Puppy Graduate Testimonials
‘We thank our lucky stars that we met Nikki. We were first time dog owners with our Maltese puppy, Toto, and feeling rather overwhelmed (understatement) when she first came to train him (and me). I was particularly hopeless (doing everything wrong) and how Nikki managed to keep a straight face is a mystery. Nikki has a gentle, natural, albeit informed and engaging, style, and has been absolutely lovely with Toto and my daughter. She also achieved fast results – Toto was following commands and doing tricks by the end of the first session, and thoroughly enjoying himself. Toto can now follow many commands and do lots of tricks, and Nikki also gave invaluable tips for “recall”. Toto is now booked on walking sessions with Nikki, and it’s lovely to know that he’s in such safe hands and will have so much fun with her other dogs on the common. Nikki is clearly a genuine lover of dogs, an impressive gifted conscientious professional, and an all-round lovely person.
Nikki and her colleague Beth always treat our dog like she is their own, which gives us the piece of mind we want in a dog walking service. We are so happy we chose Wimbledon Superdogs.
‘Nikki has been absolutely incredible as a dog walker and trainer; she has offered us kind and expert support even before we picked up our puppy, Monty the Beagle, and since we brought him home. She is incredibly friendly, funny, highly knowledgeable, and endlessly patient. Her training was fun and engaging for both us and Monty! He absolutely adores her – we can tell from his behaviour how much he enjoys his time during their walks and certainly noticed how well-adjusted he has become – who would have guessed you could get a Beagle to do recall! Thanks to Nikki we have a very happy and well-behaved puppy – unreserved recommendation!’
‘We can not recommend Nikki highly enough.
We were lucky enough for her to squeeze us in for 4 training sessions with our new French Bulldog puppy.
From the moment I made an enquiry Nikki was so helpful and willing to answer any questions we had as new puppy owners.
Her style, commitment, knowledge and dedication are without fault. She is a joy to be around and had a completely untrained puppy following commands within minutes. We have been so impressed that we already plan to book further training for the 6 month stages, and enrol in dog walking, as there is no one we trust more to look after our dog when we can’t.
If you’re looking for any kind of dog service, save yourself the hassle of looking around and go straight to Nikki. You won’t find anyone better.’
‘Doing the training sessions with Nikki was the best decision we could have made with a new pup. George has been a dream and a lot of credit goes to Nikki giving us the skills to train him. All of the commands she taught us get used every single day, and her walks in the park helped us understand how to read George and the other dogs, so I no longer worry when a dog twice the size of him comes bounding up to us! We are extremely grateful we found Nikki, and would highly recommend working with her to any puppy owner.’
‘I contacted Wimbledon Superdogs for help with training my 6-month old puppy Scout. From the start Nikki was friendly and very helpful and perhaps most importantly, she clearly loves dogs! Nikki’s sensible advice and calm training methods were perfect to help my puppy become a very obedient dog. The sessions we had with her were a great success! They were fun and very productive and the follow up notes she provided were really useful. This was money well spent and I would have no hesitation in recommending Nikki as a dog trainer’
‘We had 6 sessions of puppy training for our Beagle with Nikki as we knew she was somewhat of a Beagle expert! She was brilliant. Rosie loved her sessions and loved Nikki. We feel loads more confident now and are even mastering recall despite the Beagles elusive reputation! Would highly recommend!’
‘Nikki has been totally amazing – professional, knowledgable and reliable. She has such compassion, empathy and she truly cares about her doggies. As a new pup owner I was anxious and lacked confidence. Getting puppy lessons with Nikki was the best thing – for me, my partner and Mille the poo. Millie has gone from a shy timid pup to a bounding confident happy thing – as have I with her. I trust Nikki and will be going to her for future services’
‘Nikki was instrumental in helping me feel confident coping with a young puppy and helping Lottie to settle into our family. She is very kind and taught us how to manage Lottie by positive reinforcement and consistency. We have a lovely, sweet natured dog who we all adore and I feel it was down to Nikki showing us how to handle a puppy. The whole family participated in the training and I found Nikki particularly helpful and patient in answering lots of questions and giving advice. Lottie adored the training and was very excited when it was time for Nikki to visit. We still see Nikki as we are using her for dog grooming. Again she made sure that Lottie was happy and comfortable with the experience and she also was very concerned about how I would like her to look. We are delighted with her haircut…! I would recommend Wimbledon Superdogs with no hesitation…Nikki is great!’
‘Nikki is amazing with dogs. She is just a natural. Nikki helped us train our cockapoo puppy and she built a great relationship with Doolin and my son (who absolutely adores her too). I would highly recommend her. Best of all is we continue to see her as she helps us keep Doolin groomed in her calm and nurturing home environment. She really is very special.’
I must say that as much as you can research and read books, having Somebody actually come in and train your new puppy with you is a very different experience. It’s not just about training obedience to a new puppy, it’s also about learning yourself and how to do it effectively and in different environments. We are so pleased with Harley’s progress and how much she has learnt so quickly. From the moment we contacted Nikki we knew we had made the right decision – supportive, knowledgeable and open, Nikki has been an invaluable resource that we will no doubt in the future use again – Highly recommended!
‘We are so pleased Nikki was recommende
‘Training Buddy, our Cavapoo pup, with Nikki was the best decision we’ve made. From 9 weeks old, with all the family involved, Buddy has come on in leaps and bounds (literally!) under Nikki’s guidance and we have enjoyed every minute. We now have a confident 15 week old puppy and we’re going to miss our training sessions. I would highly recommend Wimbledon Superdogs – they’ve been amazing.’
‘Nikki was a god send to me and my little Pepper. I’ve not owned dogs before so I really had no idea what I was doing. I got in touch after Pepper was driving me mad and I couldn’t get her to calm down.
In walked Nikki and Pepper was a different dog! She’s a dog whisperer! Nikki taught us so much about keeping Pepper’s mind active and Pepper learnt so quickly!
My only disappointment is that we don’t get to see Nikki every week. She’s really brilliant, and I would recommend her to anyone!’
‘Nikki is wonderful and you can tell she truly loves what she does. We had 6 sessions for our puppy Lady and are so happy we did! Nikki is great not only during your session, but offers her support and advice before and after them. It is easy to get caught up in the craziness that comes with puppyhood and it has been wonderful to have support and guidance during this whirlwind of a time period. Thank you Nikki!!! We will miss our Tuesday afternoons with you.’
