Welcome To The Pet Professional Accreditation Board
Why Become Credentialed?
Stand up for what you believe in!
Hold a credential that not only requires knowledge and skill assessment but also a set of ethics and guiding principles.
PPAB offers the only Accredited Training Technician and Professional Canine Trainer certification for professionals who believe there is no place for shock, choke, prong, fear or intimidation in canine training and behavior practices.
PPAB also offers the only psychometrically developed examination for Training & Behavior Consultants who also support these humane and scientific practices.
Three levels of accreditation.

The Pet Professional Accreditation Board (PPAB) is operated by the Pet Professional Guild, the international organization for humane, scientific animal training and behavior consultants. You do not have to be a PPG member to apply and become credentialed through PPAB. You do however have to meet and maintain the eligibility criteria. The Pet Professional Accreditation Program is independent of any industry school, trade school, college or credentialing body.
Applicants who pass the requirements earn specific titles which may be used after their names.
We currently offer three programs: an accreditation for Professional Canine Training Technicians, an accreditation for Professional Canine Trainers and an accreditation for Canine Behavior Consultants.
