IACP SERVICE DOG TRAINER CERTIFICATION
The International Association of Canine Professionals Service Dog Committee (IACP SD Cmte.) is dedicated to the proper education of professional trainers, business owners and the public regarding the utilization and/or training of Service Dogs. Service dog trainers should have an extensive knowledge in training public access and service dog tasking so that the dogs are reliable when working with persons with disabilities. It is in its commitments to these beliefs that the SD Cmte. has developed a comprehensive certification test for service dog trainers (CSDT).
The Certified Service Dog Trainer exam evaluates training skills and the trainer’s ability to utilize critical thinking skills when task training service dogs.
