meet your specialist trainer Robert Machi
Bark Busters Home Dog Training servicing Brooklyn, Manhattan & Staten Island
Hi Rob, I just wanted to thank you so much for your fantastic tips and guidance regarding training Shammy and Emmy. My husband and I were so impressed by the way you were so "down to earth" and really so very helpful to us. We loved the way you trained us to handle Shamrock and that you were not judgmental about the mistakes we have been making with him throughout the years. We practiced the door bell and knock exercise and Shamrock (although being totally wiped out) acted favorably to our calling him back and standing by our side. It really was amazing! I can't wait to practice the Walking with him exercise tonight and practice the exercises you showed us. By the way, after you left last night, Emmy walked up to the Wee Wee mat and did her business twice and again first thing this morning! She started circling and we guided her to the mat and she was great! She did her business like a pro! I have to tell you that at first, my husband was very skeptical about dog training Shamrock because of Shammy's age and many health issues, but after he met you and you showed us your way of teaching, he is totally impressed with you and has become a true believer! We know that with practice, Shamrock will have far less anxiety and will be a happier family member! We will strive to be confident Pack Leaders! I just wanted to thank you so much and tell you how amazing you really are! Please forward this email to your company's Founders so they will know how excellent a Trainer you really are and how pleased we are with you. Your thoroughness, your communication response time and training are impeccable! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart! Warmest Regards, Sue P.S. We really hope you get on Shark Tank because this program is remarkable! We will definitely recommend you and your Company to all of our family and friends!Susan M.November 11 2016

I love what I do – helping keep a happy home. When a dog has behavioral issues, it can really disrupt a family. Sometimes, it tears families apart. Whether I am helping a puppy to fit into their new home or “teaching an old dog new tricks”, I truly enjoy it. In some cases, I am a dog’s “last chance” before they lose their home. I am saving a dogs’ lives.
I work with you and your dog in your home and teach you how to simply but effectively communicate with your dog while establishing a balance of love, trust and respect. I can’t guarantee results but I will do my best to teach you to how to understand your dog, why he or she has a behavioral issue and how to improve that issue. Sometimes, results are immediate and sometimes they can take time…as long as you are willing to trust me and you promise to “do the work” needed to help your pup.
Some issues I commonly work on are teaching dogs: how to greet guests (no jumping), helping lower aggression towards people or dogs, walking properly on leash, stopping dogs from running out their front door into the street, housetraining, dropping items and separation anxiety.
No matter what your dog’s issues may be, I will do my best to help you.

how we can help you and your dog
The Bark Busters Home Dog Training Methods helps solve dog behavior issues such as aggression towards people or other animals
- Cure embarrassing habits like barking, jumping up on people, scratching & whining at doors or inappropriate toileting.
- Create an obedient dog or puppy that will happily walk on the lead without tugging, sit or stay on command, and come immediately when called.
- Set off-limit areas for your dog.
- Reduce the stress of separation anxiety without the need for sedatives or drugs.
We teach you to communicate with your pet.
Blah, blah, blah, bad dog! blah blah. Do you think your dog isn't listening to you? Maybe you're simply not speaking his language. You may have heard of dog whisperer or dog listener techniques. The Bark Busters dog training method is based on the way dogs communicate with each other and how they learn from older, more important dogs in the pack. This is what makes our dog training unique and effective.
Why do we train in your home?
Your dog lives with a family, in a home. This is where he misbehaves most often so this is where training is most effective. Dogs learn by association. Bark Busters teaches your dog to listen in the home environment. If he does not listen at home, he will not listen outside your territory.
Training in your home is a one-on-one system without the distraction of other dogs or the stress of being sent away for training.
Of course, where you are experiencing problems outside the home such as pulling on the lead or dog aggression, we will set up controlled training situations in the park or wherever is most practical.
