Let's get started

Hey There!

I'm Gabby. Your badass hype woman, ready to help you conquer your fears and crush your goals! I'm traveling the country for the next year to help as many pooches and their families become badass! We're taking our renowned training program from Buffalo, to Cape Cod, to you! If we're not in your area, don't worry. We'll work our magic online. 


What We Do

We accept all breeds, ages and temperments!

Do you feel embarrassed or nervous by your dog's behavior on walks or when people come over?


Do you worry about other animal's or people's safety when your dog is around them? 

Then you've come to the right place! Our programs are designed to build your knowledge of your dog's behavior.  You'll learn the "Why's" behind their actions, prepare for scenarios that were once triggering and learn how to make your dog the best they can be!

Get Ready! We're going to show you how to stop your dog from pulling your arm off, breathing their hot breathe on you when you're eating, ignore other dogs on walks, and so much more! 


How it Works

Book a free consult

Book a free phone consultation. Share what's going on at home through our contact form. What problem behaviors you are experiencing? Where are you struggling? What are your overall goals with your pooch? We want to hear it all!


Once the form is submitted and reviewed, we'll reach out to schedule a time to chat. There we'll go into more detail about your questions, the problem behaviors you're experiencing, and what programs may be best for you.

Everything is custom, the more info the better!

Schedule an Assessment 

The next step is to set up an assessment.  The assessment will be held in your home, in person, or online. We want to see the behaviors you're speaking about live! This helps us determine where our starting point for training is. Then, we can solidify what program and commands may be best for you and your best friend.


For Example, if you have a dog that is skeptical of people or has made some bad decisions in the past when people have come over, we'll teach your dog how to run into their kennel when they hear a doorbell ring and stay in their kennel until you've properly welcomed your guests into your home. This gives you the opportunity to be a great host and a great dog parent!


Create a Game Plan 

Once we have all of the information we need, we'll create and discuss your CUSTOM training program. Every family and dog is different. So, we make sure that our programs reflect that. We'll explain what commands you'll need to achieve your goals and why.

Get The Dog You Want

Once a custom program has been built, we'll provide you with an estimate of how long it will take for you and your dog to achieve your goals. We'll begin to teach you how to read your dog's behavior and respond appropriately to start creating a rewarding relationship between you and your dog. We'll break down commands and training concepts into easy step-by-step instructions at each lesson. As well as, show you what to work on week to week, to complete or surpass your goals. 

We want to make everything as simple and clear as possible. Trust the process. Do the work. Don't give up. We are always here for you. Do you have questions? Call us. Not sure about something? Text us. See your dog do something weird. Send us a video. We are always just a click away! We are rooting for you!

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.

I was at the end of my rope thinking that no one would see how sweet my Dolci could be. I had no control over her. She would constantly bark at anything or anyone that passed my house. Taking her for a walk was unenjoyable. She was always pulling and lunging at people and other dogs. She would jump on guests and I would lock her in her kennel any time I would entertain. I couldn’t go on vacation. 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,  we're able to go on vacation and walk nicely on a leash. I never thought I could walk her without constantly yelling at Dolci or "manhandling." But, by the end of our training sessions, we were able to sit at an outside patio with Dolci and others around us., peacefully. 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. Thank you Gabby, you are a lifesaver! I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for an amazing trainer.

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 during 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!
