Pet Dog Training Instructors (PDTI) was founded in 2005, and formally registered in the UK as a not-for-profit company, limited by guarantee in 2010. Our aim is to support Instructors and Advisors who provide, or wish to provide, companion dog training services for pet dog owning families. Our whole training and teaching ethos is to promote self-motivated continuing professional development (CPD), to encourage science-based learning, expand personal dog-training skills and develop a deeper understanding of related behaviours.
The PDTI has well-established itself over the last ten years or so, with its annual awards course, teaching workshops, educational events, theory programme and finally, with a membership system using increasing grades to recognise practical, assessment and educational achievements of individuals. By helping our Instructors be the best they can possibly be, it enables them to support the dogs and families who come to them for help, in the most positive, successful, enjoyable and rewarding manner possible.
