"Jessica and her associates are very professional yet caring with dogs. Their techniques for an assessment are well thought out and explained and employ current technology effectively (e.g. video recording canine interactions including vocal explanations of their behaviour). Jessica also offers advice and allows for follow-up questions subsequent to her visit."

James Anderson Lawyers

"I must say a BIG "Thank You" to dog trainer Jessica O'Neill. She's the best dog and Service Dog Trainer. I wouldn't be telling our story, if it wasn't for her training skills, dedication, patience and working with Jojo."

Russ and I simply wanted to take a moment to let you know how fortunate we feel to have had the chance to benefit from Nicole's expertise and guidance yesterday regarding our puppy Forrest. He really took to you! It was a real pleasure to have you in our home. We are grateful for how patient and open you were with us and for the active interest you manifested in our situation. We felt inspired, supported, and like you had not only listened but also heard us. We also had numerous a-ha moments which provided useful tricks and keys for immediate remediation and implementation. And so, for your generous time, your genuine concern for both the dog and us as owners... for your willingness to share, ...a massive thank-you to you, Nicole! Thanks again for everything,

Sonia & Russ V.

"Jessica has an exceptional, natural connection with dogs. She handles high-energy environments (ie. a lot of dogs at once) with ease and calm. She has an excellent rapport with dog owners and gives patient and persistent guidance to owners. She always exudes a strong, confident presence."

Jodie & George and their dog Baxter

“Jessica is funny, laid back but professional. Very direct in terms of instruction and clear and concise. Always willing to elaborate and super patient. One of the things that makes her so great is that she can relate to animals and to people so well...and she LOVES my dog even though he is so difficult"

Amber & Simon and their Great Dane, Jay

Nicole from Pet Intel. provided us with the guidance and tools to best modify our 8 month old husky cross' behaviour and our own in a fun and low pressure environment. My husband and I learned a lot from our consultation through easy to understand methods and strategies we could incorporate into our daily lives. We loved Nicole's easy going attitude and constructive advice she tailored to Rory's needs, identifying areas we could improve on with insight and accuracy as well as providing solutions we could implement ourselves. We left our consultation feeling confident and properly equipped to build a balanced life for our puppy and ourselves! We plan to book sessions in the future with Pet Intel to further our training with science based methods that not only work for our dog, but for us too. 

Rae Einarsson-Rory

Even only after our initial consult we feel so much more in control of our lives again after speaking with Nicole and gaining a deeper understanding of our 8 month old shepherd and his needs. She explained everything so wonderfully, in ways that we could understand, along with showing us actual ways to improve his behaviour. The practices shared, the explanation and purpose behind them, and the added tips and tricks are extremely helpful and we cannot wait to start implementing them. Not only did we receive on the spot advice and education, but we were also provided with links to further documents, videos of different types of activities to do, as well as recipes for his kong. We are forever grateful for this initial consult, and I know our sweet boy will be too. Looking forward to future sessions!

Kylie Olson

Dear Nicole,

I can’t thank you enough for all the time, effort, and patience you gave to us yesterday.  Not an easy situation to walk into but you handled it beautifully. You were sympathetic, receptive and reassuring, but also firm and clear. I felt very hopeful and empowered after you left. It may sound crazy, but I think Penny felt it too. She has been good as gold since you were here.

Thank you—for listening, for genuinely caring (it really shows), and for being so generous in sharing your expertise.

With much gratitude,

Barbara & Penny

"Jessica has been a major support in our lives after we adopted 2 puppy mill dogs. She and her family are the only people we feel comfortable leaving our much troubled boston terrier when we go away. She has helped us be better pet owners and allowed us to love a dog with severe behaviour issues. Both our dogs have received wonderful training from Jessica and we never worry leaving them with her when they stay with her. Her family is like a 2nd home for them. They love being part of her pack. Thanks Jessica for all that you have done for us and the boys."
