We brought our Goldendoodle home 12 years ago with no idea how challenging the puppy stage can be. Nick came highly recommended and so we reached out and he was amazing! He was patient, knowledgeable and incredibly skilled. After spending 3 weeks in his care our puppy returned with all the skills needed for a seemless transition into our family. We had such a well behaved, happy and trustworthy 12 years with her. Fast forward to today, we are bringing home our new puppy and have already secured a spot in Nick’s program. Knowing he will be part of this puppy’s journey brings us confidence that we can enjoy this next chapter with our new addition without the concerns that come with a puppy! I highly recommend his services.

I have known Nick for about 5 years now and in that time, he has trained my 3 dogs and my family dog. Needless to say, I trust him wholeheartedly with dogs and I recommend him to everyone looking for a dog trainer. In 2019, I brought him my 1year old Frenchie and 5 year old German shepherd family dog. Neither of the dogs had any discipline, it was super hard to walk them, they had zero recall, the GSD loved to bark and runaway. Good dogs, just not easy to incorporate into our everyday lives. The GSD had been previously trained but it just didn’t stick. The Frenchie had an excessive amount of energy and he didn’t know where to direct it. The 2 went to the “Board and Train” and it was the best decision we had ever made. Both dogs came back fully trained and ready to work. Nick supported us through the transition and we ended up with amazing pets! In 2022, I adopted a 5yr old chihuahua who came from an abused home. He was terrified and extremely towards dogs (except the ones in the house). He would lunge to kill, he didn’t care how much bigger the other dog was. He didn’t even know his name. I sent him to the program, and now he can heel, come, place, leave it and most importantly, he knows his name! I’ll attach a video of him leaving a dog alone. The most recent one, she came back last week from training. She is a 8 month old cocker that has very low confidence and very high energy. We wanted her to speak the same language as my other 2 dogs as she was getting hard to manage. Now, everyone is on the same page, we go for pack walks comfortably, I can put everyone in a place, I can tell them to leave it and know that they will. My cocker looks to me when she’s scared instead of reacting. The dogs are all more relaxed because they trust that I will guide them, and that is thanks to Nick’s training. I have given him 4 dogs with completely different personalities and the results have all been amazing. He tailors his training to the dog and makes sure to give the human the right tools to follow through. Forever my dog trainer, 100% worth it!

An exceptional dog trainer indeed! We've had the pleasure of working with Nick for over 20 years, and his dedication has always shone through. Maintaining a strong relationship throughout the training process, he's helped shape our fur babies into well-mannered companions. Highly recommend his services for anyone seeking expert guidance and a lasting bond with their pets!

Our beloved golden retriever Rex has just finished his obedience training with Nick. We couldn't be more happy. Nick is the best trainer we've ever met. He explained each step with patience and passion. Rex enjoyed each session, and we saw the improvement from week to week. We strongly recommend Nick experience to people looking to have the dreaming dog.

We recently adopted a 2 year old dog from a rescue that had been taken from a hoarding situation where she had very limited exposure to the outside world. Ellie had no training whatsoever and was very apprehensive around new people and reactive with kids. She was also a challenge to walk because she would react to any dog that barked at her. We knew we needed help with her and chose to entrust the training with Nick after reading multiple reviews (thanks for those....so helpful!) and watching his educational videos. What a great decision. The consult with him enlightened us to why she was displaying the behaviours and what training she needed to help her feel safe and more confident. She spent 3 weeks in the in-kennel training while we were away on vacation and we came back to a huge transformation. When new people come to the house she greets them calmly and confidently. She heels like a pro on the leash and we are able to use the tools we were taught (yes, you have to be trained too :) to avoid confrontation with other dogs. Two days after we brought her home the grandkids came over and she was amazing with them. It is obvious that Nick is very committed to helping dog owners have the best possible life with their pet and appreciate being able to reach out to him down the road if we have any questions/concerns. It is without hesitation that we recommend Family K9 Dog Training.

I started training with Nick after having a few incidents with my 5 year old Aussie/border collie. After just the assessment, I could tell how knowledgeable Nick was and how well my dog responded right away. People told me my dog could no longer be trained being 5 years old but I knew they were wrong. We choose to do 6 training sessions one on one and after the first session, he was already learning and behaving better. I’ve never been able to walk him without having to walk very fast at his pace or without my arm extended. He would bark at dogs or people walking by along with lunging at cars. We have completed 4 training sessions and today I was able to push my daughter in the stroller and have Murphy walk right by my side for an entire walk, along with being able to walk pass people and dogs with no reaction. One person even asked if that was the same dog! I’m excited to see how far we will continue to get with not only walks but jumping on people when entering the house, barking at the window, and overall a calmer / happier dog. I am forever grateful to have taken the one on one sessions and learning myself how to handle my dog. I can see the benefits right away and can’t wait to continue training him. I highly recommend Nick to help with any age dog and breed.

There aren’t enough words to thank Nick in all the work and lessons he’s taught us and our 1yr old Odin. He is patient and takes the time to explain how we should approach situations to set ourselves up for success. I definitely feel a huge sense of relief knowing that we are now taking the right steps in giving a healthier quality life for Odin, all thanks to Nick. Nick - thank you for all that you do. I truly appreciate the time and effort you provided and look forward into keeping in touch for years to come!!

Nick delivers fantastic results and helps you develop a connected relationship with your dog! He is an incredible e-collar trainer (please don't try DIY e-collar training). I hired him for his six 1:1 training sessions plus the e-collar add-on and it changed my daily life for the better. Here's my story: My australian shepherd Heidi was rarely engaged with me and had developed violent aggressive behaviour towards dogs at age 2. She is the cutest ever, and sweet as pie when we're alone inside the house, but walking her caused my family and I so much discomfort stress that I was mentally preparing myself to give my dear friend away. Although I learned so much and felt great about my consultation with Nick, I couldn't afford to work with him at the time. It was obvious that Nick could help me, but I opted to meet with two cheaper trainers... only to waste my time and money. Eventually, I got the money together and took the leap! **It has been so, so worth it** My dog Heidi and I are living our fantasy. We are connected, happy and peaceful together. Instead of suffering through tense walks (or I should say pulls instead of walks) and tracking her down in the car after one of her runaways: now we walk on leash around the village for fun, and she comes back to me when I call her in from the field, even if she is on something's trail. I didn't think it was possible to feel so relaxed with my dog. I'm forever grateful ❤️ Note: I don't believe I would have reached my goals as quickly and easily without the e-collar add-on. And, please don't try to train your dog yourself on the e-collar; you can really mess up your relationship and your dog's personality.

There are many dog trainers out there but those like Nick and Family K9 are quite rare. We chose Family K9 almost 10 years ago for our first Cane Corse Zoe and she remained the reference to everyone that met her of an incredibly behaved dog. After we lost her in June we contemplated whether we ever embark on this journey again with another dog. What we knew without any doubt was that any other dog would have to be trained by Family K9 as we would rather sacrifice getting another dog before getting one that wasn’t trained by them. I’m am glad to say that we’ve decided to go forward with another Cane Corso and Kira has been the blessing we needed. We picked her up yesterday after what felt like the longest three weeks of our lives and the results are spectacular. We may sound biased after all these years but we truly cannot put in words what a difference it makes. Training any dog comes with a cost but after having trained our two dogs with Family K9 and witnessing the benefits first hand, we are convinced that it is an investment rather than a cost. What your dog will give your family back for many years after being trained by Family K9 is invaluable. Forever grateful.

Max, our 3.5-year-old, 70-pound golden doodle, is a gentle giant who's wonderful with kids and not at all aggressive. However, his needy behavior when people come over, his penchant for pulling during walks due to his incredible strength, and his selective hearing when it comes to commands without food were starting to pose some challenges. That's when we decided to seek the expertise of Max Dog Trainer Nick. After a three-week training program, Max returned as a completely transformed dog. While he's still very needy, we now have the tools to correct this behavior. Walking with him has become much more manageable, and when he gets hyper, we can put him in his designated "place." We've heard great things about Nick from friends who've used his services, and the hype is real! We're thrilled with Max's progress, though the real work is ongoing once you're back home. Nonetheless, Nick has armed us with all the right tools, and he's been incredibly responsive via email for any questions or concerns. We couldn't be happier with the results.
