Beginner Adult Stage 1

Foundation Stage 2

Progress Stage 3

Each level aims to offer a natural progression to maintain interest and enthusiasm for both dog and handler.

Assessors must be Association of Pet Dog Trainers members.

The single assessments for the higher levels may be carried out by a member who has not been tutoring the group.
