Satisfied Students!

Quotes I've gone to different trainers over the years for all of our dogs. I have to say Nicole is our favorite choice. She is very detailed in her instruction and always takes the time to help you get it right. At other places in the area, I've felt like I was rushed through. If I didn't get the exercise right, well that was that. Some trainers don't take the time after class to discuss things with you. I like that Nicole is always willing to help. It's also wonderful to find someone who my dog is enthusiastic to see when we get there. I can't count how many times I can't figure what I'm doing wrong and Nicole is right there telling me how to fix it. We've learned so much, she cares enough to help you get it right, and our dogs adore her!! Highly recommend! Quotes

Quotes I am so impressed with Nicole C. knowledge when it comes to training dogs and finding what the problem is and working with me on how to correct it. My dog was afraid of everything and very stubborn. Nicole had so much knowledge on how to correct the problem in a positive way that really made huge difference in my way of training and working with my dog. If you are having a dog problem at all i would recommend going through this training facility. Amazing that is all i can say. Quotes

Very Satisfied dog owner

Quotes I am very pleased with Nicole's training and boarding services. I left our (6 month old) German Sheperd for the weekend and have honestly seen an improvement upon our return. He has better walking manners, he is less reactive to other dogs, and most importantly he listens to the "Leave it" command. I am very pleased with the training and can honestly say it was money well spent. Quotes

Boarding and Training... (I highly recommend Nicole!)

Quotes We came to Focused Canine Academy for help with overexcited reactivity when seeing other dogs. Nicole has provided us with knowledge and tools to keep our pup relaxed and focused. She offers multiple techniques and helps determine the best method for your dog. Nicole is not only a great dog trainer but an awesome coach for humans too! She is very personable and provides feedback and advice to strengthen the communication between you and your dog. Training sessions were fun and never felt rushed. Highly reccomend! Quotes

Satisfied dog mom

Quotes Nicole is my daughter. She has trained my dogs (the Pit mix and Shizshu in the picture). She has always loved animals. She is an excellent trainer of dogs and horses. She has trained her dogs so well and others. Nicole has trained them to sit, roll over, stay, come, to get along with other dogs, to not jump on people, to wait, kennel up and more than I can name. She has trained her Arab/Quarter Horse mare. We got her when she was 2 yrs old and Nicole has trained her to bow, trail ride, bare back and so much more. Nicole has a special talent with animals (she even trained her cat). Her love of animals is so exceptional and comes through her and her training and care. Quotes
