About Michael & Lydia
Home Dog Training in Minneapolis & St. Paul!
Meet Michael and Lydia O’Leary, Dog Behavioral Therapists and Dog Trainers for Bark Busters Home Dog Training in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and their northern suburbs.
Let us introduce ourselves and tell you a little bit about our story. My name is Michael O’Leary. I was raised in Eden Prairie and am a proud St. John’s University graduate. My wife, Lydia grew up in Sauk Rapids, MN and graduated from St. Cloud State University. We found the Bark Busters method after trying countless other training methods with our dog, Raleigh. Like some of our clients, we had a dog that pulled nonstop on leash, jumped on everyone at the front door, and had a difficult time listening when she was too excited. We knew we needed to get her anxious behavior under control before we grew our family. After seeing the results with our own dog, we couldn’t wait to get involved to help others.
Our dog training system is based on natural canine communication which dramatically increases the pace of learning without using harsh or painful methods. 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.
Dog-friendly methods. Bark Busters uses positive, dog-friendly communication techniques that dogs instinctively understand. This typically speeds up the education process, without using treats, clickers, or any harsh or physical methods. We will never use prong, pinch, shock (e-collar), or choke collars, nor will we ever force a dog to do anything. We help clients teach their dogs to think and make good choices. The training method is so effective, that immediate positive results are often seen within the first 2-3 hours of training.
In home training. Dogs learn best when they can focus on the dog owner and dog trainer without distractions. In their home, dogs are less stressed, and therefore we can focus on the issues and they learn very quickly. It's also important for you to know how to control your dog in "real life" situations and we will assist with this by going to public places if desired and when ready.
Any age, any breed, any problem. Bark Busters was initially founded to help people whose dogs had behavioral problems and were in danger of being abandoned or euthanized. This mission is one of the reasons why we are here today. Whatever your specific need is, we are here to help.
Veterinarian recommended. Please feel free to contact your veterinary clinic for a reference, the majority of the clinics in the area personally recommend us and Bark Busters to their clients.
