meet your specialist trainer Robert Machi
Bark Busters Home Dog Training servicing Brooklyn, Manhattan & Staten Island
I first used Robert Machi for Dunkin' due to separation issues, very bad. Robert really observed and pointed out things going on with Dunkin, that had added to his anxiety. Recently, I had Robert back out because Dunkin bit someone. I thought he probably was protecting me, but the problem really was me! I didn't establish any boarders with Dunkin'. Robert was and is a very gentle person, no yelling at animals. He stayed, worked with us and believe it when I tell you by that evening, Dunkin was a different dog. He's happier too, he realizes he doesn't have to be involved in everything. Robert is amazing, I would tell anyone not to wait, get in touch with him and I promise he will solve your problem.Judy C.July 17 2017

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.
