When training a dog, whether that is a pet dog in obedience or some of the more demanding competitive dog sports, nutrition is a critical factor, not only to overall health and longevity, but physical fitness, comfort and learning ability.
Natural Instinct provide a Biologically Appropriate Raw Food for dogs and cats providing a balanced nutritional and delicious diet. Their recipes are packed full of the highest quality, fresh produce. Ingredients range from a wide variety of human grade 100% British raw meats with bone and offal to a selection of fresh vegetables. Natural supplements are also included packed full of additional vitamins, anti-oxidants and nutrients such as sea kelp, Scottish salmon oil and spinach.
In keeping with the Guild’s ethos, Natural Instinct are a customer focused, caring and understanding company with the very best support for their clients – both four legged and two! Their product knowledge, veterinary support and love for dogs is second to none and we are proud to work alongside such a forward thinking and compassionate group of people.
At the guild we actively support raw feeding for health, longevity, mental stimulation and optimum physical fitness.
Our relationship with Natural instinct means that we can refer our dog training and behaviour clients to specialist veterinary and nutritional advisors who can discuss in detail the best and most appropriate way of feeding for the individual dog.
Guild of Dog Trainers CEO
Internationally renowned for her knowledge and expertise in dog training and behavioural modification.
“As chairwoman of the prestigious Guild of Dog Trainers, I fully endorse and welcome the Guild’s association with Natural Instinct . We share a holistic caring view of canine welfare and stringent ethical practices. I look forward to embracing future challenges and jointly promoting responsible dog ownership.”
Sue Williams Bsc, MGoDT(MT), MCFBA,
Natural Instinct’s veterinary supporter, Sue Armstrong, knows all too well from the many behavioural cases that she sees in practice just how important diet can be. These problems include hyper excitability, aggression, poor concentration levels and even the way in which animals are accepted in the home by their human guardians. In these situations dietary change has radically altered the outcome for some animals, in addition to a course of training.
“The more dog trainers out there who understand these principles the better it will be for dogs. Natural Instinct’s association with The Guild reinforces their commitment to help educate both the public and professionals alike for the good of all our dogs.”

- Raw feeding; My Personal Experience – Ross McCarthy
As a Canine Behaviour Consultant, my own dogs have to be ambassadors for what I do. They have to behave and have to be well trained.
