WHY? do I have to finish this course, when my dog is struggling with just guests coming in the house?
Dog's that struggle with guests coming into the house, often struggle with passing people on the street. It just might not be as explosive and aggressive, but they could be whispering this discomfort. If you say your dog is 'fine' passing people on the street, I bet my left arm they are not ok.
Along with this, this is where the training plan starts. You can learn more about the curriculum below, but we move through a training plan that starts with people from a distance outside of the home, then people closer outside of the home, then people coming into the house. So, trust us.. its a process and its a process developed to help you and your dog succeed.
Included in this course is our My Fearful Dog content which houses the NUTS and BOLTS for helping a dog that struggles with fear and aggression.

Nicole has been working with dogs since 2011. She started operating a small scale dog walking company, later expanding it to a corporation, employing a small team of fellow dog lovers and dog training enthusiasts.
Upon her journey with Sparky's Comrade Inc. she became heavily invested in learning more about dog wellness and behaviour. Her journey to become a force free and positive reinforcement trainer started there. She enrolled in The Academy for Dog Trainers in hopes of gaining an in-depth understanding of Applied Behaviour Analysis as well as a foundation of its application to Dog Training... and things snowballed from there:
Other Seminars and Certifications:
The basis of Nicole's education and experience is centered around working with dogs who struggle with Separation Anxiety and Fear-Aggression based behaviour problems. She is most passionate about working with dogs that have a bitey-barky way of saying 'no thanks, I'm scared' and those that find being left alone is scary. Her compassion for working so well with clients in these areas of difficulties comes from her own struggles with her dog Peanut. A nearly 10 year old foxy-gremlin who has a lot to say, and packs a lot of punch when she's uncomfortable. Be prepared for some relatable Peanut stories when meeting with Nicole and know you are NOT ALONE!
