What dog owners are saying about us
From the moment Lynn arrived we knew we were in hands of a professional. She took time to learn about the background of the situation and clearly demonstrated the actions we needed to take and worked through the steps with us until we understood. The main issue was fear based aggression to strangers coming into the house and persistent barking when the doorbell rang. The dogs responded pretty quickly. By the end of the session we had a calm dog in his bed with a ‘stranger’ in the house for the first time. It was nothing complicated just needed to be shown and now we have to be consistent as a family. Really liked Lynn’s no nonsense approach and can’t thank her enough for giving us hope that this can be resolved.S.T., Luton, Bedfordshire (Testimonial)14th July 2019
One week on and I’m still shocked how instant the changes were. After a 3 hour visit Barney was responding immediately and positively to the new rules. It really is changing our lives for the better and we have a much more calm and content dog!G.W., Harlow, Essex (Testimonial)19th May 2019
We are very impressed with Lynn, she is very professional and we have seen instant improvements in our Puppy's behaviour . Lynn is very knowledgeable and made the whole family join in the training including my teenage sons. It was a real eye opener.C.A., Hatch End, London (Testimonial)31st October 2018
Lynn has been fantastic within one day there is already a dramatic improvement in all aspects. she has left me feeling positive and that there is light at the end of the tunnel.M.P., Waltham Abbey, Essex (Testimonial)29th August 2018
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!E.L., Harlow, Essex (Testimonial)3rd August 2018

We saw results with Raven from the very first minute Lynn walked through the door! It was a surprise to us to learn that we were under Raven's thumb ... we've been using positive training and thought we were doing a good job, when actually we've not been providing the right leadership for her. Lynn explained that we were letting Raven dictate terms, so the first thing to do would be to demonstrate we were in charge, then provide correction when Raven exhibited an unwanted behaviour. Right from that first night, we gave a single correction and since then she's been sleeping through without any problems. She's walking much better on lead too, now that we know how to correct her pulling. We're still working on extended separation, but from the very first day we got a consistent 30 minutes and we're steadily building up to an hour ... something undreamt of a week ago! I can't thank Lynn and Bark Busters enough for showing us how to be better puppy parents! It was well worth the money and it's made all our lives so much better.

Really insightful advice and training plan which has already made a dramatic difference between our 2 dogs. Having felt quite bleak about the possibility of resolving the problems between our 2 dogs, I now feel optimistic we can make it work.

Lynn was very good, she spent 3 hours with us finding out about Luna and explaining why she was barking and lunging at people and other dogs. Luna responded well and learnt quickly. Her behaviour improved greatly even in such a short time. Lynn taught us the techniques and left us with detailed instructions to continue daily training.

24th July 2019Lynn Prentice dealt with:
As soon as Lynn arrived, I knew we had made a great investment in the future happiness of our new 11 week old puppy. He had already developed some bad habits and we wanted to ensure we were giving him the best chance at becoming a calm dog. He is a stubborn and confident little dog already so we wanted him to start learning some good manners especially as he will grow into a much larger dog and will be socialised in a number of scenarios where we don't want him to be stressed. I also have a nieces and nephews so wanted some advice on how to manage him around excitable children. Its been a day since Lynn has visited and we started putting the lessons into practice straight away which has meant a calmer environment for us all already. Thank you Lynn for helping us out and we look forward to more productive sessions with Rupert. I would thoroughly recommend BarkBusters to anyone *****

Absolutely excellent. Lynn definitely knew her stuff and trained us as a family at the same time as Bear. We couldn't believe the difference in him in such a short period. We are continuing with the suggested training techniques, and Bear has improved even more in this time. I would definitely recommend Lynn as a trainer, and in fact I already have. Thank you very much, things actually seem a lot more positive now.
