I am a qualified dog behaviour and training professional who understands that the relationship with your dog is special and important for all that you do together.
That is why I want to help support human-dog relationships to be their best. Some relationships need extra care, and I have a particular interest in working with and helping people who live with anxious, fearful or over excited dogs; rescue dogs; and working breed dogs living as companion pets.
My dog Molly is my inspiration, friend, teacher, student, partner. She brings me joy and I do my best to make her happy. Our time together hasn’t all been easy. Molly was rescued from a regional pound and it took some time to get to know each other. We needed to learn how to read, listen and understand each other. Like all good relationships it took commitment and effort to make it work.

Personal training plan
Your relationship with your dog is specific to you, so you need a plan that is tailored to meet your unique needs.
"We worked on the exercises and she is so much better behaved. There were a few warm days, I couldn't resist going to the beach, so I took Mala on lead to a calmer section of the beach to just have a walk/play in the water and she was very good. She was constantly making eye contact.
We had a few guests over and she did not jump up on them either. Thank you so much for your time, really appreciate your help and tips! "
“Natalie came to our rescue when we needed extra help training our 9 month old cocker spaniel called Maisie. Natalie’s assessment of Maisie’s needs and her tailored training program has given us the tools to help Maisie, and her follow up with us was much appreciated. We would highly recommend Natalie to others and we thank her for her support and encouragement.
We truly cannot thank you enough for helping us with Maisie."

"Natalie from Mojema helped me understand what my dog has been trying to tell me and showed me how to respond in a way that my dog understands me. It was easy to do, improved our communication, and stopped us both from getting unnecessarily frustrated. We are so much happier and it is a joy being together. "
— Anita - Scruffy
"Chewy is a great dog at home but when we left the house he would lose it whenever he saw another dog. I got plenty of free advice from other dog owners passing us by when Chewy was barking and lunging at the end of the lead. Natalie helped me understand to see the world from Chewy's perspective and now I am aware of ways I can help Chewy out when he is not feeling confident about his surroundings. Thanks Nat."
— Carl - Chewy
