3rd August 2016Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn took control immediately, showing us the training methods to use, in assisting us in getting our lives back, rather than Bella dictating us.
She did warn us that it will take weeks to teach Bella how we want her to behave, which is reassuring, rather than think that we are doing something wrong, on the days when Bella doesn't want to co-operate.

Lynn is a determined teacher who has the best interests for your dog in mind. She gave clear precise instructions in how to continue with the training and her knowledge was extensive.
4th June 2016Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Excellent session. Very informative and enlightening .Demonstrations and instruction was carried out in a relaxed but professional manner that was not stressful for the dog,(or us). The difference in the behaviour of the dog was noticeable at once

26th April 2016Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn came on 20th April 20016 Our 10 month old Golden Retriever (which is our 4th Golden) Female “Whisper” had been causing us some headaches with her barking whenever we left the room or went out without her,( causing complaints from our neighbours) her constant jumping up and nipping me (never my husband)also waking early (which she had never done before the last 2 weeks) and then whining to get us all up anything from 4.30 onwards. She is a very confident dog.
Within minuets Lynn had assessed her and started to work using their collar and lead, she soon put her in her place (gently) and you could see that Whisper was obeying her .
Lynn was very thorough with all her explanations and soon had us trying the same techniques.
After 3 hours we had a different dog, very quiet all evening, slept in her crate until 7am next morning, and no barking, and her behaviour has been much the same since.
We have continued with the training and 99% of the time she is ok, occasional bark which we soon correct and again occasional jumping up when excited but also usually corrected.
We feel we still have plenty to learn and will have to keep on asserting our place as leader of the pack not Whisper)
We would have no hesitation in recommending Lynn

From the off Lynn got to grips with Mimi's barking problems and showed me some invaluable techniques for addressing the underlying issues causing this behaviour which I have been using since our first training. Lynn's teaching methods are clearly explained which has given me confidence and Mimi's behaviour continues to improve. Lynn is an amazing trainer and I am only sorry I didn't find her months ago.
25th April 2016Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lyn was very thorough, listened to our requirements and gave us effective solutions that are really beginning to work well for us and Buddy.
The day following the visit, Lyn phoned to check if her suggestion to resolve the issue of where Buddy slept overnight was successful. After the following night, which had left Buddy unhappy, I spoke to Lyn on the phone and she suggested an alternative arrangement, which has so far worked well.
18th April 2016Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Buddy responded well to the trainer and to the methods she used. We were surprised how quickly her methods worked while she was here.We feel positive that with a lot of hard work and re-training we will get there.
14th April 2016Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn was wonderful, very patient with me and my brother. She explained that Molly was not aggressive, but taken on the job of protecting us and the house. She reacted in a much calmer manner when she sees other dogs.
12th April 2016Lynn Prentice dealt with:
I must admit I was very worried about spending this amount of money on a dog trainer and wondered if it would actually help. But the moment Lynn came into our home she took charge for our two dogs and was quick to let them no who was the pack leader, Lynn quickly identified our dogs issues and opened our eyes to a few things such as our dog Reg we believed to be the confident leader was actually a nervous dog but was our little dog Rolo's minder making us believe he was so confident, as Lynn said our dogs are great people trainers getting us to do what they wanted. Lynn showed us training techniques to use to get our dogs to walk to heal, stop barking at the door an others. I was amazed at how quickly after Lynn showed us these techniques that our dogs actually walked next to me with out pulling my arms off. By using these training techniques our dogs now seem more calmer and now no there place in the family. To top everything off Lynn suggested to change our dogs food from dry food to a raw food diet to help Rolo as she kept chewing on her paws making them soak and sore believing Rolo may have a food allergy, this change its great not only has Rolo not chewed her paws but both dogs poo has reduced massively. I am so glad we chose to used Barkbuster and Lynn is amazing we will continue with the training and look forward to our next lesson.
