13th July 2012Tina Edwards dealt with:
Life is now so much better. Both of us now enjoy our pet rather than always being on edge. Tina was great - explained every step of the way - Thank you so much.
This young dog had developed very aggressive behaviour towards their daughter's young pup. The problem was that they were moving in with their daughter her partner and a Staffie who got on with their dog, but there were serious concerns about the safety of the puppy,as he really tried to get to him to attack. I worked first with their Staffie, teaching them how to listen to their decisions, walk calmly and nicely on lead and after a couple of visits, I went to see their daughter and their two dogs. Again I worked teaching control of the pup and started work bringing the two dogs together. First on walks (muzzled) then in the garden, all the time making sure that all three dogs were listening to their owners. In the new house, they were kept separate by a gate to begin with, then came the day when I decided all would be ok to allow them to mix. It was fine and since then all three dogs have been playing, walking and are are even left unattended for short periods. There have been no further signs of aggression and humans and dogs are happy.

Tina was/is excellent to work with - she trained us well! We now have a range of strategies to practice and are aware of the importance of regular and consistent training/praise/refocusing. Sadie is responding positively on all aspects - except toileting which is still a major issue for us.
Sadie is a pretty rescue Boxer who was one of many probably being used as breeding machines. She has made great progress having been very nervous of the "real" world. The toileting is likely to be the final indication of her anxiety and I will review our work on this on my next visit.
20th June 2012Tina Edwards dealt with:
Jack has responded well to our initial attempts and we feel confident with this programme that both our dogs will do well.
Two Boston Terriers and Jack was very determined to get attention! Jumping and nipping me whilst we were talking, which he did with all visitors! Their other dog a female, was very timid so we did some work with them together and separately so as not to stress Jill. On my second visit, I was so happy to see the controls that the owners had put in place, they no longer rushed visitors and quietly waited to be invited over for a fuss. Consisten practice had got results.

5th April 2012Tina Edwards dealt with:
We were very impressed with the way in which our therapist addressed the issues we were having with Jess. Depite Jess' slight deafness, she responded very well to training. Jess is a very happy dog and with ongoing training she will become a much more settled and calm dog.
Jess is a rescue dog who had had 3 homes before finding her "forever" home. Jess had bitten various members of the family, which is likely to be why she'd had 3 homes before. This family were not prepared to give up on her and at 8 yrs old they were concerned that the issues could not be resolved. However, I worked with all the family to give them confidence, explained that her deafness may cause her to be nervous/anxious. With daily calm work she will continue to improve.

31st March 2012Tina Edwards dealt with:
Less Hyperactivity, good improvement in behaviour, less barking and less jumping up.
This is a lovely young Golden Retriever pup, lively and friendly. I showed his owners how to deal with the behahaviours they wanted to control, general management including diet. I saw him again today and he's so much calmer and more responsive and we worked on his leadwork, giving up items and preventing him from keep picking up stuff from the street!

27th March 2012Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina was really helpful and explained everything very clearly to us. I was really impressed with how well she worked with Holly. Holly has started to make some improvements on lead as we have been following Tina's techniques closely. We are all really looking forward to meeting Tina again, as I can see she is really going to help me, my partner and Holly. Thanks Tina
Holly is a rescue SBT and is a very sweet natured girl. She has some aggression to dogs, due to her anxiety/fear of how to respond. So we are in the process of teaching her that her owners make the decisions that they will ensure her safety so that she can walk in a relaxed and calm way around other dogs.
20th March 2012Tina Edwards dealt with:
Having tried 2 other trainers/behaviourists for Addy's fear/anxiety, without success, I was amazed how qauickly Addy and Lilly responded to the techniques. I am sure with daily practice and support from Tina we will have happy healthy relaxed dogs. Thank you so much.
I met these dogs earlier in March. Both are rescues with very different characters so needed the training to be tailored to each of them accordingly. The owners are very experienced dog owners and understood and embraced the basis of the training immediately and we had great results on the day. I have heard from them since and their daily work is really paying off dividends!

8th February 2012Tina Edwards dealt with:
Tina was extremely helpful and explained techniques in clear easy to understand ways. She was very thorough in her sessions and was happy to provide ongoing advice for any queries. With right techniques, we were able to see an immediate change in Lottie's behaviour.
Lottie is a young French Bulldog with all the traits of the bull breeds. Very sweet natured, but rather independent, tending towards stubborn! She was causing problems by jumping up and pulling on the lead making it diffult when friends and their children visited or walks with the buggy. By my second visit she responded very well to her owner, once the easy techniques had been demonstrated. She'll be a lovely family dog.

Folliwng an introductory 2 way email, Tina spent over 3 hours with me and Lola. The procedures were simply explained, demonstrated and then I had a go! Tina was very patient, firm and exttremely fair. I was very impressed and the follow-up service has been fantastic. Three weeks on, with our daily 15 mins, Lola is a changed dog. She is noticeably calmer, happier and 100x more responsive in. In short, a total pleasure! I am absolutely thrilled with the results.
Lola is a beautiful young GSD, but was a little "in charge". Games on her terms etc. We did some basic work, distance control and recall and Lola was a dream to work with. GSD's normally love someone taking the lead role and once I had shown her owner, she had great control. Lola for the first time ever gave up toys on command!
