Welcome! We are Michael & Lydia O’Leary, Dog Behavioral Therapists and Dog Trainers for Bark Busters Home Dog Training in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and their northern suburbs.
We love helping our clients learn how to communicate effectively with their dogs in a natural way that builds a stronger bond, trust, and respect. Bark Busters trainers have worked with more than a million dogs and their dedicated owners. We would love to learn more about your needs and goals for your dog and family!
