I contacted Natalie for training when I adopted an eight month old female Giant Schnauzer that had been kept in a cage with little human contact. Extremely frightened of any human especially when presented with food. In an enclosed garden would find the furthest point away from human contact and hide. Natalie was introduced to the dog and within three sessions had it eating from her hand.
The guidance and advice I received in a series of ten sessions produced progressive and significant improvement in the dog. This was an extremely stressed animal and is now a happy and contented member of a family. The dedication and intelligent actions taken by Natalie has turned a very damaged puppy into a maturing adult which although still slightly sensitive is now maturing into a lovely dog and I can now take her for walks in public places and let her off lead. Thank you for opening up her world! Regards, Martin Jones, Cheltenham.
I contacted Nat for help last year when I was at the end of my tether with my beagle, who had developed some compulsive behaviours that I felt were caused by jealousy towards my toddler. Nat spent about two hours with us talking through the problems and showing me simple techniques to manage & improve the behaviours. After just one session, Penny was a changed dog! I couldn’t believe how effective it was. I followed Nat’s straightfoward advice and a year on, my dog & daughter are best friends 🙂 Jo, Forest of Dean.
Nat comes in to see my puppy Skye twice a day, twice a week. So happy with the service I couldn’t recommend her enough. I have pictures sent of Skye to me while I’m at work and texts to tell me how much she has eaten and weather she had wet her crate! Nat is very helpful and is always full of good advice for any questions I need answering . I couldn’t recommend her enough. Amy, Gloucester.
Paw-Behaviour were great they looked after our two West Highland Terriers for two weeks whilst we were in Egypt the dogs were totally happy & we even spoke to them on the phone (the dogs), Nat is such a natural with animals & people we highly recommended her. Jon & Juliet Sheppard.
Dear Natalie & Andy, Just a brief note to thank you for caring for our dogs & other pets while we were on holiday. We found your mobile text reports helpful & reassuring. The professional standards that you offer and achieve were very impressive & we would have no hesitation in using & recommending your services again. It was lovely to return home to well cared for dogs which were not stressed by normal kennel care. They were happy & relaxed. You achieved much more than could ever be offered by even the best kennels. We are both delighted with your service. R & J Ward.
Nat walked my lively border collie and old lab cross for about 15 months while I was at work. Sadly, we had to say goodbye when we moved away from Gloucester. I was very keen that the dogs be allowed off the lead and it was wonderful that Natalie has the understanding in dog behaviour that gives her the confidence to do this. I bumped into her once with a group of 5 dogs, all off the lead, and it was like meeting the Dog Whisperer, humans and dogs happy and relaxed. She sees the funny side too, and used to chuckle at the antics of my old dog. Natalie always answered her phone or responded to messages immediately and was very flexible about any alterations to walk dates or times. This responsiveness has been difficult to find in my new location and I really miss her dependable service. Good luck for the future, Nat! Lynne.
We just wanted you to know that we can now leave Coco our cat for weekends & spells away safe in the knowledge that she is looked after lovingly and gently. Timid as she was, she loved Andy straight away, and to our delight we receive text messages throughout our absence to let us know she’s fine. Your tailor made visits are godsends to us. All three of us have no hesitation in recommending your service. Thank you Nat & Andy. Sue, Simon & Coco, Newent.
I have been using Nat and Andy to walk and help train my boxer pup Ronnie for some time now. At first, I was a bit worried about leaving him on his own with strangers and giving people I didnt know the keys to my house, but after our initial meeting was put at ease by their friendly attitude and professionalism and the fact that they are fully insured and police checked. Now Ronnie looks forward to his daily outings and I have no problems leaving him in their capable hands. They are always available on the phone and I can ring them anytime to see if hes ok, which is good news because being a puppy he can be a bit mischievous and is into everything! It is a very reliable service and I have no problems recommending them to anyone who is looking for someone to look after their pets or help train their dogs. Mike E, Gloucester.
We would like to say thanks for the brilliant service we received whilst we were away, and I hope our energetic dog and three cats didnt wear you out! We look forward to our next break knowing that our pets can be happily left at home, safe in your hands. Thanks again. Rob and Lynn.
Thankyou for looking after my cat and two rabbits while I was away and administering my rabbits eye drops, I know it can be a bit of a struggle but you coped admirably and Im pleased to say he is well on the mend. Thanks again, and I hope you are available when I go away in the future. I will recommend you to my friends. Mrs J Parfitt. Glos.
I have known Natalie for many years now and she regularly looks after my cat when Im away. Nat and Andy provide an excellent service and are very caring people, they always stick to my cats very strict diet as he is slightly over weight and only has three legs, so needs to be kept trim! I would like to recommend them to anyone who is looking for a responsible petsitter and I will continue to use their services for many years to come. Mr C Wickham. Stroud.
I have known Natalie and her partner Andy for about 8 years. They have been walking my very lively lab/collie cross for the past 5 years. They specialise in animal behaviour and any problems encountered. They have also house sat on a number of occasions and looked after both my dog Jess and cats Charlie and Tinks. Both are avid animal lovers, very reliable, responsible and completely trustworthy and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a petsitter or dog trainer. Mrs S Joyce, Gloucester.
