I have a miniature poodle who was 10 plus years old; although he knows many tricks, he was lacking in the discipline area as to who the person is charge was. I would always tell him to 'watch the house' and 'he was the boss'...he actually believed it. Well, Nichole helped me tremendously by helping me gain that authority back; teach him to walk with leash and to socialize with other dogs. She was wonderful with him, knew what his actions meant and how to teach me to be assertive. My dog caught on very quickly and he actually respects me now. He is more wonderful than ever and I have Nichole to thank for that and I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend her for whatever need you or your pet may have.
