Association of Professional Dog Trainers

A professional organization for dog trainers, with a worldwide membership base.  Professionals can register with the APDT and be included in their directory of trainers.  The organization also offers training courses, an annual conference, and publishes The Chronicle of the Dog newsletter.  There is no obligation for an APDT member to adhere to any particular standards, philosophy or training methods, although the organization itself aligns with the LIMA framework.
