Who are you and what do you do? DogSpeak was founded in 1996 by Nikki Ivey, professional Dog Behavioral Consultant and Certified Family Dog Mediator. Our team strives to educate dog guardians, pet professionals and non-profits to communicate effectively with dogs through positive training techniques. This means we don’t use any type of aversive training tools such as choke, pinch or shock collars. We also offer training and business consulting to businesses and non-profit organizations. For more information about who we are and what we do, check out our Meet DogSpeak and Services pages.

Where do you train? DogSpeak travels to your home for training sessions in the Nashville area. Sessions are occasionally done outside of the home in public areas such as dog parks or pet-friendly businesses in order to work on specific manner and behavioral issues. Note: A travel fee may be accessed for addresses more than 40 miles from White Bluff, TN.

We do not have a physical training facility and do not offer board and train programs.

What are your hours? Sessions are scheduled Monday-Friday. We schedule appointments from 12 pm through 7 pm (7 pm is the start time of the last appointment).
