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

Tina was excellent - very easy to follow and also very understanding of our various issues/problems. She worked really well with me, my husband and also my young children to ensure we knew how to handle our dog and take back control!

Trainer note from Tina:
A young Border Terrier who was treating the children like other puppies, chasing and biting at their feet when they were playing in the garden. The whole family took on board all the information and training methods I showed them, and helped the children to understand the best way to behave to stop her from getting over excited with them. Next session will deal with her trying to escape from the front door!!

Tina Edwards dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called

Very impressed. Kind, gentle teaching produced instant results. We have the back up of a lifetime guarantee so were a different set of circumstances to occur, our adaptation would be supported.

Trainer note from Tina:
A standard poodle who had been rescued, a few year's ago, but had decided to get attention by being very vocal and physical! Not aggressive at all, but behaving like a badly mannered child! We changed the method of communication to voice and body language and he naturally understood this so was able to respond by refraining from his previous naughty behaviour and got lots of praise and attention on his owners terms and not his!

Tina Edwards dealt with: Destructive chewing that results in destruction of furniture, woodwork etc Hyperactivity Puppy Management

Tina helped us with Charlie, our new Chocolate Labrador puppy who was proving to be a handful. He was into chewing everything he could lay his paws on(including a new pair of slippers!) as well as being very excitable a lot of the time. We needed general advice on puppy management such as toilet training and puppy etiquette.

Trainer note from Tina:
A gorgeous cuddly boy, he's going to be a BIG dog! His owners are first timers, so need support, advice and training techniques to help ensure that he becomes the dog they wanted. His playbiting had already created a trip to the doctors, so we worked on teaching him not to use his mouth on humans nor their clothes, we showed him that jumping up wasn't wanted and that he got his fuss and cuddles when he had four feet on the ground. I'm looking forward to seeing him again to see his progress.

Tina Edwards dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Other

Tina's advice was invaluable. We have gone from a very stressed household with two anxious, worried little dogs to a much calmer environment. All the hard work was definitely worth the effort. We are now moving onto the next stage of training.

Trainer note from Tina:
Two very nervous dogs who were terrified of visitors and anyone they saw on walks. We changed their regime so they had a cosy crate to retreat to and I taught their owner how to take more control without feeling sorry for them, thereby helping them to feel more secure. Leadwork is now being worked on and with consistent training these two dogs will be much happier and less anxious.

Tina Edwards dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Pulling on the Lead Sibling Rivalry - aggression or fighting between dogs in the same household Separation Anxiety

I was getting to the end of my tether with Minty and didn't know if he was even trainable, but even after the first day of training I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We just have to learn to be too dogs and Tina has given us the techniques to do this.

Trainer note from Tina:
Minty is a Jack Russell living with another Jack Russell who was fine. Minty, was very aggressive to visitors, started off the barking at postman/door pulled on the lead, fought with his companion and had separation anxiety! Almost the full hand! He wasn't an easy dog to help, but his owners despite being busy with work and a small toddler were totally committed and on my second visit I was really pleased with how much progress they had made. They can now control barking and are giving Minty lots of confidence as they are now making all the decisions, not him!!

Tina Edwards dealt with: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Pulling on the Lead Recall or not coming when called Separation Anxiety

Very impressed! The change in Sam after just a few short hours is quite remarkable. Sam responded extremely well to the training. He is already calmer, more relaxed and so eager to please. The effectiveness of the 'Bah' is amazing. I would highly recommend Tina.

Trainer note from Tina:
Sam is a young Labradoodle and rather shy/timid and a little anxious on first meeting with people. He barked and growled at me to go away! I allowed him time to get brave to sneak over for a sniff while I was explaining and taking a full history of Sam and his behaviour and by the end of the session we were the best of friends. Being a clever dog, he picked up very quickly with the new form of communications I showed his owner which involved the natural methods that dogs use to communicate with each other, i.e. body language etc. He was a delightful pupil and he and his owner will have great fun doing the daily training.

I'm not sure what we were expectating, but it certainly surpassed everything that we were! The training was actually more for us and we now feel a lot more confident to (re)train Watson.

Trainer note from Tina:
Watson was a rescue originally found as a stray, he is a lovely boy, but was a terror for chasing and biting the mower, watering cans and his owners found it difficult to don ANY gardening. Also his leadwork was making life very difficult as they lived close to a busy high street. I like to ensure that the owners are given and can carry one with the training I show them right from the start as it's important that daily work is done to achieve results. Watson is doing well, but he and his owners can achieve so much more with support.

The techniques we learnt have started to have an effect....some things have worked really quickly, Buddy walks brilliantly to heel already and is much calmer in general since we have changed his food and have been working with him...we still have a way to go but am confident with persistence we will get there... He hasn't sat on the sofa or gone up the stairs before us since the first visit....

We covered loads on that first visit, thanks Tina and we will def be calling you back for a few more tips after a bit more training...

Trainer note from Tina:
Buddy had various issues, that were all connected. He had separation anxiety, nervous aggression (he had bitten people) and believed that his job was to alert his owners to every sound he heard! He responded well to the training and his owners have said they need little more time to continue with basics before we move on to the next level.

Rio is a different dog. We changed his diet which has made things better and on the 2nd visit I had him walking alongside another dog with not aggression.

Trainer note from Tina:
Rio is a very large GSD x Pyrenean Mountain Dog so being aggressive to other dogs and pulling on the lead was a big problem for his owners. He is very sweet natured and fine with humans, loving a fuss, but would lunge at dogs on lead pulling over his owner. His barking at the fences surrounding his home was a nuisance. We have worked on general basic control, teaching him to respond quickly to commands and using the calm methods I showed them, they are now making good progress.

Very pleased with recommendations. Have already started change of diet. Dora seems so much more relaxed (less skittish) walking past other dogs is easier now she is not barking at them. Thank you Tina.

Trainer note from Tina:
A pretty 5 year old GSD, who although lovely indoors, was causing worries due to her behaviour on lead with other dogs. I showed her owners how to be more proactive with her, correcting any unwanted behaviour almost before it started by watching her body language, and lots of praise and encouragement when she responded.
