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!

Altogether amazing - Gina was very clear regarding what our problem was and how to remedy it. The results were quite remarkable our 14 month over excited slightly manic bull terrier who barked persistently and leapt up over all our visitors calmed down immediately. Gina demonstrated how to show her we were the pack leaders rather than her and she caught on pretty quickly. Since Gina's visit Phenny has barely barked at all, this compared with everytime anyone walked past our house, 20 or more times a day. We are going to have to work hard with the jumping up,it hasnt completely stopped partly because it's quite hard to get others to comply with our pleas to ignore her etc - come to think of it we'll have to train our visitors as when they do ignore her she tries really hard and more or less succeeds.
Gina's training has effected Phenny's general behaviour too, she is much calmer in every way and a delight to have around, so - a happy far more relaxed household. Thank you Gina

We are so pleased that we opted for this training. Our first session with Gina went really well. A friendly approach and clear and concise instructions left us feeling really positive about moving forward. Our puppy responded really well to Gina straight away and is already (less than 24 hours later) beginning to respond to us and what we learnt. We are looking forward to our next session. Thank you!
Using the tools and techniques that were shown ti you, you are now able to communicate to your dog in a way that they understand. Lovely to meet you all. I look forward to hearing from you with further progress reports.

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.
Consistency is key. They will learn by association. Keep up with the daily exercises and you will see the results that you are after. I look forward to hearing from you with their next progress report.

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,
Thanks for lovely comments. Look forward to working on next steps with you.

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.
When owners come on board and use the techniques shown to them to communicate to their dog/s, and put the time in that is needed, the results speak volumes. Enjoy your dog and keep up the great work you've been doing.

I'd love to thank Gina for coming around and helping Harvey as well as us. So patient and supportive and definitely put us at ease. Well worth the money. Thank you Bark Busters for sending her.
Starting training at an early age is really beneficial, it sets them on the right path. I look forward to working with you for the next stage of Harvey's training.

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!
Thanks for your feedback. Once you can communicate to your dog in a way that they understand, you have a happier less confused dog. So glad that you're now able to enjoy Emma.

Gina came in and made the day enjoyable and Mylo only had to be told a few times and picked up the one new way of control. I found it harder slipping into old habits, but Gina was here to guide me back.
The following day when on a field walk, a dog out of control, ran at Mylo and I was able to control the situation by voice control. I was so proud of my Dog.
Mylo is a very intelligent dog. With consistency and daily training you will see the benefits of having a lovely trained member of the family.

Gina Hinsley was brilliant with our two Mastiffs. The methods she used worked so well, it was unreal and was great because it's something we have never tried. For a first lesson I believe a lot of progress was made on our smaller mastiff as he is defiant and spoilt, our other mastiff responded straight away to Ginas methods and was wonderful to see. I have full faith in Gina that she is able to assess and resolve the issues that we have with our mastiffs which gave us the confidence to programme in between visits. Would defiantly recommend to anyone with issues no matter how big or small! Wonderful experience very eye opening and reassuring!
Once you take the stress away from the dogs they are able to relax more and you can refocus them Keep doing the exercises shown and then we can work on their lead work.
