What our clients say about Tina Edwards
Dog Training & Behavioural Therapist
23rd October 2010Tina Edwards dealt with:
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.
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.
