  1. Interesting to hear the focus on functional rewards for dogs. Intrigued by the food/bribery reference? Dr.Dunbar believes in fading food rewards quickly otherwise it’s akin to bribery?

  2. I’m curious…what is the difference between the APDT and the IMDT and why would a dog trainer choose to be a member of one over the other?

    I ask this question because when looking for a dog trainer, trainers seem to be members of either the APDT or the IMDT and both organisations promote kind, fair and effective animal training based on an understanding of science and application of sound ethics. What, if any, are the differences between the organisations?
