Bootstrapping: Earning Dog Training Certification While Homeless


– This is another behind-the-scenes story from the day that Animal Behavior College’s new TV commercials were shot. Angie Ade tells ABC’s Jason LaCour the story of how she overcame homelessness to complete her academic program and become an ABC Certified Dog Trainer.

An economy in serious decline, bad luck and personal losses added up to scary times for Angie Ade. But with strength, determination and support from caring friends (including ABC), she overcame her circumstances, relaunched herself as “Venice Beach’s Own Dog Whisperer,” and now proudly represents her business, community and school.

Our students and alumni are truly amazing people. Watch this video and be inspired. Do you have a story about overcoming serious difficulties in the name of completing your ABC program? Please post your details below in the comments section.
