Nicole Crooks

Nicole Crooks - Rehabilitation and 1-2-1 Trainer

nicolecNicole first met Kris at the end of 2014 when she volunteered to be one of Timon's visitors (Timon is Kris Glover's people fearful dog), she was keen to donate her time to help out as her own rescue dog Kip has severe reactivity issues.

Having a strong interest in training and behaviour she began observing and helping out at the ever popular and successful Reactive Rover courses.

Nicole has been a qualified and registered Veterinary Nurse for nearly twenty years, been providing puppy socialisation classes for twelve years and over the past five years gained an ESPVS Nurse Certificate in Animal Behaviour and a COAPE Diploma in the Practical Aspects of Companion Animal Training and Behaviour. Keen to expand her knowledge Nicole is currently studying for a BSc (Hons) Degree in Applied Animal Behaviour via Portsmouth University.

Nicole currently has two dogs, Kip and Tyler. She obtained Kip from rescue six years ago, he came to her with very limited social exposure, showing huge reactive behaviours towards anything novel, most things in fact! Kip had made some progress with his behavioural modification for reactivity issues but this had been slow, however, since meeting Kris and the Pets in Practise Reactive Rovers graduate group his progress has come on in leaps and bounds. Tyler, her new terrier puppy has recently completed the Pets in Practise Puppy School classes and Improver classes.

As of spring 2016 Nicole will be taking over the running of Reactive Rover classes, along with running Reactive Rover graduate sessions in approach and long line work.

She is delighted to become part of the Pets in Practise team and is looking forward to providing rehabilitation support and one to one training.

A huge debt of gratitude

I first used Pets in Practise just over a year ago, when we needed to obtain high quality 'reward based' puppy training for the new addition to our family - Bo.   Bo is a Northern Inuit cross, whose role in our lives was primarily as a companion to our 5 year old son, Josh.  Josh had been diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome 6 months previously, and we had heard that dogs make very good companions for children on the autism spectrum.  Indeed, we discovered that Dogs for the Disabled...

Ted became part of our family around 18months ago with so many problems I wouldn’t know where to begin. One of the biggest problems was taking him out for walks.  He was utterly out of control. Dogs, people, children, vans, postmen, joggers, cyclists…….you get the picture.  Another was welcoming guests in to the home. Nightmare. I was recommended Kris Glover, by a local vet, as someone who could help me re train Ted and do so with compassion and kindness. Kris arrived...

As a practice, we have referred several behaviour cases to Kris and have felt completely confident in her capability and professional knowledge.

We referred our first cases to Kris based on other veterinary recommendations but had not met her. However after meeting her we were even more certain we had chosen the right behaviourist!
