"Thanks Nick. Poppy's training with you was a very rewarding experience for all! We are thrilled with how much she has progressed especially considering that Bouviers are slow to mature. Your expertise and love of dogs shows and Poppy picked that up instantly".

"I approached Nick to see if he could help me with not only obedience, but also show training for my 3 month old Pug puppy. He had a very calm and professional approach with both myself and my dog. Nick is very skilled and experienced with dog behaviour and management and answered any questions I had with knowledge and confidence, while quickly gaining the respect of my dog when working with her. It was great working with Nick, we had a lot of fun and I would highly recommend his guidance and understanding when working with any aspect of dog training or management".

"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".

"When we re-homed 'Lily' a one year old German Shepherd with little training but a great temperament in 2014, Nick was the first person I spoke to given his previous experience as a police dog handler and dog behaviourist.
Nick visited our home address and discussed with the family what we wanted to achieve with Lily. Nick then spent time with Lily in her new environment where he was able to identify what training work was required.
Over several training sessions and practice in between, Lily learned basic and important commands such as sit, down, stay and come. We also worked with Lily on a halti collar and she is no longer a challenge to walk or run with.
Nick was great to work with and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help in any aspect of dog training."

"When my wife and I decided we wanted a dog to join our family I knew selecting the right animal in terms of its temperament was crucial given we had a young child.
Nick helped us select our puppy (Zeek) from the litter and then provided training (to both us and the dog!) and general advice to ensure we developed an appropriate relationship and got the best possible outcomes. I have no doubt that Nick's input, training and advice played a major part in the amazing success Zeek has been.
I would highly recommend Nick in regards to anyone who wants to get the best out of their dog."
