Enjoy presentations by a wide variety of professionals from around the world.
The APDT encourages all trainers and aspiring trainers to pursue continuing education throughout their careers. In an effort to set a standard for what it means to be a "well rounded" dog trainer, the APDT has developed a Body of Knowledge.
The APDT Chronicle of the Dog Publication
The quarterly The APDT Chronicle of the Dog keeps APDT members abreast of contemporary pet dog training techniques and provides a lively forum for discussion of dog training and behavior issues.
