Second Chance Animal Rescue Society - Reference Letter (2013)

"After our first training & daycare consultation it is clear 780 knows what they are doing. The staff seem very knowledgeable and the kennel is clean/well maintained and organized."
JAGGER - Google Reviews (March 2018)  5/5  

"I came to Adam almost 1 month before our assessment date. We had already been cleared by the vet, submitted the medical paperwork and an outline of our training history.

"The facility was great. Clean and a good temperature.

"Adam really listened to my concerns and was patient with me. I was already excited for our next session.

"In the next few sessions Adam determined the best way...

"...up until the final 2 sessions before our assessment, Adam had us doing everything off leash. Every time I put a leash and her mobility harness on, I noticed a marked improvement...

"...everything just seemed to keep improving. By the time our assessment date came up, I had no doubt in my mind that Roxy was well prepared. She passed easily.

"...In just under a month with about ten sessions there was a dramatic change. Roxy went from really good to excellent.

"Our lines of communication became much clearer. My confidence in her as well as myself has improved. I rely on Roxy for independence and that communication is so important.

"I can honestly say I've never felt better about my relationship with my dog than I do now. I plan to try to budget to continue sessions with Adam to introduce a few more tasks to Roxy's resume.

"I really enjoy our training sessions. Adam has been very patient with me and understands my limitations and I was actually surprised at how quickly I became comfortable with him.

"On occasion, as I'm leaving a session, someone else is coming in and every comment I've heard from anyone else bringing their dog to him is similar.

"The positive change in their dog amazes them. Or they've tried a few different trainers and got nowhere and were at their wit's end until coming to 780 & now they can manage their dog...
ROXY - Google Reviews (March 2018)  5/5  

"...With time and lots of work... he went from pulling you on a walk to walking beside you.

"From running away when you called him to coming to you when you called..."
DIESEL - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"Very friendly staff and a great facility. "The staff are very understanding to the individual needs of owners and dogs which is refreshing nowadays.

"They have a great understanding of dog and human behaviour to help you and your dog get the most out of your relationship.

"They take the time needed to explain everything and I never felt rushed in the process.

"What a great place and will be recommending it to all dog owners."
GOOSE - Google Reviews (February 2018)  5/5  

"...going to 780 since our pup was 3 months old. He's now about to turn 1 year, and we are so happy with the training sessions and the experiences...highly recommend 780 for any canine of any age."
PEPPER - Google Reviews (February 2018)  5/5  

"I own a 100-pound Great Dane puppy that was challenging me. Trying to socialize him at an early age, I enrolled him into other training classes, 5 in total.

"I also took him regularly to another daycare since he was 3 months old. Later, I found out he had no boundaries at daycare and would play rough.

"It wasn't unusual for him to come home with bite marks and scars on him. The worst part to no boundaries at daycare was how he played with me.

"He would try to dominate me, often biting and bruising me. I was desperate when I heard about 780. Giving him up crossed my mind... One last effort was to meet with Adam.

"I probably would not still own Bogey if it wasn't for 780 KENNELS."
BOGEY - Google Reviews (October 2017)  5/5  

"I cannot say enough great things about 780 and there staff! You can see the love and respect for all the dogs they work with!

"My brother has been taking his pup to 780 from the beginning and now with a stubborn Catahoula on my hands, we have been training with 780 which has been incredible.

"780 explains everything so well and works with us and our pup, making sure we are all comfortable and set for success.

"Thank you 780!!!"
RIVER - Google Reviews (May 2017)  5/5  

"... while I am not completely comfortable with certain levels of force, such as prong or shock collars, I am willing to try to help my dog...

"...My dog is one of the family and is my "furchild" and I will do anything I can to help him.

"The trainers are very open to my reservations and not pushy nor will they force me to do anything I am not comfortable with.

"In my consult they were very clear with explanations and very reasonable in response and expectations.

"I think training a dog is much like raising a child and if you never tell a child "NO" you raise a spoiled entitled brat, similarly with a dog if they do not know the word "NO" or the appropriate behavior how can you expect the dog to stop?

"We have now been training with 780 for a couple of months and I am so excited about the progress we have made and how well my pup is doing.

"I had worried that they were not "force free" but I now realize that not being marketed force free doesn't mean they are harming or hurting the dogs during training...

"...we still use tons of treats and praise and my dog is learning to trust me and ignore distractions and other dogs.

"His aggression level has improved so much we were able to walk down the road side-by-side with another dog; a Great Dane!!

"Also watching the staff with the dogs who are boarding and with the rescue dogs is amazing. The dogs are well looked after, there are lots of volunteers and workers on site looking after and training these dogs daily.

"The kennel is a great option for dogs who are not neutered/spayed or do not do well with other dogs as they get their own kennel area.

"Most places cannot accommodate these types of dogs. Great job 780!"
JAKE - Google Reviews (May 2017)  5/5  

"Adopting Thelma from Pitbulls for Life as part of 780's B.E.T.R. dog program was easy.

"Having free training sessions with 780 trainers was great and allowed me to learn about Thelma and see how her and my other dog, Coco, would interact.

"The trainers at 780 showed me how to manage Thelma's behavior and how to ensure that she could integrate into my home, without myself or Thelma getting overwhelmed.

"Thank you 780 and Pitbulls for Life for giving me Thelma and for making her transition into my home so smooth."
THELMA & COCO - Google Reviews (April 2017)  5/5

DIESEL - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"... The training that I received will benefit my new dog and my family for the rest of our lives. I have recommended 780 to several people now...the best route to go...
SMOOCH - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"...as our 1st dog showed lots of aggression towards other dogs, to the point where we couldn't bring her to public areas where other dogs may be present.

"780 trained us how to manage her, and now we feel comfortable walking through dog parks with her!"
NIKA & HADYN - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"All of our training sessions are personalized to Charlie's needs and 780 is never at a loss to offer constructive solutions that work.

"We are working up to using 780 for daycare and boarding for Charlie and we are really impressed that our trainer...will also be meeting Charlie when he arrives for his first day of daycare.

"We also appreciate 780's honesty about the work that my husband and I have to do and 780's advocacy and respect for our dog's nature.

"The work that is going on there is saving our dog's life and our home life."
CHARLIE - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"We were first introduced to 780 a few years ago at the Pit Bulls for Life Conference.

"We were very impressed by Adam's presentation and his philosophy relating to dogs as individuals and dog responsibility.

"His straightforward, no nonsense approach was something that appealed to us.

"Fast forward a few years and we adopted a 3-year-old Great Dane. We quickly realized our dog had issues that we weren't equipped to deal with, and we needed help.

"Although we hadn't used the services of 780 up to that point, we didn't forget Adam's presentation and knew we needed to reach out to him.

"The services provided by 780 are varied and all that we've participated in have been exemplary.

"780's training (of us and our dog) has been patient and encouraging...providing a level of support that bridges the physical distance between us and the kennels.

"780 always finds the positive and celebrates even the smallest wins with us. We have kennelled our dog on several occasions as part of the B.E.T.R. program.

"This is a program that goes beyond basic boarding and includes training and socialization specific to your dog's needs while they are at the kennel.

"We're able to leave our dog without worry, knowing that he is safe and in good hands while providing enrichment tailored to him.

"We have also participated in the monthly pack walks. This is a great opportunity to interact with other members of 780.

"There are no words to express our thanks to Adam and the team. 780's support has gone above and beyond anything we could have hoped for and we are forever grateful."
AXLE - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"780 is the only place we will trust for boarding, training, or grooming our dogs.

"We've worked with 780 trainers...to help us build strong training relationships with our dogs.

"We now have 2 very well-behaved rescue dogs inside our home. The training we've received has helped us to become leaders of our pack...

"...with confidence and knowledge to ensure that we will always be able to manage their needs...Our neighbours and friends are amazed how well behaved our dogs are and have asked us where we received our training...

"...780 staff are very friendly and work hard to ensure that all of our requests are met when leaving our dogs in their care.

"The kennels are very well maintained, and our dogs get to spend a lot of time outside, and even get to train and play with the trainers when we use the B.E.T.R. boarding...

"780 posts videos on their Facebook page and its a great resource to view training techniques confirming they receive their time outdoors. We've used their grooming services...

"... The trainers and staff at 780 treat each dog as an individual and cater to each dog's needs.

"It's been our pleasure to work with people who understand and respect each of our dogs' behaviours and work hard to ensure our dogs are always well looked after.

"To any dog owner looking for boarding, training, or grooming, we will ALWAYS recommend 780."
MYA & RUSH - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"Have been dealing with 780 for a few years and always was happy and satisfied with all the services provided...

"...always there when I needed them...have always enjoyed having conversations with them and learned a lot from them...

"...Most importantly all the staff understand that the pets always come first...
RAVEN & NAKITA - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"I cannot say enough good things about the service I received at 780. As a long time owner and lover of dogs it is clear to me that Adam and his staff don't just work with dogs they live for the dogs..."
KHALEESI - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"We have been struggling with our boxer, Dio, for the last year...

"We still have lots of work to do, but it's such a relief to know that we have the ability to be what Dio needs us to be.

"The support of professional people is wonderful! The staff are all great...The kennel is great, Dio stayed the last 2 weekends and loved it!

"I feel extremely confident leaving him with the people there. Also, very confident he can't get out, which is saying something as far as Dio is concerned.

"So, if you have a dog - check out 780, they are wonderful! I just can't stress how much of a difference they've made in our lives.

"They specialize in all sorts of training, they board, they groom and very importantly they work with Pit Bulls for Life Rescue!

"There are dogs up for adoption on their Facebook and website! Just check them out and share their page!! An amazing local business that I am so happy to support and share!

"...I will gladly spend some money to see the work they do with these animals. To see that dogs are going to new homes and being given a new lease on life is wonderful....

"...Supporting local business and one as special as 780 is extremely important!"
DIO - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"... 780 saved my dogs life.

"I truly believe that if this dog had been adopted out to another family, that wasn't willing to put in the work, he would have been put down.

"780 has taught me and my family so much on managing behaviours. The techniques are easy to learn and follow and 780 was willing to answer my panicked text messages any time of the day.

"Every time I met with 780 I felt more confident in being my dog's leader. The entire staff at 780 is wonderful, I feel like I get to hang out with friends every time I drop and pick Kane up from boarding.

"We do tracking on Sundays and try to make it to the monthly pack walks. We have even been to the free training seminars... through the Pitbulls For Life Foundation of Alberta.

"There is so much support from this establishment, 780 is the best facility around and I trust them with my dog's life."
KANE - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"From the moment we arrived on our first day until our last session, yesterday, the experience was fantastic. 780 was very knowledgeable about our dog Blue...

"They truly believe in a no-kill policy and that All Things Dog is manageable.

"That being said, when they agree to take in a dog from Pit Bulls for Life or any of the many other rescues they work with they are committing to it until that dog is adopted.

"That is a huge commitment in all their resources; staff, time & finances...

"Many of the dogs there would not be alive today if this commitment had not been made by 780...

"...I will not take Blue anywhere but 780 and any dog that we bring into our family in the future will go through all the training that 780 provided us..."

BLUE - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"...We went for our first leashed walk in a public park today and I felt confident and equipped to work through distractions...we were able to successfully enjoy our walk today!"
NAHLA - Yellow Pages Ratings (March 2018)  5/5  

"We started bringing Jugger to 780 nearly a year ago and we couldn't be happier with the training we have received. I can't say enough good things about the instructors!

"Adam (the owner) has gone out of his way to help us out on when life has gotten in the way unexpectedly and has been right there to provide guidance and advice whenever we have questions or are unsure of something.

"He has worked with us every step of the way. We are now bringing our new puppy to puppy class and daycare."
JUGGER - Yellow Pages Ratings (December 2017)  5/5  

"I've been seeing Adam for private training with my dog Mabel, as I work shift work and I wasn't able to attend puppy classes.

"Right from the start, Adam was super accommodating. Adam has a way of breaking the training down and you wonder why you hadn't thought of it before.

"He makes it look too easy. It's training that makes so much sense and Mabel responds really well.

"He is great at reading your dog and the needs of the animal as well as reading you, the owner, and what's going work for you both.

"I've been so happy with the results of the training and my experience with 780 as a whole. I recommend 780 for all your dog needs:)"

"Pit Bulls for Life met 780 in 2011. We have not looked back.

"It was immediately apparent to myself and dog lovers alike that 780 and PBFL had very similar views on individuality between each dog, dog responsibility & low-to-no-kill...

"...The trainers love these dogs as much as we do and we all want what is best for them; the dogs. We are very proud to share a facility with all of these amazing people."

"...I would highly recommend 780 to anybody with any dog"
ROXY - Google Reviews (March 2018)  5/5  

"...After the consult he was able to diagnose the problem and have a game plan. After buying a much-needed muzzle, we started short private training classes.

"We end the classes when Bogey starts to get saturated, not because the time is up. The training was personalized for Bogey. Adam helped me to train Bogey.

"After training for 1 to 2 months, Bogey and I have made progress.

"We still have a long way to go, but I'm happy to announce Bogey is not going anywhere, we are going to work through the challenges as they come up with the help of Adam and his staff.

"As Bogey's confidence grows, my bruises fade. Bogey has been using the other services as well. He has been going to daycare, where he learns all about boundaries.

"He will also soon be boarding and using the grooming service. Getting to the kennels is not easy, it takes me 1 hour each way... but it's worth it."
BOGEY - Google Reviews (October 2017)  5/5  

"I recently attended 780 KENNELS in Edmonton...

"In my consult they were very clear with explanations and very reasonable in response and expectations.

"If you struggle with aggression or leash manners and excitability and control; I highly recommend you give 780 a call and try them out.

"The $25 consult was one of the best things I did!

"Jake continues to amaze me... We fostered a male Pitbull mix and female terrier mix recently and he got along perfectly with both...crazy dog...

"...just when I think he won't be able to play with other pups he decides he loves some!!"

DIESEL - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"We have been using 780 for close to 5 years for All Things Dog.

"We started using their training services... Our 2nd dog was rescued at 3 months old and was close to becoming feral.

"When we took him into our home 780 was instrumental again in training us how to manage him in our household and around our family.

"Left to his own, without any intervention, he would have most likely ended up fearful of all humans. We never hesitate in recommending 780 for all things dog!"
NIKA & HADYN - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"After spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars for over a year with a number of professional dog trainers, my husband and I reached the end with our dog's aggression - which had only increased to an unmanageable and dangerous point.

"Family members were planning an intervention to have him removed as they were worried about our safety."
CHARLIE - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5

KHALEESI - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5  

"...He learned to jump our 6ft fence. I couldn't keep him inside 24/7, and with my new baby, I found it hard to keep up with him.

"The 2nd time he jumped the fence combined with how hard it was to socialize and walk him, I was at the end of my rope.

"...Dio has always been a smart boy and we needed to learn how to handle that...It was get him trained or rehome him. Luckily, we found 780 right outside Edmonton...

"...Every year we will pay our membership regardless of if we are training or using the kennel..."
DIO - Google Reviews (2016)  5/5
