Fantastic! Lynn listened to our concerns and that provided logical/do able advice on how to address them. My major concern was 'solved' within 24 hours which was amazing (and continues to be solved 1 week later).S.F., Watford, Hertfordshire24th August 2017
After many years of owning dogs (mainly rescue dogs) we decided to get ourselves a 9 week old black lab puppy. We were not at all prepared for how energetic and naughty puppies can be and completely misread his behaviour as aggressive rather than playful. After a couple of weeks of tearing our hair out and being constantly nipped and growled at my daughter found Lynn's number and my husband gave her a call. From the moment she arrived at the house she took control of Charlie and immediately said he was actually quite a timid puppy and not at all aggressive. She taught us methods of play and when to train him and importantly how to discipline him. Up until Lynn came I was not happy to be alone with Charlie and didn't know how to deal with him, the night after she came I spent the whole evening with Charlie playing with him and from that moment on everything changed. He is now 22 months old and is a lovely affectionate dog, he is great with other dogs although still incredibly naughty and loves nothing more than to 'steal' socks from the washing machine and run away with them! I would suggest that anyone experiencing problems with their dogs contact Lynn, she is absolutely brilliant!K.B., Harrow, Middlesex2nd February 2015
Absolutely fabulous service, great value for money and simple, easy to understand techniques. My 2 and a half year old Cocker cross Springer Spaniel Tia has been a handful since she was about 6 months old and we were at the end of our tether with her. She had to be locked away when we had visitors as she would jump up and try and sit on everyone's laps, would also pull on the lead and was generally a bit naughty, but with Lynn's help and support we now have a calm, well behaved family dog, and the difference was noticeable even after only a few hours. Lynn also recommended that we change Tia's diet which has also made a big difference. All the theory behind the techniques and recommendations is explained In detail which makes them easier to understand. Very much looking forward to working on recall techniques.M.B., Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire27th November 2014
Amazed. After several months of a 4am wake up call every day from our Husky pup Willow, we couldn't believe that after the first visit it all stopped! The weeing in the house as well as the scatty barking has also stopped. Pixie (our Boxer pup) is taking a bit longer with her lead training but I'm sure we will get there soon enough. They have both put on weight due to the change of diet, and look much more healthy (as they were both under weight). Lynn explained everything really well and showed us how the pups see things. Would recommend Lynn to anyone having problems with their dogs.C.M., Hayes, Middlesex26th January 2014
Lynn was amazing. At first we all were very dubious of how much Daisy could be helped due to extreme fear and need to protect but within the lesson Lynn was banging on the door with only one bark from her which is unheard of. She is peacefully laying down, listening to commands like we have always prayed she would do. Thank you so much for your time and expertise!C.W., Enfield, Middlesex25th January 2014

The training session was very informative and we are looking forward to putting Opie through his training. Lynn was very professional and patient and hopefully when we contact her in 2 weeks we will have some positive feed back for her.

Lynn is obviously very experienced and was very helpful. She demonstrated useful correction techniques that we could employ immediately. These enabled us to feel more confident in training our puppy. There has been a marked improvement in our puppy's behaviour.
5th October 2017Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn is clearly very knowledgeable and quickly assessed our main issues. She asked what we wanted to achieve being clear what was achievable. She gave very clear instructions to ensure we knew what we were doing and why. She was friendly and approachable and we were delighted to be able to see the potential for improvements from the work she did with us. There is some way to go but we were hugely impressed what was achieved in our first session and feel very positive for the future.

Lynn came to help us with our 5 month old dachshund, Bunny. We've only had her for a few weeks and were experiencing a few problems with fear / aggression towards (all!) other dogs, toilet training and we also wanted some advice on managing her general small dog neediness. Lynn was great and gave us loads of really useful tips on training, and also our general behaviour towards the dog too. We really enjoyed the session and Bunny certainly knew she was in the presence of someone not to be messed with! All the techniques she recommended have proved effective so far, so I would definitely recommend Bark Busters to a friend. Thanks Lynn!
6th September 2017Lynn Prentice dealt with:
We have been working hard on the advice Lynn gave us. And within 2 days it was clear she was calmer and not so demanding. Her behaviour when walking has dramatically improved, she is not in charge we are, and with plenty of lose lead.
Lynn was clear and precise and very quick to see where we were going wrong. Maggie is so worth the effort, especially being a rescue...

Lynn spent 3 hours with us firstly identifying what the problem was and then giving us advice on how to rectify the situation to enable us to enjoy being Teddys owners and also to have a dog free of anxiety.

15th August 2017Lynn Prentice dealt with:
We contacted barkbusters as we really wanted help to train our chocolate Labrador quickly as we also have a 3 month old baby. Wispa was hyperactive, bouncy, barky and loved mouthing people (especially guests). So far we have only had the first session and so I wouldn't usually leave feedback so early but the instant change in her behaviour has been so good that it would have been worth every penny even if the training ended today. Since the training, we have found having Wispa completely stress free. Lynn (AKA the dog whisperer) taught us how to communicate with our dog in a way that she understands and now Wispa is quiet, calm, doesn't jump up, loves to chill with us, walks on a lead and so far hasn't chewed anything but if she does I have every confidence that we'll be able to stop it.
I'm genuinely shocked how quickly she has transformed and looking forward to fine tuning her within the year. Huge thank you to Lynn!

Lynn was excellent she showed us where we were going wrong and how to correct it within 3 hours dexter had made vast improvement I would recommend her to all my friends.
12th July 2017Lynn Prentice dealt with:
The first session was fantastic and I instantly noticed a difference using the techniques Lynn showed me. Sherlock stayed in his cage all night and when I woke up it was dry! So that's amazing. So far all toilets have been outside and the nipping is minimal with great response.
