"I am fairly new to dog training and am really enjoying this course. I love being able to take the course online as I don’t live close to any known science based, rewards based, force-free trainers. Having a month to review the material and perform the required activities is just enough time to be very doable with a busy schedule. This class has definitely improved my training skills and deepened my relationship with all my dogs. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in improving their training knowledge and skills, all while having more fun with their dog!" - Patti Howerton
Niki is not just an ethical and outstanding dog behavior consultant she is a genius at business, a combination we have not seen in the pet care industry. Many coaches can identify business problem-- you need more clients, more revenue, more marketing--- but only Niki actually helped me address and fix my business problems, in a way that enables me to actually have a life and avoid burnout. Whatever your dream, Niki's coaching and hard work can take you there, even if you thought it wasn't possible. If you want to take your part-time dog training business full time, walk don't run to hire Niki as your coach. Niki's coaching not only helps you operate your business more efficiently she helps you to establish an exit strategy so you have something to retire.

Her vision is helping to promote force free training among professionals in all aspects of pet care, as well as among pet owners, who can join as supporting members. She is a business savvy, dedicated and competent professional who is working every day toward a world in which no one has to use fear or pain to train a canine companion. I am incredibly proud to be her colleague and to have been asked to contribute to this effort. I highly recommend her, both as a professional dog trainer and behavior consultant, and as an advocate for the welfare of dogs.” Anne Springer, B.A., Dip., CTDI, CAPCT, VA
"... The instructor, Louise Stapleton-Frappell is always willing to help, or address questions. Through her Supplemental Learning assignments, I have learned so much more about the science and mechanics of training. They have totally inspired me to delve deeper into subjects I thought I knew..."- Sandra Lacroix, U.S.A.
