Nikole’s Dog Training career began back when she was a small girl. At the age of 10 her parents give her a certificate good for one Puppy of her choice, but the catch was that she had to prove to her parents she was responsible enough to take care of the dog.

Right away Nikole began reading several books about Dog Training, and she prepared a PowerPoint presentation for her parents. Once her parents could see she was serious and ready for the challenge they took her to adopt an Italian Greyhound mix named Tiny.

Nikole worked with Tiny and trained him each day at home, and while going to retrieve the mail from her mailbox up the street. It didn’t take her very long to teach the dog to sit and follow her commands. As she kept walking Tiny, the neighbors began to take notice of how well trained the dog actually was. Soon many of her neighbors asked Nikole to train their dogs.

It was that moment that she knew that Dog Training was something she was good at, and she loved it. As Nikole grew up and moved out on her own she rescued Cooper, a mix of Rottweiler, American Staffordshire, and English Bulldog, from the Castaic Animal Shelter. While training Cooper at the local dog park, people took notice of how well the dog responded to her and the recall training she had done with him.

The dog park visitors would stop and say what a fine job she was doing. After several suggestions by patrons to become a Professional Dog Trainer, Nikole decided to attend a school for dog trainers at Animal Behavior College. Now a graduate of ABC’s On-site Dog Trainer Classroom Program, Nikole has over 13 years experience training dogs and has been rescuing dogs since 2009. Nikole is now the owner of Pawesome Animal Training located in Santa Clarita Valley. She hopes to continue helping dogs and their owners better communicate.

  • Congrats to all! I am just starting my classes and can’t wait to get started.

  • Congratulations to your new certified dog trainers. A best dog trainer is he who cares for a dog just like as caring for own children. Whether you want to train a personal protection dog, sporting dog, or even a hunting dog, your efforts bring real fruits only if you encourage these animals on every achievement.
    Anyway, best wishes for future success!
