About Natalie

I started my journey with rescue dogs in 2006 at Nottingham Trent University, where I did two degrees with canine-specific modules focused on behaviour…

A Message from Natalie

“Kindness, compassion and time.”

 

When we are talking about reactivity and aggression, even in the mildest of cases, we have to think about how long it is going to take for you and your dog to change behaviour.

It can be difficult for us to break bad habits and it’s infinitely harder for our dogs, especially in the beginning while we are putting together the behavioural foundations. I will teach you how to communicate with your dog so that they will understand and make better choices. This takes kindness, compassion and time.

I advise that clients work with me for a minimum of three months in order for us to achieve the desired results. When it comes to behaviour training, there is no quick fix. It takes time and patience in order to change your dog’s behaviour for good. I want you to get the most out of our training sessions and enjoy a positive experience throughout. Once the recommended training is completed, you will have a happier and more content dog enabling you to cherish your new relationship together. By putting into practice all of the things you have learned together. 

How it works

All behaviour programmes offer behavioural consultations which are training sessions to change behaviour and will take place remotely, in-person (held in Nottingham NG12) or both. Depending on what is most suitable for your dog, it’s not always helpful or appropriate to see a dog in person and Natalie makes a decision based on what will get you the best results. This revolutionary way of training is proven to achieve faster and more effective results. In-person stooge dog sessions are available and held in NG12 at one of the Pawsitive Dog Behaviour venues.

Step 1 

Either book a behaviour assessment and training session so you can get started straight away with helping your dog, get help with this here. Or choose the behaviour programme that suits your needs, Natalie will help you choose.

Step 2 

Relax and get training through Natalie’s revolutionary behaviour programmes, combined with regular support through video submission feedback calls, for setting and reviewing training progress.

Cannot believe the difference the training has made to our puppy Trevor in just 2 sessions. Previous trainers... continually avoided to tackle the ‘resource guarding’ we were so badly requiring support with! We look forward to continuing further training with Pawsitive Dog Behaviour to help Trevor feel even more happy and settled. We are finally on our way to managing Trevor’s resource guarding with understanding and patience. Thank you so much already.read more

I contacted Natalie following a recommendation from Jon at Canine Assist - this, in itself, is testament to Natalie's... skill and experience, also her absolute passion for dogs. I had a foster dog (now rehomed) who had issues with just about everything outside and was reactive - in my home she was perfect! Natalie was able to assess her and was very supportive with lots of good advice to enable me to help her prior to her being rehomed. Natalie was there for me whenever I was unsure and was able to advise and reassure me. I believe she has also followed up with my girl's new owner, for continuity. I would highly recommend her, she knows her stuff, and is a lovely lady too! Rread more

Natalie was super helpful in explaining what our doggy needed and why he was behaving in certain ways! Simple dog... behaviours that we thought were normal were pointed out to us as nervous behaviours and it was really helpful.read more

Having never used the services of a dog behaviour consultant I wasn't sure what to expect. I needn't have worried,... Natalie explained the process in great detail and passion in advance. Our initial consultation lasted around 3 hours where we worked on scent training techniques to help overcome anxiety in our new rescue Border Collie. Yes, there's a lot to take in and I think we have a long journey ahead but Natalie's patience and deep knowledge of the subject has given us hope that we can make some positive behavioural adjustments. Looking forward already to our next follow up session.read more

Natalie has been absolutely amazing with my miniature schnauzer. He was very unfocused, hyper and barky on walks.... Walking him was far from a rewarding experience but Natalie has given me a wide range of different tips and games to use to keep him calm and I can see a massive improvement in his behaviour. Even better my dog cannot wait for sessions with Natalie and absolutely adores training with her. I can't thank Natalie enough for all her help.read more

I cannot thank Natalie enough for all the hard work she has put in with my reactive staffie cross. He has improved so... much that I even left him with a friend for the past week whilst I went away, something I would never have done previously, and he was a star for her on walks too!!! His behaviour towards other dogs has come on so much that he's not barking half as much as he was, his anxieties have reduced that he's taking food as a treat when out and about and he is a much calmer and happier dog. I cannot thank you enough xxread more
