12th July 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Our experience with Lynn has been positive. Both of our dogs have improved with the training we were shown. Our girl has responded very well, whereas our boy has proved to be more difficult. There has been a dramatic improvement when going for walks, and it is a pleaure now without the incessant pulling. Still having problems with barking outside. Around the house is much improved and visitors have commented about how quiet they are now. Lynn responded quickly to our request for some refresher training. Training lapsed when we left the dogs while we were away on holiday, but is now back on track.
1st June 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn assured us with her confidence that she knew what she doing. She gave us clear, manageable and achievable instructions with exercises to follow and practice. Our dog was noticeably quieter by the time she left. She used lots of good analogies to help us understand our dog's aggressive behavior. Lynn chose to work on a few aspects of Poppy's behavior at the first visit, and not all at once; so we don't feel overwhelmed by the work ahead.

We have found a significant improvement in Baileys behaviour since the moment Lynn came to visit.
We have renewed hope that he can become the dog we want him to be.
We only wish we had contacted you slightly sooner.

Lynn has just left having spent 4 hours with us and our 2 dogs, and I am thrilled with the training.
Having already had a one on one with another training school, and been thoroughly disappointed Lynn's approach was fantastic, and already it feels like there's a noticeable change in both dogs behaviour.We shall be keeping up the homework practice and following Lynn's advice and look forward to 2 happy and contented dogs.

Now we know how to guide and train Gwen to overcome her barking and we have the back up of Lynn, our life should be much happier with a calm dog around.
Lynn was so helpful, that we can now see light at the end of the tunnel.
7th May 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Very good opening session with a lot of information provided. Good practical help as well.
A lot to take in over one meeting so the written notes plus the follow up meetings will be very useful in putting all the plans in place
30th April 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Since he was a pup of 8 weeks Scamp has suffered from fearful aggression. We tried different dog behaviourists but to no avail. We spent a lot of money on these people. My son and I have been searching the internet to find someone who could actually help. We came across Bark Busters, so I gave them a ring. I was put through to the trainer for my area. Lynn Prentice, we agreed a time and date .approximately 1.5 of Lynn's tuition Scamp began to be calmer. After following Lynn's care plan for Scamp, which I do daily, and lead work, Scamp is turning into the GDS that we really wanted, calm and a pleasure to take out on walks. I continue to follow Lynn's care plan. Money well spent. Thanks alot Lynn.

6 months ago we rang Lynn to help train our 18month old Staffordshire bull terriers, I was at the stage of thinking of rehoming them because I didn't know what to do.We couldn't walk them together,they constantly pulled,were aggressive towards other dogs and each other,they didn't listen to anything we said and every time anybody came round they would jump all over them.We couldn't even sit down without them leaping all us and the sofas .
Now with the help of Lynn's training we can walk them without being dragged everywhere ,family and friends come round without being jumped on and harrassed.Both Bonnie and Riley will lay on their bed or mat when told.
We are now starting to work on walking them together which is something we never thought we'd be able to do and we know it's going to take hard work and commitment but seeing how far they have come in the last 6 months I have complete trust in Lynn and her training methods,

16th April 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
The training was useful and provided some brilliant hints and tips. Lynn was excellent and very patient both with me and Wellington. As a result of using the techniques from the session with Lynn I have seen a marked improvement in Wellington and feel more confident in myself as I now have the tools to deal with problems and issues as they crop up .
8th April 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
I don't really know where to start.. Our 2 mini Schnauzers totally ruled the house and us. We had allowed them to own and control us and our daily lives . Walking them both become no pleasure as they would bark at everyone and everything and we cringed when a visitor came to the door, due to the barrage of barking that would take place. In desperation, we contacted Bark Busters and arranged a session with Lynn. We connected with Lynn straight away and took on board all she told us . Fast forward 2 weeks, dogs now sleep on their own beds, have much clearer boundaries and we are working on issues around ownership of front door, hallway and basic individual lead work. Our dogs appear to be happier, content and less anxious . Ruby our younger dog, age 8 had been running around like a headless chicken protecting Millie , the 11 year old, minding the family and the house, no wonder she was so stressed!!!
We are committed to this training and our goal is to take 2 well behaved, happy, stress free dogs on holiday to Cornwall in November. We opted for the lifetime option, for peace of mind for continuous support if needed.
