24th December 2013Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Another really good session with Lynn, the girls are coming along nicely and I can see how the different aspects of the training come together to provide the results we are aiming for. Lynn was as patient as ever despite my ineptitude at times!!
We still have good days and some not so good, but the not so good are becoming fewer and fewer and the issues smaller .
The more you put into the training the more everyone gets out of it.
13th December 2013Lynn Prentice dealt with:
After reading impressive reviews about Lynn on the website we were looking forward to seeing what Lynn could do for our 18 month GSD Leo. Within an hour we were amazed at the change in Leo. Being able to greet someone into the house without him jumping up was huge for us. Lynn also stopped Leo attacking the hoover with ease as well as starting work on his pulling. We are a lot more confident now as a result. After the fist session we were recommending her to family!
1st December 2013Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn spent 4 hours with me and Castro on our first session and really enlightened me to the errors of my way not the dogs way!
Castro responded really well and a week into the training I have seen a HUGE improvement - still some way to go but I have every faith in Lynn and Castro
26th November 2013Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn was super and very patient, there was a marked improvement overnight which gave me a huge confidence boost. It is hard work and very time consuming(especially with two) but, if you love your dog as I love mine it's worth it. There is no overnight fix, they are both a work in progress, but we are getting there.

It has only been a few days since our first session but we are already seeing so many positive changes in both Rocky and Rebel. It was such an eye opener to how to train a dog. I would and have already recommended Lynn to friends and family to help train their dogs as well.

Lynn has been vital in helping me gain control of Rupert
15th November 2013Lynn Prentice dealt with:
After one session with Lynn the dogs are already getting better, its quite amazing thank you.
Our two boxers are lovely but we have spoilt them, they pull on the lead and rush to the front door when someone knocks my male boxer bit another dog and caused a lot of damage.
11th November 2013Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn was brilliant from the moment she walked in the house to meet Larry, she began training. I was very stressed to start with and nerve but Lynn put me at total ease. I didn't enjoy walking Larry as he pulled, bark and went mad when he saw another dog, even when the door bell rang I use to have to run to shut a door behind me.The work I have to do with Larry has worked wonders and it's only been the first full day and I am feeling very positive on the continuing work we have to do. I would recommend Lynn 100% very friendly and very honest , looking forward to our next meeting
8th November 2013Lynn Prentice dealt with:
We were at the end of our tether with Ernie. He had bitten all the members of the family and seemed to show random acts of aggression and we were all set to not have him anymore but as a last resort we opted to see if a dog trainer could help.
On reading the excellent reviews on Barkbusters we got in contact and Lynn came round on the same day.
The moment Lynn saw Ernie she immediately saw that he was a very nervous dog. She then talked to us for a good while discussing Ernies history from where we got him and what we wanted in regard to Ernie's training.
Lynn stayed with us for over 3 hours and by then we had the ground rules on how to
1. Stop Ernie barking constantly
2. Stop Ernie climbing on the furniture
3. Stop Ernie pulling on his lead
4. Make Ernie walk behind us on his lead
5. Make Ernie Come, Sit and Stay on Command and many other things
Lynn taught us how to talk to a dog and what to watch in regard to their body language. She showed us how to use the tone of our voices rather than treat bribes to get our dog to do what we wanted.
We immediately saw a massive change in Ernie form that very first night he was no longer barking
4th November 2013Lynn Prentice dealt with:
I was absolutely thrilled with Lynn Prentice training. Thank you so very very much. I loved the whole experience, being told WHY they barked (Protecting the house and me) which made sense, and therefore how to 'de-stress them'. They improved almost immediately. I also enjoyed the whole training format, which makes complete sense. Now that I have the simple tools of how to handle the puppies, I am finding them much easier to manage. It has also given me the enthusiasm to train them. They are responding really well. Lynn's strong and disciplined attiude helped enormously. Mothers should get the same training!!
