Certifications

There are no legally mandated licenses for dog trainers, and the term “behaviorist” can mean different things to different people. If you visit the website associated with a certification, it should tell you what criteria a trainer has met to obtain that credential. Some require candidates to pass tests or prove experience, while many others require only annual membership dues. Here are some recommended certifications :

  • Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers – www.ccpdt.org
    • CPDT-KA / CPDT-KSA: Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessed / Knowledge & Skills Assessed
    • CBCC-KA/ CBCC-KSA: Certified Behavior Consultant - Canine – Knowledge Assessed / Knowledge & Skills Assessed
  • CAAB: Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist – http://animalbehaviorsociety.org
  • DACVB: Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Behavior – www.dacvb.org

How to Choose a Behavior Professional

Help for Problem Behaviors

<<  Back to Pet Behavior

"I have taken our cats to the veterinarians at this practice and I can say unequivocally that they are among the best in their profession. They have the knowledge and skill to diagnose and treat pets, they clearly care about taking care of their patients, they are excellent at communicating to the clients, and provide the best in compassionate, up-to-date medicine."
