About The Trainer:

Nichole Buckley-Warkentin

I use a balanced training approach utilizing reward and correction to teach your dog to make correct choices. Training is about consistency, communication and repetition, and a large part of what I do is to teach you, the owner, how to maintain your dogs training once they are home. I am always available for advice and support to ensure that you and your dog both succeed with your training goals.

I got my start with formal dog training working with dogs for waterfowl hunting, and still do a great deal of field training with our personal dogs. As any hunt trainer will tell you, obedience is the foundation of everything. You can’t truly progress your dog to more advanced training if the obedience is not solid.

This obedience is the same if your dog is training to work in the field or is simply a companion and well loved pet. We use the same methods to train pet dogs of all breeds that we use to train our field dogs when they begin obedience.
