I am a proud member of the Pet Professional Guild. The PPG is the only U.S. professional organization for dog trainers that has taken a public stand against the use of pain, force or fear in the industry. This organization is the only one that keeps current with modern science and what we know about dogs, what dogs need for a fulfilled life and how they learn. Dogs deserve to be trained by highly educated professionals who know how to help dog owners enjoy their pets in a way that never harms the human-canine bond. Owners can trust that members of the PPG have been vetted and they are who they say they are and they are capable of training without harming any animal.
