Here we teach you how to train your dog using positive reward based techniques so as to build a good relationship with your dog based on trust, well being and understanding.
Our SS was trained ably by Shanice. She was already 8 months old, but Shanice taught us a lot on how to handle her. Absolutely no regrets!

Just finished the training for my 7 month old cocker spaniel and thanks to Shanice he is able to understand obedience commands and is able to be potty trained. Happy with her dedication and patience as well ☺️

Gibbs is a miniature long haired dachshund, 7 YO who has been staying with Joy twice. His last trip was over the Christmas and New Year (over two weeks). During his stay, Gibbs has so much fun because he had a chance to play with Dash and Tobi (Joy’s fur babies) as well as other visitors. This surprised me a lot since it could be difficult for Gibbs to make new friends sometimes.Initially, I was so concerned and a bit worried how Gibbs would behave and adjust to a new environment. But Joy has truly shown me that she is capable of handling my little man, abossy T-Rex 🦖. Joy always keeps me updated how Gibbs goes. Her knowledge and expertise have truly helped Gibbs adjusting to the new environment 😊 very easily.Also, my mind was at ease knowing how Gibbs went every single day while I was away. I can’t thank Joy enough for looking after my little naught T-Rex for me. So we will see you again next month!

Max and Duke stayed with Joy twice within a month. We can’t thank Joy enough for how well she took care of both our furkids. We always had video and photo updates on them and even exchanged funny stories of our doggies. Our dogs also got along well with Joy’s dogs and became play mates. This is because Joy socialised them well and introduced them properly. We’ll definitely always look to board our dogs with Joy as she gives us such peace of mind when we’re away. I’m sure our dogs also enjoyed their stay. Thank you Joy! Max and Duke will be back again! 😆

Our agility trainer Michelle is a great coach! The lessons are well paced so as not to overtire the pup, the instructions are clear and most importantly, they are always fun! My pup, Chewie, loves every single agility lesson and is always looking forward to the next! 😬 Can’t wait to progress further down this agility journey with him!

Joy is very patient with my Kobe and takes care of him in the most loving and caring way! Whenever Kobe and I pull up to the driveway, Kobe gets sooo happy to see Joy that I know he's well taken care of, whether if it's daycare or boarding. Kobe also loves playing with Joy's 2 furbabies Toby and Dash and is very mindful of the dogs' temperament and tendencies and will adjust accordingly. Joy has a fountain of knowledge when it comes to all things dogs, and is always happy to share! I'm so grateful to Joy for all that she has done for Kobe and I! Thanks!!
02:57 01 Jan 20
My girl Mochi have a great 10 days boarding with Joy.She is very detailed and will sent us photos update Everyday, Mochi looks really happy and enjoying herself there.So Glad to have found Joy boarding,definitely will be back again soon.

Bailey had a pawmazing 6 days of boarding with Joy, Tobi and Dash! Our mornings are always brightened up with videos and photos of Bailey. We could always count on Joy to take care of him with utmost care. She never fails to provide us with regular updates and always seeks our opinion and advise before making any modifications when required. Her passion and love for dogs is clearly exemplified by the way the dogs are cared for. Knowing that our furkid is in good hand’s is what most dog owners seek for and Joy is definitely someone that ill go to for a long time! I’m sure Bailey agrees with me too! Look at how ecstatic he looks! I woof you Aunty Joy!
11:58 20 Dec 19
We have had our Toby stay with Joy for boarding a few times already. And Joy takes good care of him like her own furbaby. She is very detailed and would update us with videos and photos. We also appreciate it when she would ask us first regarding food allergies before she gives him any new treats. And our Toby gets along well with Mr. Tobi and Dashie. I always feel comfortable whenever we go on trips that Toby is in good hands. Thank you so much Joy!

I have completed the Basic Dog Obedience Trainer Program. It’s been a wonderful journey learning from Shanice for the past 12 months. Shanice is very patient, and detailed when imparting her knowledge. The course requires a lot of reading, assignments and video submissions. I was also required to conduct real classes as part of the learning process. The hands-on experience SuperNova International provides is unlike online learning platforms, that costs a lot more as well. Being exposed to real-life problems faced by dog owners, and trying out fixes is what makes the sets Shanice apart from the rest. SuperNova International It gives me the confidence and the head start in my own Dog Trainer’s journey.
03:31 13 Oct 19
My SS Garcia was trained by Shanice and has obtained her licence under Project Adore in October 2019.Shanice was very patient and gentle with Garcia. She only used positive reinforcements. Garcia (who is terrified of strangers)was always happy to see Shanice after a couple of lessons.Thank you Shanice for helping me to understand both Garcia n Sushi and being a better dog owner.
02:23 11 Oct 19
We left our puppy Cleo in the good hands of Joy when we went on vacation for 5 days last week.Joy provides us with constant updates and Cleo looked so happy!She learnt how to socialise with other dogs and Joy gave us some great take away tips to continue Cleo’s learning.She looked happy and safe and made us feel comfortable to not only enjoy our holiday but confident we would take her to Supernovas again!We highly recommend and thanks again Joy!
01:23 30 Sep 19
My dog Happy just graduated from this basic obedience course. Well recommend for beginners.

We left Horlicks with Joy while we were on a five day trip and when we picked him up, i think he was having so much fun that he seemed quite upset to leave😅 Joy took really good care of our boy, consistently updating us throughout. We also appreciate the fact that she took the efforts to understand Horlicks as an individual and to tailor interactions/playtime that suited his character. Special thanks to Tobi and Dash, Joy's elite team, who made sure that Horlicks had alot of fun too! Kudos!
13:03 17 Sep 19
I left my 2 dogs with Joy for boarding from 6-8 September. Joy was really detailed and meticulous in attending to my dogs’ needs, bearing in mind the pointers that my hubby and I shared with her. She also sent us timely updates and assisted in the taking of really cute pictures of our dogs while they were in her care. From the pictures, we could tell that they thoroughly enjoyed their time at Joy’s place. Thank you very much for taking care of them and putting our minds at ease with the regular photo and video updates while we are away! We will surely place them under her care the next time we require boarding. Thank you Joy (:
13:03 14 Sep 19
My puppy Ellie and I both enjoyed the training sessions. Ellie knows when it's Shanice who is calling thru the intercom -- she gets way more excited than if it were anybody else. Because of that we would spend a good several minutes training her to calm down so we could start our lessons! Shanice is very patient and positive in helping me understand how to communicate with Ellie better. She also gives recommendations on food, doggy activities and accessories, which are a great help to us as first time owners.
09:05 10 Sep 19
Each time Shanice arrive, Toto gets super excited to see her. This is a clear indication of how much he enjoys her company and training sessions. Supernova emphasizes a lot on positive reinforcement which is extremely effective, long-lasting and humane. Toto is so much more obedient now and the training sessions were easy to follow even though I am a first-time dog owner. Don't bother with other training schools with gimmicky marketing and advertisments, that is not what you want to pay for. At supernova, what you get is sincere, genuine and effective training. Highly recommended.
06:41 04 Aug 19
Just completed our training sessions for GrooT our family’s puppy Toy Poodle. Shanice’s love for dogs really shows as she’s training GrooT. She’s always patient and happy while she gently corrects us;)

Joy from SuperNova looked after our rather boisterous 7 month old Lab puppy at her apartment while we were away for 2 weeks. We received daily updates with photos and videos. Our dog was very well looked after, Joy is obviously very passionate about dogs and gave us useful advice on our dogs ongoing training and needs. We would definitely leave our dog again with Joy and highly recommend.
09:09 15 Jul 19
Highly recommended Madeleine as a trainer if you are looking for one. Patient and very good in guiding us especially when we are first time dog owner. Sharing with us all the knowledge we should know. Thank you 🙏🏼
11:01 24 Jun 19
Ollie had a great training session with Supernova! the trainer Amy was patient and so incredible with our little pup. She shared several usual strategies and ways to engage and encourage good behaviour in the dog. thank you so much for this incredible experience! I highly recommend the agility training sessions!! 🙂
13:08 16 Jun 19
This is the first time boarding our pet. It took me months before I finally found supernova. Joy is the person who took care of my dog. Joy did a great job in taking care of my 18 months old Pomeranian. She has done an amazing xcellent job keeping us informed by sending pictures and videos. Everyday she cook for my dog. Joy is very reliable, flexible and trusted. I am very thankful for Joy, her professionalism and her genuine love for pets.
11:11 16 Jun 19
Shanice and Joy are very patient and understanding trainers. I have a timid and sensitive dog so I'm very particular with the training methods and the trainer. However Shanice and Joy are great to work with, they never once made my dog too uncomfortable and their positive training methods prove fantastic in helping my dog learn and grow more confident. Kudos to the both of them!
15:31 27 May 19

We attended the good canine citizen course with our 1.2 years old singapore special melo, whom we just adopted. We chose supernova academy as Shanice and joy uses positive reinforcement training. Sure enough the lessons were relaxing and rewarding. we enjoyed and gained from the lessons a lot. Thumbs up!
05:51 26 May 19
I signed for the loose leash class with Supernova for my Chloe. She is a 4 months old Goldie. Shanice is a very cheerful, friendly and patient trainer, and Chloe loves her. Chloe had completed her loose leash course yesterday and today, I took her out for a long walk. Very happy to see her able to walk politely on a leash - no more pulling and running to other direction. Thank you Shanice.
05:53 27 Apr 19
Great experience training our Shiba Inu with Shanice. Good tips and tricks to have a well mannered and enjoyable pet! We would definitely recommend Supernova!
00:47 21 Apr 19
Great boarding experience with a superb fur friend in Joy! Big shout out to her for being passionate and proactive when our GR boarded with her for 8 days. She was super loving towards Benji and constantly feeds him Lots of treats and love. We are super pleased with Joy for the well done boarding service she provided. Lots of heartfelt thanks to you and for loving the thing you do and doing it so well. Keep it up!
05:45 08 Apr 19
Completed my private home training program by Shanice, and experience was awesome! Pup is now so much more obedient than ever and I’ve too learned so much from this training. Shanice is very patience throughout whole of the training and very willing to share her experience and knowledge with me.I strongly recommend first time dog owner to sign up the training package 🙂

Wonderful & encouraging training by Sharnice. We benefited so much & enjoyed our pet Beagle so much more. A very positive experience.
12:46 29 Mar 19
Never one to sweat the small stuff, we had difficulty getting Treasure to be interested in following commands. Shanice managed to help us motivate him and advised us whenever we had issues with crate-training or toilet training. Shanice was always very responsive and taught us useful commands which we hope to reinforce daily. After these 8 sessions, I realised that some dogs learn fast, and some dogs learn slow. But as long as you (and your furkid) don’t give up, you will get your furkid to be the good canine citizen you want!We also went on a short family get-away and entrusted Treasure with Joy. We were very reassured with our daily updates (pics and vids) and saw our puppy having great supervised fun! His tail never stopped wagging and we knew he was enjoying his staycation as much as we were enjoying our vacation!
10:22 20 Mar 19
We adopted our dog lassie and he is 5. We don’t think he has previously undergone any form of training n finds it hard to obey simple commands.As the old saying goes, can’t teach a dog old tricks but shanice was very patient with us n lassie. Her approach of fun and reward in training made going for sessions fun and non threatening even thought he was an adult amongst puppies.Shanice displayed an intuitive understanding of dogs and was able to slowly get lassie to learn the commands and she was also very patient with us, taking individual steps with each dog to cater to the unique challenges of each dogI would strongly recommend supernova for training.

I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU and share our experience on Trainer Joy.We sent our 2 shelties – Maxx (13) and Mieko (7) to her during the CNY week.We are so thankful towards her because; Maxx, our senior boy had his jaw removed in Aug 2018 because he had oral melanoma. Maxx is recovering well. Without a jaw means he will take a longer to finish his food. He also has to consume his regular supplements twice daily. Trainer Joy had so much passion with them that she ensured me Maxx and Mieko are ok. We get videos and pictures of the duo and this puts us at ease. She is also very attentive and patient towards Maxx on his feeding.We highly recommend that you board your dogs with Joy! She is passionate and trustworthy, and your pets will be well taken care of. This attached picture speaks a 1000 words. The look on our shelties is priceless and tells us we've made a good choice! We are looking forward to more future boarding with Joy! Thank you, Joy!Love, M&M
21:28 22 Feb 19
A big shout out to Shanice who trained our GR Benji. Patient and thorough trainer who helped us a lot to get our boy obedient to the commands. At the same time, Shanice also shared much knowledge on managing Benji. Kudos to her!

We had to put our border collie with Joy for 23 days. Joy’s passion and understanding towards dogs makes her the best caretaker ever. She took the initiative to constantly update us and also to change certain unwanted habits. Overall we are super pleased and could tell Tiger thoroughly enjoyed her stay. Highly recommend Joy if you want a stress free getaway and someone who values the well being of your dogs. Thanks Joy, for putting in so much effort in doing what you do.
05:39 28 Dec 18
I am quite picky when it comes to choosing trainers and I have no regrets choosing Supernova. The trainers here are knowledgeable and helpful. Always encouraging us to do better and are able to offer valuable insight into improving our skills and handling techniques.Since joining Supernova's Competitive Agility class, my Japanese Spitz has gone on to qualify in 3 agility trials with 1st placing and attained her first agility title, SSB. I credit this greatly to the training and guidance received from Supernova's agility trainers; Ween Sze, Amy, Michelle, and Shanice! If you are looking to try agility out, I would definitely recommend Supernova as they have a good, structured training programme that will give you solid foundations and amazing trainers who will bring out the best in you.
10:30 13 Dec 18
i highly recommend Joy who's an excellent trainer to my 4+ month french bulldog. joy is very patient and has a great touch with puppies. my puppy came back from the board and train programme with Joy, calmer and more obedient than before.
04:06 06 Dec 18
It wasn't easy training Chloe outside of the home; particularly "down" command. 😝 However, Shanice's clear and simple instructions and appropriate pacing made it possible for me to get Chloe to understand. Chloe still remembers the commands, and is quicker now to follow through, at least at the home front. 🤣 I find that she also seems calmer on walks and can walk along side us better. Thank you, Shanice. It was a fun learning experience!
09:56 09 Nov 18
My puppy, Carlton who was four months old completed the 5 day board and train program with an awesome trainer – Joy. We were inconsistent in his training and working most days so it was tough to dedicate the time needed for his basic training. Shanice and Joy updated us regularly with messages, videos and pictures. Even from day one we could see so much progress, especially in his toilet training. Upon completion of the board and train, Joy and Shanice spend a good few hours with us at home, teaching us the techniques and skills required to keep him on the right path.The results we have seen are tremendous and we cannot thank the trainer, Joy enough for getting us to this stage.I would highly recommend Supernova, Shanice and Joy for your doggy training needs.
04:49 23 Oct 18
My girl, Belle, is a dog with very low confidence outdoors. After her Puppy Agility course with SuperNova, she is now a lot more confident and has learnt to enjoy playing outdoors. Really appreciate trainer Ween Sze's patience and guidance throughout the course. She is able to identify the weakness of each dog in the course and provide customised timely feedback and suggested practices.
11:17 08 Oct 18
Thank you Shanice for her dedication towards training my naughty boy Hushbrown! I took up private training and I can say that Hushbrown does well with his basic behaviour and is able to listen to simple commands now! Would consider going for advance training or agility programme! Well done Shanice, SuperNova and Hushbrown!

We signed up our 4 month puppy Loki for an extended board and train for 9 days with trainer Joy. He learned quickly how to poo and pee on his pee tray which he completely revused to do before. Joy gave us timely and daily updates on what Loki has been learning, which put us at ease while we were away. Joy also managed to get Loki to learn basic commands, accept his crate which he previously hated and also socialisation with other dogs and children! We could see that Loki very much enjoyed learning with her and her puppy Tobi. Strongly recommend!
05:17 01 Oct 18
Dog trainer course:Learning from Shanice has been very fruitful and enriching these past 8 months. Her transparency and willingness to share makes it easy for people to be open about any questions they may have and not feel embarrassed about asking if a certain way of doing something is right or wrong.She has provided me with opportunities and is always there to offer advices. Our teamwork has grown tremendously albeit a short period of time and I believe it’s because of our common belief towards reaching out to both dogs and owners an equal opportunity to practice positive reinforcement training which really creates a stronger bond between the two.I look forward to exploring more of what I can learn and achieve to help SuperNova grow to greater heights!
03:32 30 Sep 18
Thanks Shanice for training and looking after Anya, our lab. Thanks for all your advice and patience ! Much appreciated and highly recommended by all of us ... and Anya of course!! Roland and Louise Tan

When we got Queenie, we were already in love with her. But it can become quite frustrating when she pees everywhere around the house, bitey when it comes to play, eat her own poop and a list of other issues. During our private training session with Shanice, she was able to spend the 1-1 time to teach us as first time pet owners how we might have been giving Queenie mixed signals that could have confuse her and also correct her wrong behaviour. Correction the dog is important to resolve the issue. But teaching the owners how to read the dog’s body language is priceless. Queenie is now so much more fun to play and live with now. We are enjoying her so much more. Thank you Shanice!
03:23 18 Aug 18
I have decided to sign up private lessons for my 8 month old Coco with Shanice after reading so much of good reviews.She is very approachable and patient. She uses positive reinforcement which was what we wanted in a training. Coco was able to learn few tricks a lesson, we would take few weeks to get Coco to master one trick!We are glad that we had signed up with Shanice to teach us on how to handle Coco.

My puppy Faith just completed her Good Canine Citizen course, and I opted for the private training sessions with Shanice. I was at my wits' end when I brought my puppy home because my puppy was not toilet trained and I felt that my own methods of training were not working. What Shanice can do and will do (during the private training sessions) is to examine the layout of the potty area and advise on the best way to commence toilet training. I'm glad to say that Faith is toilet trained now! On top of toilet training, Faith now responds to all basic obedience commands like "come, sit, down, stay, paw" and I was taught how to properly walk her on leash. I would have to say that Shanice is very patient and does her best to answer any questions that you have about your dog's behaviour. Thank you Shanice and Supernova for all the hard work you've put in! Faith and I are looking forward to agility training! �
00:59 28 Jul 18
Definitely a 5 Star for @shanice. She is a patient trainer, very helpful, comes on time, often worked overtime with us without complains, demonstrated numerous times where needed, good with explanations and technique, and definitely helped my dog grow leaps and bounds. Thank you so much!The cost is also reasonable! Even more competitive than what the industry is looking for. Very very value for money, and very high quality training. Hopefully she doesn’t raise her course fees!!!

Our 4 months old puppy has finally completed her SuperNova Comprehensive Good Canine Citizen, trained by Shanice. The trainings were at a good pace with Shanice being super patient and helpful in explaining the cause of bad behaviours and ways to tackle them with positive reinforcement. SuperNova has really delivered its promise on using positive training techniques with patience, kindness and consistency. Can’t thank you enough Shanice!
07:05 07 Jun 18
Gotten my puppy Teddy when he is close to 5 months old. I had no prior experience in owning a puppy. Teddy was so mischievous that we had no idea how to train him. Luckily a friend introduces us to Shanice and her training and tips are awesome. She also willing to stay a little longer to share with us tips and tricks on training Teddy. She uses positive reinforcement methods and tried different methodologies till Teddy understand the command.

Shanice was great! She taught us how to train our 3.5 year old rescue using incentives. We didn't think we needed a trainer as Hollie came with a very mild temperament, but through the training, we learnt so much more about training her through the use of incentives.Thank you Shanice, hope to see more of you around!

When we adopted bubu from SOSD, we had difficulties getting her to follow us properly. There were times when walks got super long because she refused to walk where we wanted her to go and simply sat there in a meltdown. After the Good Canine Citizen course, Bubu can now follow and walk by our sides with commands. She can sit and lie down on command. We are now more confident of bringing her outside and walking Bubu now is so much more enjoyable as Bubu knows what we want her to do. Thank you Shanice!

My puppy, Bundy, is officially a good canine citizen and I cannot thank Shanice enough! When I started looking for a trainer, I knew that I wanted one who advocated positive training techniques, although I was admittedly a little apprehensive as to how effective it would be. Fast forward 6 weeks, I’m so glad I engaged Shanice. From day 1, I was impressed at how quickly my dog responded to Shanice’s positive training methods (and to Shanice herself) and it wasn’t long before Shanice helped me realise that with lots of patience and consistency, I can train Bundy to do almost anything! I’ve grown a more confident dog owner thanks to Shanice and Bundy, while more obedient, remains as happy and playful as ever! Thank you, Shanice! I’m looking forward to starting agility classes with you!

I've Signed up for Puppy Private home lesson with Shernice of Super Nova, she has taught me basic command and reinforce when my pup starts to get stubborn.Other then teaching me basic commands and addressing some behaviour problems and my concerns. Shernice also follows up to make sure everything is alright with my pup, which other academy do not really.Shernice has been a really big help teaching me to condition my pup to make sure my pup grows up well and healthy! and will need her help again.
15:09 27 Feb 18
We signed up for a puppy class at bishan park for my dog. As a first time owner, we definitely gained valuable insight on the importance of puppy socialization. Shanice also shared with us her experience handling dogs of different temperaments and how to look for signs of aggression in other dogs (especially important when bringing your dog out for walks!) Thanks and hope to see you around!
11:42 27 Jan 18
Signed up for the dog obedience training with Shanice and she gave us very realistic tips for our rescued Singapore Special who is very jittery. Shanice was also very patient and good with the dogs during all the training sessions. Thank you! 🙂

We just completed our Good Canine Citizen training with our adopted 4 years old Singapore Special, Katy. Shanice is a knowledgeable and patient trainer and we like her positive reinforcement training approach. This is the first time that we had attended any canine training with our past dogs and I must say it was a pleasant experience, seeing how our Katy respond to various commands such as Heel, Close and Leave that are important for our daily walks with her. We would definitely recommend her to any dog owner who is keen to take up the training. Thanks again, Shanice! From Elvin, Corine and Katy! 🙂
07:33 29 Dec 17
We just finished our Good Canine Citizen course and it's been a tremendous help. Lillie started with a mind of her own and a strong sense of personal space with other dogs (understatement!), but with Shanice's help in less than 2 months she's listening better, better on her walks, more obedient and has much improved with other dogs.
09:20 16 Dec 17
Excellent pet sitting service from Shanice. No worries about our doggy staycation when we are away because we know our little girl is in good hands, with good company. Nikko thoroughly enjoys each and every staycation with Shanice! Many thanks for your love for Nikko.

We signed up for private basic obedience Project ADORE classes with Supernova and can definitely say we made a great decision.Our trainer, Shanice, is extremely knowledgeable, willing to share, and great at training both humans and dogs! Her love for dogs is obvious too.Shanice clearly communicates what we hope to achieve in each session. She also adapts her training techniques during the session if the human or dog does not seem to "get it" or if there are easier/better ways to communicate what we want the dog to learn. (Note: All techniques used are positive which was what drew us to Supernova.)As a result of the training, our previously untrained dog can now focus on walks in spite of distractions, come when called, leave things alone when asked to, heel, etc. She has even gotten compliments from strangers that she is very "guai". Although, of course, she is not perfect and still a work in progress; dog training is a lifelong process anyway. The important thing is, through these sessions, we now have a foundation and are equipped to train our dog in a positive and happy way for the rest of our lives together.We would definitely recommend Supernova and Shanice!P.S. Shanice, sorry it has taken us so long to write this review!

First came to Shanice with my dachshund barking & behavioural problems and decided to go for her private home training. Not only was she friendly & easy-going, she has imparted to us many useful tricks and advices throughout the 5 lessons. Will definitely recommend her to anyone who has similar issues!
09:43 20 Sep 17
Mó Gū is my first puppy, and I wasn't sure how to train her, so I decided to bring her for obedience training! She started her first lesson when she was 3 months and 1 week old, and completed the obedience course when she was almost 5 months! In the beginning, she didn't want to walk at all when leashed, But thanks to shanice's advice, that issue was resolved by the 3rd lesson! �

We attended the good canine citizen course with our 6 months old toy poodle Mong Mong .We completed the lessons on 27th Aug and Mong Mong was presented with his very first certificate .Mong Mong is happy & look forward to attend every lesson on Sunday afternoon . He enjoy himself very much as he is able to learn new things and meet new friends .Shanice is very patience and she teaches us new skills to handle Mong Mong , she is able to tell us what we need to improve on & Mong Mong are able to listen & follow instructions better after the lessons .I also do agreed that more dog body language skills should be included in the lessons so we can be more sensitive to our furkids feeling and moods .Thank you Shanice for all the efforts in making the lessons so enjoyable for our Mong Mong .

We attended the good canine citizen course with our 7.5 years old singapore special Happy, whom we just adopted. We chose supernova academy as Shanice uses positive reinforcement training. Sure enough the lessons were relaxing and rewarding. Maybe some things that I can suggest are that lessons would have been better with a better venue and maybe a much more solid foundation on how to read the dog's body language, how to reward at the right time. But still, we enjoyed and gained from the lessons a lot. Thumbs up!
07:23 28 Aug 17
My family engaged Shanice for private home training sessions as our 3 year old Singapore special, Doozer was rather skittish outdoors. He also has issues with barking when he hears noises. Throughout the 5 sessions, Shanice has been very patient and encouraging with Doozer. Shanice was able to provide tips which were sustainable and do-able for us in the long run.

Supernova dog training was great for my 10 year old dog! I have already completed 3 terms of dog agility training and have developed a better bond with my dog. Nugget looks forward to lessons each time. What's great is the lessons are tailored to your dog's level and also with group training there is a level of motivation to improve. Lessons are not too structured and allows owners to self explore their handling. Immediate feedback and also constructive tips to improve.Quite flexible dates and timing. Only thing I wish for is more run time!

My boy and I had a wonderful experience training under Shanice. She is patient and shared a lot of challenging situations which she herself face with her own dogs and solutions as to how to overcome those challenges. Her training encompasses positive reinforcements which was what appealed to me and after the training it made me an even firmer believer in how powerful reinforcements are to communicate with your furry companion. Thank you Shanice!

My Beagle pup Echo completed her 6 weeks private lessons with Trainer Shanice. I'm thankful Shanice was very patient and understanding with us during the lessons. My goal is for Echo to one day do agility and play frisbee. It's a challenge with a Beagle, but with the help from Shanice we are now one step closer to that goal. 🙂

Princess Nanuk and I enjoyed our basic obedience training with Shanice � I learnt that training was possible with positive reinforcement, which was especially helpful as Nanuk is averse to the usual negative methods that I'm more accustomed to with my parents' dog. Nanuk is now a Good Canine Citizen. Thank you SuperNova and Shanice! �

Koby has completed the Dog Obedience Training conducted by the Trainer Shanice. Shanice is dedicated and has excellent knowledge of dogs. She has demonstrated very good understanding of golden retriever qualities and behaviour. With better understanding of Koby, it has improved our relationship. We have also bring him to a better control and management after the short period of training.

Our darling Noel completed his obedience training yesterday. He received a certificate from his wonderful trainer Shanice Tan. We are grateful to Shanice for taking Noel under her wings for the last 7 sessions. She is a skillfull, kind and on task trainer. In addition, she shared with us several useful tips related to dogs. The time spent with her flew past very fast because it was very enjoyable for Noel and us. Thank you Shanice! Wishing you all the best in all your endeavors!

Telly attended the level 2 agility training with Shanice. Telly looked forward to each class and enjoyed all the running and jumping. I loved being able to do dog sports with Telly and building on our bond and teamwork. Thank you Shanice for your patience and the many helpful tips. What I liked best was the use of a positive approach to training and how you made it a fun experience for the dogs. I also really liked the top notch equipment and nice turf field that we trained at.
16:02 13 Mar 16
I'm a good example of positive food based reward training. Daddy says I'm a good girl now..

Thanks, Shanice for imparting to us your knowledge on training our dogs.Very happy that Reiki is able to listen to commands n be an obedient little puppy now.

Donna attended a set of 8 basic agility classes with Shanice at Bishan Park. It was at an affordable rate and at a very accessible location for us. We had a trial session with Shanice before we decided to join the course. Shanice was very patient with Donna who was fearful of tunnels and needed more time to learn to run through them. In general, I was very comfortable with Shanice. She is very friendly and easy-going, and even offered the class an extra Saturday to practise at the end of the course that I really appreciated! Shanice's basic agility classes at Bishan Park is a good choice if you're looking for something fun to learn with dog in the AMK-Bishan neighbourhood.

It was awesome working with Shanice. Our little Sam has learnt so much since we got him as a little pup at 3 months old. Shanice had all the little tricks to help our little fella become who he is today -- well behaved and even does some little tricks! Thank u so much!

Pluto was very scared and timid when we adopted him. He was scared to leave our house and at times was even too scared to come down the stairs. With Shanice's help, using positive training method, Pluto has learned basic commands and after three to four lessons, he felt encouraged enough to finally walk out our door and walk down the hall way. Six months in and we have seen siginificant improvements in his behavior and he continues to get better each day. For owners who have dogs that are fearful or timid, I highly recommend Shanice's lessons as these problems cannot be ignored and will worsen unless the owners make a commitment to help our beloved dogs.

I joined the class mostly to socialize my puppy. I had already been training him on my own through internet information before he had all his vaccinations. The class helped in his socialization and doing his commands/tricks with distractions. I also learned quite a few things in the class that I did not learn from the internet. Shanice was very helpful and great with all my questions. I have lived in Singapore for 5 years and has never been to Bishan Park before. It is a Wonderful place to have obedience class. After class we would go to the dog run and then have a Nice bite to eat at the dog friendly restaurants. It made for a great puppy day! I Look forward to doing the agility training with Shanice!

I brought my very stubborn but cute french bulldog puppy to Supernova's Good Canine Citizen class. Shanice is great - she finds time to provide individual attention to all the dogs, giving tips on how to train to suit your own dog's personality and preferences, so that no dog is left out . She also videos lessons and whatsapp to the group so that you don't miss out on the training if you are away. She is also generous with her time and advice if you approach her with specific questions, and I found her to be more personal and genuinely friendly than some other trainers. Most of all, she really loves dogs and it comes through in her training methods. She makes the training fun and it is really an enjoyable experience. Excellent! I will be bringing my less stubborn pup for more lessons.

Our kirei, a shiba inu at 3yrs old had just completed a course of private training conducted by shanice at the comfort of our house. We are very happy that our choice of private training has helped kirei to learn to pee at home. This is crucial esp on days when we come hm late. Kirei is grass trained n is very adament not to pee at hm. Coupled with other problems, shanice seeks to provide us with feasible solutions to resolve our issues with kirei. Shanice is friendly and went beyond to train us on tricks and skills to manage our dog. We like how she is always come prepare with things to teach us. We are glad that we had chose supernova and we had learnt so much from her! Kirei woof with her heartfelt thanks for making her a better resident dog. Utimately, our mission is accomplished; kirei is able to pee at home now. This is our utmost priority so Thank you, Shanice!

Nino got a lot better after training with SuperNova. I was always afraid to bring him to the park until SuperNova encouraged and helped me with it.

As a first time puppy owner, I found the classes very useful for both regular obedience training but also understanding puppy behaviours. Peaches ( started at 4 months) was very young and I was worried about some of the different methods of training in the market. I dont think negative or forceful training is appropriate for a little baby! Shanice teaches with only positive reinforcement and Peaches learnt all the basic commands as well as started puppy socialisations during the class. What is very useful is not only the basic command trainings but also other important skills needed between puppy and family such as how to get your dog to accept grooming. Also she is a great help with any questions one may have about dogs! Training is great fun and bonding for both pup and handler and we have signed up for level 1 agility to continue learning and bonding!

Willow is a Singapore Special and typically mongrels are more attuned to the environment and can get very distracted. Through Shanice's class, she has learnt tricks, good focus and is able to do a sit anywhere she goes, even in a high distraction environment. Training her using Shanice's method has also become an enjoyable activity for both of us and provides great bonding. Shanice will also listen to queries we have eg problems we face at home and advise us exactly what we should do. Would recommend Shanice's positive training as it will benefit the owner and pup throughout its life and positive training has long term results! A trained dog is a good dog and an enjoyable dog to have. That is the essence of having a canine companion, which is to enjoy having one! Thanks Shanice!

QingQing is a over 9 yrs old ex-breeding dog that has been rescued last yr. After being kept in rusty cage and lack of interaction, her paws are all deformed and she will freeze whenever a harness & leash was put on her. As she's v food motivated, Shanice's training methods works v well for QingQing. Just within 5 mins, QingQing started walking on leash from her freeze mode. When comes to teaching commands, the initial voice command seems to be a challenge for QingQing until Shanice taught me the hand signal method. It works well and now I combine both voice command and hand signal when I want to get QingQing to sit, down, stand, stay, heel, come, leave it, free & go mat. I'm very impressed with Shanice's way of teaching. In 6 lessons, I was able to achieve so many commands and most importantly, got QingQing to be more responsive. Thank you so much, Shanice!
