Nichole had my pit bull Karma for the in-kennel training. My dog was out of control, highly aggressive with other animals and I could not walk her on a leash. At boot camp she played with other dogs, learned obedience training and got plenty of exercise and one-on-one sessions.


Since she returned from boot camp, she’s done a complete 180, I walk her every night and she no longer pulls on our walks. She is the dog I’ve always wanted and am so grateful for Nichole who made her a well behaved, happier girl. She also lost a lot of weight (I have to admit she was a sausage when she went to camp). Now she looks great and I feel great! Thank you CrazyDogs!




We have been clients of Nichole Hartmann who owns Crazydogs for about a year and a half. Nichole is wonderful and our two golden retrievers, Sam and Sophie, LOVE her!  Nichole is friendly, professional and

flexible. She has always been available to take care of our precious pups and they love spending the night at her ranch in Poway. Our dog Sam has been recovering from cancer and Nichole is always willing to give him all his medicines and supplements to help keep him healthy when he stays with her. Nichole is always willing to pick up and drop off our dogs and the value of her services for the prices she charges are unbelievable!  I would recommend Crazydogs to anyone interested in daycare, boarding and/ or training.

Nicole has solved a very serious problem for us!  We have a Rottie mix who was somewhat dog aggressive and needed to take in a hyperactive Pitbull!  She trained both and got them to accept eachother at her facility so that when they came home to us they are friends!  (And very much more obedient!)  Nicole was a real lifesaver, and the dogs love her!  – Judy



Isabella, my 3+ yr. old weimaraner, attended beginning agility classes with Nicole in October. Nicole is patient, encouraging and instructs clearly. “Izzy” was excited to be with other dogs, and though she had a short attention span initially, she made steady progress over our four evenings of training. We learned new skills and had a good time together.  I recommend this for anyone who wants to spend good quality time with their dog. It nurtures confidence and strengths your bond.


I have used Crazy Dogs services and worked with Nichole Hartmann for the past couple years. Nichole is somebody that I trust with my dogs and I can have peace of mind when they are boarding with her. I have referred numerous friends and neighbors to Crazy Dogs for boarding, training and doggy daycare. The dogs LOVE hanging out at the ranch with all the other day boarders. I know that when I pick my dogs up from Nichole from a day of daycare that they are going to be tired and happy dogs. Nichole loves what she does and it shows. – Karen
