Join The Pet Dog Ambassador Program!

The Pet Dog Ambassador (PDA) is a 5 level 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 recognizes these efforts from a puppy’s very early training. The program was officially launched on May 14th 2016 and aims to encourage guardians to continue training and developing new skills, abilities and knowledge. As an instructor you are licensed to hold and teach the PDA curriculum's in your area and if you are an assessor then you can both teach and assess pet dogs.
