My name is Nicole Thomas, and currently own four dogs of my own; an English Springer Spaniel, a rescued Sprocker Spaniel, a young Labrador and a Border Collie pup. Locally, I have a reputation for taking in a heart-breaker, or two, and not just dogs. I also own 3 cats, 70 chickens/ roosters, 5 ducks, and a horse.
I provide on-site or in-house Puppy , Generalised and
Behavioural Training packages.
I also run a home-based standard boarding service.
I work as a Canine Behaviourist and Dog Trainer, and am based in a quiet village in North Oxfordshire. I typically cover Oxfordshire and surrounding counties but can travel across the UK to wherever dogs (and their owners) need help.
I have trained for the past couple of years in canine behaviourism & puppy/ dog training, and have recently taken up a new interest in scent-work; possibly given the idea by my spaniels!
When working locally, we have access to various public land and also a beautiful private location, specifically for training away from the world and distractions. This location is not advertised and is within private land.
Public land includes woodlands, miles upon miles of fields, bridleways and nearby wetlands for exercising/ training. We also have access to secure fields for those whose recall needs some work.
We have a large back garden, which is large enough for all dogs to move around comfortably and play or rest as they wish. Both the garden and private training ground has play/ training equipment for the dogs to access as part of their enrichment during exercise.
