Really clear instructions and already I can see an improvement after only one day, although my throat hurts from the BAH!

Trainer note from Tina:
Two dogs having been waiting for their education! They both responded extremely well to the work and with support I can picture them running in a park with no aggression to other dogs. The male had also become overprotective of his owner and had decided that family members cuddling her, people handing items to her were a huge threat to her! We are going through a desensitising process with general obedience to take away his belief that he should be protecting her and his female companion dog.

Tina Edwards dealt with: Recall or not coming when called Separation Anxiety

Excellent - very informative and practical advice given.

We discussed the dogs in depth and then moved on to working through techniques with them.

Trainer note from Tina:
Two Greek rescue dogs. One is turning out to be a very clever escape artist! Both have settled in well to their new home, but the owner wants to make sure that she is giving them the best possible new start. Both dogs, having been strays are used to making their own decisions on matters, have been supporting themselves by scavenging and are not used to being confined on a lead. We are therefore working on the basics of lead work, recall and general response to normal commands and with support these two dogs will be a credit to the rescue and their new home.

Tina and her work has proved a great success with Belle. She helped a lot and provided more than we expected, returning to check progress. We could not have had a better experience.

Trainer note from Tina:
A young excitable Labrador who almost ended up in rescue due to her "loopy" behaviour. She was sometimes nervous, barking at unusual situations/people, over friendly and jumping up at visitors. She responded so quickly once she understood the new way of communicating. Such a lovely dog, she should now grow into a lovely family pet.

It was all very informative, learning new things and correcting other things we thought we knew.

Trainer note from Tina:
A large young husky who already had very good obedience, having help from a very well trained companion! He had started to bully other dogs when off lead and his recall needs some help too. A lovely natured dog, because of his breed he needs absolute consistency in his training to get to the level his owner wants.

Jasper is just over a year old with a puppy's enthusiasm for everything - but is already a large and strong GSD. We rehomed him from Battersea but soon realised that he had had limited training and socialisation in his previous home. Tina has taught us a lot of very useful techniques for training Jasper includng walking on the lead and not barging past on the stairs. Tina's approach is very practical and she doesn't rush the training - we have had a couple of sessions already and she will be coming back again to help us with socialisation soon.

Trainer note from Tina:
A beautiful gentle boy with family, friends and visitors, he becomes over protective and anxious when on lead with dogs and passers by. His behaviour indicates that he hadn't had suitable socialisation when a pup, so has to learn that his owners should be making the decisions about the outside world and that he learns to trust them and not make his own.

Tina Edwards dealt with: Hyperactivity Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Puppy Management Recall or not coming when called

There has been a marked improvement with Mabel and we continue to work together with Tina on Mabel's behaviour.

Trainer note from Tina:
Mabel is a very pretty whippet who has calmed down tremendously since we started training. She was stealing, jumping up, getting agitated when left and had no recall! I am soon to visit again to work more on recall now that the foundations are in place.

Tina was a great help. She gave us some advice about his diet which seems to have improved his temperament. She gave us some useful tips on how improve his walking on the lead and how to stop him barking in the garden. She educated us on his behaviour and enabled us to understand why he does things. I would recommend her and wish we had found her sooner.

Very calm explanation of training methods.

Genuine care and dedication to the dogs and the task at hand of training me.

Still a work in progress but each day I'm gaining the pack leader position and my dogs are listening more to me instead of me to them.

Trainer note from Tina:
A very experience owner who already had great control of her two large dogs, but had a problem with the female on lead as she had started barking and behaving badly when seeing other dogs. Off lead she greeted dogs in a friendly manner as did the large male. We worked on making sure the their owners gained more respect from the dogs with some simple work indoors initially and then outside on lead one at a time and towards the end of the session both dogs together. They responded extremely well and the feedback so far is very positive. I'm looking forward to seeing their progress at my next session!

Thornton has shown a significant improvement in his behaviour and, although it is a long journey for us to get to where we need him to be, it is really pleasing to see that he is on the right road. Tina showed us some excellent exercises and was full of encouragement, even when we needed a bit of training at times!

Trainer note from Tina:
Thornton is a lovely rescue Chocolate Labrador who although "obedient" was lunging and showing nervous aggression when meeting/seeing dogs. On seeing him walk I spotted that his frame was misaligned as he was walking slightly sideways. A dog in discomfort from a sore back, will not want to meet dogs as any interaction/play might cause pain. That has been treated by a chiropractor with great results - he is now walking in a straight line! At my last appointment I took my dogs two dogs to be stooges and was able to help the owners to teach Thornton to trust them and their decisions and he ended up ignoring my two and keeping his focus on his owners.

We were slightly apprehensive when we booked our first session, because we knew we would be the ones that Tina would be teaching and not so much Jazz. As soon as Tina arrived she put us at our ease and was brilliant with her techniques. She didn't make us feel uncomfortable and we really enjoyed practicing what we had learnt with Jazz. All the information provided was really helpful especially the information about controlling Jazz on the lead, managing her barking and Jazz's diet. Jazz looks really healthy and has really settled with the training – she even enjoys it and its lovely to see. We couldn't recommend Tina highly enough! She is a lovely lady, very knowledgeable and easy to understand, and she has a clear and concise approach to training. Thank you Tina! 17th April 2014. Just a quick update on Jazz. We went away for a few days staying in a dog friendly pub and she behaved brilliantly. She had a few moments but with the techniques we have now she is quickly controlled. By the end of our break she wasn't taking much notice at all of the dozens of dogs surrounding her.

Trainer note from Tina:
Jazz is a lovely young rescue GSD and like all GSD's very smart!! When I first worked with her and her family, she was doing a lot of guarding/barking and pulling like a train on lead and getting over excited when spotting dogs. I did a lot of calm control training with her owners and started teaching lead control so she would walk on a loose lead focusing on her owner and not looking for dogs! At my last visit I took my two dogs to help her owners to watch for changes in her body language and work at keeping her focus and getting her to ignore other dogs when asked to do so.
