2nd April 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
We came across Bark Busters in Google and after toying with local obedience classes or having the benefits of in-house training and support from Lynn at Bark Busters, decided to commit to her Puppy Management Programme. We have been absolutely delighted by the service and information we have received so far. Lynn initially spent over 3 hours with us and covered absolutely everything we need to know about raising and managing a puppy, and is subsequently available to talk to us or visit whenever we need her to for the next year. She is an incredibly passionate and well informed trainer and educator, and in no time had our puppy paying attention and responding. Within a few days I had another small issue I needed help with and Lynn was available within a few hours to offer advice. Hand on heart I honestly feel this has been the best decision we have made since getting a puppy - and we look forward to raising her into a well mannered and obedient member of the pack. If you're serious about having a dog and want to ensure that he or she fits in with you as opposed to you fitting in with him or her then I'd give Bark Busters a call.

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.

I actually can't believe how much of a difference a 2 hour training session made. My dog Dexter had become aggressive and was barking at EVERYTHING - and Lynn explained to me how he was trying to protect both me and the new dog we had brought in to the family. In a very short amount of time she was banging on our front door with only a single bark from him, and he was no longer rushing to the door.
Another thing that was driving me mad was him pulling on the lead and again she showed me a really simple technique that works every time.
She has shown me how to always be in charge so that he doesn't feel the need to do the job for me. We had a visitor around for the first time in months at the weekend and although he barked a few times, after 10min they were in the garden playing fetch!
I'm still working on things with them on a daily basis but it is getting much easier.
20th March 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn was really helpful from my first phone call with her. She was realistic and optimistic which gave me confidence to book her.
She has given me and my family the skills to improve Tia's life and our enjoyment of her. She was able to observe us with Tia and point out positive corrections. We have worked hard with the skills taught and it is already making a difference. Tia would not drop a ball or toy and will now do this on command- she can walk side by side on lead and will come when called. All as a result of the simple instructions we were taught by Lynn.
I feel more confident and Tia is a happier and more obedient dog as a result.
Lynn also suggested good dietary tips- which have led to Tia gaining weight and being a more contented dog, even after 4 weeks.
I highly recommend Lynn :-)
18th March 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
When Lynn came to meet with us Frank (our beautiful Boxer) was very jumpy - jumping, even sometimes leaping at us and other people when he greeted them, he also practically walked us when on the lead. It's coming up to 2 and a half weeks and already there is a massive improvement. Lynn has been brilliant with the homework she left with us making it very clear about what we need to do which is becoming very effective. Lynn is always on hand should we need to contact her, should she not be available we have always had a call back the same day. We are feeling very positive about Frank's future with us.

4th February 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn explained everything we were doing wrong in a way that was easy to understand and it had an immediate effect on the behaviour of Lola. We're very happy with progress so far but are reassured that Lynn is still there to support us.

26th January 2014Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Amazed. After several months of a 4am wake up call every day from our Husky pup Willow, we couldn't believe that after the first visit it all stopped! The weeing in the house as well as the scatty barking has also stopped. Pixie (our Boxer pup) is taking a bit longer with her lead training but I'm sure we will get there soon enough. They have both put on weight due to the change of diet, and look much more healthy (as they were both under weight). Lynn explained everything really well and showed us how the pups see things. Would recommend Lynn to anyone having problems with their dogs.

Lynn was amazing. At first we all were very dubious of how much Daisy could be helped due to extreme fear and need to protect but within the lesson Lynn was banging on the door with only one bark from her which is unheard of. She is peacefully laying down, listening to commands like we have always prayed she would do. Thank you so much for your time and expertise!
