Pawsitive Training Nottingham/Derby

Behaviour Consultant and Dog Trainer

Good Citizen Rosettes
Debbie Goodwin Pawsitive Dog Training

Hello and welcome to the Pawsitive Training Nottingham/Derby website.

I have over 20 years of experience in the behaviour and training of dogs and am a member of the Kennel Club Accredited Instructors. I have a Diploma in Canine Behaviour, and am a full member of INTO Dogs, ICAN and The Pet Professional Guild.

My passion is working with dogs to help them reach their full potential in a fun, fear free way, whether they are working and competing dogs, fearful rescues or family unit members.

I work completely on a positive reward basis, and as an ex Veterinary Nurse I also understand the anatomical and physical restraints that some dogs have, and will work with owners to overcome the problems. I have a special interest in arthritic dogs as per my Canine Arthritis Management qualification.

As both a trainer and a behaviourist, I am fully insured and offer both group classes or one to one behaviour assessments and training.

Recent Testimonial

We got in touch with Debbie soon after we adopted Martha, a gorgeous but very nervous and overwhelmed Romanian rescue dog. From the first phone call, she gave us confidence and support that calmed our anxiety and after just a few visits helped us transform Martha in to a confident, adventurous dog who now fully loves life. We cannot recommend Debbie enough... her passion for the dogs she works with, her knowledge, expertise, tailored support and advice are amazing. Debbie has played a major part in giving our Martha a whole new, exciting life.
