Gina was an excellent trainer, pickle is going to be a challenge she has a very strong will. She is trying to be my boss but I will keep trying the tactics that Gina showed me. I look forward to seeing her again.
4th March 2018Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Much improvement even in the first week of training. Have changed her food gradually from additives and wheat etc. We find she is respecting us now. I am more relaxed with the lead which makes her more relaxed also. Still sometimes tugs but I correct this. Thank you so much. Life is a lot better.

Our session with Gina was incredibly helpful. We learned so much and have already seen a change in Fergus' behaviour. We still have a long way to go but Gina helped us to retrain ourselves to help our dog to be less anxious around strangers and to understand our family structure. She is patient, understanding and highly experienced. I have already recommended her to my friends and family. Thank you Bark Busters
25th February 2018Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Gina clearly knows her stuff: we were under no illusions that it is us that need training- the dogs behaviour is driven by ours, and Gina has helped us see how we can change.
We were amazed at how quickly some of the changes yielded results.
I really like the no-treat approach to dog training: so far it has worked and it means training can happen whenever the opportunity presents itself rather than only when you have treats. I also like the cost certainty: i felt confident signing up that this isn’t going to turn into a bottomless pit.
It is early days yet but already I have full confidence that we will get to where we want to thanks to The Bark Busters approach and in particular with Gina’s guidance.
Rome wasn’t built in a day so I have only ticked what already works and will come back later and update when other issues have been resolved.

Our lesson with Gina was brilliant, from the beginning of the session she recognized the behavior issues with Milo and realized that we were the main reason for bringing out these behavioral issues ! Gina recognized from the start that Milo was pack leader in our household and demonstrated some very important commands and techniques in which we could turn that around so that we were both pack leaders and that Milo follows and not leads!
Overall we were both very pleased with our first session and 24 hours later we are starting to see a change in Milo’s behavior.
Thank you Gina & barkbusters !

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 progress

Very pleased with the first session, it’s only been a week and we have had some improvement. We are pleased how it is going fingers crossed it carries on.
28th January 2018Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Amazing, could see instant improvements in behaviour. Just need to keep using the techniques shown by Gina. I was shocked by how the dogs had got me so well trained !!
3rd January 2018Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Talked me through what dogs understand and their role in the family.
Knew straight away what Asa's problem was and gave us reasons as to why he was behaving as he was.
Then showed us what to do and emphasised that his lack of concentration was due to diet.
As Asa is a large dobermann with a guarding instinct we were relieved to know he can be trained to become much more of a pet minus the role of Leader and Protector, which he couldn't cope with.
Brilliant advice and first visit resulted in noticeable progress.What a relief!
29th November 2017Gina Hinsley dealt with:
Gina has really helped us understand Max's behaviour. She suggested a change to a raw food diet would help him with his hyperactivity and we were amazed at the results, he is so much calmer now. Following her training advice he is also becoming less of the leader of the pack and is listening to us more. Early days but so glad we contacted Barkbusters.
