I run classes and private sessions. A little about me - I am a Dog Trainer and Behaviourist. I am a Dog Parkour UK instructor and assessor , DMWYD Trick Dog instructor, DMWYD Canine Fitness Coach, Canine Hoopers World instructor and assessor and I am part of many networks such as the Dog Training Collage, ICAN member of the Pet Professional and Guild, INTO Dog’s member and a Natures Menu Raw expert.What can you expect from training with Natalie Kaye?
Not only will you meet a skilled local dog trainer
of canines all ages and sizes, you can experience a friendly, approachable and honest person who has a huge passion for dogs from all walks of life.
I have spent years studying and implementing a huge variety of skills ranging from diet & nutrition
, behaviour & phobias
, obedience training
through to canine first aid
and PTSD in dogs
. This certainly shows through my results and client success stories
.What is the mission and aim of NK9 Dog Training?
Our mission here at NK9 is to help every dog and their owner have a stronger bond by teaching and applying techniques that bring out the best in the dogs behaviour. A smart & healthy dog is a happy dog.
The reason I launched the dog training business was mainly because I wanted to take my passion for dog training further and serve my local city (Leeds) and surrounding areas (Halifax & more). I had many locals asking how I managed to bring such great obedience to my dogs, to which I offered to help them and the word slowly got out.Does NK9 use positive reinforcement in training?
I believe the best way to get the most out of training is to use positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement is the addition of a reinforcing stimulus following a behaviour that makes it more likely that the behaviour will occur again in the future.
When a favourable outcome or reward occurs after an action, that response or behaviour will be strengthened.
