Whether you're teaching a rescue Pit Bull for the first time, progressing from puppy basics, or seeking advanced help with reactive dog training, your goal is to lead, not be mislead.

Here's 8 benefits of hiring 780’s canine trainers that will teach your family how to lead your dog to the next level:


1. Easy Schedule.


780 delivers flexible appointments; weekends, evenings, & all holidays; to fit your family's timetable; book a ½ hr $25 consult over the phone or email today.

Appointments are not pre-set like group behavioural classes for dogs meeting twice a week indefinitely because it's imperative to have enough time for homework; to effectively progress with your k9; before returning.

Since most mutts aren't used to being led by their owners consistently; they saturate early during instruction; that's why sessions will continue at ½ hr with a goal for longer durations asap.

Avoid initial consults over ½ hr with in-home trainers since pets cannot learn past saturation; especially when you’re attempting to teach something new.

Instead, book a ½ hr $25 consult with our 100% money-back guarantee for the perfect learning opportunity & when convenient for your family’s agenda.

$25 consults come with our 100% money-back guarantee so that you can meet with a professional; risk-free.

Specialized lessons are effective for pups 6 months & older whether seeking basic or advanced commands as group classes have too many distractions in the environment for effective learning.

Sessions are sold by-the-hour with the more time purchased; more affordable; and no expiry dates.

If advanced commands with distractions are desired, your certified guide will introduce 1 strategic k9 at a time; until multiple pets are present, while maintaining a safe environment, and controlled outcome.

Each guided lesson, we learn something new, for your family to implement at home before returning for the next session; meeting until your specific goals are reached.

Avoid prepaying costly upfront charges for “guaranteed results” over-the-phone, before they’ve met your dog, and no refunds!

Instead, book a ½ hr $25 consult; and if not completely satisfied; enjoy our 100% money-back guarantee.

3. Reputable Experience.

780 delivers trustworthy canine training skills specific to your unique pet; not just adopt a cheerful attitude; if treats no longer work for your dog, book a $25 consult and learn reliable practices.

780 considers your pet's age, sex, breed(s), drives, history, personality, core characteristics, and most importantly; trust in your relationship; not just credit positive reinforcement is good dog training.

HINDERING not HELPING.

From 2016 to 2018, the Canadian dog population has continued to grow, population figures for 2018 increased to 8.2 million, up from 7.6 million in 2016.

The Pet Industry's media has elevated mutts to child-like status (humanization) to justify the cost of higher-priced products such as human grade ingredients in pet food (premiumization).

Public opinion & legal rulings continue to shift in favour of regulating or eliminating any activity harbouring potential for animal mistreatment.

Unfortunately for critters, potential is too vague a term for most tutors to grasp; as they selfishly humanize hounds for their emotional needs and business' profits when they promote that saying no = negative.

Now what do you get when you mix the humanization of pets with a generation of humans heavily influenced by new age child raising techniques from the 1950's that promote "never saying no to your children?".

Society has now effectively raised "fur-babies" without any rules or boundaries; claiming to always say "yes" (impossible); so unruly behaviours manifest into dangerous conduct.

LIFE not DEATH.

But when self-proclaimed positive dog behavior training in Alberta's Capital Region can't manage the challenging pet; they blame it for natural dog behavior and suggest euthanasia.

We are discussing the difference between life & death; not positive & negative. Unless your pet is a battery?

Calling oneself a positive dog behaviorist / psychologist instead of a traditional title doesn't change the fact a K-9 is a canine is a k9.

Sharing boundaries with your companion encourages mutual respect; anything else is cruel.

REWARDING not BRIBING.

780 promotes 2 concepts for foundational obedience; yes & no. Later we can introduce patience by a third notion; not now; that's trust.

The goal of 780's custom tutoring is to cultivate your companion's eagerness and repeatedly comply to verbal commands or hand signals, without need for constant treats; that's respect.

How do you teach an adult dog that does not respond to treats, toys, or praise? What if they would rather continue in their behaviour rather than follow your snack bribe?

BOUNDARIES not BLINDNESS.

Only teaching "yes" or solely administering "no" are both detrimental to one's understanding of boundaries in any relationship.

Whatever motivates your particular pup is used to shape new basic behaviors; while boundaries are established & maintained to proof consistency of said behaviors; through intermediate & advanced scenarios.

780 encourages everyone to be honest with themselves who claim to never have or will not practice saying no to their 1-of-a-kind animal.

If you currently use any kind of leash, collar, or harness; while on a walk; then you are saying no to 100% freedom in mobility. This applies to crating as well.

Logically, you could even conclude that not releasing treats fast enough or in large quantities; according to an animal's stomach; is a form of stating no; Sooooo negative!

Instead of gimmicky marketing jargon; 780 teaches how to communicate by your canine's inherent language; simplifying how to lead your hound.

POSTIVE PROPAGANDA.

According to Ed Frawley (50+ years experience; Leerburg.com), there are 3 types of all-positive behaviorists:

"Those who emulate Pet-Smart, which runs 100% all-positive courses and won't mention corrections in class…know better but choose to cash-in on the image of all-positive marketing."

"All-positive who love animals and push the concept but simply lack experience to know better."

"All-positive who compete and win in various k9 sports. These competitors do an excellent job of desensitizing the contesting animal to ignore distractions they will face in their respective sport."

Read the full article The Problem with All Positive Dog Training.

CRIMINAL ACTS BY THE POSITIVE COMMUNITY.

Michael D'Abruzzo (CEO of K9-1.world LLC est 1998) confirms the above title in his article:

"The Positive community, aka, the "friendly" community, has been guilty of criminal level fraud, negligence, and slander... causing harm to honest professionals; pet owners; the public; and the dogs themselves."

"There needs to be true regulation in this industry as to who can call themselves a professional. There needs to be government regulated educational programs that teach the real science...

"The correct application of all tools needs to be taught..."

"This leads to fraud for the consumer who pay money to a positive instructor and then discover that this is not the case. Verbal reprimands, gentle leaders, no pull harnesses, tugs on leashes are all forms of positive punishment.

False advertising leads to an unfair advantage toward competition among professionals that do not make false claims."

Read his very impressive resume & more False Statements of the Positive-Only community.

Avoid defining your dog’s behavior as positive or negative; instead, book a ½ hr $25 consult & learn truthful canine communication.

8. Personal Results.

780’s private dog training consults ensure instant results personalized by the owner & pet relationship; get your tailored $25 ½ hr assessment & book today.

Puppies are Unique.
For the puppy that’s particular to toys we won’t suggest the owner blindly offers treats during our puppy classes.

High-drive Customization.
If during the personal consult your critter displays very high-drive but doesn’t have the required confidence specific to security skills, we will not encourage further pursuits - just to sell you a service.

Instead, we may individualize tracking lessons to funnel their high energy.

Stranger Danger.
We also do not assume all k9's desire strangers to pet them; so, we don't act surprised if a guardian breed can't automatically be hugged face-to-face.

We won't invent a "scientific" term to confuse the owners instead of simply sharing it's in their genetics to be wary of new people.

Rehabilitation is Rare.
For k9's with no interest in socializing with others we're not going to encourage unrealistic expectations to "rehabilitate" them to be social butterflies attending off leash parks.

But we will help the owner develop a personalized program that at the very least encourages their companion to tolerate others from a distance, while focusing on their owners, so they can enjoy walks in their neighbourhood; worry-free.

$25 Consultations.
During your ½ hr tailored consult we will meet as you share examples of your k9's undesirable behaviour(s).

Unwanted Behaviours.
Through a series of questions, we will reveal complex underlying issues in simplified terms so that you’ll have an exclusive understanding of your pet's unwanted behaviour(s).

Manage Dog Behaviour.
Then suggest essential obedience to address the root problem which will redirect your dog’s behaviour to your liking or learn to manage it.

Step-by-step Specialization.
A correlating program, distinct to your unique scenario, will be explained to you with hands-on instruction.

Specific Tutoring.
We will help guide your pet through personal tutoring, avoiding trial-and-error, addressing all challenges as they arise.

At Home Goals.
In-home obedience exercises will be suggested with step-by-step goals to achieve within a timeline, based upon your schedule, before returning for the next hands-on tutoring.

Distinguished Communication.
Immediate results will be apparent as communication with your canine improves; 780 will teach how to see your mutt's micro improvements as you continue learning.

All your questions will be answered to ensure confidence & ability to personalize your dog’s training goals.
