In order to explain how wonderful Gerard was for our family, I first need to give some background on Zoey Elizabeth (my favorite kid/dog). We got Zoey from the pound. They assured us since her mom, a small cocker spaniel, gave birth to her in the pound, she too would be small. Well, she's about as much cocker spaniel as I am! She's a 60-lb pit bull/mutt. She loved her family and kids, but anyone else come in the house and you'd think was a "fighting pit bull." Zoey loved the grandbabies when they'd come to visit. BUT my son would call her "devil dog." My 13-yr-old couldn't walk her. She'd pull him along. My daughter was coming for a visit, bringing her hyper German shepherd. So, I called a dog trainer in Tucson (not Bark Busters). We went there for our first and only visit. The trainer spent one hour with Zoey, bribing her with cheese to listen. I think she ate her weight in cheese. We spent $75 for an HOUR! Was told it would take a LOT more sessions to get her under control! ~ I was then told about Gerard. He came to MY house, not a place Zoey was uncomfortable in. He explained how to work with her. The very FIRST day, we saw improvement! We took her to the park, and Zoey walked like a show dog! My 13-yr-old can walk her now! Gerard re-arranged his schedule to be here when my daughter showed up with her dog. The visit went GREAT! ~ All in all, Gerard was amazing for my family and my wonderful Zoey Elizabeth! She's much calmer and I believe happier now! Thank you, Gerard!
