APDT Foundation

2023 Auctions (online & at conference)

The Association of Professional Dog Trainers Foundation (APDT Foundation) will be hosting two (2) auctions again this year. Our first will be an online auction from July 24th – 31st. The second will be a silent auction held in conjunction with the APDT/CAPDT Annual Conference being held in Covington, KY from October 18-20, 2023.

Funds from the auctions will go 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 both academic and citizen science posters.
   –Providing scholarships for trainers, behaviorists, and shelter staff/rescue volunteers to attend educational programs and conferences to learn from experts in dog training and behavior.

Please enable us to keep giving back to the canine world by supporting new scientific research, conference scholarships, and funding projects to grow our industry by supporting our 2023 auctions.
