St Albans Dog Training and Behaviour Therapist


Welcome to dog training St Albans, I'm Lynn Prentice your local Bark Busters Master Dog Behaviour Therapist and I have been helping dog owners like you for the past 10 years. During this time I have helped over 3,000 owners and their dogs, of all shapes and sizes, with a myriad of problems. There can be many reasons why a beloved pet begins to show traits that you may not welcome, barking, jumping, pulling, aggression, separation anxiety, sibling rivalry, recall or just selective hearing. It is my job to establish the cause and then form a personal training plan for you to follow, to start to tackle the unwanted behaviour. Maybe you are a new owner of a puppy and you want to make sure that your new four-legged family member gets the right start in life.

If you're looking for professional dog training near you, then you've found the right place. When I visit, l will take a comprehensive history of your dog and coach you on how to effectively communicate with your dog. You will be amazed at the difference in what you think you are saying to your dog and what they are actually hearing. Armed with your personal plan you will be able to start to work with your dog to achieve your goals. You can be reassured that I return to help and support you, free of charge, under the Bark Busters Support Guarantee, that you have purchased.

I know what it's like to have a challenging dog. Before I became a Bark Busters dog behaviour therapist and trainer in the St Albans area, my large boxer, Ralph, had many behaviour problems. As much as I love Ralf, I cannot pretend that he did not have some worrying behaviours as he was growing up. He liked to chase sheep, he didn’t like to come back until he was ready, and he was inclined to show aggression towards dogs he took a dislike to. However, with the help of Bark Busters I got these behaviours problems under control and life with him became a pleasure. He went on to become a Pets as Therapy Dog and I became one of the Bark Busters pack along with being a temperament assessor for Pets as Therapy and Hertfordshire Police.

If you are looking for puppy training classes near you, then why not consider my home training. Group training classes can be very stressful for your pup and if they become disruptive in the classes you can often be asked to leave. My lessons are informative and provides puppies with the very best start in life.

My home puppy classes cover topics such as:

  • Fast and best toileting habits
  • Appropriate diet and good food manners
  • Recall - coming when called
  • Gate and door control
  • Sit, stay and down training
  • Correct holding of the lead and walking
  • Walking to heel
  • Distance control (staying with you when there are other distractions)
  • How to successfully socialise your puppy
  • How to de-sensitise, for example, vacuum cleaners and car travel etc…
  • Protecting your puppy from being overwhelmed by people or other dogs
  • Accustoming to handling, bathing and grooming
  • Bad behaviour prevention and management, e.g. jumping up, mouthing, play biting and chewing etc…

Take a look at what dog owners are saying about me and you can have the confidence that I can help you to resolve you dog's behaviour problems. I look forward to meeting you soon.
