What our Clients are saying about us
Much improvement even in the first week of training. Have changed her food gradually from additives and wheat etc. We find she is respecting us now. I am more relaxed with the lead which makes her more relaxed also. Still sometimes tugs but I correct this. Thank you so much. Life is a lot better.A.M., Corsham, Wiltshire4th March 2018
Gina has really helped us understand Max's behaviour. She suggested a change to a raw food diet would help him with his hyperactivity and we were amazed at the results, he is so much calmer now. Following her training advice he is also becoming less of the leader of the pack and is listening to us more. Early days but so glad we contacted Barkbusters.A.P., Whitminster, Gloucestershire29th November 2017
Gina was very helpful and got us started on the right track with our puppy. We still have a little ways to go, but the improvements are wonderful. Our puppy can stay when commanded, she doesn't jump at us when we are eating or preparing food. When she does get excited, we can give the commands to calm her down. Thank you Bark Busters.G.B., Bath, Somerset9th April 2017
Due to mine and my husbands work timetable dog training classes were not an option, we have used before but were never impressed with outcome . Searching Google for Puppy/Dog Training, up popped 'Bark Busters' home training for dogs I contacted them to receive a prompt professional reply from Gina .We are so impressed and happy of the guidance we were given by Gina which has resulted in incredible results with our 23 week old puppy within 6 days doing just 15 mins training a day , worth every penny , makes sense to have your dog trained in the environment it lives . Thank you Gina we look forward to your support over the next year.S.P., Gloucester, Gloucestershire20th August 2016
Thank you for coming out yesterday. Lee (my husband) could not believe it when he walked in the door from work and he wasn't bombarded by jumping dogs. We also had a stress free walk this morning even though we saw two other dogs. I cannot thank you enough, thank you Gina.J.P., Hull, West Yorkshire19th January 2016

Gina was very helpful, and I found it to be incredibly useful, so far so good, haven't done the noise desensitising yet, as he is a more confident dog at the moment.

Easy to understand instructions.
Very patient with dogs and us as humans.
We certainly have seen an early improvement.

Gina was great with us and taught us the techniques to use on Poppy when she mis-behaved. We are still getting used to doing it but need to do it much less each day. She is much calmer but is still our bouncy ball of energy - just quieter!
We thought she was excited when people came to the house and Gina taught us that by looking at her body language she could tell that she was actually frightened and felt the need to protect us. We are taking away that feeling by showing her we are in charge and she certainly seems much calmer when people come in with almost no barking at all.

Gina is very good with both myself and topsy. She's very clear, and explains everything so you understand what is needed and why. Soon, Topsy will see me like she sees Gina and I, with Gina's help, will have her trained, instead of her having me so well trained.
18th March 2018Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Gina was amazing. She showed us several training techniques that put us back in control of a dog who thought he was head of security. We noticed an improvement immediately. We will be continuing all the training methods over the next few weeks and hopefully by then we will have a calm and relaxed house again. We can’t thank you enough Gina!
14th March 2018Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Gina was most helpful. Pointing out things that we were doing. It's fairly obvious that Alf has us wrapped round his little paw without us realising it! We have seen an improvement in the first few days, obviously it is going to take a little while to turn the situation round, but he is listening more already. So far so good, thank you Gina!

Gina was an excellent trainer, pickle is going to be a challenge she has a very strong will. She is trying to be my boss but I will keep trying the tactics that Gina showed me. I look forward to seeing her again.

Our session with Gina was incredibly helpful. We learned so much and have already seen a change in Fergus' behaviour. We still have a long way to go but Gina helped us to retrain ourselves to help our dog to be less anxious around strangers and to understand our family structure. She is patient, understanding and highly experienced. I have already recommended her to my friends and family. Thank you Bark Busters
25th February 2018Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Gina clearly knows her stuff: we were under no illusions that it is us that need training- the dogs behaviour is driven by ours, and Gina has helped us see how we can change.
We were amazed at how quickly some of the changes yielded results.
I really like the no-treat approach to dog training: so far it has worked and it means training can happen whenever the opportunity presents itself rather than only when you have treats. I also like the cost certainty: i felt confident signing up that this isn’t going to turn into a bottomless pit.
It is early days yet but already I have full confidence that we will get to where we want to thanks to The Bark Busters approach and in particular with Gina’s guidance.
Rome wasn’t built in a day so I have only ticked what already works and will come back later and update when other issues have been resolved.
