Dog Training

We found Nicole very caring and committed to our dog’s welfare. She worked extremely hard with her and us through a difficult time. Always kept us informed and sent lots of photos and videos. Julie and Ian More...

Dog Training

I cannot speak highly enough of Nichole and K-9 Balance Training & Behaviour - within a few minutes of meeting she had got the measure of our boisterous lab, Max, and had him walking to heal and eating out of her hand (literally) - amazing. Nichole certainly knows her stuff and understands how to get the best out of our K9 friends.

She has left us after a greatly extended hour booking feeling much more confident on how to control Max and make his training so much fun.

We will certainly continue to use her excellent services and have no hesitation in recommending her services to other dog owners. Great service and great value for money.

What lovely feedback - Thank you, Peter. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you, Patricia and Max today. Max certainly learned a lot in his first session, and was a delight to teach. I look forward to watching (and helping) him progress further.

Dog Training

I was worried at first letting someone in to help but, I’m so glad I did. Lola instantly loved the treats available and quickly learnt she had to do what was asked in order to get a reward. Very friendly, very helpful and gave us lots of useful tips and showed us what we needed to do. Can’t wait to try them out and be in contact again soon to arrange another visit. Thank you so much for helping us. More...

Thank you Rebecca, you are very welcome - it was a pleasure to come out to work with you all. Lola is a delight and once she learns you are now back in charge, she will grow in confidence outside and you will be able to enjoy your walks again :) I look forward to coming back to see how you are getting on.

Q&As

What I love most is watching the changes in both dogs and their owners as they grow in confidence during their training. I enjoy providing the tools for dog owners to train their dog themselves and create a fantastic partnership.

I spend all of my spare time with my animals (over 100), and decided to make it into a career I enjoy more than anything in the world. I enjoy the flexible working and different dog cases every day - each one different and individual.

I will work with you on a 1-1 basis, whether your dog is boarding or remote/ on-site training. Each session will be specifically designed for you and your individual dog and will be easy to understand, so that you can continue the training at home.
I have three resident dogs the all clients' dogs will interact with - according to their training level.
We have access to a private training ground and vast local countryside, alongside a large, fenced back garden.

Once a client, you will have direct access to ongoing support should you need it - and can always rebook follow-up sessions as required. Existing/ Past clients will have priority over new cases.

All behaviourist clients will be provided with a written Behaviour Modification Plan for their individual dog. This can be amended throughout the process, as required.

I am happy to provide remote services if required. This can either be via videos on Whatsapp, Zoom/ Teams calls, and/or via the old-fashioned telephone.

I tend to work on a 1-1 basis anyway, but I will not currently be entering people's homes unless there is an urgent welfare concern. All training will take place either remotely, 1-1 outside, or on a Board & Train basis.

Science-based Behaviourist & Trainer

If your dog needs some full-time behaviour modification, but you don't have the time he needs to address the issue 100%, this can set the process back to square one, and even make it worse.

Behavioural Boarding gives you the option to let me do the bulk of the work for you; knowing that your dog will be part of a warm and loving home whilst training

Puppy - Adolescent - Adult

All breeds welcome

If your dog needs some general training, but you don't have the time he needs to address this 100%, this can set any process back to square one, and even create behavioural problems later on, due to inconsistency and confusion.

The Board & Train service gives you the option to let me do the bulk of the work for you; knowing that your dog will be part of a warm and loving home whilst training.

Before any dog returns home, you are invited to a training session to learn and understand the commands and 'rules' to follow.

It is vital that owners understand you must continue to put the work in once your dog returns to you.

If you are looking for a comprehensive, graduated plan to train your puppy to perfection, get in touch. We will cover everything your little one needs to learn to get started in his new world.

08:00 - 11:30/ 12:30 - 16:00, on a day to suit you

1-2-1 Training based on your dog's individual needs and Behaviour Modification Plan, formed following their Initial Assessment. This is a fluid plan, and can be amended throughout the training process.

In-house Behaviour Training - Full Day
08:00 - 16:00, on a day to suit you

1-2-1 Training based on your dog's individual needs and Behaviour Modification Plan, formed following their Initial Assessment. This is a fluid plan, and can be amended throughout the training process.

If you are in the difficult situation where you are unable to provide a secure, happy home for your dog for a short period, such as moving house, family illness, bereavement, extended holiday, etc then Foster Boarding may be what you are looking for, as an alternative to rehoming or kennelling the dog.

Please contact me to discuss your requirements, and if I have the room and can cater for your dog, I will happily do so.

During their stay, your dog will be treated as part of the family and so will join in training/ exercising activities, whether at home, in the countryside or private land.

Carefully structured training sessions around all social elements

If you would like to understand more on how your dog thinks, and 'WHY does he do that???' please get in touch for a 30 minute training session just for YOU!

Find out how to satisfy his deeply-rooted needs, which are largely dependent on breed and individual character.

Make sure you are meeting his needs in terms of exercise and enrichment - and learn how to extend what you are already doing to give your dog their best life!
