What is the Pet Dog Ambassador Program?

The Pet Dog Ambassador (PDA) is a program for dog guardians to test their knowledge, skills, and ability to manage their canine companion in real-life settings. Its aim is to acknowledge the hard work and commitment that guardians and their dogs undertake to make their shared lives enjoyable and recognize these efforts from a puppy’s very early training. The program encourages guardians to continue training and developing new skills, abilities, and knowledge. 


All dog Guardians who have reached the legal age of accountability in their country (usually 18 or 21 years) are encouraged to become actively involved in the Pet Dog Ambassador Program. The program is suitable for all, including Guardians and/or dogs with a disability or special needs.

Canine candidates

These are dogs of any breed or mixed breed aged from four months. Dogs with special needs can also be assessed with adapted exercises. Dogs must have a veterinary health check before taking part in the assessment.

Tangible evidence of success

As well as the pride in their hard work, successful dog and guardian teams are awarded certificates at every level.
