My name is Kelly Pollard and I am your local therapist of Bark Busters Home Dog Training London, St. Thomas and surrounding areas. I first came to Bark Busters nine years ago as a client who desperately needed to get my 9 month old dachshund (Leo) to stop barking. I've had dachshunds before and they can be VERY big barkers. This time it was imperative to stop the barking because Leo has a serious medical condition which is made worse when he barks.
I came into the world of dog ownership many years ago and quite frankly, I am smitten with them. I find the canine brain fascinating and watched many, many t.v. shows and read lots of books on behavior training but I still couldn't manage to communicate with my dogs - to make them understand I didn't need them to bark. This is where Bark Busters helped me. In a small space of time and with a little work - my dogs are much calmer, more responsive and most importantly -- quieter! The satisfaction of having a well tuned relationship with your dog is amazing!
I was a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse for 30 years, working with families, and caring for their sick and premature babies. I became skilled at teaching the parents how to handle and care for their tiny, precious children. I will
give the same respect and compassion to you and your dog as I did to those little babies and their families. I look forward to helping you and your dogs.
As a fully trained Bark Buster, I will coach you in the knowledge, and tools you need to communicate with your dog in a language he understands. This ensures that unwanted behaviors get resolved and stays resolved.
We think that when we bring a dog into our lives, they will eventually understand our language and understand what we want them to do (and not do). But dogs don't speak "Human" so we need to learn to speak their language so we can communicate with them, and understand them as well.
Bark Busters methods are effective and easy to use. It is a patented approach which has been successful for almost 30 years! We have the skills to diagnose any dog, any age and any issue. Call today to get more information or to book a lesson. Your dog will thank you for it.
Kelly helped us to communicate better with our dog right away, and we were able to see an improvement in how we manage our dog's behaviors within the first session!

We would never have believed bark busters program would work with a pack of six dogs....but it’s does. We always believed that one of the dogs had to be the boss....wrong. We are now the boss and home life has improved 100%.

Kelly has been great! She answers all our questions and does not just tell us to correct certain behaviours but fully explains why we should and why our dog does these behaviours in the first place.
We have seen such a difference in our dog since day one and are looking forward to seeing continued improvements as we progress through our Bark Busters training as a team.
