were equipped with the tools and homework to correct his behavior and saw results almost immediately. We are so excited to continue working with Diane and get our dog under control. Permalink

Diane was incredibly helpful figuring out what kind of behavior we had to correct with Bam. There's already improvement with him and he now knows when to correct himself after telling him once. Permalink
