Dogs are my passion and after successfully selling 2 software/technology companies I am now fortunate to be able to do this full-time.

Started my career in the Dutch special forces studying dog behaviour for many years.
I worked predominantly with German & Belgian shepherds, training them from puppies until they were full trained attack/k9 dogs but also rehabilitating dogs with extreme aggression, anxiety etc

Over the past few years I have continued working with dogs in my spare time doing everything from 1-2-1 puppy training, to obedience & advanced guard dog training.

I strongly believe that issues with our dogs start with us as dog owners which is why my training is very much focused on training the owner rather and not just the dogs(s).

Own 2 german shepherds, Thor 3 years and Nala 9 months - both can be seen and Nala at 11 months is already at a pretty advanced stage of training.

I only take on a few dogs at a time so that I can build a tailored program around them, this means that I only have a few limited spaces left,. Get in touch now so that we can schedule a free intro call.

I am fluent in Dutch, English, German & Portuguese.
Full European drivers license + car

Nick is exceptional. He knows dogs and has complete control almost instantly, and not only that but he knows how to help the humans understand what is needed, as much as the dogs!

I had a very strong willed and excitable GSD puppy who would not respond to any commands unless it suited her! Within a session Nick had her obeying his every word both in and outdoors and she openly adored him and wanted nothing but to please!

He worked with both of us and she was instantly a different and more responsive dog, and I was able to be clearer with my intentions for her. He then worked with us for a few more sessions fine tuning and consolidating his work.

I am always nervous about about services over the internet, and with putting my dog into a strangers hands but Nick was completely reassuring and trustworthy from the word go. Would absolutely recommend.

Nick is a miracle worker! My dog barked at all dogs when we would go for a walk or to the park. She is 2 years old and has always been like this. We had one session with Nick and she was cured. It has been 2 weeks and I can affirm that she has actually changed. I can actually let her off the lead now in the park. I can hardly believe it. Worth every cent!

Nick is fantastic, in no time he had my out of control Bordie Collie teen under control and calm. after only 2 sessions i can now take him for walks, Sit & Stay. Nick really understands dogs and is a dog whiperer like i have never seen. not only training my dog, but me too. his approach is straight forward, directions clear and results are supurb. Neo loves his training with Nick as do I. highly recommended. Thank you Nick.

We needed Nick as we had just taken on a rescue from Battersea dogs home. Lovely girl, great on being with people but not so great round other dogs or so we thought. Nick came it the 1st session and we had a good talk about what we wanted to achieve. 1st walk out was that night and he showed us that we were part of the problem and therefore will be part of the solution. Met a coiple of dog walkers and where she would normally pull towards the other dog in what we thought was an aggressive manor Nick showed us she was over excited. He showed us in a very short period to she and read this behaviour. We put the work in over a week after Nick gave us our homework. Met up for the 2nd session and this was even more effective for us and Truffles with 2 sessions Nick had turned us into better owners and Truffles a more obedient pet with everything to build our relationship. Straight talking person and very knowledgable. Great to talk to and gain a great understanding of how to move forward. Would not hesitate to recommend Nick. Sorry to go on but proper nice guy doing a great job.
Thank you Nick.

Awesome dog trainer! Completely changed both our dogs their behavior in 6 sessions.
You pay for what you get, Nick really understands dogs - not just a trainer. Confident that he can train any dog now matter how big or difficult the job might be. We will recommend him to everyone we know that has dogs. Thanks Nick, you have done an amazing job!

We hired Nick because of his great references.
After 5 private sessions Nick trained our Rhodesian Ridgeback pup general obedience, great recall and an all around well behaved and socialized dog.
Nick also knows how to teach you to be a better dog owner. Recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced dog trainer.

My husband and I hired Nick to train our german shepherd Zara. We adopted her from someone that had beaten and maltreated/malnourished her for almost 2 years. No basic commands, bad on and off the lead, aggressive and she had bitten several people including Nick in the first consultation. After only 2 extensive sessions we noticed a massive change in her behavior, walking well on the lead, better recall and hardly any aggression. Nick was able to hug her indoors, taught her discipline, set boundaries etc
5 sessions later and we have a “new” dog who we can let off the lead and finally have people over again at home.
Definitely recommend Nick, not just a dog trainer but someone who actually has a very in-depth understanding on dog behavior. Thanks!

after speaking with nick for 15 minutes on the phone I had a good feeling about him and his work. He was extremely friendly and professional and had so much patience when meeting my dog for the first time even when he was displaying difficult behaviour, I am looking forward to our upcoming sessions and high recommend nick no matter how big or small the issues you are facing with your dog nick will be able to help! :)
