I have been using Nikki as my dog walker for just over a year now and she is the best! Mac absolutely loves her and especially the homemade treats she brings sometimes! Nikki is very patient with Mac and I have noticed great improvements from the moment he started walking with her, as he is now calmer around other dogs and more responsive (Nikki also does dog training which clearly shows). Nikki always does what's best for Mac and if it's pouring down with rain or too hot outside, she'll still say indoors with him to have a play and some company instead of getting drenched or too hot outside. I wouldn't do without her and highly recommend her! More...

Nikki is fantastic at taking our small dog for walks. She comes 4 times a week and is great at dealing with our little one. She gives her all the attention she needs, tops up her water and gives her any medicine she might need. We recommend her very highly! More...

I have been using Nikki to help me with my little rescue dog .
My little dog just needed some basic training , however he is very nervous and becomes very anxious in certain situations . Nikki has explained what is known as desensitization training for these situations and has also explained to me the importance of the Positive Reinforcement method she is trained in using . Highly recommended and knowledgeable . More...

I contacted Nikki in regards to her dog walking and pet sitting services for our new Cockapoo puppy . She was helpful and very knowledgeable. As first time dog owners we had decided to consider puppy training classes , however it soon become apparent that Nikki was highly qualified to help us train our puppy as well . Last night we had our second training session with her ( we have signed up for the 5 sessions ) both myself and my partner are delighted with the progress that our puppy is already making , and we feel that we have made an excellent choice in asking Nikki to train and walk our puppy .Nikki is also very helpful and does not mind you contacting her at anytime to offer advice . Highly recommended . More...

I can’t recommend Nikki highly enough. Our dogs love her and she quickly gained the confidence of our rescue.
She knows exactly what she’s doing and she’s established very clear routines with our dogs. Nikki also lets us know if she spots a problem with one of them (I.e limping or don’t seem themselves) and it’s really reassuring to know she’s looking after them fully.
She’s been walking our dogs for over 6 months and we’re so pleased we found her. Very reliable and highly recommended :)

I contacted Nikkis Canine Capers at short notice for the pet sitting service They were quick to respond and couldn't have been more helpful. You can expect a professional, reliable service,flexibility around your and your pets needs at affordable prices. Rachel (nikkis colleague) was trustworthy and friendly and immediately put my mind at ease. she even sent some reassuring texts and photos of my cat while I was away - a lovely touch. Highly recommend. Will definitely be using them again.

Q&As

The most rewarding part of this job is taking out dogs for owners that cannot manage to walk their own dogs due to health issues. I find these walks rewarding as without my help many customers might have to consider giving up their beloved pets. The second most rewarding part of this job is when you go in to the house to feed or walk them, and see their happy fur faces looking up at you.
On the training and behaviour work it is always a pleasure to work with puppys , however to see older dogs who have behaviour problems overcome this is also a rewarding challenge .

My inspiration for my Dog and Puppy Training business developed solely through the setting up of my Dog Walking business . I was certainly surprised to how many owners were having both training and behaviour problems with their dogs , as my aim was to provide a professional dog walking service to Newmarket , I decided to train as a trainer and behaviourist so that I could give a more professional service to my clients.

I am an accredited fully registered and approved Dog Trainer and Behaviourist who has spent many years of training Canine Behaviour along with up to date training methods . I have references which are available on request along with all my diplomas . I offer a free consultation so you can hear and see what I have to offer with no obligation to use my services further, if you are not happy with my standard of expertise .
I only use Positive Reinforcement or Reward based training methods which work to train your dog by rewarding behaviour you like, and ignoring the behaviour you do not like . Treats Praise and toys are the recommended rewards . If you reward your dog for good behaviour , its more likely to repeat this good behaviour as in general dogs do like to please.
If you are patient and consistent in training your dog, using Reward Based training methods the dog will soon learn that good things happen when he does good things . Punishment and dominance training methods are not an effective way to train dogs and can lead to behaviour problems developing .
