About Niki

View more of Niki and her dogs on her YouTube channel:


Niki is the Director of Drage Dogs

She is a passionate and energetic agility coach and competitor and has been competing in agility for over 10 years and her passion for the sport continues to grow.

Most recently Niki became interested in the OneMind Dogs system ( and started researching the methodology intensely.


The focus of the OMD system on body language and connecting with the dog really spoke to Niki, so she decided to learn the techniques and foundations through online learning and it wasn’t long before she noticed the impact this methodology had on her relationship with her dogs.


After several months of training with the OMD philosophy of “Connect, Commit, Cue” and learning and developing every day thanks to the online learning available at the OMD website, Niki attended an OMD seminar in Sydney with her competition dog Flow and her OMD addiction grew even stronger! Finally Niki had found a way to communicate with her dogs and let them know where they are going next, it really felt as though they were running courses as one.


Before long the effects of OMD training were apparent in Niki’s competition results. Not only did runs start to feel smooth and almost effortless, but the amount of clear rounds and first places increased significantly as she learned to listen to her dogs on course.

Niki will be forever grateful to OMD for the way their methodologies completely changed her attitude in agility and her relationship with her dogs. So in January 2015 when the opportunity to attend an OMD coach pilot program came up, Niki jumped at the chance to help share this wonderful philosophy with others. After an intensive week long training program in Finland with the OneMind team members, Niki is now a qualified OMD coach and is sharing the OMD methodology with students around Australia who are keen to get mentally connected with their dogs!
