BonaFide Dog Academy Training Tip of the Day
There are many certifications available to dog trainers and dog behavioralists. Most are offered by companies who also offer a "training program" for people to purchase. Once the program is completed, the person is "certified" without any other testing. The Council for Certification of Professional Dog Trainers is an organization that only offers testing for trainers and behavioralists. The standardized national testing procedure requires documented training hours, references and tests knowledge as well as skills through a four hour written exam and a video exam. The certifications offered are Certified Professional Dog Trainer - Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA), Certified Professional Dog Trainer - Knowledge and Skills Assessed (CPDT-KSA), and Certified Behavioral Consultant Canine - Knowledge Assessed (CBCC-KA).
