What our Clients are saying about us
Lynn was terrific! She came in and immediately i could see a difference in the way Lola was responding. She put into perspective the reasons behind the different issues we were having with Lola. it was an incredible learning experience. It has been two weeks since the initial lesson and though there are have been times we both have faulted, but we just take a breath and get right back to the techniques that Lynn taught us. Over all there has been a huge change in Lola. She is definitely a calmer dog. Thanks Lynn!C.H., London18th April 2018
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!M.F., Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire15th March 2016
Lynn was straight talking to the point and we could see a difference almost immediately. It was clear she would take the time needed and really wanted to help us. Lynn was reassuring that we would be able to train our dog and very positive. After the session both us and Sydney were exhausted! very happy, excited and motivated to do the homework/training we had been left. We have finished our first day of training and the improvement already is amazing. Thank you Lynn! .. We know we will be able to get to where we would like to be :)J.O., Bedford, Bedfordshire14th June 2015
Before I found Barkbusters I had become very disheartened I had lots of people telling me that because Scooby is a lurcher “sighthound” he cannot be trained, he will always run off, you will never be able to walk him without a lead, he won’t come back etc etc. I phoned Barkbusters and Lynn got back to me that day and we arranged for her to come and see Scooby, she made me understand why he was behaving the way he was and it was because I had made him the leader of the pack, so he was constantly minding me around the house, he would cry when I left a room, follow me everywhere, and be aggressive towards other dogs. Within weeks I noticed a huge change in Scooby, his recall is excellent, we are still in the process of training but he is a completely different dog, it’s the best decision I have made. I would definitely recommend Lynn to others.A.W., Bedford, Bedfordshire27th January 2015
As soon as Lynn stepped into our house and did the first behavioural corrections to Bella we were immediately sold. Every step of the way we felt that Lynn knew exactly what she was talking about. After our first session we clearly feel confident that we're now on the right track to educate our dog.J.A., Harrow, Middlesex31st March 2014

Lynn really opened my eyes to why my dogs are behaving the way they do I have found the training tips so useful and have already seen results , I like knowing I can contact Lynn and get advice as and when I need it which puts my mind at ease
3rd August 2018Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn came across as very experienced and the dogs immediately responded to her so we were reassured straight away. With two dogs we were struggling but Lynn taught us simple but very effective methods to us, We have only been working with Bonnie and Dexter for a week but already our house is calmer and friends and family have noticed the difference. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone!

Lynn was very informative, in one week Gem has calmed down, she now walks good on a lead, she is off the furniture and our bed, Lynn was very good how she taught us what to do. Thank you

Really very effective. Lynn was firm but fair with dog and humans alike. Seems to have solved our issues so far
9th May 2018Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn explained everything and demonstrated the training very clearly, giving us dietary advice too. She took great pains to ensure that we understood how important posture and body language is in establishing strong leadership with our dog. We immediately ignored his attention-seeking behaviour indoors and this has ceased! The leash aggression is vastly improved around cars and is improving slightly with other dogs. His walking on the lead is so much better too, but still a fair way to go. We are really pleased with the progress so far.

Lynn had really useful information and training tips, I could see an instant improvement on Lana during our first session. We discussed every issue and Lynn demonstrated training techniques for all of them. I like the fact that the training is all about getting my dog to listen to me rather than food!

Excellent session, advice, training, attitude.
Lynn took the time to evaluate Gizmo's needs and our family's needs. She identified priorities and how would Gizmo respond to training. She carried out the training at the right pace for both G and me. Gizmo started responding immediately. I have continued training him daily. Slow but steady progress (but he is an adult dog!)

Lynn was fabulous with our dog Ecko from the moment she came into the house, she showed him who was boss.
Lynn helped us understand why we were experiencing aggression issues and really put us a ease to say we could train Ecko to be a happier less nervous dog.
We practiced "into bed" to create a safe place for Ecko which he would always go to when commanded. He loved this training as it was continuous treats and praise.
We also practiced muzzle training to give us an extra default should we feel we needed to resort to this which he loved less but was happy to comply.
Lynn made everything make sense and made it very clear how to help change Ecko's behaviour.
We were looking forward to having Lynn to come back and work with us and Ecko on his walking and lack of wanting to do it! Unfortunately, Ecko has since been diagnosed with cancer in his shoulder and we have had to put him to sleep. I advised bark busters of the situation and Lynn gave me a call to send her condolences and offer her support in our difficult time and heartbreak. It was unexpected and a very welcome offer of support and help as Ecko was a friend first before a dog and he has left a big gap in our family.
