What dog owners are saying about us
So helpful! We had quite a few problems in both our dogs we just didn't know how to handle, and Tina was very effective; she explained why they were doing this problem behaviour, and why a certain training method was being used. While the real test is implementing the training over the following weeks, we noticed improvements in their behaviour pretty quickly; our dogs understood. Very pleased and hopeful about the future.S.R., Brasted, Kent (Testimonial)27th August 2019
Tina was wonderful, she took time to explain everything clearly, walked us through all the different training techniques in detail, she explained everything in an easy to understand way and we saw a big improvement in the first 3 hours with the dogs. Its great having a technique to help with my boys fearful aggression around other dogs and to be able to deal with the situation in a productive way.T.G., Tunbridge Wells, Kent (Testimonial)25th August 2019
Excellent training techniques which we can all apply at home and whilst we are out. Also good advice on nutrition. Everything was explained clearly and Tina was very patient showing us exactly how to follow all the instructions given. Enya is thoroughly enjoying her new games with us, she is much calmer as a result.D.D., Maidstone, Kent (Testimonial)11th March 2019
Tina was fabulous not only with training Zeus but myself too, such simple techniques and understanding the language required to communicate with my puppy has changed our whole relationship. I was feeling overwhelmed, unsure whether I would be capable of caring for Zeus and yet with Tina’s help I feel confident that Zeus is going to be an asset to our familyS.S., Sutton Valence, Kent (Testimonial)2nd January 2019
Tina came to help us with a number of issues with our one year old rescue Sproodle who we adopted five weeks ago. She is extremely knowledgeable and experienced and immediately helped us to understand the areas we needed to work on to address Helix's bossy, bullying behaviour, his barking and other issues. The exercises she has given us are all relatively simple and easy to understand and we feel confident we can continue to do them on our own to continue with the training. She also gave us some really good advice for walking them without pulling and tools and techniques for doing so. We were really desperate for help and after just one session with Tina have already seen improvements in behaviour and feel much more positive now about Helix being able to settle in with our family. Thank you Tina, you were wonderful and really supportive. I would highly recommend Tina to others.L.H., Dungeness, Kent (Testimonial)24th December 2018

Training went very well, all advice given was clear and straightforward. It gave us a good basis to work towards our goals.
Anxious, nervous but sweet natured GSD who was exhibiting reactivity to people and unknown dogs. She is still quite young and her owners are now well on the way to helping her to change her behaviour so that she can focus on them and not be worried about others.

Two lovely young dogs who had misunderstood the messages they were getting. Their owners were able to see them figure out and understand what was wanted with simple, kind, calm techniques and were able to recreate them with coaching. Can't wait to hear how they get on with their homework!

This boy is a stunning dog, who was so willing to learn and respond. He is now being shown and guided into how he should greet unknown dog in a polite way. Due to his unknown early life as a stray he had become defensive and protective of his new lovely owners. His companion dog, a younger female is much more confident, but has some issues too that need refinement! Fabulous dogs, with huge potential; I have high expectations for both dogs and owners and can't wait to see their progress.

Tina answered all our queries and more. We couldn't quite believe how effective her training was. Frank did exactly what Tina wanted him to do. We all now need to practise the different techniques. Tina was a font of knowledge. We all learnt so much and can highly recommend her services.
Frank is a very intelligent young puppy, so when I coached his family into copying the unique Bark Buster techniques, they were able to get the same results as I did! I left them with homework and lots of games that can teach Frank how to behave in real life situations and I can't wait to see his progress myself. (I dearly wanted to steal him!!)

I thoroughly enjoyed my session with Tina today.. It was insightful and really useful... I can see a way forward now with training, which I hadn’t before. I’m So glad I found her... Roxy and I will now begin some more structured training and look forward to seeing Tina again soon to see how we’re getting on... Thank you Tina
Such a gorgeous young mastiff just needing some great leadership and quiet calm guidance. I can't wait to do some more work with her to teach her more focus once the basics are in place.

19th May 2019Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina was very clear and patient when explaining the training techniques we needed to use to prevent our dog from continuing to act in an aggressive manner to other dogs. There were 3 of us to explain and demonstrate to and she spent time with each of us. We were encouraged during the session when we saw that our dog immediately responded well to the techniques Tina used which we then each followed. We have been using the same training techniques for just over a week now and have seen a big improvement already. We have tried various types of training before to resolve his aggression but non have been effective previously. We are very thankful that Tina has given us the tools to work with to train him out of his behaviour so we can enjoy taking him out for walks again and be sociable with others dogs.
A super quick bright dog had been bitten to another dog some time ago and progressively became more anxious and defensive when seeing other dogs. The family were keen to help him so that he would relax and walk past other dogs and be safe to let off lead and not rush barking at dogs he didn't know. He was a star and his family worked well with the techniques I demonstrated and he began to improve very quickly on the day. Now, with such committed owners, there's no reason why they can't succeed.

7th May 2019Tina Edwards dealt with:
The training was fantastic we saw a difference in the dogs straight away. Lots of constructive information, looking forward to positive ongoing results
Two very gorgeous but hyper Staffies! They greeted me by jumping up in a over friendly way and took a while to calm down. Rough play with each other and mugging every visitor was an issue! They both responded really well and were pretty tired after their brain work. I'll be going back to work on loose lead walking and recall.

24th April 2019Tina Edwards dealt with:
Just wanted to say that things are absolutely great , Enya has responded really really well to training and things have moved really fast and she is already off lead again with no signs of aggression towards other dogs
Enya had been attacked by another dog in an upprovoked attack and has since become very defensive and protective over her ball when out on walks, worse when on lead if a dog came up to her and she was anxious. This resulted in her lunging and trying to drive dogs away. Prior to this she had been happy to interact and play with other dogs socially. We started with games to show her that her owners could make decisions and keep her safe and after less than 8 weeks, she has made excellent progress.

23rd April 2019Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina came to help me with my two German Shepherds. Both girls, they had become unruly and over excited, Barking at other dogs and generally not listening. Tina was kind, calm and informative. Pointing out the obvious mistakes I was Making. Giving me instructions and exercises to practice with my girls. I have seen a difference within a week. As advised I have changed their diet and the difference is really noticeable. I really feel that Tina has put as back on track, towards two beautifully behaved dogs.
LIfe was becoming annoying and difficult for the owner of these two wayward girls! Lovely natures, but had decided that their job was to guard the home, their owner, ALL the time! So lunging and barking was a real issue and with two large dog a worry for their owner. They responded wonderfully! GSD's love to have rules and boundaries that they understand and are consistent and they relaxed and began to listen. Food does make a big difference, too many carbs in today's processed dog foods just create excess energy and exacerbate anxieties.
