About Mason & Esteffany

Houston Dog Trainers Mason and Esteffeny

Home Dog Training in Houston, TX!

Welcome. We are Mason Erwin and Esteffany Olivares, your Bark Busters Dog Trainers and Dog Behavioral Therapists in Houston.

About Mason Erwin

I have always had a passion for helping animals. Growing up, we had seven dogs and to me they were always family. Joining Bark Busters and being mentored by some of the top dog trainers in the country, and the world, has shown me how much I can contribute to my clients and their families. Working with dogs and their owners truly brings a sense of joy and fulfillment to my life. I look forward to showing you a better way to a better dog!

About Esteffany Olivares

I grew up in a very small town in Mexico where stray dogs are very common. This provided me with the opportunity to start helping dogs at a very young age. My grandfather and I always made sure that the dogs in our neighborhood had food and shelter, especially when storms would come through. At the age of 10 my family and I began to move back and forth between Mexico and the United States, so I never had the opportunity to own a dog in childhood.

Now, my partner in life, Mason, and I have an amazing Belgian Malinois mix, Honey, that has taught me the true meaning of love between a dog and its owner. And that is the reason why I do my job with so much joy and passion. I learned how fulfilling helping dogs can be and just how much they give back to us. The opportunity to join Bark Busters provided me with the ability to help families and their beloved dogs live a better life. This was the start of an incredibly rewarding life journey that gives dogs a second chance to live a stress free life, and their owners a sense of hope and relief. 

In addition to "speaking dog," I am also fluent in English and Spanish. I look forward to helping the Houston community and reaching even more families with my bilingual service.

Our nurturing, dog-friendly approach teaches you, the pet parent, the same natural communication methods that dogs understand instinctively. Our efficient, results-oriented, training program prioritizes clear communication and leadership while addressing issues in the locations they occur.

This means faster, longer-lasting solutions for you and your dog.

Dogs learn best in a familiar, safe environment, free of outside distractions and disruptions. That’s why we come directly to your home, on your schedule to build an effective foundation for better behavior. We work first to build an effective foundation for better behavior. We teach you how to communicate with your dog. Dogs naturally live in families and look their family leaders for guidance, safety, and love.

We teach you how to use friendly, canine leadership and to "speak dog" using your body language, voice tones, and timing so you and your dog communicate better! You will see results. You want to see a change in your dog’s behavior, preferably sooner rather than later.

Houston Client Reviews

See what our clients have to say

We have three Golden Retrievers whom all have their unique training issues. Mason immediately knew what to do and how to handle/interact with each one. Our first session was a little over 3 hours and Mason left us with our “homework” and the necessary skills to continue their training. We love the fact that no matter how much time passes, we can call and help will be there. Very much recommend Mason & Bark Busters!
Mason did a great job helping my husband and me train our two year old Australian Shepherd. He was thorough in his explanations and was able to help us in the moment. We loved that he took the time to see our needs (having our dog be aggressive on walks) and went on an actual walk with us, created distractions and continually monitored how we were doing, etc. I feel confident that we can take what we learned and apply it to our everyday life + feel secure that we have access to him as a trainer when/ if it is needed.
I was so impressed by Mason and Estaffany! They were so easy to work with and they made my Soba so happy! She warmed up to them right away and took direction beautifully! I adopted her and had her only a few days before we had our first session (which I highly recommend to prevent bad habits developing in a new environment) when adopting! I was so excited and so proud of how well Soba responded to the rules and the conditions we set! You would never guess that she had a rough background or had years of other environments with previous owners! I use a walker, and Soba is very sensitive to me, almost like a service dog's instincts.... and she responded beautifully to the new rules and behaviors I established with the help of this team!!! They are awesome and truly want the best for your pet! I would recommend them for any owner, new or experienced-- you can't go wrong with them! They are awesome!
I was pretty amazed at the change after our first session. Sadie responded very well to the training on the walk outside. First time I've led her on the walk, rather than vice versa. A+ experience!
Really enjoyed getting to know the history/reasoning behind yalls methodology. Esteffany was prompt, professional, and we are so thankful for the guidance. We are so excited to take what we have learned & implement these practices into our lives!
Esteffany did a wonderful job at explaining the principles behind the Bark Busters training program. She showed the corrective procedures and was very specific with telling me and showing me how to implement them.
We learned how to better communicate with our dog on the first half hour. We are excited to put the concepts into practice to help both our dog and ourselves. Thank you Esteffany and Bark Busters!
I either have the smartest Maltese or the best trainer in Texas.
Mason Erwin gave us our first training lesson yesterday and today my dog surprised me with her calm and obidient manner. I am enjoying my day without having my lunatic dog running around barking and biting. Mason is Amazing!
Our 9-ish year old dog has been scared of new dogs since she was a puppy. So, we were very scared about introducing her to our new dog. With Bark Busters help, she was down right welcoming to our new dog - much to our surprise and delight.
Mason has been so amazing to work with and has helped my 4 year old black lab mix Moonie SO much with a variety of issues. I saw an immediate improvement in her behavior as soon as we started our lesson. My dog has had some problems meeting new people, often showing fear and sometimes aggression, but Mason’s training exercises helped with that straight away. I was really shocked at how calm she became and how her friendly side truly came out even with people she was just meeting for the first time. She also had severe separation anxiety and Mason worked with us to find a solution that worked for me and my dog. Despite the fact that we needed to work around specific tendencies my pup has and constraints with our home, Mason consistently gave us new things to try and worked with us until we found a solution, and now Moonie is calmer than ever when she’s home by herself. Mason’s communication has been incredible. He is always available to answer my calls and he is extremely thorough with suggestions for exercises and solutions to problems. I cannot recommend his services enough.
Informative, Value added, Real-time improvement!
Mason came today prepared and ready to help Kai. He gave us the tools to succeed and Kai was already showing improvements. We are excited to accomplish Kai's homework and see more improvement.
We worked with Mason on our dog's barking and jumping. We noticed a huge difference in his behavior. We have worked with other companies before and never seen such fast results.
Amazing service and training session. We already see improvement in just one session!
Five star rating.
Mason was excellent in helping us learn how to work with our three dogs. I was thoroughly impressed by the progress that was made in just a few hours. We will finally be able to enjoy going for walks and having people to our house!
Mason Came today for our three small puppies because of their growing pains and aggression. He was extremely professional, clever, and funny. Our dogs responded immediately at we saw a difference at once. He left us with homework and more confidence. Would recommend at once.
Saw a difference in my dogs right away. Mason was very informative and helpful. I really found it helpful with the training aids.
The trainer is knowledgeable and we learned a lot from the lesson.
Mason did a great job of providing coaching on how to correct the dog. Both dogs responded extremely well. We look forward to seeing continued progress.
My baby dog is untrained and he reacted the way I knew he would, he is very stubborn so i know its going to take time and patience. I feel this would be an excellent fit to get him where i need him to be.
Mason is awesome!! He did an outstanding job in explaining dog behaviors and to help me understand what I had to do as the owner to make a more relaxing environment for both of us. It didn't take long for Graycie to warm up to Mason and change behaviors on the things I pointed out. She kind of made it look like I was making things up about here the way she responded to Mason and myself just in a matter of minutes after his arrival. Since the initial visit I had, I've been doing the homework daily and its paid off tremendously. Most of the challenges I wanted to address have been corrected. I definitely would recommend Mason to others.

Thanks Mason!!!
Mason helped us with our dog's constant jumping and barking at anything and everything. We noticed a huge difference in their behavior almost immediately. We are very impressed and would recommend Mason to everyone.
The training was thorough and by the end of the session our dog was on the road to breaking his bad habits. Would recommend this to any concerned dog parent!
Mason came in our home and really helped us with our 4 year old German Shepherd, Junie. Within a few hours, Junie was relaxed with Mason, understanding her training, and not pulling on her leash when we took her for a walk. She is aggressive and has a hard time meeting new people as she is territorial in our home. I was shocked at the progress in such a short time and can’t wait to continue her training so she can be a happier girl! Highly recommend Mason and bark busters to help your dog.
I want to thank Mason for a relaxed and fun training session for Milo and myself. He spent alot of time leading the behavioral change and then allowing me to do it. I certainly appreciate all the education and tips. I definitely would recommend him and Bark Busters to help me connect with my Aussie Milo. Looking forward to practicing with Milo and showing you our improvements.
