The Canadian Association of Professional Pet Dog Trainers

Welcome to the Canadian Association of Professional Pet Dog Trainers, otherwise known as the CAPPDT!  Canada’s ONLY national professional association for those who love training dogs. 

We are a professional association for dog trainers. Some of us enjoy teaching others to train their dogs. Some of us are avid trainers of our own pets and others are up-and-coming trainers.  CAPPDT is proud to be an association that welcomes members from varying backgrounds, working together to further the betterment of dogs and dog training through continued education and shared resources.  We pride ourselves on being all-inclusive, welcoming dog trainers from all approaches with a thirst for knowledge and a willingness to share.

No matter what your occupation if you love dogs, and want to learn more about training, you’ve come the right place!



The July Date of the AGM has been cancelled due to below-quorum registration.

Stay tuned for the announcement of a new date.
