We are very pleased with the helpful training techniques Tina has taught us. We have already seen an improvement in Cassie's behaviour and it has only been a week. We would have no hesitation in recommending Tina.
Cassie did very well on her first session, learning that her owner can keep her safe around other dogs and make all the decisions so that she doesn't make mistakes when worried.

Very helpful and informative.
A cute re-homed little dog who had begun to dislike previous activities that she enjoyed. Whilst assessing and starting work with her and her owners I discovered and pointed out that she had discomfort in her back on one side and when she ran, one of her legs flicked out. I believe that the pain is causing much of her issues so she will be checkout out by a chiropractor so we can continue with work once we know what to avoid.

Tina was excellent. She noticed and was able to give good feedback on our dogs behaviours and where and how things were going wrong. Our dogs are not young - rufus is 10 - and his behaviour was getting worse by the day. He was territorial and aggressive. After only one session and two days follow on training, we can see the better side of him! I am hopeful that all our lives will be better as a result of happier relationships between us and our dogs. We have learnt to take control! Thank you!
Little Rufus actually didn't like being aggressive to people, it wasn't his natural personality! He needed help to understand his pack leaders who are lovely and pleased that their little chap is on the way to being the dog he should be!

Another great session with Tina. It was such a pleasure to show her the amazing progress Max has made in the last months since we have seen her. We are so proud of Max and ourselves for keeping with the training and what an impact it has had. Max no longer barks at people and dogs and he is such a pleasure to have around. In our session we worked on further ways to progress Max in other areas and I look forward to seeing what further progress he can make.
Max's owners with their other two dogs have made fantastic progress by sticking to the training programme and practising every day, they have the results that they wanted. Max is a very sweet gentle boy and is now much happier letting his owners make the decisions!

Hi Tina, just to check in. Jax waits to be invited out of his crate now and in and out of the back door. We have cracked him walking past the treats to one of us. The leadwork is brilliant and it's so much nicer walking with him. He's picked up staying at heel when were out and off lead as well and we haven't had any instances of jumping up at other people. We have had hardly any barking from the bottom of the stairs as well. Very happy. Looking forward to the 31st.
Jax is a young highly intelligent labrador who was just waiting to have his brain challenged! I'm seeing the family again soon to help show a relative the techniques as they will be looking after him from time to time.

At first we were skeptical - the price for a year (and even the lifelong price) seemed too good to be true and we wondered if we really would see any results at all let alone from the very first meeting, however, yesterday we had our first meeting and Tina is simply amazing. She talks you through the method and reason why she trains the way she does, talks about diet and how you can improve your dogs health and then starts the training and we can honestly say that from the moment Tina left - our dog has been completely different. We cannot thank Tina enough already.
I do love my job because dogs seem to understand very quickly the new methods of communication! Owners find it easy to follow, understanding that they have to be calm, quiet but consistent with daily work to get the results they want. Cant wait to see the progress next time!

20th February 2018Tina Edwards dealt with:
We have been having problems with Ellie involving mainly nervous barking at strangers or anyone that was out of context or looked a little strange, which was upsetting and scary for the recipient. This came out of the blue at around one year of age - she had been well socialised as a puppy and we could think of nothing that had caused her sudden lack of confidence.
Tina is clearly a natural with dogs and Ellie was comfortable with her from the start and by the time she left was positively affectionate towards her.
Tina was very thorough in explaining the reasons Ellie was feeling the way she was and teaching me how to help her. She has already improved immensely and is much more calm and happy around strangers. It is a work in progress, but when you have seen clear results on day one, it gives you the incentive to carry on and I am positive Ellie will benefit more and more each day.
Ellie, is a delightful young dog, who had taken it upon herself as she matured, to be the decision maker about strangers! I showed her owner how to calmly take that role away from her and Ellie seemed very grateful! The owner is following the daily training programme we put in place, so with consistency, encouragement and in addition the support from me, I know Ellie will learn quickly to trust.

Another great training session with Tina. Since the last session our dogs had made good progress with their behaviour inside the home. They are now much happier and settled although we are continuing to practice all the tasks Tina set out for us. During this session Tina modelled how to train the dogs when outside. Her advice was fantastic and with consistency and praise our dogs are beginning to show signs of improvement when we are out walking them. Thank you Tina.
It's a joy to work with such clever little dogs, so willing to respond to the new communication methods and enjoying feeling more secure that their owners are more than capable of making the decisions instead of them! Great progress, barking sorted which was the main issue!

We cannot thank Tina enough after just one session of working with our dogs, Domino and Lola. Tina spent time listening to the issues we needed support with and made detailed notes. She then explained about the benefits of the Bark Buster training before beginning to work with our pair. The transformation was instant. My husband and I could not believe how quickly our dogs responded to Tina and then, under Tina's guidance, to us as well. Amongst other issues Tina supported us with, by the end of the session we were able to open our front door and welcome a visitor with two calm, quiet dogs watching from the hall. Fantastic! Tina left us with a pack full of useful information to further support our dogs and detailed tasks to work on over the next two weeks. We started working on the tasks immediately and only 12 hours later are amazed at how well our dogs are responding. We look forward to welcoming Tina back to help us with the dogs in the outside world. We have every confidence that their response to outdoor training will be just as rapid. Thank you, Tina.
Two small rehomed dogs who had bonded well with their new owners, but had some issues that prevented enjoying them to the full. The basics were put in place and both dogs responded well, after a couple of weeks to bed in the foundations we will do more work primarily leadwork and building the dogs confidence with outside distractions.

We have a happier calmer dog with a constructive set of enjoyable exercises to share with her.
Tina's passion for dog training shines through. The Bark Busters method has clicked with us and we are looking forward to working with her as our German Shepherd Maggie improves.
Maggie was a little confused about her job in this family and although not meaning to be aggressive, she had developed some disconcerting habits and could have accidentally hurt someone. A true clever GSD, she was happy to respond to the new calm methods of communication and loves to get it right!
