*Teach your dog to automatically wait for permission to go out a door (no more running out of the crate, house or car!) 
*Learning to correct your dog for behaviors you don’t want in a way that won’t shut them down and actually gets them more enthusiastic about what they should be doing.
*A dog that can make better choices on their own, so they need less micromanaging and are more fun to live with!

Wrigley used to pull and couldn’t calm down in places.  Here he is relaxing in a store on his own.  What a good boy!

Miss Rio took a field trip riding in the car from my house to my parents.  We took a stroll to the car to look for something and the she did door trick going back into the house.  Good job Miss Rio!


“I did a board and train with Nicole: I took a crazy, active and not well behaved little boxer. I got back a well mannered and well behaved boxer. My grandson could hardly take Brandi on walks or out for bathroom time because of the pulling and jumping. Now he is the first to jump up and off to take her out.

I read on Nicole’s website that she also did off leash training. I thought that would be great but never dreamed it could happen. Brandi always played catch me if you can when an opening was there. Now we can go on walks, play ball and go to a friend’s house with no leash.

Amazing is not a big enough word to describe what Nicole did with my baby. From first visit till now Nicole is ready to help. Five star plus is what I would rate Nicole and her training”
