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
