What Our Clients Have to Say...
Best dog trainer ever! Nicole has helped me and Jerry (border collie) through his reactivity (anything with wheels, people, dogs, noises) through building a solid and clear communication system between us. She helped me understand that reactivity often comes from a lack of relationship between the dog and the handler, so she got all the way back to work on foundational skills with us and assisted Jerry and I to restructure our relationship too. She goes above and beyond to support us. She also looked after Jerry when we were overseas in the last year and Jerry came home acting like a different dog (very calm and obedient)! She is extremely experienced, knowledgeable and skillful! After around 4 private lessons, Jerry’s car reactivity has reduced and his loose leash walking has improved. We are now attending Nicole’s weekly group class to help Jerry become neutralize/ stay calm with other dogs and people around. He has made massive improvement in the past year! We highly recommend Nicole’s private lessons as well as group classes!
Gigi + Jerry
Nicole has a brilliant understanding across all dog breeds regardless of size. I was finding it hard to find someone in the local area that understood primitive breeds. I took my Shiba to her and immediately Kiko wanted to jump through hoops for her. Nicole understood what Kiko needed from us. Her whole school system has helped us so much where other puppy preschools couldn’t. Kiko is now thriving with her training techniques. I also had a few private lessons with Nicole and they were so beneficial to both myself and Kiko. Nicole goes above and beyond outside of puppy school and is willing to help out with any questions or concerns you have when at home. She absolutely passionate about educating dog owners on how to effectively handle their dog through structured games & techniques. The rolling classes help for busy lifestyles and enable flexibility for house holds.
Shantal + Kiko
We've been working with Nicole for the last fews weeks, and in this short time Mochi our moodle has had a 180 turnaround on his behaviour. We thought his old behaviour was aggression but Nicole helped us understand it's fear and anxiety driven. She gave us the skills to help Mochi get more confident each day. We went with private sessions and these helped us get the most out of training him. Highly recommend Nicole!
Trang + Mochi
When we decided to go ahead with the owner trained Assistance Dog thing, I was a little apprehensive. I knew that my disability could sometimes make consistency difficult and my sensory issues aren’t really conducive to raising a well socialised puppy. We found Nicole around the same time we found Mochi. She talked us through everything we’d need from day one and the day Mochi was ready to head home, Nicole was waiting to take her on for a kickstart B&T. We got five weeks of constant updates about how cute, calm and responsive Mochi was and we knew immediately that we had made two very right choices. Mochi is now 9 months old and preparing to start very short public access trips in the new year. At the start of the year my anxiety, and trauma really made leaving the house for a walk impossible without the help of a support worker. Now, I’m independently leaving on 3 walks a day because through the training process, I’ve managed to develop enough confidence and a sense of safety that I can handle any situation that I find myself in with Mochi, Subak, or Gracie. This is all thanks to the amazing help and support that we’ve received since Nicole started helping out. She raises the best puppies!
Xava + Mochi
If you are seeking a dog trainer for any reason, Nicole at TDP is amazing and you should reach out and book in your consultation with her! We have 2 dogs and wanted a better relationship with them, and them with each other too. We have worked with Nicole for a couple of years, have stretches of fortnightly-monthly sessions either at our house or in parks and communicate outside of these too. Her approach is thorough, knowledgable and passionate all in one... she will lay out a plan and roadmap to get you and your dogs to the improvements you are seeking. She will give you support and feedback between the sessions when you need it for the work you put in between sessions too. Our dogs are now better trained/mannered in every sense thanks to her guidance. No dog is perfect, but she will give you the tools to help give you a much better relationship with your dog, both in private at home and out in public. Thank you Nicole!
Kym + Cleo & Benji
Nicole from Top Dog Pawformance has been an absolute blessing for myself and my Border Collie, Bobby. I was at my wits end struggling with our dogs reactivity (lunging and barking at cars, bikes, runners, prams, etc.), constant pacing in the backyard and barking. After doing some research for trainers in Brisbane, I came across Nicole and we haven't looked back. She has been great in helping to put procedures in place to manage our dog and has provided me with invaluable techniques in training him to improve his reactivity. Our Border Collie absolutely loves her and I have seen an incredible difference in him since working with Nicole. I can't recommend Top Dog Pawformance and Nicole enough!
Lauren + Bobby
Nicole is so amazing!!! She came to help us with lead pulling, jumping, biting and recall for our very excitable Dobermann, Hades. We noticed a HUGE difference immediately after she explained what we should be doing. Can’t wait for our next session! Thanks Nicole 😇☺️
Brittany + Hades
If you’re even considering a dog trainer, Nicole from Top Dog Pawformance is who you need. Nicole is passionate, understanding & sooo incredibly good at her job. I was genuinely so impressed from the first 5 minutes she entered our home. Having a dog trainer felt slightly intimidating for me, but Nicole was so helpful & supportive, making each step such a clear process. She ensured to explain everything in depth so that we were all on the same page. I honestly can’t thank her enough for showing change can happen (even with stubborn, sassy, slinky Dashie’s). Can’t recommend enough! Thank you again, Nicole - Tiarna, Amy, Slinky Dink & Oscar.
Tiarna + The Slinky Dink & Oscar
Nicole is so passionate about her job, genuinely wanting to help you and give you the tools you need to succeed. She is incredibly professional, adjusting her training style to best suit both you and your dog (or in our case, dogs x2!) to get the most out of each session. We can't recommend her enough!
Tracey + Jax & Braun
Nicole is great at what she does. She provided us with simple and effective methods to train our cavoodle. Would highly recommend!
