Natasha McIntyre CPDT

Dog Behaviour, Training & Complex Skills Specialist.

Certified Professional, Positive reinforcement trainer

Natasha has always had a great connection with dogs, with her fondest childhood memories being with the family dog by her side and the training of 'Ralph' their working red kelpie. This early engagement was the foundation for Natasha's passion. After years of assisting people with training their dogs, she decided to pursue a career as a trainer completing the National Dog Training Federation course to become a qualified trainer and behaviourist

The Ndtf qualification allowed her to gain valuable experience and expand her knowledge into canine psychology. 

After an amazing opportunity to assist with training the cast (a couple of working red Kelpie's Phoenix and Blue) for 

the Red Dog prequel 'True Blue' she knew she was doing exactly what life intended for her and has never looked back.

Natasha instructs weekly puppy and advanced obedience classes for a local pet business. Combining her unique experience,

from the many rewarding experiences with behavior management, complex skills, environmental enrichment and puppy socialisation

has allowed her to work with many different dogs from different backgrounds.

It is with this experience you can be confident in Natasha's ability to create a specialised, personal training program

to bring out the very best in every individual dog and handler.
