What is posted on their website is not what you are saying. Have a read. 🙂 I’ve copied and pasted – not made it up! ::)
my experience and fellow trainers and behaviourists i worked with and have watched, being in the a.p.d.t is only a posiItve thing.
Of course they will say that. It brings them in a nice steady flow of work because people like me who worked with dogs for a living, would recommend ADPT trainers because we thought that they had been trained to a set standard. This proves otherwise. :-\
“Membership in the APDT does not necessarily ensure all members employ similar training methods, nor does the Association set standards of skill or competence. “
Any parlour dog who’s owner had a problem, I would always tell them to find an ADPT behaviourist until I read their website!
