2022 Online Auction

The Association of Professional Dog Trainers Foundation (APDT Foundation) hosted an online auction from August 1st – 8th. All winning bidders will be notified the week of August 15th, 2022 on details to receive their prize(s).

Funds from the auction went towards the APDT Foundation mission to support applied scientific research on dog training & behavior and to further increase the knowledge base of the dog training profession & related fields.

The APDT Foundation supports this mission by:
   –Providing grants to colleges and universities conducting research on dog training and animal behavior.
   –Offering opportunities for researchers to present their research findings to the APDT training & behavior community through posters, both scientific and citizen science.
   –To provide scholarships for trainers, behaviorists, and shelter/rescue volunteers to attend education programs and conferences to learn from experts in dog training and behavior.

The Foundation Board would like to extend our appreciation to everyone for their generosity and support of the 2022 virtual auction. Each one of you are an integral part of helping us fulfill our mission. We are thankful for all that you do and have done throughout the years.
