What our clients have to say…

So happy we found you!

We had an extremely anxious GSD who was reactive to every dog he would come across. He also had numerous issues around the house due to his anxiety, causing obsessiveness and impulsivity. Thanks to Nicole at Top Dog Pawformance, Harley our GSD is far more calm and happy!! Nicole is very knowledgeable and provided assistance in each area we asked for help with. Nicole not only provides solutions, but ongoing support and guidance ☺. We could never have achieved what we have already accomplished without your help Nicole, we are so very happy we found you! Cannot thank you enough 🧡💚

Reliable and professional training experience

Nicole has been so amazing with our 10 month old Swiss Shepherd Tio….Nicole not only provides simple and clear instructions and training to Tio but to us as well!! Nicole has given us confidence to implement the strategies she works on with Tio and he has improved incredibly over the past 6 months. I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone wanting a reliable and professional training experience for their dog.

Brigitte & Tio

Would highly recommend

I contacted Nicole when my GSD was becoming reactive to the point he had pulled me over several times.
After working with us both I have seen massive improvements in his reactivity to the point I can take him out to dog friendly cafes and his behaviour at home is so much improved. I now have a less impulsive, well mannered dog and we are continuing to work as a team. I enjoy working with Kaiser and thanks to top dog pawformance I can see a good dog becoming great.
Nicole understands dogs and takes the time to ensure we are getting it right as timing is everything.
Would highly recommend.

May & Kaiser

Amazing to work with

Nicole was amazing to work with, teaching me how to give clear signals and instructions when communicating with my GSD and Malamute. With a few little tweaks and hints, I now can loose lead walk/jog with both dogs at the same time AND have their attention on me. We can run past other dogs and my pups can ignore!

Lisa & Lena

The Results have been absolutely amazing & we’re only half way through our program!

I can not recommend Nicole from Top Dog Pawformance highly enough.
We started training with Nicole when my Corgi was 11 months old. He was very difficult to handle as he was extremely excitable and had serious FOMO! Within 5 minutes of Nicole arriving she had Hugo settled and quiet, something that had never happened before! We can now take Hugo places & he will sit patiently, people will come over & he’s not a nightmare barking at us the whole time. The results have been absolutely amazing & we are only half way through our program! If you’re undecided as to who to go with, choose Nicole!
Also, we can now go for a walk without stopping 90+ (not kidding, I counted) for Hugo to wee/sniff! Nicole aka dog whisperer is amazing!

Brittany + Hugo

Within a week, he’s made so much progress, I’m in absolute awe!

Can’t recommend Nicole enough!!
My Bull Arab x is high with anxiety, which can turn into aggression. Within a week of his board & train he’s made so much progress, I’m in absolute awe!
I am overseas, but get sent videos daily and a close friend dropped by at Nicoles’ and was in positive shock to see how much my pup has changed!
11/10 go with Top Dog!!
