APDT Good Companion Awards

Good Companion Awards

The Good Companion Awards (GCA) set by the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) can be undertaken in a group class or on a one to one basis. The awards are open to all pet dogs of all ages!

 

Designed to be non-competitive, fun, and focus on teamwork between guardians and their dogs. Over the course of 6 weeks, the partnership works to reach set criteria at each level encompassing life skills and fun tricks, as well as ensuring guardians have an understanding and knowledge of welfare, well-being, and the true meaning of companionship. 

Starting at puppy, or foundation, work your way up four levels to advanced!
