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!
I appreciated the quick response to my request for help and the distance the trainer had to travel to my home. I was pleased how quickly my dog responded to the commands and am grateful that I found a service to change my dog's behaviour.

Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say “Thank You” for yesterday’s training. It was very informative and interesting and to see Duke behave the way he did was truly amazing. Well my first morning with him on this new path was awesome – I was able to get dressed and ready for work with him in the bedroom and he didn’t even try to get me at all!!!! He tried to get the cat when we first got up but I quickly put a “BAH” on that and he ignored Chico the rest of the time that I was getting ready. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that our first night and morning went well and I am totally impressed with this system.

I had heard of Bark Busters a few years ago, and when a friend was having difficulty with her dog I suggested she check the company out. Then I realized that I was having some challenges that would benefit too! I contacted Bark Busters, and they spend about 45 minutes on the telephone with me talking about our situation, and made arrangements to come to our home within a few days notice.
The training was very well explained and demonstrated and my trainer went above and beyond what the fee covered, including some other dogs we were dog sitting for a few weeks. It gave me the knowledge and confidence to do a better job and release the stress my own dog was feeling. I felt that we made great progress over the first few weeks and went right back to that friend to tell her to immediately book the training! I will keep reminding her until she does - it works.
