What our Clients are saying about us
Really great training. Gina was fantastic at explaining why our dog has behavioural issues and helped all of us understand what we needed to do. The impact and benefit of the training was immediate and Fitch is much happier and we all are too. We continuing to work with the training guidelines she left us with and actually enjoying Fitch instead of worrying about his temperament all the time. A worthwhile investment.R.C., BATH, Somerset31st January 2017
Gina spent an hour talking to us without our dogs present, to find out what was needed from our sessions. She then asked us to introduce our Chihuahuas, who sniffed her for several minutes whilst she observed their behaviour. We had a great training session and are continuing the training daily. After Gina's visit we all felt so positive about the way our boys responded; they picked it up pretty quickly and have been much better in the week since the session. We took them to Center Parcs for a long weekend break, and they were very well behaved. :0) Looking forward to our session.L.M., Swindon, Wiltshire25th August 2016
Tackled problems straight away and Candy is a lot more responsive, and I feel as though I have some control from a highly excitable 11 month old.G.J., Cinderford, Gloucestershire22nd May 2016
We took Tilly first and she walked so much better with the harness and communicating in a way she understood. Sam went next and up until now we have had to use a gentle leader to stop him pulling which he hates as it goes over his nose, but he too got the hang of it quite quickly. I then took them together and couldn't believe how good they were, it has made walking the dogs a pleasure again instead of a battle. Just got to get recall sorted and we can go for lovely walks and enjoy them again. Thank you Gina.R.W., Ashbury, Wiltshire15th May 2016

It was clear from the moment my father and I met Gina that she had a real passion for her job. She immediately put us at ease and then took us through her presentation, which was hugely informative and enlightening! She explained the ethos of Bark Busters and the tools and techniques she would be teaching us - for we quickly realised it was us that needed to be educated!!! She gave us easy to follow advice and we were putting this into practice with almost immediate effect. The two and a half hours she spent with us, and Tara, flew by and the almost instant results were really encouraging. I would highly recommend Bark Busters to anyone who wants to see changes in their dogs behaviour. Thank you Gina and we very much look forward to OUR next lesson.
When you understand your dogs needs, you can communicate to them in a way that they understand. It's a two way thing, they soon realise what it is that you want from them. Looking forward to continuing to work with you.

The meeting was very informative, relaxed and professional. I felt I had gained a whole wealth of knowledge in a very short space of time. Just some of the small tips that I was so unaware off proved to be very productive. Lady responded very well to the training session and without a doubt you could see the improvement in her, as they say "The proof of the pudding is in the eating" the pudding was very good! I look forward to continuing Ladys education with the help and direction of Gina.

Wow, Gina was great. She understood the problems, and helped us through a few lessons, which Dexter learnt very quickly, we will be taking things slowly, and look forward to Gina's return for the next steps.
We thought Dexter was aggressive and howled because of separation anxiety.
Turned out that it is nervous aggressive, and the howling is for attention, what did we know!!

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.

Gina was very professional and explained and demonstrated everything very clearly. I was astounded by the results of our first session. Timm responded well to the new instructions and Gina made me feel confident that I can work with Timm every day to achieve our targets. Looking forward to our next session. Amazing results!

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!
