I have 3 Labradors and have used Nicola on 2 separate occasions for 2 of them for very different reasons. The help, advice and support that I got on each occasion was excellent.
The more severe problem was that my youngest pup was extremely travel sick up to the point that even touching the lead or my boots she would run and hide then she would begin salivating and vomiting, and the vomiting would continue when we got in the car. I had gone down the conventional treatments which the vets had recommended but she appeared to be getting worse, not better as time went on. I didn`t ever think that we would be able to travel anywhere in the car with her as she was so bad. I was also aware that as she was a youngster I needed to get the lead training right, but was unable to do any due to the state that she got herself in when I touched her lead. It was then I contacted Nicola and following a home visit, a plan was arranged to help my pup over her fears of the lead, my boots and the car enabling her to enjoy her walks with her 2 sisters. It was not a `quick fix` and took many, many weeks of reassuring, encouraging and repetitive training to build up her confidence, but following the instructions on the plan that we had arranged and also with the support from Nicola, I now have a very happy girl who loves the car and her walks and has no longer any issues with the it, and when I get my boots she knows that it is fun time again. Nicola gave me the ability to help my little girl to overcome her fears and enjoy being a puppy again and I always knew that there was support at the end of a phone when I needed it. I cannot recommend Nicola and Contented Pets enough and would not hesitate to contact her again should I need help or support.
