Brenda Ray - Local expert for Bark Busters Home Dog Training Barrie.
“Informed dog owners have happier dogs!”
Brenda has been working with Bark Busters Home Dog Training since 2006 and has helped over a thousand dogs and families share happier lives. Her success lies in training owners to train their dog. That’s the only way to ensure issues stay resolved and everyone stays happy for the long-term. She active in volunteering time to the OSPCA and local shelters. She regularly contributes articles to community newspapers and was a guest speaker at All About Pets 2010 and Dogfest 2010.
As a child, Brenda loved animals and dogs in particular. Her first success as a teenager was with her standard poodle, Peppy, who cleaned up at local performance shows. Growing up. After being married, Chester, a happy little terrier cross, was soon welcomed into her young family. Growing up with pets has instilled affection for four-footed critters in both her children who, now grown, love having dogs of their own.
It’s fitting that this dog-loving family oriented woman is now working closely with both in an important way. “No one’s happy when a dog is misbehaving or disobedient—not the pet and certainly not that pet’s family. Much like kids, dogs require knowledgeable guidance to feel secure. In the wild, dogs know their place in the pack and feel safely protected there.”
With a degree in Computer Science, Brenda chose work in a related field while raising her family and providing a loving home for the wonderful pets that have been part of her life. “But now I’ve found a way to work with dogs every day in a purely positive way and at the same time, help families have happier, more fulfilling relationships with their dogs. It’s a win-win!”
“Bark Busters philosophy is an excellent fit for me,” Brenda goes on. “Through our exceptional methodology, we’ve created a specialized program that amazingly, within minutes, transforms pets from seemingly incorrigible to cooperative and content. Whoever thinks you can’t teach an old dog new tricks hasn’t tried the Bark Busters way.”
The furry friend who is part of your life deserves Bark Busters capable care and gentle behaviour modification. “Pets enrich our lives, are good for our health, give us another reason to get up in the morning and love us unconditionally. Improving their well-being is a sound investment.”
Every dog has its day—let your dog’s begin with Bark Busters and The Rays!
Since the minute Bark Busters left our house, Gibson was a different dog! We are all much more suited to our new positions in the pack. Gibson seems more relaxed and willing to let me take the lead and that makes me relax! We are much MUCH less stressed out and I would and will recommend Bark Busters to anyone and everyone with dogs. Every dog owner should have the information that Bark Busters provided us with and I can't thank you enough! - Rachel B.

I called Bark Busters because I was in a sitiuation where I had to move to a house that already had two dogs. My shepoo was not getting along with them and in fact we had a very scary altercation with one of the dogs. I decided that I needed help to correct this situation. I called Bark Busters and they came over to my house. Harley started to improve almost immediately with the simple tasks of waiting at the top of the stairs and waiting to go out the front door. The next week Bark Busters came with me over to the house where I will be staying. The dogs were perefectly well behaved .I spent the better part of the day and night over there on saturday and on my trainer's suggestion the dogs are on leads when in the house and separated when there is no one around. I am hoping that as the training progresses I will be able to feel comfortable with the dogs off lead. It is a good program.

Our trainer was incredibly thorough with the process and how to go about it. He spent a lot of time with me and my dogs and gave me the confidence to go ahead with the training. -
