You worry too much, it will take time and repetition from YOU. The trainer will show you what you need to do (usually very simple steps, we just dont think about it..) but the work will be on you. You will have to work with your dog daily, small session at the time. If you can stick to it you will be fine.

Trainer is Coming Today (Excited and worried)
So I am able to afford and have found a trainer, that I hope best fits Zelda and my needs. She is coming at 12 today.
I am excited, because i need help. I am a novice with a dog who is really an advanced case. With her fear aggression towards people (She has made contact with someone, and today i took her into the vet for bloodwork to check EPI, and she did a deep growl at the vet tech and barked and barked at the front office lady. When they took her back, without me, they put a muzzle on her. I guess she was jumpy and also released her anal glands, She is very frightened.) She has severe separation anxiety and she has a prey drive for our cats still. Hope this trainer can help me with these things, because it's been very hard, I dont really know what else to do.
I am also worried, because what if this trainer does not help, or what if i am unable to continue the training? I am worried, that i am simply not advanced or "good enough" for Zelda.
However, if this trainer does help. I will be so thankful and happy for the oppurtunity.
Thanks guys for giving me great advice so far (some more than others )and helpful critism.
