We cannot say enough good things about Robert. He came into our home and was encouraging, enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable and experienced, understanding and compassionate. Many people are quick to criticize, but Robert is quick to teach! He is genuinely concerned and caring, and we look forward to continuing to work with him. Permalink

Robert was wonderful with Winnie and us from the very beginning. Our dog has a lot of anxiety and fear, and Robert was able to address all her issues with effective exercises to help her take steps forward, while also teaching us how to better understand and communicate with her. We felt very defeated before working with Robert, but he was positive, patient and helped us gain a much better grasp on why certain behaviors were happening and how to approach and then shift them-which gave us all more confidence. I would highly recommend Robert to anyone looking to explore training. Permalink

Trainer note from Robert : Winnie breaks my heart. She is a sweet pup. She is just scared but you guys are making some really nice progress with her. We'll get there!

Robert is amazing! He was able to see exactly who our dogs are, and help us target the behaviors we are trying to correct. Our pups enjoyed our session, and I love that we used praise, instead of treats to motivate their behaviors. It’s easy to praise your dog, and love them up, rather than carry a bag of treats around. We look forward to continuing our work to help our dogs further build a relationship together, and help them both find their place in our pack. ❤️ Permalink

Robert certainly lives up to the title Master Dog Trainer! Within one session, our Stella now follows our lead and is responding to us learning to lead and speaking dog to her. I highly recommend this for anyone struggling to be in charge of their dogs. Robert is knowledgeable, patient and responsive. Highly recommended Permalink

Trainer note from Robert : Thank you :) Stella is actually very sweet. She was just scared based on her previous experiences before she came to you. She will get better one day at a time.

My wife and I were at wits' end with our 11 year old dog Ginger's barking. Ginger would bark on end every time the door bell rang. This barking would continue when a visitor would enter our residence. As soon as Robert arrived for the first lesson, he recognized this behavior and began to address it. Robert provided direction and instruction to my wife and myself throughout the session. As we began the session we listened and followed Robert's direction and we immediately saw Ginger responding. Through verbal instruction and body language we were able to curtail Ginger's disruptive barking. By the end of the session it was almost as if we had a new dog. Robert explained that the work with Ginger does not stop at the end of the lesson. He provided instructional material and a thorough explanation of the homework we needed to follow up on with Ginger. In the 6 days since the lesson and my mother and mother in-law have come to visit and both could not believe the difference in Ginger's behavior. I wholeheartedly recommend Robert to any dog owners that are having issues with their pets. Permalink

I’m blown away by the difference one visit with Robert Machi made with our Roxy!! Five minutes after he arrived I was able to stop Roxy from jumping on Robert and by the time the session ended I was able to walk Roxy without her pulling me down the street screaming at her to stop! I was also taught how to stop Roxy from running to get out the front door. I can honestly recommend Robert to anyone that needs help with their dog(s). I’m looking forward to having Robert come back for other issues with Roxy like letting my cat come and go without starting WWIII. Permalink

Trainer note from Robert : Thank you so much. You guys did so well. Roxy is a sweetheart. I know she did beautifully but it's a slow process to make a permanent change so keep up the good work!

I am so glad that I reached out to BarkBusters and connected with Robert. I recently adopted a 2 year old Chihuahua “Applesauce” who has separation anxiety. In addition, Applesauce will regularly not respond to my commands/will pull on his leash during walks. Robert instantly picked up on Applesauce’s behavior and throughout our session provided extremely helpful tips and exercises. I saw a change in response instantly with the modifications that he presented. In addition to being extremely knowledgeable and patient, he has an excellent demeanor in terms of his energy but also in regards to accountability. I strongly recommend BarkBusters/working with Robert! He exceeded all expectations! Permalink

Robert has such a calm, understanding nature, which made our pup so responsive to training! We were able to ask as many questions as needed and have felt supported ever since our first meeting. Permalink
