What our clients say about Tina Edwards
Dog Training & Behavioural Therapist
9th August 2013Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina arrived on time and had myself and my wife training Paddy almost immediately by having us ignore his attempts for attention and over the weeks he has become used to this and is now a lot calmer dog. She also gave advice on the barking issue which has proved invaluable.
Paddy rarely barks now and I never thought his behaviour could change so drastically in such a short space of time. I can now take him for walks without him pulling me all over the shop and although he still tries it on, by remaining consistent I can usually refocus him.
I would say that what Tina has shown us is really common sense and the bottom line appears to be, if you don't want your dog to do it, don't let him do it! Looking forward to the recall training but for now just enjoying the peace and quiet. Thanks Tina.
Paddy is an over excitable Labrador x, who had become very protective in the house and garden barking at noises and had given himself a special chair so he could look out of the window all the time and bark at everyone passing! He was fixated on running water, and the mower so doing gardening was difficult. I have shown his owners how to keep matters calm and do training exercises to desensitise him to the mower, hose etc. They now have a way to say "stop" that he understands and he gets lots of praise when he refocuses on them. A joy to teach and progress is going very well.
