Nick Wilson is a qualified Canine Behaviourist and Dog Trainer. Nick has a diploma in the Principles of Canine Behaviour from Massey University and is an ex Police Dog Handler who specialises in dog behaviour problems and dog training.

A Consultation with Nick can improve the relationship you have with your dog by addressing the underlying causes of the behaviour issues. This results in a more balanced and content dog. Nick has completed over 200 consultations.

Is your dog destructive, fearful, jumping up on visitors, aggressive towards other dogs, showing signs of separation anxiety or experiencing toileting issues? Does your dog pull on the lead, ignore you when you call him or does your dog require obedience training? Are you expecting a baby and worrying about how your dog will react? Whether you have a toy dog, large dog, mixed breed or pedigree, Nick is able to assist with functional modern day dog behaviour and training techniques that will ensure you get the best out of your dog or puppy.

Nick comes to you as he likes to assess your dog in the home environment. He is available for consultations during week days, week nights and on weekends.

Based in New Plymouth, New Zealand - Nick is also available for Skype consultations regardless of your location.

Nicks other sevices include One on One Obedience Training and Group Socialisation Sessions. He also offers In House Dog Minding. Are you going away for a few nights and want to leave your dog at home in familiar surroundings. Nick will feed, water and exercise your dog for you.

What people say about me

Nick Wilson was recommended to us as an experienced and professional dog handler and trainer. We have not been disappointed.

We had found our young female German Shepherd a sprightly and somewhat exuberant handful. Nick's experience with this breed as a former Police dog handler has been outstanding. He's quickly, firmly and pleasantly given us a solid framework within which to bring the dog into line, and this has enriched our bond with both a family pet and a security asset.

We are more than happy to recommend Nick's skills, knowledge and superb handling abilities to anyone with dog management concerns.
