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 Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Recall or not coming when called

Was very happy with my session today, saw some very good response. I look forward to having a well behaved loving dog which I am sure now I will have.

Trainer note from Tina:
A beautiful young female GSD who lives with a very placid ex guide dog. She had taken it upon herself to guard her owners and was deciding who could visit! She was initially very aggressive towards me, but once I had shown her owners how to take control of situations calmly, using just voice tones and body language, she became much calmer and seemed grateful for the responsibility to be taken away!

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 Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead Separation Anxiety

We've never had a dog before and so perhaps a 10 year old deaf Jack Russell from a shelter wasn't the ideal choice. We had her for 9 months and tried training her ourselves, but with limited success. In only 2 visits so far, Tina has helped us with so many issues and for an old dog, Toffee has learned really quickly. We can now have visitors over without her jumping on them, she walks on the lead better, is less possissive over toys and anything dropped on the floor and can stay when told to. It's made her calmer and better behaved. I would recommend Bark Busters to anyone with a dog, good or bad.

Trainer note from Tina:
This young couple were struggling with Toffee, the main worry was that she could not be left without continual barking, so they never had a chance to go out together! She had bitten to "protect" her relationship with the man of the house and didn't like the couple having a hug! Also, she would rush at anything dropped on the floor and bite if she got to the item when trying to recover it. It is not too diffucult to train a deaf dog as dogs mainly communicate by body language, so as long as you can get their attention and keep the movements simple they will learn very quickly what is required. Lots of practice, showing her what is right and what is not acceptable has worked in enabling an old dog to learn new tricks and have a happier life in the "autumn" of her years - possibly for the first time ever.

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

I was unsure if this was going to work, as my two adult dogs were trying to kill each other after having puppies. Well, I would recommend Bark Busters to everyone in need of help with their dogs. Within 3 days the dogs no longer wear muzzles in the house, they are sleeping together again, the home is much calmer place and happy. The training will continue, more so for us and understanding how to manage the dogs. I'm so pleased and thankful for your help.

Trainer note from Tina:
A Schnauzer x and a Westie x rescue they had an unintended mating. During the pregnacy Bubbles became very protective and began to grumble at Barney and this got increasingly worse after the pups were born and continued after they were homed. One pup has been kept. The mum had (understandibly) been given a lot of attention during her prenancy and after whelping and as a result had decided that she should control poor "dad" of the litter who was an easy going boy, but had to retaliate to protect himself. Some very nasty fights had happened and the dogs had to be kept completely separate, causing stress, anxiety and arguments within the household and the fear that "mum" would have to be rehomed. Now all is peaceful after showing their owners how to give the dogs the safety of leadership, they can all relax.

Tina Edwards dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Recall or not coming when called

I was amazed at how quickly Jasper responded to the training and how much he enjoyed it! It was quite an eye opener when Tina pointed out all the things I had been doing that had actually put Jasper in control of me! I enjoyed the training and it was small changes by me that made all the difference. I am very pleased with how quickly the training has made such dramatic changes. It turns out I was much more difficult to train than the dog!!

Trainer note from Tina:
Japser is a beautiful young lurcher rescue and had little or no socialisation with humans before his owner fell in love with him. She had made huge progress before we met but had got "stuck" in a few areas. Instead of responding to his every whim which was creating anxiety and controlling behaviours in him, we turned things around and now his owner is in charge of the house/visitors they are both very much happier.

Tina was very helpful and patient with my pup. It has only been a few days since her visit and have started seeing results.

Trainer note from Tina:
A lovely young GSD x BC getting into puppy mischief and trying to run the house already! I confident dog, he will need time and consistent training to get him to be a well mannered dog.

Tina Edwards dealt with: Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Separation Anxiety

I was happy with the techniques used and Casey is a lot calmer and rests much better. She works well at the front door/visitors, no longer rushing. She is a lot calmer around the baby. I have changed her diet for the better and she no longer frets when I go out. I would recommend Bark Busters if you want to get a much better and happier dog.

Trainer note from Tina:
A lovely white GSD who believed she had to organise the whole household and all humans in it! She was therefore rather anxious if her prime carer left and was paying too much attention to the young toddler. We changed the dynamics by doing simple things showing her how to behave and where to be when the toddler was active, with the owners working in short sessions everyday to show her true consistent leadership.

My dog's problems were very difficult to deal with, however the advice and help I received was brilliant. It did take a long-ish time to get a grip on. It definitely is a hard problem to tackle(Separation Anxiety) and is very important to go by all the trainers recommendations. There is no short-cut and is hard work, but for your pet's well-being is most worth it. Just as important, Tina was happy to liaise with my neighbours too. I'm very happy with the result - thank you Tina.

Trainer note from Tina:
Two little Yorkshire terriers, they suffered the full range of problems resulting from Separation Anxiety; toileting, barking, scratching at doors at night when their owner was on night shift. The neighbours were very distressed and upset with the lack of sleep causing a huge amount of stress. We worked on general leadership issues to give the dogs security and safety and tried various different regimes until we found the right combination. Their owner was diligent in following all the training methods and despite the difficulties, was successful in getting happy relaxed dogs and much happier neighbours!

Tina Edwards dealt with: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Jumping up at visitors or the dog jumps up at people on walks Pulling on the Lead

We didn't realise that some simple techniques would make such a difference.

Trainer note from Tina:
A cute Jack Russel dog from rescue, he was getting too protective of his owners when out on the lead. Had become difficult to control when he saw other dogs, "screaming" and choking in an attempt to get to them. I assessed why he was behaving like that and then worked in the house to get simple controls in place and then worked outside on lead to show him how he should behave with other dogs. He's well on the way to being a great little companion.

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

After 2 visits from Tina we are making significant progress with all of Samson's many problem areas. I feel Tina has educated me about dogs. I am a little dyspraxic so some things are quite difficult, but Tina was very patient with me and after the second visit my confidence has started to grow with Samson. Tina has a very kind no-nonsense way about her which I can relate to. I am now spending more time with my dogs and although things are not perfect they are, for me, 100% better.

Trainer note from Tina:
Samson, a young labrador, is a strong dog and was being very wilful with his owners. I helped them to understand that he needed rules and boundaries, rather than unconditional love and that the bond between them would grow once he understood and they could see the true dog coming out.

Tina Edwards dealt with: Puppy Management

Really pleased with Bark Busters - lots of tips, a lovely lady! Thank you!

Trainer note from Tina:
A gorgeous young female Boxer pup who is VERY confident! She needs to understand that her safety lies with her owner and that she must listen and respond to the owner's decisions and not make her own! She may be quite a challenge as she grows up, but with my support her owner will have a lovely "listening" Boxer in adulthood.
