10/24/2009 - I am happy to announce that I am now among a more elite group of dog trainers in New Jersey! I have passed my CCPDT test with a 227 out of 250! Passing score was 188. I don't know if that means I got a 'B' or an 'A', all I know that I am so excited to share this with you. I am now considered by the CCPDT and everyone to be a CPDT-KA, or Certified Pet Dog Trainer- Knowledge Assessed.
What is the CCPDT? The Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT) is a non-governmental, independent professional association, that developed a set of criteria and standards that a dog trainer should be able to meet in order to demonstrate their competence.
