"Nick has been a friend of Wendover Heights for several years and runs puppy training classes on site several times a week in addition to providing advice and referrals for behavioural problems. He is as passionate about dogs and our relationship with them as anyone I have ever met and has a deep understanding of canine psychology and the science behind it"
"Nick is both funny and realistic about the frustrations and the joys of dog ownership and his friendly and relaxed manner make him a very entertaining speaker. He just makes you want to go home and hug your dog and feel blessed for living with such a wonderful creature."
Julie Beacham BSc(Hons) CVPM - Practice Manager, Wendover Heights Veterinary Centre
Nick helped us from moment one with our incredibly nervous rescue dog, Jojo. He was compassionate, gentle and understanding, and lifted a challenging time with his humour and tireless empathy, both for Jojo, and us! He teaches in a practical, affirming way, and we have seen firsthand the positive impact that it has on dogs and humans. Sophie Dahl and Jamie Cullum
I would highly recommend Puppy Stars. Max enjoyed the classes immensely, they are hugely fun. Very relaxed and informative, with common sense training for real life situations. Sophie and Max
Seven is a happy, sociable, well behaved little dog thanks to the classes and I would say they are a definite must for all puppies and their owners. Sylvia and Seven
Thanks so much for a great training course! We really enjoyed it and learnt lots. Kerry and Thandie
The training was very useful not just for Jessie but for me also; our walk this morning was much better. Thank you so much it was a great evening. Margaret and Jessie
I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity of meeting you and your staff at the event of celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Puppy training. I was immensely impressed with the techniques demonstrated by yourself and the guidance given to help the owners help the puppies understand, which after all is the essence of what needs to be done. If the owners are to better understand what motivated the puppy then with this knowledge real learning will take place between both partners in this process. I felt the whole morning was very informative and would highly recommend puppy owners attend your classes. Councillor Mr John Boyd, Mayor of Thatcham
Remember Ronnie? He is growing up and continues to be a lovely dog who is such a pleasure... and much of that is down to you! I really enjoyed our training classes, when he was a puppy, and learnt so much about Ronnie and other dogs. Melanie and Ronnie

Harness on with no fuss! A very happy walk too. Didn’t think that was possible a couple of weeks ago. Thanks Nick. Louise and Kylo
My little dog Taffy and I am very grateful to Nick for the training help he gave us this summer. He understood our problems immediately and gave me strategies to tackle her areas of difficult behaviour. Taffy's obedience is much improved and we can enjoy life with our family, which includes small children, much more. Julia and Taffy
