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.

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.

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.

There has been a great improvement in Rosie's walking which was immediate and she now doesn't pull at all. She does still tends to get a little way ahead and needs to be corrected. The other issues have also improved but at a more gradual rate but still having some problems with recall and she is very easily distracted. Continuing to work hard practising.

22nd March 2016Lynn Prentice dealt with:
The session was very helpful and very thorough. Everything was easy to follow and understand. We covered all the issues I have been having with Margot and she responded very well to the techniques used.
15th March 2016Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Wow!!!! We didn't expect such immediate results but with Lynn's guidance and demonstrations we were amazed at the difference in our dogs behaviour. Molly (the rescue westie) has been with us for nearly 5 years and was 'top dog', whereas Hugo (the pug) was a 6 year old rescue with severe separation anxiety. On top of Molly always barking when someone came to the door and not always being friendly with other dogs whilst walking on the lead, we now had sibling rivalry, a dog who had no training whatsoever, and having to sleep downstairs to stop Hugo whining and crying all night if he wasn't with me! On We took onboard everything Lynn told us - from changing their food to how we interacted with them - and the results were fast and made having the dogs even more pleasurable. None of it was difficult and we have recommended Bark Busters to other dog owners as a result. Thank you Lynn - you've been fantastic!
