“I have had the privilege of working on several business projects with Niki Tudge, and she amazes me. Not only is she kind, compassionate, and down-to-earth, but she is a powerhouse of focused energy and clear direction. No matter how discouraged I may become about a glitch in the process, I come away from a session with Niki with renewed enthusiasm and optimism. She is a master motivator! I am convinced that Niki is not one person, but several clones, each one capable of great accomplishments. Her business knowledge and skills are unmatched" January 2013

And she combines all of this with her impressive and solid academic foundation in business and animal learning theory to create dog training and dog owner training methods that are scientifically based, effective and above all else, do no harm.” November 4, 2009

Owner, The DogSmith, Fl Emerald Coast
“Niki is an amazing businesswoman whose knowledge, drive and creativity is unparalleled in my work experience. As the owner of DogSmith Franchise Services, she is directly responsible for giving me the tools, training and confidence to start my own business - The DogSmith Emerald Coast franchise. She enjoys the process of putting people - especially other smart, driven women -- into business for themselves. Her best quality, in my estimation, is that she stakes herself personally and professionally in the success of her employees and business partners; their successes are her successes and failure is simply not an option. Her work ethic is extremely high, and her ethics beyond reproach. Her knowledge in areas of learning theory, animal husbandry and business matters, and personnel management is deep and broad. I consider it an honor to call Ms. Tudge a colleague and business partner.” October 27, 2009
