What dog owners are saying about us
Gina was so helpful I cannot recommend her highly enough. I am putting in to practice eveything she told me and I am starting to get good results.Y.J., Cheltenham, Gloucestershire (Testimonial)6th November 2018
Very clear and precise explanation of what to do. Gina was not afraid of our very hyper pup and soon had him weighed up. Practical demo of training aid was excellent aided by a neighbours escaping dog. Gina could answer all our questions and made plenty of suggestions how best we can progressS.D., Westwood, Wiltshire (Testimonial)23rd February 2018
Had a great session with Gina on Puppy management. A lot the information that Gina gave made perfect common sense and made it easier to understand Dougie's behaviour. It felt good to know that there is support on hand when things aren't going to plan.K.F., Midsomer Norton, Somerset (Testimonial)18th October 2017
Gina was clearly very experienced and explained the Bark Busters method of training, the theory behind it and happily answered all my questions. She was very encouraging throughout and gave advice for every scenario that I threw at her! Gina explained the psychology behind communicating with a dog, the importance of establishing leadership and giving them boundaries in which they can relax and 'just be a dog'. Lola responded so well to the techniques and showed improvement within minutes without the need for treats or aids.L.W., Bath, Avon (Testimonial)29th May 2017
We found the training very good and also easy to understand Gina was brilliant at explaining things to us it's only been a week and we have seen great changes still a way to go but very optimistic. The digging has stopped, only took 2 days, unbeliveable,looking forward to the next session,S.R., Trowbridge, Wiltshire (Testimonial)21st August 2016

Gina was firstly extremely lovely. the former "behaviouralist" I used was extremely judgemental and rude and it was lovely to not feed judged because I followed the bad advice of that former trainer and also that I am not being judged for having a fearful dog. Gina is also an excellent teacher, she doesn't expect you to be a pro or not make mistakes. I felt all the info provided was excellent and really helped and Ive already noticed a difference in Bilbo, as have my family. She clearly cares and it shows. I couldn't give higher praise.

19th October 2018Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Lots of information on how the dog has trained us to do what she wants, we can now recognise the same with our other dogs. Gina gave us loads of hints and tips on managing behaviours, both ours and the dogs. Glad we were left with an information pack as there was a lot of information to take in during the session. We have been practising with Nyla and our other dogs what we were shown and have made some alterations to our routines. She is slowly starting to do as we ask, we just need to be patient.

1st August 2018Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Easy clear basic common sense instructions, with immediate results. Myself and my partner took turns in training. I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes. It’s only the start and I’m sure it will get harder, but it has given us hope we will work through this.

Gina was very helpful, and I found it to be incredibly useful, so far so good, haven't done the noise desensitising yet, as he is a more confident dog at the moment.
27th May 2018Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Easy to understand instructions.
Very patient with dogs and us as humans.
We certainly have seen an early improvement.
Weston super mare, Avon (Testimonial)
23rd April 2018Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Gina was great with us and taught us the techniques to use on Poppy when she mis-behaved. We are still getting used to doing it but need to do it much less each day. She is much calmer but is still our bouncy ball of energy - just quieter!
We thought she was excited when people came to the house and Gina taught us that by looking at her body language she could tell that she was actually frightened and felt the need to protect us. We are taking away that feeling by showing her we are in charge and she certainly seems much calmer when people come in with almost no barking at all.
