I was at the end of my rope thinking that no one would ever see how sweet my Dolci could be. I had no control of her. She would constantly bark at everyone and anything that passed my house. Taking her for a walk was not enjoyable for her or me. Since she was always pulling and lunging at people and other dogs. She would jump on guests and I would have to lock her in her kennel any time I would entertain. I couldn’t go on vacation, because I didn’t trust anyone to safely watch her. UNTIL I met my savior Gabby!!!!! She talked with me and my fiance about Dolci's behavior and came up with a training plan specifically designed for our family. Now, Dolci uses and loves her place board and greets guests, without knocking them over! I never thought that I could walk her without constantly yelling at her and "manhandling" her leash to control her. But, by the end of our training sessions we were able to sit at an outside patio, peacefully with her and others around us. She was so well behaved I was shocked! I still continue to have Gabby work with us and Dolci to reinforce all that she has learned. Now that we’re able to go out of town without worry, Gabby is the only person I trust to watch her. Thank you Gabby, you are a lifesaver! I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for an amazing trainer.

Training with Badass has given us the tools to live comfortably with our reactive, bite-risk pup, and has given us confidence that we can keep him and those around us safe and happy. Throughout the three levels of the program, we saw changes in him – most noticeably around the 1, 3, and 6-month milestones – which was the expectation Gabby set out for us from the start. "Trust the process" is what we always say! Our dog made a complete transformation and being able to continue our connection with the Badass community gives us the consistent support we need to watch him improve in new and wonderful ways. 

We rescued Bean in November of 2019. After a couple months his true character started to show. He was very reactive, dominant and was trying to bite us and quickly became a hazard for our family. The dangerous behaviors really started to come out of the middle of the pandemic and I wasn’t sure what to do. I waited another month. Then the worst happened, he attacked me. I didn’t want to give up on him, but I didn’t know what to do. Gabby was recommended to me by a friend. I left her a message and she called me back within 24 hours. We started sessions on zoom, Gabby was patient, explained with great detail, and provided additional videos and tools to not only train Bean, but to also train us. She reinforced everything she taught, asked for feedback and never seemed frustrated with us. Gabby said it would take at least a year to get the dog we wanted. It was 9 months after my first call that I started sending “happy” videos to Gabby. We finally have the dog we wanted originally and are seeing more and more of him everyday. He is not perfect and neither are we, but using the skills and tools Gabby provided to us, Bean has his furever home! I have recommended Gabby to my sister, who also now refers to her. Then for Christmas I got my parents a gift certificate for their new puppy.  Gabby has successfully helped all of us!
