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.

After having tried another dog trainer and gotten nowhere I really hesitated to try working with someone else. I was so pleasantly surprised and impressed with Nick and the results that he got from our puppy. He really cares about the dogs and understands how they think and how to get the most from them. He sets up realistic goals and teaches the owners how to use his training in every day situations and they have made the biggest difference to the way that we feel when we are with our dog. We gave Nick a puppy that we were having a lot of trouble with and we picked up a dog that was so well behaved and pleasant to be around. He’s a completely different dog….its incredible that Nick was able to achieve this in a few weeks! We are enjoying and loving every second with our dog and owe this completely to the time that he spent with Nick. Nick truly is wonderful and was a real life saver for us :)

If you are hesitating about whether to have your dog trained by Nick, the answer is simple: just do it. The results are phenomenal! My dog Luna is a 3-year-old Labrador who is very reactive and nervous. During walks, she used to lunge and bark excessively at other dogs, cars, trucks, skateboards, school buses, motorcycles—you name it. I've even memorized my neighborhood's schedule to avoid encountering these triggers. I dreaded walking her because it was not only stressful for me but also for her. Additionally, she weighs 60 pounds and is a strong puller. I've tried front harnesses, back harnesses, gentle leaders, but nothing worked. She often walked me instead of the other way around. Luna was also fearful at home, only trusting me, my brothers, and my dad. Strangely, she was afraid of my mom, which led to her biting my mom several times. My mom gave me an ultimatum: either Luna goes to a shelter or sees a dog behaviorist to get better. Giving her up was not an option as I love my dog with all my heart, but I also wanted a peaceful home dynamic. Both my mom and Luna deserve to feel safe and comfortable. I had previously seen three trainers. One used a shock collar for "discipline," another used hotdogs to distract her, and the third yelled at her. Clearly, none of these methods worked and only made her condition worse. I decided to take the plunge and reach out to Nick. We started with a consultation to discuss our expectations and assess Luna. During the consultation, he took the time to answer all my questions and educate me about Luna's body language. I didn't realize that my dog was giving me signs of discomfort in certain situations. With this new information, I decided that the best option was to send Luna for the 3-week kennel training. Nick kept me updated on Luna's progress, sending pictures and videos. I could see that Luna had bonded with him and was genuinely happy, which put me at ease. During the transfer lesson, Nick took the time to teach my brother and me how to communicate with Luna and how to properly walk her. Luna trusted Nick, and I could see their interactions; to me, that's a true "leader." When we went home, Luna was a completely different dog. She was confident and no longer barked at school buses during our walks, which was a huge success. Now, she even walks up to my mom to be petted in the morning. He even emails me from time to time to ask how Luna is doing. He truly cares about the job he does. I can't thank Nick enough for everything he has done. Luna is truly happy, our family is at peace, our walks are so much more enjoyable, and I can walk her at any time of the day. That's all I could ask for.

If you are hesitating in working with Nick, maybe I can help you make what is ultimately a really big decision easier. I booked a consultation with Nick for my 1.5 year old Kangal x Caucasian Shepherd girl. Within 15 minutes I knew I would be working with Nick in the future. The consultation let me know that my girl was in good hands and she would make strides in her training to make both our lives easier. After 3 weeks with Nick in the board and train program, I had tons of questions which were answered in both the follow up sessions and online. Already my dog and I live a better life because of the foundation we have built. I feel like I myself have become an amateur dog trainer in what Nick has taught me. I have the tools and confidence now to continue working with my dog. I look forward to doing some advanced training with Nick in the future and so does my girl.

Our experience with Nick could not have been more positive. Firstly, Nick is a tremendous person. Second, he really understands how to make his message stick while teaching us how to train our two dogs. Other trainers base their methods on rewarding your dog with treats. Nick gets to the psychology of the dog, helping you understand what dogs need from their families, and how to make your dog feel safe when with you. That’s the key. We couldn’t recommend Nick more.

Can’t recommend enough!!!! I sent my 3 y/o boxer (Tucker) for a 3 week board and train with Nick and I could not believe the results when I got him back. I can finally enjoy my walks with my dog, I am not worried about him running around and barking when people knock on my door. He was always soooo excited/distracted by everything. He had no impulse control. He can finally relax and rely on my commands to know what is expected of him. The work still has to be put in at home to maintain the work Nick did but the rules are so clear now. I am forever grateful that Nick allowed me to have this peaceful and trusting relationship with my dog.

We just finished dog obedience classes with Nick. It is difficult to put into a few words the positive and exceptional experience we had with Nick. We are a couple in our 50s with an 18 year old boy and Kobe is our first dog ever. We took puppy pre school and obedience classes with Nick from family K9 dog training. Firstly, Nick has an undeniable understanding of canine psychology, he has a way of explaining each technique to us with simplicity and clarity and with each practice the results were there. Kobe is a goldendoodle who is anxious and reactive towards other dogs. We were discouraged at times because we do a lot of outdoor sports and each time we became nervous about our dog's reaction. With the training, Nick was able to give us the confidence and teaching necessary to better understand Kobe's behavior and manage his reactivity. Throughout the training there was a feeling of care, support and we were guided with good techniques to improve Kobe's behavior. Our meetings with Nick were always friendly, informative and everything took place with a mixture of humor, which calmed our nervousness. I recommend Nick to anyone looking for a qualified trainer who is an expert in his field and who provides excellent personalized support to his clients! Today, thanks to our training, we are able to help Kobe manage his nervousness and reactivity, which makes our outings more enjoyable! A big thank you to Nick for everything! Ann and Patrick

Nick is simply excellent. We came to him nervous and anxious after our 2yo Bernese Roxy began to show some signs of situational aggression. At the same time we wanted to work on other things - walking, place, leaving food etc. Training was as much, if not more, for us. Nick not only reassured us that Roxy is an amazing dog, but that she is extremely trainable and a pleasure to work with. He was patient, kind, direct and probably the best trainer for our dog. He got right on her level and she adores him. Highly highly recommend!!!
