The Dog Box Team

Natalie Binedell

Natalie Binedell is the Owner, founder and manager of The Dog Box. She has always wanted to work with animals. She and her dogs growing up were inseparable. From playing dress-up, reading stories too and being their hairdresser (skew styles and all), they were truly best friends. Starting with very little and minimum resources, the Dog Box dream became a reality. After going through rehabilitation with their dachshund that was diagnosed with IVDD, she knew she wanted to get involved in rehabilitating and helping dogs. The Hydrotherapy became a part of The Dog Box’s plans. She continuously strives to improve her skills and knowledge.
