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

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 can help you choose). Please book a FREE Consultation call here to get help with this here.​ We take payment and send you the electronic forms via email to be filled out online.

Step 2 

Press submit on the electronic forms to get them back to us, take up to 3 short videos of your dog’s behaviour on your phone which can be sent to Natalie on WhatsApp. 

Step 3 

Relax and get training through Natalie’s revolutionary, online behaviour consults, in person in Nottingham NG12, or a mixture of both online and in person, depending on what is most suitable for your dog. Combined with regular support through video submission feedback calls,  for setting and reviewing training progress.

What happens next

Natalie will send you and your vet a copy of the behaviour assessment, and you will get a fully tailored training plan that you will be working through together on a regular basis within 14 days of the first consult.


All behaviour programmes offer behavioural consultations which will take place either on a remote, in-person basis or a mixture of both in-person sessions (held in Nottingham NG12) and remote sessions. This is dependant on what is most suitable for your dog, is 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.

Our Behaviour programmes are tailored to your needs

Working with

your Vet

Our veterinary referral form is signed by your vet after they have completed a health check on your dog. The health check will rule out any unseen medical issues that may contribute to your dog’s behaviour. Most vets in the UK are familiar with this system and will be happy to work with you to help your dog.

We are always here to help
