Mason and Esteffany Bark Busters Home Dog Trainers San Antonio

Home Dog Training in San Antonio

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

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.

Becoming a Bark Busters dog trainer and being mentored by some of the top dog trainers in the country, and the world, has shown me the difference I can make in the lives of 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, so I started 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. However I never had the opportunity to own a dog in my childhood because my family would frequently move back and forth between Mexico and the United States.

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 San Antonio community and reaching more families in Spanish.

Any Breed. Any Age. Any Issue. One of the hallmarks of the Bark Busters dog training system is the principles we teach which can be applied to any dog - from puppy training to senior dogs, from Chihuahuas to Great Danes. We can help transform your relationship with your dog!

San Antonio North Client Reviews

See what our clients have to say

Sooooo thankful for Marcus’s help with our pup! She has been a menace on leash for over the last year since we had her. We’ve tried a couple different approaches with different types of training and nothing ever worked. When Marcus came to our home he explained why she was doing these things and made us see the problems in a different light. We quickly began working with her and saw almost immediate progress! We still have more work to do but with his guidance and tools he has given us, we so much more confident in being able to help our pup and guide her to the right path! Thank you Bark Busters!
Marcus is a very talented dog & human trainer. I was pleasantly surprised to see how quickly my pup responded without using treats or fear training. I like seeing her relaxed and not pacing, panting and barking all the time. I will definitely recommend Bark Busters to everyone.
If you're in the San Antonio, TX area and are looking for a humane method to train your dog look no further, Marcus is top notch, providing a clear plan and full support of all the dogs issue. Highly recommended!!
Excellent information that makes a immediate difference in the pups behavior.
Clear and easy communication. Lessons provided were focused on and the instructions on how to properly do them were amazingly done. Highly recommend.
The training was easy to learn and both dogs reacted well to the commands. Marcus was professional and knowledgeable.
I found the training very helpful and insightful. I look forward to using the exercises that we learned to correct certain behaviors and have a better relationship with all our pets.
Marcus was very informative, patient, and knowledgeable. We felt very comfortable with his training methods. He had two dogs in the family with separate issues and getting the dogs to meet for the first time. He was calm and friendly with all of us.
Marcus was great with me and Layla! Explained everything in detail. I definitely noticed behavior change within the first few minutes.
Just with a few simple commands, stares, and behavior changes from us (the humans) we have already noticed significant differences in behavior. I expect this will continue to improve.
I was astonished how quickly the dogs responded. I'm excited to see the dogs behavior as they continue to learn.
Marcus addressed the aggression and domineering behavior our dogs were displaying and quickly taught how to re-educate our dogs in a non aggressive manner without tricks or gimmicks.
Clear and concise information. Easy to follow directions that clearly show progress as soon as you try it.
The training instructor, Marcus, was very informative, explained how to teach out dog to see us as his masters, and included all the areas of concern in his instructions. Marcus was very thorough and personable. We look forward to working with him again if needed.
Had a Doberman that was misbehaving. Marcus did a wonderful job working on his issues. Now we can go for walks. The barking and charging has stopped. Now its our turn to work.
It was amazing working with Marcus. His tips are very straight forward on directing my furry kids. Great job!
Very good and knowledge of techniques and willingness to work with us.
Marcus was kind and thoughtful and demonstrated how I should be the leader in a loving but firm way.
Our two strong willed dogs picked up on the new rules surprisingly quick. All of our concerns were addressed and improvement in behavior was noticeable.
The training created new ideas and seems to be effective. At this time I want to improve on the techniques to make Rocky a better dog.
Training today gave me a lot of confidence that I needed to make sure we can successfully train our two pups.
Great session. I feel like I have some tools now by being a leader for my dog. I feel this is key to improving any unwanted behaviors. I'm excited knowing I'm now doing the right thing.
Marcus was amazing and really made us feel not only better, but in more control!
Really great advice. Really great patience with us and our dogs.
Very refreshing and concise information. Very detailed explanation on not only how to correct behavior, but also where the behavior comes from. Very comforting and helpful. We look forward to the future for our furry friend.
