29th May 2017Gina Hinsley dealt with:
The training is going well. Coco has taken really well to not being the leader. Bailey has been up & down the stairs whereas before Bailey would stand at the bottom of them & shake, absolutely amazing & they are doing a lot less barking. Sienna has followed commands really well but has always been the more relaxed one out of the 3 of them. A little more hole digging from Sienna but overall I'm really pleased to have been involved with Gina Hinsley as our trainer. Thank you so much for your help in the training.

Lynn was fantastic. She was very reassuring about the training we had already done and gave us some great tips. She gave us a great training plan and was very to the point with what we needed to do with Bailey. I would very much recommend her!
27th May 2017Aaron Noble dealt with:
Aaron was fantastic and Lacey took to her training well. Lacey is a very excited 9 month old but Aaron was great with her and understood how to deal with Lacey. We as a family are amazed at what she can do and all it needed was us to understand how to do this which Aaron showed us. Lacey is still a work in progress but is learning everyday. We look forward to Aaron's next visit.

26th May 2017Sharon Chapman dealt with:
I cannot recommend Sharon enough - she has been fantastic! When we first saw her my husband and I were struggling to contain our puppy's excitement and he was proving to be a real challenge. With a few simple techniques, Sharon really helped us keep him calm around the house and teach him how to be a part of our family in the right way!! He's still bonkers but at least it's in a more contained fashion, and when we allow, not when he chooses!! Sharon has always been on hand by phone or email for any other questions we have had and I have found it reassuring to know I have someone to help me - Albee is the first puppy I have had sole responsibility for so I wasn't really sure what to expect, and it has been great having someone to help even if it is just to tell me I am doing it right.
It's not just the initial problems that Sharon has helped with, and she has also come up with great ideas to help other issues that have developed as Albee has got older.
It is obvious that Sharon does not see this as just a job and really takes an interest in you and your dog. She wants to help you get the best out of them and build up a relationship so you can really enjoy your dog. Through helping me to enjoy my dog more, Sharon has also given me the confidence to try things that I never thought I would do - we do obedience and agility classes and hope to compete very soon (although Albee is recovering from surgery on his knees so this is on hold for now).
I would not hesitate in recommending Sharon to others - she never made me feel like any question I asked was silly, or that any of my dog's problems were down to me, and she really took time to find out about me and my dog and had a genuine interest in helping us succeed.
Albee with his cute eyes and face was initially making life hard for his owners. But once shown how to communicate with him and guide him into making the right decision he soon became a well behaved member of their family. Watching their relationship grow has been an absolute pleasure. I know you are all going to continue to learn together and have lots of fun.
26th May 2017David and Anthony Swindells dealt with:
Our first session was very informative and helpful with clear explanations and demonstrations. Anthony's experience with dogs shows through and he has given me the confidence to continue with Polly's training knowing that I can contact him with any problems.
I am sure that with Anthony's help I will be able to complete the training successfully.
24th May 2017Estelle Jackson dealt with:
Estelle showed us where we were going wrong in how we treated Max, we were letting him take the lead and falling into he doggy trap of giving him the impression he was the boss. Quite easily she told us what to do and was very hands on in showing us the correct way to carry out the orders.

24th May 2017Kevin McDonnell dealt with:
Kevin's training session was excellent. He explained the reasons behind my dogs behaviour in a clear, informative and easy to understand way. He had a calm approach that helped to put us at ease and reassured us that our dogs behavioural issues could be addressed, and through the exercises undertaken we immediately saw a significant improvement in our dog, and were able to take her to our local park taking her off lead for the first time in many months. I would happily recommend Kevin to anyone looking for help with their dog.
24th May 2017Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lyn was very professional, explained every thing to me before and as we where traning Bertie explained about diet etc, we discovered he liked his crate which has given me great relief when I have to leave him, I was shown how to walk Bertie and him to behave outside also door practise stopping him racing to the door ripping my mail, and let him see I'm the leader of the pack. Great day great tips which with perstistance doing well.

22nd May 2017Gina Hinsley dealt with:
My dogs still have a long way to go, but already I am seeing a vast improvement in their behaviour. They still bark at strangers coming in but settle much quicker than before, whereas they would continue barking and growling before. They seem calmer and less anxious by strangers coming into the house. They are listening more and beginning to let me lead them rather than the other way round. The STAY command is beginning to sink in and when told to get down from the window they will get down more often than not, also they are less bothered and aggressive than previously. On their walk today they seem calmer and aren't barking at everyone like they did, but I have taken them separately to get each dogs full attention. Only had two visits so far, but already I feel more confident and happy as do my dogs. Gina has been very informative and demonstrated each technique so I fully understand. Best money spent on my dogs and worth it.
