Certified Pet Dog Trainers Reference List

The Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) recognize the need for trainers to have a credible means of measuring their knowledge and skills while assuring the public that a dog trainer has a certain level of professional expertise. Therefore APDT helped for the independent certification and testing group, Certification Council for Pet Dog Trainers (CCPDT). This certification program is based on humane training practices and the latest scientific knowledge related to dog training. Competence and continued growth in training practices is promoted through the recertification of qualified professionals. Candidates who pass the exam earn the title Certified Pet Dog Trainer and may use the designation, "CPDT," after their names.

The following titles are Recommended Reading for those preparing to take the CPDT test. Best of luck in getting your certification!

Are you a dog owner looking for a training? Look for a CPDT certified dog trainer in your area and you'll be doing both yourself and your dog a big favor!
