Dog Trainer's Friend

Coaching & Consulting

for Canine Professionals


How many times have you wished for an experienced, supportive mentor in your dog training career? Maybe you’re an aspiring or new trainer who would like guidance on training, behavior issues, or working with people. Or, you’re more experienced, but every now and then a tough case comes up where consulting with a friendly expert would help. Good news! Now, no matter where in the world you are, help is here. For over 25 years, I have been training dogs and participating in the positive dog training community. Although my books and seminars have helped countless trainers along their paths, more individualized attention is sometimes needed.

"I am so very thankful for Nicole’s wisdom, support, and encouragement as my personal coach. As a new trainer, I struggled with “How-To’s” and was overwhelmed by many other things. The one-on-one sessions with Nicole have been amazing! Not only did she help me build up my confidence, but she also taught me new training techniques and how to fine tune a training protocol. Nicole’s knowledge and experience of dogs and people is incredible, and her teaching style makes learning easy and fun. Dog Trainer’s Friend – Personal Coaching is on my “Keeper List.”  --Heidi Moreau, CCDT
I reached out to Nicole to help me with my dog training business. I've read her books and trusted what she would have to say. Nicole was able to get my training packages sorted out far as structure. She was also able to give me tips on training techniques which worked with my clients almost immediately. I value her time and all that I've learned over the virtual sessions with her. My only fault is that I didn't reach out sooner. I plan to book addition Consultations with her in the future. -- Pamela Brown, CPDT-KA Down 4 Paws Dog Training
