Niki is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessed (CCPDT-KA), a Karen Pryor Certified Training Partner (KPA-CTP) and a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT).

She enjoys teaching agility and learning about behavioral training.

“What I love about dog training is that you can never know or learn everything, but you are always learning or teaching something. What I love about teaching is that moment when a student realizes that they can communicate with their dog, that they can understand one another.”

Niki has earned titles on her dogs in agility and rally obedience (in multiple venues) and has competed in CPE, AKC, USDAA, UKI and NADAC. Currently working with her Australian shepherd, Caymus (CH. Te Amo’s Best Day Ever!) and has plans for another Australian shepherd puppy to join the family soon.
