We continually update our education through programs such as those offered by The Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT), and by attending other educational conferences and seminars. 


We also keep up with  the latest published information, subscribing to most of the leading dog training and dog handler periodicals. 


CAP, offered by world renown clicker trainer Kay Laurence of Learning about Dogs, concentrates on a progression through the different levels of competency for clicker trainers.
