The Association of Pet Dog TrainersPublished October 20, 2008
The Association of Pet Dog Trainers (www.apdt.com) is a professional organization of individual trainers who are committed to becoming better trainers through education. This past weekend APDT held its annual conference and trade show in Louisville, Kentucky. More than 25 training and behavior experts offered seminars, demonstrations and advice that attracted up to 1500 new and experienced trainers from around the world.
The organization, founded in 1993 by Ian Dunbar DVM, Ph.D., has become a member-driven organization that produces educational conferences and provides resources to trainers throughout the world. APDT boasts nearly 6000 members, and promotes itself as a “voice for pet dog trainers.” The organization’s website provides a listing of member trainers so that dog owners can find an experienced trainer to help with their specific needs. You can also find good information--even videos--of helpful training tips.
