Empowering Dog Owners with Positive Training Methods

_STZ6317_Sat_HighL_ (2).jpg

My name is Nikolai and I'm a Swiss-Norwegian Dog Trainer & Behaviourist based in Perthshire, Central Scotland.

My mission is to empower dog owners by providing them with the most up-to-date, research-backed, positive and humane dog training methods so they can understand and communicate more effectively with their dogs.

As an animal lover, I care about the wellbeing of dogs and believe that dog training is about far more than obedience.


"Just finished first session with Nikolai and can't thank him enough. First time Buddy has gone further than the front door in the evening in months. Will definitely be back in touch with him once he is more relaxed in going out. Would highly recommend Nikolai to anyone who has issues with their dog. He has a calming effect on a really stressful border collie and owner."

How My Dog Training Methods Can Help You

As a dog trainer and behaviourist, I'm here to help you understand and improve your dog's challenging behaviour. I use positive reinforcement methods that have been proven to be the most effective and humane way of training dogs. This also helps to strengthen the bond between you and your dog.
