Find a Pet Professional

This is an alphabetical listing of our Pro Member dog trainers, veterinarians, etc. who have applied to be listed in our directory. They are here to continue their education and they have agreed to the following statement:

"I keep my techniques up to date and routinely evaluate them to empower choice and reduce stress for animals during training or care. My business does not advise or use prong collars, check chains, electronic collars, and similar devices."

If you find that the statement above is not true for a professional listed on this page, please let us know. This is not a full endorsement of these professionals, but given the information above, it is a good start!
