I have no words to explain how amazing Nikki has been with my two boys Charlie and Mr Miyagi. Charlie needed help when he saw other dogs and Miyagi was a very nervous dog. The change in the them has been amazing, and the confidence Miyagi now has is unbelievable. He bonded with Nikki straight away and he is a very happy boy! I felt so safe knowing my boys were in the best hands, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nikki to anyone, thank you so much for everything, you are an angel ❤️ xxx More...

Positive Paws was recommended to me by a friend and what a great recommendation it was. We were new to dog ownership so the learning curve has been pretty steep. We met Nikki for our first walk in the park and completed both positive paws and practical paws classes which not only has taught our pup lots but it’s helped us be confident owners too. What I love about the sessions is that the groups are not too big so the learning can be tailored to your dogs needs. Nikki is always at the end of the phone too for any queries that arise which is a huge benefit. I highly recommend getting in touch if you need any sort of training help with your pup. More...

We had never had a dog walker until Nikki last year & we are so glad we met & use Nikki once a week. Our two dogs love seeing her and get excited when the doorbell goes as they know it’s her. Having someone once a week has really helped both dogs with different kinds of anxiety. We love receiving photos whilst they are on their walks too! We have also used Positive Paws for different training classes which have been great, flexible, knowledgable & reasonably priced. Thank you so much for walking, loving and looking after our babies.

Reggie and I both think Nikki is great. Very patient and understanding and is just as great at training humans as she is at training dogs! !! I have seen such an improvement in Reggie since we both started with Nikki and are very much looking forward to the next stage in his training . Thank you soooo much More...

We have been using Positive Paws (Nicki) services for 3-4 weeks and my dog Jack has changed so much for the better. I was finding it hard to train my jack Russell myself despite training my previous Staff dog before fine, but Nicki gave me so many tips and now jack is off lead walking. Thank you �

Nikki is excellent. She came to the house to visit Bertie to meet us which was really helpful. She is patient and her classes well-structured. We now feel that Bertie is a well behaved puppy with lots of potential thanks to Nikki at Positive Paws...it all seemed so overwhelming before! She has not only helped us with the fundamentals but also given us the tools to continue with confidence. Thank you, Nikki! More...

We did the 6 week puppy training and had our 1:1 today and Polly has been making great progress would def recommend Nikki she is so lovely and great with the dogs I was worried as Polly is 1 so I thought getting a bit old but Nikki really reassured me and has given me some fab pointers to continue our training - I will definitely be booking on to the next improver classes and more 1:1's if I start struggling!

Nicki is superb we are thrilled with JJ's progress. Nicki has given us all the advice we needed to train JJ at home with issues such as barking at people whilst walking and visitors at the door and getting him to go to his bed. We now have a well behaved boy who is happy to do as we tell him and he is much calmer and more well behaved. Nicki is brilliant she is so calm, reassuring and patient. Nicki has made a massive difference to our daily lives and we couldn't be happier. JJ loves her.
Thank you so much. We now have the tools needed to implement the training at home.

We've just completed our 6 week puppy training course with Nikki. We are absolutely delighted in the staggering progress that Ollie has made over the sessions! Nikki is positive, patient and makes the training exciting and suitable for each individual dog! Ollie loves Nikki and her methods are so clearly explained and work so well! She has given us all the tools we need to work with Ollie at home. We will certainly be back for more 'improvers' sessions with Nikki and Positive Paws! I would recommend Nikki to anyone who has a new puppy or even an older dog who needs support!
Thank you so very much Nikki from
Becky Andy and Ollie!

Nikki is a lovely trainer who goes out of her way to help, whatever the problem is. She has spent lots of time and patience with my little Jack Russel puppy and I cannot believe the change in her after just a single 1:1 session!

One of the best trainers I have worked with. The difference in my rescue dogs behaviour and our attachment to each other has been quite remarkable in only 6 weeks. Thoroughly recommend!!!

Thank you Nikki for helping us get Baxter to be the well behaved pup he was pretending not to want to be 8 weeks ago. The common sense approach, concentrating on what was important to us and how we want to live with Baxter made the classes a pleasure to attend, and we both now feel that we have the foundations to build upon and to most importantly enjoy having him in our lives. All our friends and family can't believe how much he has learnt during the few short weeks and we now have the continuing work to do, but feel well prepared and able to do so. Please offer stage two!

My dog was 6yrs old when Positive Paws helped him overcome his fear of other dogs, and she worked wonders with him in weeks. Enlisted her for training with a next puppy and she taught our puppy and us valuable skills and techniques for a well rounded puppy and happy family. More...

Nikki is a great trainer . My puppy Archie loved her and thoroughly enjoyed his puppy classes . I was delighted with Archie's progress and it was so rewarding to see his progress. She has a great rapport with the pups and is highly skilled and professional . Her groups are warm and friendly and I will definitely be booking further classes with Nikki . More...

Q&As

I love seeing the bond between owner and dog grow as the training starts to show positive results. A happy owner = a happy dog and that is what Positive Paws aspires to.

My own dog Luna and training her from an 8 week old puppy.

I'm friendly and able to communicate with all different types of people. If something isn't working for you and your dog then lets keep trying new things until we see the results we want.
