21st August 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
I was quite apprehensive about the training as I had never done this with previous dogs, but as soon as Tina arrived she put me at ease.
Tina explained what was going to happen,and then we discussed the problems I wanted to concentrate on.
I was shown training techniques, and how to build on them and Tina then carried out some of the techniques, and I was amazed how quickly my puppy responded.
Tina also advised about crate training which I had decided not to use,after approx 1 week of initially using it, when I first brought my dog home.I felt that 5 months later it may be difficult to use again. However following the discussion we had, I realised what benefits it had, for my dog to feel safe, and following tips to practice getting her to go in it, I was amazed that my dog slept in it all night, which I was so pleased with.
I was made to feel we could call any time for further advice and help and I would definitely recommend Bark Busters and Tina to anyone.
The cutest little Pomeranian puppy ever! She had done a great job of getting everyone in the family well and truly wrapped around her little paw and I almost succumbed too! A very sweet natured little pup, but had started causing problems by barking, not getting enough sleep, not sleeping through the night plus all the normal puppy stuff like stealing, mouthing etc. I showed her owners how to communicate with her just using body language and voice tones and persuaded them that part of the problem was that she needed proper sleeps during the day and the day and that a crate was the best place for sleeps and overnight. I worked with her at first to show what she was capable of then coached her owners in the same techniques. She was a little star! Responding really well and grateful that the humans had relieved her of the job of running the household!

11th July 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina worked through a number of simple exercises with us and the dogs to help us understand how to passively control our dogs and establish leadership. I was amazed how immediately effective the training was. After living with dogs that go crazy every time the door bell rings to peace and quiet within a few days has been a great relief.
Great to work with these dogs who responded very well, once they understood what their owners wanted!

In the few days after Tina came and met Roo and I and showed us the basics, I have really noticed a difference. He walks so well on the lead and even ignored a dog he met! I have changed his food to all raw and he poos less! He will do as he is told, mostly, whilst on the lead and even slows down his own gait when I ask! Am looking forward to seeing progress with the park and recall.
Roo is a large lurcher who at first meeting seemed very aloof. I met with them again yesterday and it was obvious that his owner had been working really hard on the daily training programme we put in place as Roo. He was so much improved that they were ready for more work in the park doing long lead work for recall, distance control and attentiveness. He was very quick to pick up what was wanted and they are now well on their way to allowing recall in a couple of months time once he has achieved a good "stop" and "come"! Can't wait to see it for myself.

13th June 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
Very pleased with Tina. Our dog is responding to the training almost immediately.
A young GSD who is excitable by nature, but made worse by his diet. We worked on getting him to respond to the natural communication methods I use so that we can slowly build his understanding or good and unacceptable behaviours. A puppy in an adult body, he will take time to mature as he learns.

11th June 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina was clear and concise with her instructions & had my family working well with Tia. The session was intense but worthwhile. Tia was exhausted!
I have a new found confidence to take my over exuberant GSD out on my own.
Now its up to me and the rest of the family to be consistent with Tia and make her the calmer happy dog we know she can be.
Thank you for your ongoing support and encouragement
Tia is a lovely girl, but highly strung as some GSD's can be. Calm, consistent work, showing and guiding her into the new behaviour will get the results wanted.

27th May 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina was amazing, really hit the nail on the head with Cash despite only meeting him then for the first time. We felt more confident and positive about his behaviour and can see an improvement since meeting with Tina. Would highly recommend.
Cash is a very handsome GSD, but was being much to protective of his home and owners causing them concern in the way he rushed and barked at visitors. I showed them various ways to teach him to respond to them so they could show him that they, not Cash, were responsible for visitors! More work to do, but a great start.

14th May 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
Really clear instructions and already I can see an improvement after only one day, although my throat hurts from the BAH!
Two dogs having been waiting for their education! They both responded extremely well to the work and with support I can picture them running in a park with no aggression to other dogs. The male had also become overprotective of his owner and had decided that family members cuddling her, people handing items to her were a huge threat to her! We are going through a desensitising process with general obedience to take away his belief that he should be protecting her and his female companion dog.
UPPER HARTFIELD, East Sussex (Testimonial)
13th May 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
Excellent - very informative and practical advice given.
We discussed the dogs in depth and then moved on to working through techniques with them.
Two Greek rescue dogs. One is turning out to be a very clever escape artist! Both have settled in well to their new home, but the owner wants to make sure that she is giving them the best possible new start. Both dogs, having been strays are used to making their own decisions on matters, have been supporting themselves by scavenging and are not used to being confined on a lead. We are therefore working on the basics of lead work, recall and general response to normal commands and with support these two dogs will be a credit to the rescue and their new home.

8th May 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina and her work has proved a great success with Belle. She helped a lot and provided more than we expected, returning to check progress. We could not have had a better experience.
A young excitable Labrador who almost ended up in rescue due to her "loopy" behaviour. She was sometimes nervous, barking at unusual situations/people, over friendly and jumping up at visitors. She responded so quickly once she understood the new way of communicating. Such a lovely dog, she should now grow into a lovely family pet.
Minster, Kent (Testimonial)
8th April 2014Tina Edwards dealt with:
It was all very informative, learning new things and correcting other things we thought we knew.
A large young husky who already had very good obedience, having help from a very well trained companion! He had started to bully other dogs when off lead and his recall needs some help too. A lovely natured dog, because of his breed he needs absolute consistency in his training to get to the level his owner wants.
