I contacted Paws Off because my already anxious dog was starting to get more possessive of me now that we’re working at home all the time now. It was distressing for both the doggo and my partner, as well as for me. Nicole, the trainer, held a virtual session with us and got us to talk through in a lot of detail about our dog’s past (he’s a rescue) and his routines etc. She not only gave us insightful advice, but got us to try techniques during the session, which we saw had an immediate impact on our dog’s behaviour. We now have some great practical actions to help create a calmer and more predictable environment for our dog, as well as for ourselves. Thank you so much!
We were recommended Nicole by our vet to help with our dogs anxiety – i’m so glad we went ahead and didn’t wait until we could meet face to face. Even though we were unable to be with Nicole due to lockdown she was a huge support and help. For me and my dog! Nicole did a thorough assessment and I felt assured that she understood our dog and our scenario. It is thanks to Nicole that we have the confidence and a professional plan to put in measures to support our dog now and in the future and we can see that he is a happier dog for it. I would 100% recommend reaching out online for help if you need it and not waiting!
Hi Sarah, it was so lovely to meet you and Esme last week and I look forward to continuing to work with you so she can continue to improve. Such an amazing dog to work with – so smart!
The 6 week puppy course was really helpful for us. Learnt a lot and Nicole was very knowledgable. Would recommend this course for all new puppy owners.
Nicole was amazing with our puppy, she gave us really useful tips on how to toilet train her in a new environment. We will definitely recommend to others.
I was having so many problems with my young spaniel who had had a traumatic experience and was reacting to everything. With some help from Nicole I can now let her play off lead, she is more settled and happy. I was facing the prospect of possibly having to rehome her to a farm away from people but she is different dog. I would recommend Paws off to anyone as the techniques are reward based and you get support in between sessions.
Teddy was really struggling with confidence and terrified of going to the vets. Just being able to get him in the consulting room was hard stressful for both of us. He was starting to get very aggressive at vets appointment. Working with Nicole from paws off helped so much. He still uses the muzzle at the vets and probably always will but now I recognise the signs of Teddy getting stressed or frightened and have the confidence to support him. One happier dog and owner. Thank you so much!
We have been attending the fantastic Talking Dogs Scentwork workshops with Nicole and have really enjoyed every one of them. Nicole is very knowledgeable and great with helping you and your dog achieve, whatever your goal is. Look no further for 5 star training and behaviour assistance!
I would recommend Nicole to anyone with any worries or problems with their dog. I booked a session with her when I got my puppy as I was feeling really overwhelmed with all the information I was reading online and my puppy wasn’t eating. Nicole was warm, friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her services again.
We contacted Nicole to get advice before we get our puppy next month. She had plenty of knowledge and information to give but at no point did we feel lost or that we were drowning in details. Nicole made it very easy to understand and has given us more confidence as future dog owners. We have already signed up for her puppy classes in January.
