The Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) is a professional organization of individual trainers who are committed to becoming better trainers through education.

Here's some of what the APDT does for its members:

  • provide educational resources to build dog trainers’ skills and knowledge
  • promote the use of reward-based training methods, thereby minimizing the use of aversive techniques
  • educate trainers, allied animal professionals, the media, and the public about the value of training
  • foster effective communication and cooperation among dog trainers
  • provide members with resources that empower them to build successful businesses
  • build alliances with companion animal professions.

APDT members agree to abide by the association's Code of Professional Conduct.

Ann Dupuis has been a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) since 2003, and a "Professional Member" (certified) since 2008.
