I HAD A BULLY DOG! LISA HELPED ME!
"I have two female Yorkie Poos, one of them was very aggressive toward other dogs. I could never enjoy taking them for a walk or to bark parks. Lisa Freeman worked with us privately, and in just a few weeks we were able to go on walks and even to the bark park!" Val, Lansing
"I couldn't ever take Moses out for a walk before, not even in our own neighborhood without having him pull and bark hysterically. In just a few week of working with Lisa, I can take him pretty much everywhere, and he walks right by my side, quietly." -Tony S.., Owosso

WE HAD THE WORST DOG EVER!
"Baby Ruth" pictured above was a bully dog too. Lisa took her home as a puppy, thinking she'd be the perfect dog to use in their Abuse Bites program. After all, she was born on 7/7/07 the perfect number, right? WRONG! This dog chewed everything up, barked uncontrollably, pulled hard on the leash, and wasn't potty trained until she was over a year old. She even got hit by a car because she bolted out of the house and ran away from Lisa instead of coming to her.
"I wanted to get rid of her a million times," Lisa says. "But my son, Brian, who was always bullied for being different and loved and forgave his bullies, would say, 'Mom, you can't get rid of her. She'll be better if we keep loving her and working with her, you'll see.'"
THANKFULLY I DIDN'T GIVE UP: Brian was the one that held and watched Baby Ruth during anti-bullying workshops. Sadly, Brian had a rare heart defect and passed away three years ago. But he was right--Baby Ruth did get better! Why? Because bullying and bullies can be retrained. Bullying is simply a behavior. With the right love and training all dogs and people can be better! Let's love our bullies!
DON'T GIVE UP ON YOUR BULLIES--HELP THEM CHANGE! Today because Lisa Freeman listened to her son, and continued to love and work with Baby Ruth, she is active in the Abuse Bites Anti-Bullying program. First she wears her bully outfit, but then changes into a leather vest that says PAWS FOR CHANGE--to show kids, teens, and adults that anyone can change with the right love, discipline, and training. In Brian's memory they offer a CHANGE CHALLENGE during their workshop where all students are empowered to have a CHANGE OF HEART like Brian and BE THE CHANGE for others. Recent surveys show that these change workshops produce an 89% change rate in students to become proactive in fighting bullying!
