“Incredibly knowledgeable, dedicated and welcoming. Spending time with Nij was the most valuable thing we have done for our young border collie, taking him from being a fearful reactive dog, to a calm and responsive boy.”
Bertie Dog Training – Formed by Nij and Jo Vyas 1991
“As an owner of 3 large labradoodles I couldn’t be more impressed with the techniques Nij has passed onto me. I’ve completed 4 home visits with Nij and my dogs are actually listening (without me having to shout at them) and I am able to walk all three dogs on lead together – and that was after one session”
Nij Vyas and his wife Jo formed Bertie Dog Training 21 years ago with the following aims in mind:
- To offer a simplified and common sense approach to pet dog owners
- To maintain a friendly atmosphere where humour was an essential ingredient
They offer a truly unique training experience and client testimonials support this. Their success has been built on providing a structured and individual program of training with support to our clients always on tap.
Sheepdog Training and Trials
In July 2010 Nij’s first book “Sheepdog Training and Trials” was published by Crowood Press and received 5 star reviews from both Border Collie owners and competitors, as wells as owners of other dog breeds.
Practical Shepherding DVD
In 2015 “Practical Shepherding” was launched following Todd and Mist as puppies through to useful working adults. A second follow up DVD will follow shortly.
