meet your specialist trainer Robert Machi
Bark Busters Home Dog Training servicing Brooklyn, Manhattan & Staten Island
I'm writing to let you know what a stellar Dog Trainer you have in Robert Machi. I relocated from Texas to New York in August of 2012. My dear dog Fletcher is a rescued Border Collie mix with some deep other - dog fear and aggression issues. My fiancé, John Quinones, and I enlisted the help of Bark Busters in Dallas. We anticipated that Fletcher would have a difficult time transitioning to a high rise in Manhattan, and indeed he did! When John reached out to your company about our desperate situation, you sent us an Angel in Robert Machi. He is a true professional - kind, knowledgeable, and conscientious. He is the only trainer since I adopted Fletcher in 2007 that has made true life changes for the dog, and for us. We have learned so much, and continue to learn. Fletcher is much calmer and happier which means the world to me! You probably already know what an asset you have in Robert, but I wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sending us your "Dog Whisperer". He makes a long trip into the city from an outer borough simply because we requested one of your best, and that he is. Warmest holiday wishes to everyone at Bark Busters! We continue to recommend you to fellow dog owners. All the best, Deanna White, John Quinones, Fletcher, and RosieDeanna and John Q.March 5 2014

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.
