What dog owners are saying about us
A big thank you again from Max, Chris, Jessica and I! Max has completed a spectacular holiday to Lulworth Cove, Dorset. He has behaved amazingly and been very relaxed around the other dogs and people on the beach and even said hello to a few! So different to the despair we were in last year.H.P., Sittingbourne, Kent (Testimonial)16th August 2018
Meeting Tina on Sunday was a answer to our prayers. She had brought our first meeting forward due to our growing concerns of Archie's negative behaviour. Archie responded well to Tina which showed us what a lovely dog he will become through improved training. Tina showed us how to manage Archie's behaviour using her techniques of passive leadership. She has given us the confidence to work through a training programme with Archie. It is also good to know that she is only a phone call away should we need to contact her!A.W., Eridge Green, Tunbridge Wells, Kent (Testimonial)24th August 2016
Tina is a god send. Our little boy was 10 weeks old when she came and saw us. She has helped us with puppy management and that in turn has helped us make sure Sargent is going to turn into a lovely natured lad. We would highly recommend her to all of our friends. Thank you Tina xK.S., Plaxtol, Kent (Testimonial)27th July 2016
Tina came highly recommended by a work colleague of a friend of mine and she didn't disappoint. She is obviously very experienced and we have seen a change in Maggie already, as quickly as that afternoon. Maggie seems a lot calmer and more relaxed when I am out walking her and I am more relaxed too, which obviously helps Maggie as I know she could feel the tension in the lead every time we came across a hazard. I feel more confident now that I have been shown how to deal with it. Maggie's problem is aggression towards people, vehicles and other dogs but my partner and I feel confident that we will crack it this time with Tina's help. It is early days and we realise that Maggie's aggression won't go away over night but with the training methods that Tina has shown us so far, we are sure that Maggie will eventually be the dog we know she can be. We are looking forward to Tina's next visit.K.M., Ash, Kent (Testimonial)23rd June 2016
We were so impressed, within two minutes of Tina arriving Alfies behaviour improved immensely. His problem mainly is jumping up at friends when they arrive and not leaving them alone for their whole visit.Consequently, we dont have many visitors ! Tina explained how to tackle the problem and had Alfie calm very quickly. Her instructions are very easy to follow and make alot of sense. Alfie is a rescue dog and has alot of issues but I am completely confident that with Tinas help we will succeed.A.H., wrotham heath, Kent (Testimonial)9th January 2016

Everyone needs a Tina! Our lovely Lola came from a working background and we were having some on lead issues with anything that moved. She’s a strong dog and very vocal so draws attention to herself for the wrong reasons, all this wasn’t making walking her enjoyable. Tina explained a few basic things we had to address and she instantly picked it up. Our session made us realise that there is no quick fix and by putting these basic things in place we can adapt them to any situation, raising the stakes gradually. Tina has given us the tools, knowledge and support to make us feels like anything is possible. We’re generally excited to see where our little journey takes us. Thank you Tina
Lola had spent 5 years as a working girl so found it difficult to adjust to a different lifestyle. However, she has started to enjoy learning a new job, as a very much loved family pet, using her amazing brain and willing attitude with her totally committed owners who love her to bits!

Tina was absolutely wonderful, Tina was recommended by some friends, Tina explained clearly and calmly how To correct behaviours and helped me feel more confident in putting these into practice, my dog has been transformed, and I cried at the end of the session because I was so overwhelmed with how well my dog responded and how much easier things would be A week on I am doing the training with my dog daily and he is doing so well , if you are considering using bark busters don’t hesitate go for it you will not be disappointed
Duke was very grateful to be made redundant from his top job as household organiser! He was so happy to respond to his owners' new found confidence in understanding him and communicating in a way he understands her. Gorgeous friendly boy, but strong and previously a bit of a handful! So happy that matters are progressing well with the daily training. He'll be loving all the attention!

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 family
Zeus is a young Hungarian Viszla pup. He's very intelligent and thoroughly enjoyed the new games we showed him. He's just started to think like a teenager so needs a calm consistent education which his family can now provide.

24th December 2018Tina Edwards dealt with:
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.
A young dog who has had in total 5 homes prior to this one. Thankfully, his humans are totally committed to making it work. He has a lovely sister to copy from, but he needed showing and guiding into new behaviours so that he wasn't just rehearsing the same unwanted ones, like jumping up, barking at visitors, rushing at other dogs and owners when off lead. We showed him how to focus on his owners and how to control certain impulses. He was a joy to teach and was so happy to respond. He has found his life long home with great owners.

Tina has been amazing! On Tina’s advice we changed to a raw diet a few weeks before the first session and saw a change within two days, much calmer and happier, also it has worked out cheaper which is an added bonus. The training session went so well and was clear and easy to understand making it easy to follow on our own. There has been a massive change already, just one day and already no aggression to visitors and much easier to walk making it more enjoyable for me and my dog. Although it is early days and we have a way to go and work to do I can’t believe the changes we have seen already. Massive thanks to Tina for helping to settle and ensure our rescue dog has the best chance at her new forever home!
Roxy is a very sweet girl, but big and strong. Due to her early life she is scared of dogs she hasn't had the chance to meet calmly so has been getting defensive. We have started to show her a new way to behave with visitors, walk without lunging and reacting to dogs and to stop jumping up. She was such a great willing girl, loving the new games we showed her, but it will take daily practice to help her overcome her anxieties. Go Roxy!

2nd December 2018Tina Edwards dealt with:
This was a wonderful experience. I was quite nervous as I knew that despite all the reading I had done and my experience of behaviour modification I was doing lots of things wrong. Tina was very kind and patient and once she had explained the basic underlying principles everything made sense! She showed me the techniques and we had fabulous success even in the 3 hour session here. We had arranged for my friend and her two girls to come towards the end so we could practice and it was wonderful to see the girls happy that Ejla wasn’t jumping up and pawing them. We have done our first training already this morning and although the walking without pulling will take some work we have already made lots of progress. My neighbours were very curious as I walked around the close changing directions and doing figure of 8 and backwards leading etc. Thank you so much Tina and Barkbusters - you have literally changed our lives for the better!
What a lovely afternoon I had! This was a young labrador x, very large and strong. Extremely friendly, but had no idea that she was accidentally hurting people and scaring small dogs with her exuberant greetings! However, she loved to please and get praise and was quick to understand and learn the new games. I can't wait to see how they progress, she could easily become a field trial dog or obedience champion!!

29th November 2018Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina was so helpful with Archie’s problems of barking when friends come over, jumping up and general attention seeking. She was calm, professional and gently authoritative. She explained how I should deal with the problems in an understandable way and by the time we reached the end of the session Archie was putty in her hands. Clearly I was the one that needed the help and not him! I would definitely recommend Tina to anyone having problems with their dog.
Archie had decided to be the one deciding when and how people should give him constant attention and demanded it most of the time! He was such a quick learner, loved the new games where the humans in his life showed him a new way to behave and will practice until it's become his new habit! Lovely dog, committed owners, he'll be a very happy contented relaxed boy.

25th November 2018Tina Edwards dealt with:
Excellent! bespoke training to help our dog.
Having added a rescue to dog, another Lurcher, help was needed as she had very little focus on her owners, especially when out on lead, pulling like crazy and sometimes disappearing when off lead to go hunting! We devised some slimple games to start the process of helping her to focus and made them fun with lots of fuss and reward giving her the encouragement she needs.

Tina spent over 3 hours with us and our dogs biggins and asti, firstly talking through what we wanted for ourselves and for them to get out of the training. Tina then showed us some techniques and practices we can use to iron out the issues we had, i can honestly say it has been 5 days since our first session and we have already seen an improvement. We will continue to work on the training plan that Tina wrote up for us and will no doubt see more improvement. Tina also spoke to us about diet, games to play and general ways to help keep them entertained. It was a pleasure having Tina help us with us and our dogs and we are looking forward to having 2 very happy dogs in the house.
Two lovely dogs with lovely owners wanting the best for their dogs and to enjoy them to the full. Lovely to hear that they are working hard with the training!

Tina was very helpful and knowledgeable. Rosie is already much calmer and responsive. Everything Tina observed and drew to my attention was spot-on. Excellent training session for Rosie and, more particularly, for me!
Little Rosie was a great pupil and loved all the games we put in place for daily practice to teach her a new way to behave and to control her impulse to react to other dogs.
