Maeby is a Beagle mix whose owners decided to have trained after having their first child. She is a sensitive and intelligent Beagle mix who has excelled at everything thrown her way and in three short weeks is fully on and off leash trained.

Take a look at her working on Heel, Come and Place as the surrounding miscreants try to corrupt her… her responsiveness and focus remain unshaken!
Go Maeby!

Here is video of Maeby working with Nick during her in kennel training program:

Here is some video footage of Maeby working with her owner for the first time the day she came home.
You can clearly see hiow well she is transferring to her woner and how well her owner has learned to concepts of how to properly maintain her training as they work together for the first time.

Airdale Terrier in Montreal's west island - DDO - aggression issues rehabilitated!

Winston's owners were frustrated with Winston's behaviour. he would try to attack other dogs on a walk - not just bark and pull - but really try to attack.
  • Winston’s owners had taken him to a group obedience class prior to trainign with Nick and not achieved any really useful results.

  • The instructor told them it would be best to walk Winston when no other dogs were out - as in 5 am or midnight. The instructor was serious.

They called Nick to enquire about training together and was apprehensive at first when they were told that it would only take six lessons of private, in home dog training and thought the price was high as well (their words)- but here you can see Winston before and after and you can hear for yourself what his owners have to say about the process and if they felt it was worthwhile.

A rescue dog story in Montreal, NDG

Post training: Evaluated by another dog trainer and told their dog was “very sweet!”.

UPDATE: Kaylee was rehabilitated through Family K9's methods and Sheree and Anthony's efforts and not only goes to the dog park - but was brought in to a local doggie daycare facility - where the trainer there evaluated her dog and told Sheree that she was "very sweet and did not need any training". Sheree grinned and took that as a compliment - of course this trainer didn't know the "old" Kaylee:-)

Rescuing dog from the streets

Anyone reading this who has rescued a dog knows that the dogs can come with their own individual quirks and challenges.Kaylee is a dog who lived on her own in the country and had to fend for herself until Sheree and Anthony rescued her. Kaylee had MAJOR dog aggression problems and had tried training @ another school with no success prior to finding Nick. The trainer they worked with told them that there was nothing to do about it and to avoid otherdogs and squirrels and all animals because it could not be fixed.

German Shepherd Dog wants to kill cars - St Sauveur, Qc

Odin was a very special case - his drive to chase cars and level of aggression when doing so was extreme.

His previous trainer could not resolve the issue no matter how hard they tried …

His owners had tried to train Odin with another trainer unsuccessfully and came to Nick in desperation for a fix - helping make Odin much easier to take for a walk and transform him from a beast to a very loveable pet.See Odin’s owners Testimonial here

5 month old Husky - fully on and off leash trained! Montreal's West Island

Riley is a 5 month old Husky puppy who just completed a 2 week course - where rather than go out to kennel for training - Nick came to Riley's home and took her out for a lesson each day. No need for the dog and family to be separated - and you can see Riley not only did great but had a blast in training.Full credit must also go to Riley's family who took the time to do a puppy class with Nick prior to her obedience training. We've all heard about Huskies and how they can be difficult - take a look at Riley and you'll be amazed at how well she is doing off leash - and keep in mind she is still just a baby @ 5 months old!
