Meet The Team
Gabby, the owner of Badass Dog Training, has been in the animal welfare field for 13 years, spent two years as an adoption counselor and has been professionally training dogs for the past four years. Her journey began when she was given her dog Jacob (dog in the photo). This little guy's transformation from a dog who would bite people or attack other dogs, to now being a happy dude who lives peacefully with other dogs, has travelled across the country and is a regular at local shops around Buffalo, ignited Gabby’s passion for helping others. His transformation created so much hope within her, that she made it her mission to give that feeling back to others. She is dedicated to helping families who are experiencing the same or similar challenges and are committed to creating positive changes within their homes. To support her goal, she created Badass Dog Training, is traveling the country and created programs specifically designed to build confidence and knowledge through real life scenarios. When this crazy dog lady isn’t training or working on building the Badass community, she can be found hanging out with her mentors, friends or family, eating food (Once you get to know her, you’ll understand why we mention this.), chilling with the pooches, out adventuring or lifting some heavy weights at the gym.
Why Join Our Community?
Our skill sets range from raising puppies or teaching rescues basic obedience, who are a little too mouthy or may need help going potty outside. To dogs that have a bite history and are reacting aggressively towards people or other animals. To building working dogs for veterans with ptsd, depression, anxiety and/ or have come home with medical injuries and are looking to add a pooch to their team. Plus, all the pooches in between. Most of all, we're kickass! But, don't just hear that from us. Hear that from them.
