Dog training in Brampton, Mississauga, Caledon, Bolton

Kathleen McKay

Behaviour Therapist & Master Trainer

I have been a Bark Busters trainer since 2018. I love that I get to spend my time helping dogs and their families. Like many other Bark Buster trainers, I began my journey as a client. I had spent most of my career in corporate sales and after seeing the results in my own dogs, I realized it was time to do something different. When I’m not working, I spend time with my pack (dogs and humans), reading a good book and taking pictures.

What I love about my job

I can’t imagine not having a dog in my life. Helping to strengthen the bonds between dogs and their humans is right up my alley. I love teaching people the tools to communicate with their dogs effectively. It creates confidence and leads to happier lives for everyone.

Why I became a dog trainer

I grew up with family dogs that were always well-trained. As an adult with my own dogs, I tried many different training methods and did a lot of reading to become more informed. Despite all of this, I couldn’t solve the issues I was having when I brought my adult dog and puppy together. One visit with Bark Busters really shifted the dynamic in my household. My dogs started listening to me and getting along with each other. Once that was cleared up, it was so much easier to learn from my trainer and teach the dogs in subsequent sessions. A dog can bring so much joy to life and I love helping people improve their relationships with them.

My areas of expertise include:

  • Puppy training
  • Separation anxiety in dogs
  • Stopping excessive barking
  • Dog aggression and aggression toward humans
  • Leash training, including leash pulling
  • Stopping dogs from jumping on people
  • Food aggression in dogs and resource guarding
  • Reactive dog training
  • General obedience training
  • And more…

Our trainer Kathleen is phenomenal. Our time together has allowed us to garner so much knowledge and understanding coupled with access to the necessary tools to enable success. In addition to that, we had fun while doing it. We saw changes in our dog’s behaviour from our first interaction. Did I mention that Kathleen is phenomenal?
