We had the good fortune of connecting with Gary Cassera and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Gary, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
The comfort and ability in saying, I don’t know. Too often people’s beliefs shape their reality. Years ago someone said to me, “Beliefs are created when someone is unwilling to say I don’t know.” Knowing the difference between what I have experienced and I what I have not.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Dogs are a Rickshaw test. People are so unaware why they get them. How they make us feel. The unconscious qualities we bring to the relationship intentionally and unintentionally . My journey when meeting people to help them with their situation, is helping them realize the behavior problems they are experiencing was created by best intentions and love. People hire me to help them with their dog and end up learning its their dog that is helping them.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
There is so much to do in LA, good luck getting there ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s what my uncle always said. I dont get out much in LA so i wouldn’t be the person to answer that question.
