Pet Professional Guild launches Pet Dog Ambassador program worldwide
Tampa, FL, – May 5th 2016. The Pet Professional Guild (PPG) has launched the Pet Dog Ambassador (PDA) program, an international licensing initiative focused on improving and strengthening dogs' and their guardians' skills, both in a class situation and in the real world.
PDA’s key aims are to acknowledge the hard work and commitment that dog guardians and their pets undertake to make their shared lives enjoyable, and to encourage guardians to continue training and developing new skills, abilities and knowledge. Agility dogs, show dogs, obedience dogs and many other dog sport competitors already gain titles as acknowledgement for the hours of dedicated training undertaken. The PDA program ensures that pet dogs and their people can now gain similar accolades. Specifically, PDA recognizes the efforts made by dog guardians from a puppy or new dog’s very early training. Designed as a progressive assessment, PDA is a five-level program with each level building on the previous, working up from puppy/beginner to “championship” level. Click here
