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!!
3rd November 2013Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Patience and understanding was given to both us and our Rusty.
We found Lynn to be very clear and precise with the training each excersize and command were explained and handled in a professional way.
1st October 2013Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Fro the moment I picked up the phone and spoke to Lynn I felt reassured and supported with taking care of my new cockerpoo puppy.
She quickly scheduled our first appointment for the Saturday which was fantastic.
Lynn has given my husband and I so much confidence as first time dog owners.
We have been given wonderful advice and strategies personalised to us and our home.
I cant praise or thank Lynn enough for all her advice and support.
100% recommended to anyone with a new puppy
30th September 2013Lynn Prentice dealt with:
It was a real eye opener discovering the reasoning behind Wolfy's bad behaviour. Now we can really focus on putting things right by focusing on what Lynn has taught us.
Wolfy is already showing an improvement and we look forward to continuing with the training and seeing the results

Immediate improvement in Jenny's behaviour. She now gives on command, walks to heel, does not pull. A much calmer dog and happier owners.
Lynn put all the training instructions across clearly patiently and in a pleasant manner.
My dog is an 11 year old rescue Border Terrier, proof that you can teach an old dog new tricks.
24th September 2013Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Very friendly. Nice to know she is at the end of the phone for any help needed
27th August 2013Lynn Prentice dealt with:
From the start Lynn could identify straight away the issues we was facing with Buster. After 4 hours training we already started to notice Busters behaviour improve. Using the vocal techniques has really worked, we look forward to seeing more improvement and further training with Lynn.
23rd August 2013Lynn Prentice dealt with:
Lynn was very professional and bonded very quickly with Muggle. She provided a lot of useful advice and nutrition tips. The presentational slides were useful in providing an insight into the world from a puppy's point of view and allowed us to adapt our home (slightly) better for his needs. The reassurance that Lynn is always contactable should further problems arise was brilliant and we would recommend Bark Busters to anyone with a naughty pup!
