“Passion for animals is at the heart of our company and good welfare is the foundation for all we do”

Pawsitive Thinking


After experiencing many ups and downs with our own animals, we truly understand the love, time and expense involved in supporting pets to lead their best lives. We know what it's like to have challenging times caring for your four legged friends and lengthy searches to find ways to help, we've been there! We've also wasted money on pointless purchases and experienced the frustration of hollow shopping experiences with big chain stores. Following decades of helping people with their pets through education, Pawsitive Thinking has been grown to further support animal lovers, to offer tried and tested products all in one place and to provide a meaningful, enjoyable experience at purchase and beyond. We love to help people nurture enjoyable, successful relationships with their pets and want to help them avoid the costly pitfalls.

You may just want to go the extra mile for your four legged or feathered family! 

Whatever your reasons, we are here to offer you inspiration and help with the training, care and enrichment of your pets.

Pawsitive Thinking has been created following a life long passion for animals by it's owner, Natalie Bucklar. Natalie has a BSc (Hons) and an MSc in Equine Science and during her career she has produced research for Team GB at Olympic level, lectured to degree standard and written many articles for magazines & newspapers. With a passion for animal behaviour & welfare, Natalie has trained horses & horse people for over 25 years. She has been part of the support team for elite competitors at Badminton Horse Trials, the Royal International Horse Show and the Horse Of The Year Show. After owning a saddlery shop for ten years, Natalie started the first ethical, force-free riding school in the UK called East Devon Riding Academy. The academy ran for 9 successful years before the horses were ready for a quieter life and they are now enjoying their retirement in the fields at Pawsitive Thinking HQ. Natalie has lived with dogs since the age of 5 and has re-homed many different breeds who were previously homeless or unwanted. The latest additions to the family are a Border Collie and a Lurcher, both from local rescue charities. You can follow their antics on our social media pages!

Natalie holds a qualification in Canine Concept Training, has studied with The School of Canine Science and continues to study Canine Behaviour & Ethical Training. Over the years Natalie has been guardian to numerous other pets and she currently shares her home with horses, dogs, pet goats, sheep, chickens and guinea pigs.
