Happy Tails Dog Training


Hello there!  My name is Natalie Buckley and I’m the owner of Happy Tails Dog Training.

I use positive methods and gentle techniques to make training permanent, long-lasting, and fun.   

I’m located in Santaquin, Utah and I service Utah County and the surrounding areas.  Get in touch today, and let’s start training your dog!


  • Did your new puppy chew your shoes?
  • Does your dog bark at the door or jump on  your guests?
  • Is it a struggle to get your dog to listen to you in public?
  • Does your dog pull on the leash or run away when you call them?

Good news – I can help you with that!

Turn your dog into the well-mannered, sweet, obedient dog you have always wanted!  With positive reinforcement training techniques, patience, and lot’s of love, training can be fun, rewarding, and long-lasting both for you and your dog! Have a look around and contact me if you have any questions or want to schedule a training session.  I am a private dog trainer and offer Dog Training in Santaquin, Payson, Salem, and the surrounding areas!

Any breed.  Any age.  Any problem.

We love Happy Tails Dog Training!  Natalie helped teach my family and I how to handle my puppy’s bad behavior and how to effectively train and reward him!  Being consistent with what she taught us has really improved my puppy’s behavior!

Natalie & Chumley

We’ve always wanted a puppy, but with 3 rambunctious children we just didn’t feel like we could handle it until we found Natalie. We love our puppy and Natalie is just a call or text away to provide us with help and encouragement when we need it.

Becky & Lillypup

I’m so grateful to Natalie and her training program! She was so supportive and kind with me as a first time dog owner and my shy puppy. We both learned so much from Happy Tails Dog Training!  I highly recommend Happy Tails Dog training to anyone who needs help with her puppy/dog!

Shaley & Shylah

Natalie was very helpful with my dog’s behaviors and my concerns.  Natalie gave us clear instruction and advice that worked immediately and Mercy responded very well.  I was hesitant to get a dog trainer after seeing people like Cesar Millan on TV but I would recommend Natalie every time!

Henry & Mercy

We loved Happy Tails!!! They were a great price, and so so good with our puppy! We learned so much and are so happy to have a well trained puppy now 🙂 Natalie is very experienced with all different types of dogs and knows so much! I would recommend happy tails to anyone and everyone!

Melissa & Walter

I was very nervous at first, as my breed of puppy can be challenging and is often viewed as aggressive or dangerous but the initial consultation sold me.  She helped me build a loving and loyal relationship with my puppy, and better yet helped me to feel more confident.  I would recommend Natalie to everyone!
