What our Clients are saying about us
Gina was lovely and was very clear on what she was saying. She answered all my questions and was very supportive and understanding. I have been set my homework to do with my dog and already in the first week I'm starting to see some positive changes in my dogs behaviour. We have started to work on leadership of my dog and showing her that I can take care of things for her. I'm looking forward to meeting Gina again to continue to learn how to deal with all of my dogs issues and anxieties and improve the way my dog reacts to the things she is very weary of.C.W., Bristol, Avon26th September 2017
Gina is a lovely lady and does a very professional and informative introduction we learnt so much from her in our first session. We have a 17 week old crossbreed puppy that had been removed from the litter too early and subsequently has many behavioural issues and is extremely hyperactive. Some of these problems were, excessive biting, jumping up, pulling on her lead, aggression, biting our clothes, biting the lead and your legs. After learning the techniques that Gina has shown us and her within 24 hours i could see such an improvement, that Luna is actually pleasant to be around. The advice that Gina gave us about the importance of a raw diet has been invaluable for a hyper active puppy as we were giving her store bought dry food, which was the equivalent of feeding a child junk food for every meal. I am 100% convinced that this has calmed her down even in the 24 hours she has been on it. We are continuing with the training advised daily and are really looking forward to our next visit with Gina to learn more. If you have any issues with your dog i would fully recommend that you contact her for advise and training.S.T., Kingswood, Bristol7th November 2016
In a word, 'Brilliant!' It wasn't the dog that needed training, it was me! After an extended period of illness when the dog was looked after by various friends and family, I had forgotten the correct way to give commands. Gina tuned into my dog and with immediate positive results. I can't thank her enough. I am now back to being a confident dog owner and we are both much happier for it. Thank you!K.J., Gloucester, Gloucestershire20th September 2016
We found the training very good and also easy to understand Gina was brilliant at explaining things to us it's only been a week and we have seen great changes still a way to go but very optimistic. The digging has stopped, only took 2 days, unbeliveable,looking forward to the next session,S.R., Trowbridge, Wiltshire21st August 2016
Thank God for Gina! Having trained me how to talk dog has changed our life at home, I had been thinking about getting a trainer in for years (Emma is now 8) and am so glad we have now. I am now in charge which has been surreal and Emma is calmer, much more chilled and so much more gentle. Of course, she is still trying to test her boundaries but I now know how to deal with these situations quickly and effectively. So if you're thinking about getting a trainer in but aren't sure, I'd say don't hesitate, the training is set to your dogs requirements and you'll see a change in the first visit...for me it was a shock and I felt bad for Emma when I realised I should have been more of a leader for her a long time ago. Do this for your pup, get the family involved too, my parents are enjoying her more now that she isn't playing them up also. Book the training today, you won't regret it!J.B., Bath, Avon24th July 2016

Gina was a Star from her point of entry into our home she knew what was wrong with Katy - She worked really hard with us nothing was rushed she made sure we were happy & that Katy understood what was expected of her as a much loved family pet. In fact I was so pleased & relieved that on leaving I had to give her a hug.

Gina was brilliant. She explained everything clearly. The boys responded really well. We've just started and practice is going really well. Can't wait for the next sessions

Excellent. Very insightful. Immediate impact and great tips. Looking forward to further guidance
5th June 2017Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Gina was brilliant! We needed as much training as the dogs, but she relaxed us and involved us in the "thinking" of processes and understanding WHY the dogs behaved as they did. The first session saw immediate change in the dogs (although sadly they had another fight) but Gina told us to expect one of the dogs to fight against the changes, so we hope that the continued work will help us solve the issues. We would recommend this company to anybody really wanting to sort out their doggy issues.

Gina was very friendly and she explained everything to us she also answered all our questions and gave us a lot of help and advise, she knew what the problem was almost as soon as she met my very vocal miniature Schnauzer Lola. We are looking forward to doing the exercises that she has left us to do, to solve the problems we've been having. What's good about Bark Busters, is you have the back up if you're struggling with anything, you can contact the trainer.
29th May 2017Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Gina was clearly very experienced and explained the Bark Busters method of training, the theory behind it and happily answered all my questions. She was very encouraging throughout and gave advice for every scenario that I threw at her!
Gina explained the psychology behind communicating with a dog, the importance of establishing leadership and giving them boundaries in which they can relax and 'just be a dog'.
Lola responded so well to the techniques and showed improvement within minutes without the need for treats or aids.

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.
