What our Clients are saying about us
Brilliant. Very informative, very understanding of my pocket rocket yorkie. Good advice about all aspects including food and a more holistic way of supporting some of her needs. Tina was not afraid to be gently firm with me which helped install the basics in me and thus help me with my very determined Milly.B.W., Sturry, Kent3rd July 2018
I was not expecting great things but to my surprise Dylan has started to change his bad ways for the better. He is learning to be the kind of dog we want him to be. It's work in progress and he is doing it well.J.K., Maidstone, Kent8th May 2018
Brilliant service 5 star plus Kiki made amazing progress in a very short time and responded straight away. I totally recommend Bark BustersL.S., Bromley, Kent10th August 2017
I enjoyed meeting Tina and getting to understand her way of training. Tina is polite and the training she gives shows how well you can get more control over your dog, and with me being in a wheelchair the fact she travels to your home makes it a lot easier on me and keeps Layla from being as anxious. Tina has good tips on feeding as well as training your dog, the walking training has made it alot easier as Layla now doesn't pull me and she is now beginning to listen to me when we are out walking.A.L., Gillingham, Kent, Kent5th December 2016
Tina was amazing on her first introduction to the two terrors. She had a clear understanding of our own and the dogs' needs. Firstly the dietary advice was brilliant, and we have been following everything we were told. Even down to the treats and such. We have seen such an improvement now in health and wellbeing. Basic skills such as Door control were pretty much solved in the first meeting,as was who owns the sofa! Instant results are amazing and have stuck. It takes a lot of time and dedication, but with Tina backing us up we hope to show off tWo perfect pups on her next visit!J.D., Maidstone, Kent18th August 2016

Tina was very thorough and supportive to both of us and of course our puppy - who responded well. She managed our expectations, didnt tell us off and was full of innovative ideas. Have been doing our homework and already see a calmer less anxious doggy.
This pups owners were doing nothing wrong, it just didn't suit the personality of their little dog! He did get very tired towards the end of our teaching him his new games, and loved evrey minute.

We were amazed at how well Darwin responded to the training Tina taught us. Tina explained everything to us,explaining why Darwin is behaving the way he is. Still have a lot of work to stop him from barking when we go out but we're sure with Tina's help we can get there. We're putting Darwin on a raw food diet as advised so hopefully that will calm him down a bit. Thanks again
Darwin had been barking and howling when his owners went out, this upset the neighbours naturally, but his owners had no idea that it was happening until matters became rather fraught. Darwin was a star pupil, his owners are committed to helping him overcome his separation anxiety so I'm sure they will follow the specific programme of games we put in place.

Brilliant. Very informative, very understanding of my pocket rocket yorkie. Good advice about all aspects including food and a more holistic way of supporting some of her needs. Tina was not afraid to be gently firm with me which helped install the basics in me and thus help me with my very determined Milly.
Milly, well on my arrival she launched from about 4 mtrs away what looked like a full on attack at me! Full speed and landed half way up my chest! Luckily, once we started work, she showed us just what a delightful little girl she is! I fell in love with her and could have sneaked her in my bag to take her home! Her owners now know how to speak dog and she is relieved not to have to make decisions about visitors. Future visits will help with lead work and focus on her owner.

After meeting Tina .. listening to all her knowledge and expertise we were so very relieved to hear and see how she could help us with Major.
The training session with her was amazing, we were all anxious but she made us feel much more confident in such a short time. She allowed us to realise that with work and commitment we could enjoy Major to the full extent and he in turn could lose his anxiety.
We feel so happy and have already seen progress!
Major's owners learned to "speak dog"! Once he understood when they wanted him to stop certain behaviours, like unnecessary barking he was happy to respond. The first session was the first step in the process of teaching him that he can walk calmly on a loose lead and ignore other dogs. He has been VERY reactive to dogs and has got out of harness and muzzle and was VERY hard to control on lead. We used a gently head collar to give his owners confidence that they could control him and we had a fantastic session. Major is an absolute sweetie and will, with consistent work become the dog they had hoped he would be.

It was a real pleasure to meet Tina yesterday. She has already given me more confidence and incentive to go forward with a positive outlook with Angus - he is already responding well to 'BAH' and recall both indoors and outdoors.
We are determined to switch to the raw food, and am busy researching what I feel will work best for us and our lifestyle. There is a wealth of information in the pack that Tina left for us - thank you!
We are looking forward to seeing Tina again to help Angus with his reactivity towards other dogs.
Angus, a re-homed dog, is very anxious about other dogs and occasionally people. His anxiety was being made worse due to too many carbs/cereals in diet, so that will help his reactions. We worked on basics in the house and garden, teaching him to stop barking, and to stay in his bed until invited to greet visitors and to keep calm when someone rang the bell! All a great start to his future session working at his reactive behaviour to dogs.

We have been so impressed with this training system. Tina did a great job of being concise and helpful and very much dwelt on the specific issues we were having. We saw improvements on the day and I’ve continued to see more - this really seems to be getting through to her and we have a calmer dog as a result. We’re only a week in so there’s a little way to go still, but I’m feeling positive that we’ll be able to effect the result we want and be able to enjoy a lifetime of good behaviour from our lovely Mabel.
Mabel is a clever teenager! She thought she knew how to be in charge and make her own decisions, however, she enjoyed the new games we taught her and only wanted to please and get lots of fuss and praise. She is going to be a really lovely family dog.

We have a male patterdale cross, who has been showing aggression to family members. Tina explained to us why this was happening, talked through and then showed us training methods for solving the problems we have been having.
The whole experience was very positive .
A great session although this dog had to have breaks during our training due to becoming overexcited and overstimulated. After 10 mins or so he was calm enough to try a different game and we worked on preventing his Adrenalin from increasing. His food will be changed as it was full of carbs and cereals which made his natural excitability worse. This will help his concentration and he was a quick learner.

I was not expecting great things but to my surprise Dylan has started to change his bad ways for the better. He is learning to be the kind of dog we want him to be. It's work in progress and he is doing it well.
Dylan speaks "dog" so now that his owners are learning how to communicate with him in an effective way, he understands more quickly and is happy to respond. Early days, yes, but on the right track.

Tina was amazing. After only one session, Duffy is much happier and we are in control. She is much calmer when delivery men come to the door and we can open the door while Duffy waits in the hallway. The results after such a short space of time have been incredible. Tina also gave us great advice on what to feed Duffy and we have since changed her to a raw diet which she loves. I can't recommend Tina highly enough.
Duffy thought that she had to control who came in and out of her home and the office where he owners work. We put some simple strategies in place to help to control her impulse to react to door knocking, hi viz jackets, post etc. A real sweetie and with consistent work her new behaviour will become ingrained.

Tina was calm, clear and supportive with the training session delivered, and has really helped to refocus what I need to work on with Loki. He is a nervous dog who feels he needs to take control and defend me and our house, which has caused problems in the past. I’m now really clear that I need to take control, and take the responsibility off his shoulders so that he can relax and look to me for guidance. The techniques Tina has shown me are simple, but so very effective. I’m so pleased that I took the lifetime package after we first met in 2016, as I know I will always have Tina’s support and with that guidance and some hard work and effort from me, I am much more confident that Loki will be able to relax and enjoy a full life. It’s going to take time and patience, but I know we will get there!
Loki was an absolute star when we met again after 2 years! At first it looked like he wanted to kill me, but within half an hour and a little training from his committed mum he began to relax and became my best friend!! He's a sweet boy who felt overwhelmed with the big job he'd accidentally been given.
