The Pet Dog Ambassador Programme
The Pet Dog Ambassador (PDA) is a 5 step credentialling programme for dog guardians to test their knowledge, skills and ability to manage their canine companion in real life settings. Learn more
The aim of the credentialiing programme is to acknowledge the hard work and commitment that guardians and their dogs undertake to make their shared lives enjoyable. The programme recognises this team effort from a puppy’s very early training.
Help us to encourage guardians to continue training and developing new skills, abilities and knowledge together as a team. Join us, as an instructor you are licensed to hold and teach the PDA curriculums in your area and if you are an assessor then you can both teach and assess pet dogs in the programme.
Project Trade is the Pet Professional Guild's (PPG) international advocacy program that promotes the use of force-free pet equipment by asking pet guardians to swap choke, prong and shock collars (and any other devices that are designed to change behavior or care for pets through pain or fear). Because we want all pets and their guardians to experience the huge advantages and long-lasting effectiveness of force-free training and pet care, we will give you great discounts on our most popular, effective, fun and pain-free training and pet care services in exchange for your old gear.
