Thinking of signing your dog up for training with John or purchasing your next gun dog from Nickel Creek Gun Dogs? Read what our past and current clients have to say:
Greg & Devin's "Lexi" 2016 Hunting Season

 
"Nickel Creek Gun Dogs are marvelous family dogs with great dispositions. With the shorthairs at Nickle Creek, you will find first class bird dogs with a ton of natural ability, endurance, and brains. We have been hunting shorthairs for over 40 years and the Nickel Creek bloodlines are simply exceptional! Kruser is a Nickel Creek bred shorthair that finished her Jr. Hunt title at less than a year of age. With a ton of bird drive, this Nickel Creek shorthair has been the talk of the most experienced dog handlers and pheasant hunters. Kruser has hunted wild birds throughout the Midwest and handles them all with class and style. This black ticked shorthair is an excellent example of top performing gun dogs available at Nickel Creek."
- Hinners Brothers ( Manning, Iowa & Highlands Ranch, CO)

"We have two dogs that we got from John, both have exceeded our expectations. John is open, honest, and more than fair in all his dealings. John & Fran both put the dogs and customers first."
- Ray and Lola Duffey (Aurora, CO)

“As the owner of not one, but two Nickel Creek shorthairs, I could not be more pleased with both the quality of the dogs and the quality of their training. Both of my shorthairs were hunting by 12 weeks of age, and have surpassed any and all expectations that I had of them. Aside from being superb hunters, these dogs have an excellent temperament and make wonderful family pets. I highly recommend the Nickel Creek bloodlines and John Augustine to any hunter looking for a top-notch hunting companion.”
- Troy Bloom (Aurora, CO)

"John is like the dog whisperer. In the time spent with John, not only did my dog learn a lot, so did I. He is a great trainer as well as a great friend."
- Jason (Aurora, CO)

"I purchased Hershey, my German Shorthair, from John in March of 2005. It was a pleasure to work with Hershey as she is very bright and energetic. John worked with Hershey some on his own, but mainly I worked with her myself or with John as support and guidance. John loves dogs and is very patient with them. He seems to know what the dog requires for advancement. I have great respect for John and his work with dogs. I would recommend John for short or long term training to anyone. He always has time to spend training and working with a variety of gun dogs."
- Gary Blundell (Parker, CO)
