Nicky King has worked and trained dogs for over 20 years, and has lived with them as part of the family for her whole life. She currently lives with her husband, four German Shepherd Dogs, one Picardy Shepherd, two giant rabbits and 12 chickens in Dilton Marsh. She has worked as a school teacher at A level for 24 years, and her hobbies include upholstery, gardens and textiles.
Nicky is a qualified canine behaviour consultant, having achieved a Distinction in the British College of Canine Studies' Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour, as well as a Certificate in Dog Law, and a Distinction in Dog Grooming. In addition, Nicky has a Certificate of Attendance in the practical course run by Balance Behaviour on behalf of the British College of Canine Studies.
Nicky specialises in listening carefully to the client, understanding the problems presented, rather than applying a 'one size fits all' response. She uses positive reward and reinforcement techniques as primary canine correction routines and specialises in establishing appropriate boundaries and rules to enhance a harmonious relationship within a family home after careful observation, assessment and diagnosis of behaviour.
Nicky will visit you at your home, or if preferred, at the office in Dilton Marsh. She has a comprehensive range of equipment and techniques at her disposal in order to help you and your situation. A follow-up session is included in the consultation fee and on-going email support is included.
