Michelle Bailey and Linda Anderson-Thomas

Behaviour Therapists & Master Trainers

As life-long pet owners and dog rescuers, we first came to Bark Busters as clients. Both of our dogs had serious behaviour issues and we needed help. The results we saw from the training program were inspiring. So much so that we joined the team! Over the last 10 years, we've had the opportunity to help over 2500 families and their dogs.

Also Serving: Dundas, St. Catherines, Niagara Falls, Welland

What I love about my job

We love that “lightbulb” moment when dog owners realize there is a better way. You don’t need to struggle with your dog. We’ve both been there. We know what it’s like. Let us help you understand what’s going on, educate your dog, and have peace of mind that you always have support.

Why I became a trainer

Michelle had serious aggression problems with her Red Heeler mix, and a baby on the way. Faced with choosing between baby or dog, she contacted Bark Busters. Her trainer created a program with tools and techniques that resulted in a happy household.
Linda was living with a pack of three dogs with severe separation anxiety, fear aggression and sibling rivalry. Nothing was working until she contacted Bark Busters. After the first session, the techniques and insights into her dogs’ behaviours finally brought peace to her home. We can confidently say that Bark Busters changed both of our lives.

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...

Michelle Bailey is one of the most experienced dog trainers in the Hamilton and Niagara area. Michelle tells us why she loves helping dogs and helping people using the Bark Busters dog training system.

Linda just gets it. She speaks and understands dog but is also such a people person - Lisa H." "Michelle is the most patient and passionate trainer we have ever met - Stephanie Z.
